“My healing journey began when I finally granted myself permission not to be okay. Not to stay there forever, of course, but rather to acknowledge that not being okay is a perfectly normal part of the Christian journey."
That has got to be my favorite quotation from Move On When Mercy Meets Your Mess by Vicki Courtney. Many times it is hard for us, especially women to be okay (even embrace) with our imperfect selves.
Vicki’s transparency is refreshing and very commendable. I think too often we as Christians conduct themselves in a way that makes it hard for unbelievers to identify with us. Some times we need to let others see our struggles.
Move On showed me that I need to be real and that “sometimes I feel like I’m playing a part I’ve been cast into, but it’s no truly who I am!”
Move On is a good personal study that would also be great in a group setting as well. The questions at the end of each chapter are very thought provoking and would lend well to meaningful discussions. This is one book I will definitely keep!
