Publisher's Description

You can say good-bye to the person you've been pretending to be!

 
Life is often messy. God makes provision to help us move beyond our messes.
 
Oftentimes our first instincts are to hide, deny, ignore, or run. In Move On best-selling author Vicki Courtney helps readers come clean with their muddy messes, revealing the deeper issues they must face, including: 
  • the need for approval
  • struggles and broken dreams
  • shame
  • legalism
  • idols
  • Christian snobbery
It is in the middle of our messes, Vicki says, that Mercy shows up and offers us a safe place to process our struggles, imperfections, doubts, and fears. Once we face our messes, God, with his sweet mercy, can help us to get real, deal, and truly move on. Then with Mercy by our side, we are able to break free and experience the grace and freedom God intends.

    We All Have Messes - And Mercy Is Ready To Help Us Through Them

    Move On: When Mercy Meets Your Mess by Vicki Courtney is about the messy times in life. She uses candid personal stories to relate that no one is perfect. Despite our fake smiles and casual "I'm okay" responses to the "how are you?" questions we face every day. Life is messy. The sooner we admit to our mess and ask God for help dealing with it, the sooner we can invite Mercy in and move on.Specific topics covered (as written on the back of the book)are the need for approval, struggles and broken dreams, shame, legalism, Christian snobbery, and idols.

    Out of the above topics, the main problem area I identify with is shame, so I was reluctant to purchase this book and doubted whether or not I'd really get much benefit from it. Each chapter contains several stories (both person andBiblical) that reflect on similar messes we can all relate to, and ways the Mercy can bail us out of our mess. Each chapter ends with a "coming clean" section, which has several questions encouraging you to be honest with yourself and to identify with any or the stories you've just read. The last chapter of the book readily illustrates that none of us are mess-free, and that rather on focusing on how our messes compare to anyone else's, we need to focus on getting through our journey - with Mercy by our side. It's not about how many times you fall down, it's about learning how to fall forward - and keep going.

    This book reads like a conversation over a good cup of coffee, and would be easy for almost everyone to understand and apply to their lives. It's great for the Christian facing burnout or simply needing a breather and refreshing reminder of how wonderful God is. It's also ideal for the young Christian or those returning to the faith thatstruggle with whetheror not God can really help them clean up their particular messes. My only bit of advice is to read the entire book. Don't skip a chapter just because the title or first paragraph doesn't sound like it applies to you. You might be surprised by what you discover. 5/5 stars.

    Move On: When Mercy Meets Your Mess

    By Vicki Courtney

    This is a book I enjoyed reading. I read it over a long period of time because of what was going on in my life at the moment. I was also taking breaks to really consider what the author was talking about and how it may have applied in my life.

    The author writes quite candidly about life, and asks thought provoking questions such as the following.

    Why do I name-drop in order to impress someone Ive just met?

    Why do I gravitate toward name-brand clothes? Is it really because they are better made or is it because I want to impress others?

    Why do I engage in gossip, even though I know its wrong?

    Why do I say yes to too much and pack the calendar full with so many activities and then complain to everyone how buys I am?

    Why is it hard for me to say no to a ministry opportunity that would cause my family to get the short end of the stick?

    Why does it bother me when one of my friends has more Facebook/Twitter/Instagram friends/followers/likes/comments than I do?

    It is definitely a book I would recommend for ladies especially. Our desires to want to be liked, to want to fit in, to be noticed and to impress people need to be checked quite well.

    And this is only one of the topics in the book. I really recommend this book so that one can engage the issues of shame, guilt, low confidence and even, the skeletons in the closets. There really is a place where Mercy meets our mess, and thank God for the true stories shared in this book!

    I will admit that it took me quite a few chapters to embrace this book. It just didnt speak to me for a while. I felt like the writer was talking to an audience with HUGE hidden secrets, or extreme struggles with shame. I also did not relate to her 20 years of church experience where she was made to feel like it was a big faade, she was not embraced warmly, but was treated like she was unworthy and unable to make the cut. She certainly did not experience openness and honesty in any circles. I am thankful that this has not been my ENTIRE experience like it was for her.

    It did take a while for me to feel like this book was speaking to me, but in the end I really appreciated her thoughts and will take some important messages away from her writing.

    I really appreciated her writing about the difference between living as a sinner saved by grace, vs someone who has been made clean by Jesus and is now one of his Saints. When I consider this mentality, it changes me. Instead of constantly perceiving myself as a sinner, and falling back into that low expectations- I feel challenged to live as the Saint I have been made to be. It motivates me in a completely new way. When I let myself be completely overwhelmed by what Christ has done, I want to live up to my new identity. With the same power Christ used to overcome the grave, I can overcome sins that are entangling me.

    Heard a review about this book from KCBI radio station in Dallas. My family has faced most of these same situations and I believe the author speaks truth. I love the hope this message inspires. Bought two for my daughters.

    This book is jam packed, from cover to cover, with just plain ole' awesomeness. There are personal stories, excerpts from books and relevant Bible verses to showcase the message of mercy in every day life. Vicki is honest and straight forward, which I love. She shares her own stories honestly, even when they're messy. Often, as Christians, we judge though we should not. Myself included y'all. Whether that judgement is in silence or aloud, we are guilty of doing so from time to time. How many times we don't extend grace to those who need it the most. But yet, we expect grace to be given back to us. Vicki goes on to show that mercy is so freely given and to find the light in every darkness.

    This was a great read and I would highly recommend this book to anyone, no matter your age or stage in life. But especially to those of us who feel as though we have some sort of shortcoming. This book will challenge you and, if you let it, this book will change you.

    This book was provided to me free of charge by Book Look in return for my honest review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
