I'm Not Ok, You Are Not Ok, and That's Ok!

I think we all can agree there are times in our lives that we are just plain not ok.  Whether your circumstances are by choice or consequence, sometimes life is hard and it just stinks.  There are other times that your situation is hard and exhausting, but you know it's for the best.  Like leaving a ministry to plant a brand new church, sound familiar.   

My beautiful friend, Stacey, has just written a wonderful book called "Being Ok With Where You Are."  Seriously, run, don't walk to get this book.  Every chapter is full of knowledge, experience, and action steps to being ok with where life has you right now.

Stacey covers it all from admitting that you are not okay, the dirty "C" word {comparison}, all the way to what God has promised you.  I am telling you run, don't walk.

While reading this book I felt a collective sigh among all the other pre-launch readers, like yep, I am not ok, but it's going to be ok.  The reason it's going to be ok is because God has made it all ok.  What an amazing truth to hold onto.

No matter where you find yourself today this book will encourage you.  And if you find that you are not ok with where God has you, you will not only be encouraged, you will find a sense of relief that you are truly going to be ok.
