I’m a planner. I know where I want to go, so I like to make a plan and work the plan. I’m also a little bit of a control freak, so when my plans don’t quite work out, well, I’m not much fun to be around. Is anybody else that way?
Sometimes my plans don’t lead me where I wanted to go. It’s like my GPS maps are outdated and the place I thought I was headed is not the place I ended up. Or maybe I’ve just been following the wrong road.
And then there are the times when I’m expecting big things. I’m in the middle of a situation and I know, I just know, God’s gonna work this thing out. I feel it. “Well, God, I’m ready. Let’s see you move.” And He doesn’t. At least not then.
What happens when the place you’re in is not the place you want to be? What do you do? How do you make peace in that gulf between where you are and where you want to be?
Stacey Thacker, author of Hope for the Weary Mom, has some great ideas about that very subject. In her new book, Being OK With Where You Are, Stacey tackles some hard questions about how to handle it when life doesn’t quite turn out to be what you wanted it to be.
And now for the fun part: the giveaway! Up for grabs is one PDF copy of Stacey’s new book, Being OK With Where You Are! Enter by leaving a comment below, and I’ll draw one name at random and announce the winner on Monday. Good luck!
(And if by some chance you’re NOT the winner, go out and buy this book. You won’t be sorry. )
