So, I posted a week or so ago that I had been given the opportunity to review the revised and expanded version of Jen Hatmaker’s book Interrupted. I’ve been excited to have the chance to not only read this book, but share with y’all what God stirs in me. So, after a week to settle back in from vacation, I picked up the book today to start reading.
My “plan” is to read through and once a week (maybe more if there’s something huge God puts on my heart) share what God shows me through this book. Uh, today I didn’t even get past the book jacket.
Because, here’s the thing. Am I really ready for God to wreck my comfortable Christianity? It’s, well, comfortable. It’s safe. It doesn’t push me too far out of my comfort zone too often. And, if I’m being completely honest, I’m ok with that. But God’s not. And deep down in my soul, I’m really not.
Jen (because I like to pretend she’s my BFF and we’re on a first name basis) prayed what the book calls a dangerous prayer that started the journey that is this book: Raise up in me a holy passion.
So, before I even turn page 1, this is my prayer. Raise up in me a holy passion.
I hope you’ll join me on this journey. At the end of this, I’m going to give away a copy of the book to one of my readers. If you can’t wait, click here to purchase for 20% off through tonight!
