“There is a great market for religious experience in our world; there is little enthusiasm for the patient acquisition of virtue, little inclination to sign up for a long apprenticeship in what earlier generations of Christians called holiness.” ~Eugene Peterson .

Mmhhhmmm. Just sitting with this and letting it sink in real deep. We are a culture of climbers, stepping on each other’s fingers to get to the top of the mountain. But I think the real beauty is in the steady stepping and stumbling in the hidden places of abiding, obedience, worship, fasting and prayer. .

5 things for this Monday afternoon:
1). @aldiusa is amazing. Feeding a family of 6 is no joke, and Aldi allows me to feed us GOOD food (and good-for-us food) without needing to take out a loan. 🙌🏽
..
2). Some joker hit my mailbox and rather than come and knock on the door or leave a note, they attempted to cover their tracks with a few nails and some shoddy handi-work. Not cool, stranger—not cool.💪🏼
..
3). Ive been up since 4 AM working on @refineretreat and some writing and but by 9AM I was nearly convinced that I am a complete fraud and I should hide in a hole until Jesus comes back. BUT THEN, I had a small breakthrough thanks to a short video from writer, @daniwriter 💫 ..
How has your Monday been? .

“What we hunger for perhaps more than anything else is to be known in our full humanness, and yet that is often just what we also fear more than anything else. It is important to tell at least from time to time the secret of who we truly and fully are . . . because otherwise we run the risk of losing track of who we truly and fully are and little by little come to accept instead the highly edited version which we put forth in hope that the world will find it more acceptable than the real thing. It is important to tell our secrets too because it makes it easier . . . for other people to tell us a secret or two of their own . . .” ~Frederick Buechner .
. “To be alive at all is to have scars.”
~John Steinbeck

“Yet even now," declares the Lord, "return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning; and rend your hearts and not your garments." .
.
Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love; and he relents over disaster.” .

Winter hangs on here, and it’s a fight not to wish the lingering chill to up and vanish already. The truth is, I ache for spring, and in my longing, I am apt to wish the days away in eagerness for what I know is coming. I am impatient for a fresh season. For warmer air, and longer hours of sun. I grumble through slipping on gloves and the wrapping of scarves. Enough, I sigh too loudly. But even if I bit my tongue, God would still hear my discontent in the echoes of my heart. So I confess it outright, and let the confession give way to repentance for all of the ways beyond the current forecast, of which I am dissatisfied.

I haven’t blogged in what feels like forever, but today I posted a new article. This is a new season, and change starts now. {Link in profile}

In 37 days, I’m going to sit around real (not virtual) tables with a bunch of women whom I admire and adore. I’m going to sit with women who have mentored me, and whom I have mentored, and for a few brief days, our paths will overlap in the most beautiful of ways. There’s still work to be done behind the scenes as I prepare to host @refineretreat but we are in the *home stretch* and I can. Not. Wait. #refineretreat #forwriters #soldout #itssimplytuesday

This whole album is AMAZING. You can grab this single from @christawellsmusic 👇🏼

Sometimes, I catch my people doing their usual things, on a regular Monday morning, and my heart beats a little faster. .

“Every day God invites us on the same kind of adventure. It's not a trip where He sends us a rigid itinerary, He simply invites us. God asks what it is He's made us to love, what it is that captures our attention, what feeds that deep indescribable need of our souls to experience the richness of the world He made. And then, leaning over us, He whispers, "Let's go do that together.” ~ @bobgoff .

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what God is inviting me to do with Him, and what the #nextrightthing is (thank you, @emilypfreeman 😊). It’s exciting to dream with God—and the perfect activity for a snow day. .

Where are you feeling called to join God in the work? .

A handful of years ago, God set my feet on a new path that began with a good, solid season in the refining fires. I shared that experience in a little book, and then wrote a workbook for those who wanted to plunge deeper into the heart of God. I never intended to share such a personal journey in such a public way, but sometimes, I think that’s what it means when scripture talks about not hiding our light under a bushel. I was on fire, and with my own heart aflame, I couldn’t help but share what started the blaze.

Lent starts next week, and I’ve been told, that this little book has been a kind of companion to some of you who have also felt the heat of God’s passionate love. This book is for the grace-hungry, mercy-needing, broken-hearted beggars like me, who know that no matter how good we have felt on our pedestals, that’s NOT where we are meant to be. Holy ground is low—and if we are going to find ourselves *in Christ* we’ve got to get down with our faces to the floor and repent. That is always the first step, not only because scripture requires it, but because you won’t taste the full fountain of grace until you admit how broke you really are. Repentance is the threshold of freedom. It’s where we die and resurrection can begin. .
.
If you need a friend who knows what it’s like to be hushed by the holiness of God as He singes the dross out of your heart, I volunteer. I know the contact burns. I live with the limp of the wrestle. And I want to tell you, that every brutiful hour in the Refiners fire is WORTH IT. God is tender, He is committed unto death for you. And when He has tested you, you will come forth as gold. (Job 23:10). .
.
This book is available only on Amazon, and if you want the workbook too, then grab the *expanded edition* with the red dot on the cover. .

I’m stealing a few minutes this morning to read some life-giving words from @kimhyland ‘s new book, An Imperfect Woman, and oh my—there’s a lot of goodness in just the first few pages! I’m so grateful for women willing to do the hard work of wrestling through their own refinement and for their willingness to share the wisdom learned in the fire. I’ve had the honor of meeting Kim in person, and she is a woman who lives the kind of grace that can only come from time spent in the hard-scrabble wilderness with Jesus. This book is clearly the fruit of such seasons. 😍🙌🏽
.

If you don’t have wise, gracious, faithful women in your life, I pray God sends one your way, and while you’re waiting, find them in books. Sit with their words and stories and let them mentor and minister to you. You could start with this book. 📚 .
