As a child growing up, when things were not going right or life became too overwhelming, I always wanted to hear my parents say “you’re going to be okay”. Those simple words had a way to make everything seem better because the two people I looked up to most, believed in me and helped me to believe in myself that it was going to be okay.
Last summer, I read Holley Gerth’s book, You’re Going to be Okay-Encouraging Truth Your Heart Needs to Hear Especially on the Hard Days, and once again I felt a reassurance and a safety net in her words as I soaked in truths that were written just for me. I read Holley’s book at a time when I needed to hear those words to get me through challenges in my life and pull me through to the other side. Even as I was going back through the book now, I could feel the same peace that wrapped its way around me during the first reading of the book.
Throughout the book, Holley provides chances for self-reflection laced with words of affirmation. As you begin examining your own heart and what is happening in your life, Holley’s words come alongside you throughout, reassuring you that “you’re going to be okay”. Holley affirms who we are in Christ and wraps up the book with these words:
- God is with you
- God is for you
- God is in control
- God makes you victorious
- God provides for you
- God has a plan for you
- God is not holding out on you
- God is always the same
I am thrilled to be able to offer one copy of Holley’s book, You’re Going to Be Okay, as part of Barbie’s 7 year Blogiversary celebration. Barbie told me she is also adding a $20 Amazon gift card to this giveaway!
As her partner every other weekend at The Weekend Brew, I have been blessed over and over by Barbie and her willingness to not only share her home with me, but her ability to encourage and mentor me as a writer. Please join me in celebrating Barbie!
Thanks Mary for joining the party! I wouldn’t even think of celebrating without you!
