Dear Reader: A Soliloquy – It’s OK to be OK with How You’re Doing

Dear Reader,

I’m not sure how my words will find you when you read them, but I pray that they find you well and bring you hope and perspective.

I’m doing OK, alright, and well, and I want you to know that I’m OK with how I’m doing, because I may not be on the mountaintop or down in the valley; I may just be somewhere in-between.

The sun may not be shining, and it may not be raining; it may just be someplace in-between. So, if you ask me how I’m doing, I may just be someplace in-between.

You see, I have found that it is OK to be someplace in-between, because we cannot get there sooner or later than when God wants us to be, but we will get there in His timing. We must learn to be as Daniel did – OK in the lion’s den; and we must learn to be as the three Hebrew boys were – OK in the fiery furnace.

We have no need for a mask, and we have no need to pretend, because the Lord can be found in our valleys and on the mountaintops, too. We find Him in the sunshine and rain, and, Beloved, we can most certainly find Him in the in-between.

So, be at peace, Dear Reader, and don’t let your heart be anxious, Beloved, because you truly can find the Lord and the beauty of His presence in the someplace in-between. Continue to take things one step at a time, you beautiful and resilient soul, and continue to persevere because each step will bring you higher and move you forward from the in-between.

Dear Reader, continue to trust God even in the most difficult places, because He will see to it that you make it to the destination of His promises. I want you to know that you are not alone, and it is my prayer that this column will make you feel as though you have a place to belong and somewhere to call home.

Share your story and prayer requests below and at, and our team will be sure to keep you lifted in our prayers.

P.S., Yours Truly,


The Writer, Seneca Howard
