Most people will live their entire lives attempting to clean up their messes on their own or will hide their messes under a multitude of modern-day fig leaves. Are you weary of hiding and pretending? If so, it’s time to find the courage to come clean about the mess you are. It’s time to lay your heart and soul bare before the Lord and say, “I’m not okay, and I need your help.” Once you face your messes, God—in his sweet mercy—will help you get real, deal, and truly move on. So say goodbye to that person you’ve been pretending to be and celebrate the person God created you to be: a gloriously imperfect mess who is loved by a perfect and holy God.
Speaker and bestselling author Vicki Courtney shows how we can acknowledge the messes in our lives, accept God's mercy for them, and then get real, deal, and move on.
Session 3, "Us and Them," teaches that Jesus is your ultimate role model when it comes to extending genuine kindness to others and urges you to stop talking about other people groups and start loving them.
