Emotionally Healthy You Series

Its okay to ask verse

Emotionally Healthy You Series. Our first in a line of series for a healthy you, emotionally, and spiritually.   We're starting the Emotionally Healthy You  series with "It's Ok To Ask". 

Sometimes we're afraid to ask basic questions to gain clarity, for understanding or to ask someone to respect our boundaries.  We have to develop the self-awareness and the self confidence to be able to ask for what we need.

It's better to ask than to pretend you don't have needs. This concept can be found in the Christian Scripture text of 1 Corinthians. In chapter 12, Paul explains to this church the importance of working as a body and not as a bunch of miscellaneous body parts. Just as the body can only function when working as a unit, so each of us can only be successful and emotionally healthy socially and individually if we abide by the methodology that "It's Ok To Ask." This has to be adhered to by us and others if we want to see things happen for the benefit of all.

Emotionally Healthy You Series


Emotional health is not the same as mental health.  Good emotional health is essential for self-awareness, resilience, and contentment.  When someone has struggled with homelessness or abuse, their emotional health may need a boost.  From time to time, they may need to be reminded that their voice matters, that they matter. 

Good emotional health means having the resources and skills to cope with the ups and downs of day to day life.

Someone in good emotional health usually has higher self-esteem and more self confidence.  Good emotional health helps you see the best in yourself and others despite the challenges that occur.

Emotionally healthy people often have deeper friendships and relationships because they are able to compromise, have empathy, and the ability to talk through things instead of argue.

Practicing "It's Ok To Ask" is essential for all of our relationships, whether with others or our own minds. Believe it or not, we battle ourselves with this a lot of times in our own minds!

A small example of this could be if your partner likes the house organized in a particular way; their reasons for this are for tidiness, cleanliness, and to avoid confusion on where things are. As their partner, you can respond in 1 of 2 ways: "it isn't that big of a deal" and you neglect their desire from time to time, or "I hear what they are saying and those are good reasons!" and you take time to add to their tidy, cleanly, and organizational goals for your home. The 2nd is by far the best way to go!

This may seem like a small example, but in practicing "It's Ok To Ask" for small things, you prepare yourself for much bigger things and avoid these small things from building and building into a much bigger problem. The goal of this is to be approachable for others so that they know "It's Ok To Ask" you, and it is a good thing to hold others to this same accountability. As we see in 1 Corinthians 12, we are all one body socially and individually.

If you or someone you know struggles with emotional health, consider working with a professional therapist to gain clarity and identify the aspects of emotional health that you want to improve.  They can help you develop a plan.

Let's pray,

Dear Lord Jesus,

In your divine presence, we humbly seek the path to emotional health and well-being. We offer our gratitude for Your boundless love and unwavering guidance.

As we embark on this journey, we recognize the importance of releasing our burdens into Your loving care. You bore the weight of the world's sorrows, and in You, we find the strength to confront our fears, the courage to face our doubts, and the compassion to extend forgiveness – to others and ourselves.

Guide us, O Lord, in developing emotional intelligence and resilience. Grant us the wisdom to understand our emotions and the courage to express them in healthy ways. Help us see that emotions are not obstacles but tools to navigate the complexities of life.

Grant us the patience to be slow to anger, the wisdom to listen with empathy, and the grace to extend kindness to those we encounter on our journey. In this process, may we also find the strength to forgive those who have wronged us, knowing that forgiveness brings healing to our own wounded hearts.

Let Your peace, which surpasses all understanding, be our constant companion, guarding our hearts and minds. May we trust in Your providence and find calm in the midst of life's storms, knowing that You work all things for good.

May our speech be filled with grace, offering encouragement and hope to others. May our thoughts dwell on things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and of good repute.

Grant us the strength to set healthy boundaries in our relationships, to discern when to say "yes" and when to say "no." Help us to prioritize the well-being of ourselves and others.

Finally, Lord, grant us the patience to be kind to ourselves as we journey toward emotional health, understanding that transformation is a process. We rely on Your grace and guidance every step of the way.

In Your holy and precious name, Jesus, we offer these prayers. May our lives be a testament to Your grace, love, and transformative power. Amen.
