I don't know the season you're facing today. When it's not one thing, it's another, right? Waiting. 
Despairing. Doubting. All the various kinds of suffering possible, and there are many. 

The gospel writers don't skip around this reality: "For as we share abundantly in Christ's sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too" (2 Cor. 1:5 ESV).

We may not be able to sort out all the intricacies of God's plans in our suffering, but we do know one clear goal: to be mature and complete, lacking nothing. 
"Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing." (Jamess 1:2-4 ESV)
Honestly, I'm not really comfortable with this verse. If you're like me, I want to say: "That's really nice, God, that you want me to be perfect and complete, but I'm pretty happy with who I am and I just want to do cool stuff for you and be really useful in the Kingdom. Isn't that enough?"

Dallas Willard, in The Divine Conspiracy**, wrote something that has been rolling around in my head for a few weeks now. He lays out what it looks like to be an everyday apprentice of Jesus and then he says, "What they [apprentices of Jesus], and God, get out of their lifetime is chiefly the person they become."

The lesson for me in the last few years has been that who I am becoming is way more important to God than what I do. And that's not because His Kingdom and His work are less important than the kingdom of me. It's because my ministry in the church and in the world flows out of the person that I am in Him. That's just how effective ministry works.

The hard, internal work of conforming us to the image of Jesus--not just at the level of our actions, but down deep to the level of our thoughts, our emotions, our will, our reactions--is what God is committed to. It's what yields the spiritual fruit that changes the world and brings Him glory.

Now let's be honest here. Knowing this goal of God's doesn't make trials easier. In some seasons, every second of every day can feel pained. But, when we trust that even in this, that God is good and that He is for us and our good, then we can persevere in hope.

I hope this encourages you today. The screensavers below are to remind you of the good God is doing in you and then through you as you go out and be the person God has and is forming you to be.

God's goal for you + James 1:4 screensaver in English and Spanish


It's been SO cold here in Virginia this last week, so today I'm dreaming of sun and Spring flowers as I sit under my sun lamp trying to make up for my lack of Vitamin D (and general sense of joy).

Do you remember my first watercolor tutorial (you can find the first it HERE)? Today I had a lot of fun recording a second super simple watercolor tutorial video. There's also a free printable template you can use with it if you want. In the video, I walk you through a pretty Spring bouquet of flowers.

All you'll need are the following:
  • jar of water (we reuse yogurt containers)
  • watercolor or gouache paints. I use this set** in the video, but sometimes also use something like this ** with the kids (ours came from Michael's). And don't worry--kids' watercolor trays will work just fine too.
  • your favorite brushes (I like one rounded brushes with tips like these**). The one I use in the video is a Master's Touch Round 14 from Hobby Lobby.
  • (optional) tray for mixing colors. You can repurpose something from your house like an ice cube tray or buy one like this.** Watercolors can be rehydrated, so I love that the paint is never wasted!
  • paper + (optional) printed template that you can download HERE. Watercolor paper like this** will hold the paint best, but I'm just using thick sketchbook paper in the video.
  • paper towel for blotting
  • (optional) sun lamp for simulated sunshine

Here's the video tutorial:

I hope you have fun creating something that brings you joy today. Tag me in your social media posts or email me a picture of your results!

Paint with me! Spring floral tutorial + printable template

A few days after Christmas, my daughter put a leftover cinnamon roll in the microwave, set the timer for four minutes, and walked away. A few minutes later, as the cinnamon roll began to char, I hurried down the stairs after smelling smoke, and was shocked to see grey smoke billowing from the microwave. My son started coughing and crying in the next room. My husband rushed the noxious plate outside, and on a frigid 30 degree day, we opened all the windows in the house to let the smoke dissipate.

My daughter was immediately a hysterical mixture of fear and shame. She's particularly afraid of our house burning down, and now she was the one whose mistake had filled it with smoke!

Part of me wanted to chastise her in that moment, out of anger and fear, but part of me knew it could easily have been me who made the mistake. My daughter didn't need condemnation (or even instruction) in that moment; she needed kindness.

That parenting moment got me thinking about how God parents us.

When we sin, out of ignorance, willfulness, weakness, or immaturity, how does God respond in order to help us grow into wisdom, submission to his will, strength, and maturity?

Is His strategy condemnation or kindness? Is he constantly frustrated by our humanness?

The Scriptures paint a picture of a God who pities us. Jesus looks at us and says, "Father, forgive." He remembers that we are dust, that we want to do good, but that our flesh is weak.
See: Luke 23:34; Matthew 26:41; Psalm 103:14; Romans 7:18-19
Pitiful and weak as we are, God doesn't love us begrudgingly; He says that He delights to show us mercy. He draws us to Himself with kindness and compassion, not condemnation. Yes, he certainly convicts of sin (for our healing), but he leads with kindness.
See Hosea 11:3-4; Romans 2:4; Psalm 103:10-13
This is important because what I believe about the heart of God towards me is directly connected to the way I deal with other people.

Because we are all equally reliant on God's pity, writes Dallas Willard in The Divine Conspiracy**, we have no right to condemn another person, and if we think we have that right, that attitude is the very log in the eye that Jesus is talking about in Matthew 7:
"Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye." (Mat 7:1-5 ESV)
So here's what I'm concluding: Condemnation is not a personal growth strategy.

God doesn't use it. It doesn't work when I use it on myself. It doesn't work when I use it on other people.

I have often believed that if I am hard enough on myself and feel bad enough for my sins, that I will change. 

I have often believed that if I express myself convincingly enough to someone else in their sin, make someone feel bad enough, that person will change. 

What does work, then? Kindness, compassion, mercy, pity. These all reach out and say, "Even though you are weak and flawed, I want to be in relationship with you, and so does God."

God has entrusted us with the ministry of reconciliation, not the ministry of condemnation.
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God." (2Co 5:17-20 ESV)
Yes, there is a place for godly rebuke and correction (see Galatians 6:1). Yes, let's live wisely and not let people abuse us. And yes, even if I offer kindness and compassion, it may not mean personal growth for anyone but myself--because kindness is not controlling. 

So the next time someone's sin or immaturity or weakness fills your (metaphorical) house with noxious smoke, you have two choices:

1. You can look at the offender and think: How could you do ____? You are such a ____ (insult)? You don't deserve ____ (my love, God's love, affection, relationship, etc). 

or

2. Or, you can look at the offender and think something like this: You don't know what you're doing, and likely this isn't what you want to be doing. Your flesh is weak. I know this because I'm the same. Because God has shown me unlimited and unmerited mercy, I'm going to delight to show you mercy too and not deal with you according to what you deserve. If I dealt with you according to what you deserve, I'd only be asking for what I deserve--and I certainly don't want that.

This way of the God's kingdom isn't natural for me at all yet, but it's opening up a fresh space in my heart where I can breathe in the sweet (smoke-free!) air of God's kingdom. 

"There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death." (Rom 8:1-2 ESV)

Would you do me a favor? If you found this encouraging or helpful, would you share it with some friends who might be encouraged in God's love for them today? 

PRAYING the Word
I pray that I would first know what it means to be loved by you and fathered by you. Then help me live in that reality as I relate to the people in my life. 

QUESTIONS to consider:
1. Are you surprised by what the Scriptures listed above have to say about how God thinks and feels about you?
2. In what ways have you tried to use condemnation as a growth strategy for yourself?
3. In what ways have you tried to use condemnation as a growth strategy for someone else?
4. What would it look like for you to deal with people as God has dealt with you?

The personal growth strategy that always fails + Romans 8:1 Bible coloring page in English and Spanish


Occasionally, Facebook will let me know that a friend has marked his or herself "safe" after an earthquake, a terrorist attack, or a hurricane. 

As we face a new year, can I encourage to mark yourself "safe" in all the ways that matter?

Sometimes I face the new year with a bit of fear. Will God be there as He has been in the past? Sometimes I face it with some cynicism. God, you didn't really fix that thing I've been praying about. Are you even listening?

Last night, one of my girls had some pre-new-year's panic. All of sudden leaving 2018 behind felt like leaving something warm and familiar and she wasn't ready.

I'm in the middle of Dallas Willard's exposition on the sermon on the mount (The Divine Conspiracy**), and in the chapter on Jesus' teaching on anxiety, Willard sums up Jesus' words:

"'We have no reason ever to be anxious.' 'This present world is a perfectly safe place for us to be.'"

Perfectly safe. Really? That seems a bit rosy, don't you think?

The world can seem so scary to me. At any time I could be marked "not safe" on Facebook!

Because I'm a news scroller, I know lots of ways that people and kids die. Then there's global warming and the threat of nuclear war. I've gardened enough to know that my family would not survive some post-apocalyptic nightmare world if we were forced to feed ourselves off the random vegetable I coax out of the dirt.

"'We have no reason ever to be anxious.' 'This present world is a perfectly safe place for us to be.'"

Jesus doesn't tell me not to worry because it's cute and He's naive. He doesn't pipe in with  pious sayings as we pat him on the head and say, "That's nice, Jesus."

No. He's laid out a way for us to build our lives on the rock of His teaching (Matthew 8:24-27). Peace is possible in a walking, working, growing relationship with Him--the one who hold all things together (Colossians 1:17).  

Even in the crazy storms, I mark myself self: 
✔️ saved, not condemned for my sins
✔️ filled with the Holy Spirit
✔️ eternal life starting now and continuing to eternity (i.e. death can't hold me or my loved ones)
✔️ loved and cared for deeply and personally
✔️ called to a purpose--to be like Jesus
✔️ equipped with a way to live (the Word)

My son (who turns four on Monday) has been having bad dreams. The little felt figures we use for our advent calendar popped out and terrorized him in one dream. I took the calendar down after Christmas so he'd stop giving it the evil eye and shuddering every time he passed. As I took out the figure of Mary, he said, "She was the leader." 

super scary Advent calendar
So I pray for my little buddy before he sleeps. I tell him God is close. I tell him God is like a warm, heavy blanket made of sunshine that wraps him up and keeps him safe. And I pray for him to have good dreams. 

And it works--God works.

"Mama, tell me about the warm blanket," he reminded me last night.

Friends, if panic starts to set in, if the weight of all your to-do's or undones burdens you, tell yourself about the warm blanket of God's love for you. Mark yourself safe in Him.

"For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Rom 8:38-39 ESV)

Marked safe in this new year + a safe phone screensaver


Hello friends!

Thank you so much for following along this past year! I am fully enjoying rest mode this month: we are putting together puzzles and watching Christmas movies, and have already had two snows! 

I am looking forward to another year of creating art and blog posts that encourage you and help you encourage and teach others in your life. 

My friend Jenny, at Be Thou My Vision Photography, took our Christmas pictures again this year, and I love them, so I'm sharing a few.

"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it" (John 1:5)

From my family to yours, Merry Christmas! ❤️

Merry Christmas from Mary

I can feel it even now. The busyness creeping in as my day planner pages run out: Christmas plays, parties, the gift lists I need to make, the pretty new wreath I imagine for my front door to let everyone know there's joy inside.

My brain begins to spin and it's so tempting to absorb and manage every bit of information at my fingertips.

This, combined with a tendency towards gloom in the winter months, is my recipe for joylessness.

But I hear God's voice calling me to rest and to quiet, to draw near to Him over the next month as we celebrate the Advent season. We've been celebrating Advent in earnest as a church for a few years now, and I have yet to do it really well, but I'm learning.

I wanted to hop on the blog today and share a few resources that can help you celebrate Advent, but at the same time I'm cautious about giving you something else to scratch wildly on your already long to-do list, so before I go on, I will say . . .

We don't need SOMETHING this Christmas. We need SOMEONE.

Whatever resource or tool you use this year, let it lead you to Jesus.

If I can encourage you to step in out of the wind and bustle and plan how you can intentionally quiet yourself and "prepare Him room" this season, I would like to.

So with all those caveats, here are a few ideas . . .

PRACTICAL STEPS I WANT TO TAKE:
As much I can, slow down. Fewer commitments, no new projects.
Less social media/news input.
Simplified gifting--a combination of online and local shopping (like at my local fair trade/survivor made shop, which is also online).
Scripture meditation for myself and as a family.
Enjoy my kids and extended family. Puzzles, tea, snuggles, Christmas music.

A FEW SIMPLE ADVENT RESOURCES:
The Jesus Storybook Bible** + free printable Advent Reading Plan
We love the way the Jesus Storybook Bible articulates the interwoven story of Jesus from Genesis to Revelation. It's so good for both adults and children. We've read through the reading plan with our church several years in a row. 

My friend Amanda created this Advent plan that combines a daily Scripture devotion + crafts for little ones. I did this with the girls when they were younger and we still have the ornaments. You can purchase the ebook and printable ornaments. 

25 hand-drawn Advent Bible coloring pages in three sizes. This is a simple way to meditate on Scripture. The pages are not numbered, so you can use them however you'd like--a verse a day or two or three a week. Color (or not) and display them in your home with ribbon or tape. Send them to friends and family. Host a coloring night and invite friends over.  (p.s. If you're signed up for my newsletter or follow me on social media, look out for my winter sale on Etsy next week).

  


FUN RESOURCES AND ACTIVITIES:
I have a whole Pinterest page where I've collected crafts, printables, and resources for Advent and Christmas that I think are fun and helpful. 

I created this printable box for under the tree a few years ago and this free "joy to the world" coloring page, which happily made its way into the new Advent set!



Friends, I hope these resources are helpful and not burdensome. I hope they lead you to Jesus. I hope we can intentionally set our minds on "things that are above," because this world can look pretty bleak, especially when contrasted with the sparkle of Christmas. 

"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth." Colossians 3:1-2

If you have resources you've found helpful, please share in the comments below!

Seeking Advent Joy + a few simple resources to help


My son is three and half now, very verbal, and asking big questions:

How did I get out of your belly when I was a baby? ("God made a way, buddy.")
Who's your mom? ("Mamo.")
Why do I have to take a nap? ("Because Mommy needs a nap too.")
Where is God?


  

He asks the last question strapped into his carseat behind me as I drive.

I answer, "Well, God is in heaven."

"Where is heaven?"

"Heaven is um, where God lives. Well . . . God is in us too."

"You mean God is in my belly?" (This is super funny to him).

Way to reveal a fundamental gap in my theology, bud.

Thankfully, I was reading the chapter The Divine Conspiracy** about the nature of God, the location of heaven, and . . . where God is.

Willard explains that in an Old Testament of understanding God's nature, heaven is where God is and reigns, and that God has always been HERE and available to us, with us. Heaven is actually here, not in a distant, strange place.

This misunderstanding has profound consequences for our faith. Willard writes,
"The damage done to our practical faith in Christ and in his government-at-hand by confusing heaven with a place in distant or outer space, or even beyond space, is incalculable. Of course God is there too. But instead of heaven and God also being always present with us, as Jesus shows them to be, we invariably take them to be located far away and, most likely, at a much later time--not here and not now. And we should then be surprised to feel ourselves alone?"
He argues that to understand God's location, alternately sometimes we say that he is "in our hearts," but there are problems with that explanation too. Willard writes,
"'In my heart' easily becomes 'in my imagination' . . . . This ill-advised attempt to make God near by confining him to human hearts robs the idea of his direct involvement in human life of any sense. Ironically it has much the same effect as putting God in outer space or beyond."
So, I have begun to remind my children that God is Spirit, but that doesn't make him less real. He is just as real as your own spirit, the part of you that makes you who you are, but that no one can see. This is the part of you that lives on when you die. This the part of you that God makes alive by His Spirit and cannot die thereafter.

I have begun to remind them that God is right here, as close as the air they are breathing in.

When I am afraid, when a child is afraid, the issue of God's location makes all the difference. Is he way off in heaven looking down, or his next to us?

“In him we live and move and have our being" Acts 17:28

"But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord GOD my refuge, that I may tell of all your works." Psalm 73:28 ESV

It's amazing to think that the God of the Old Testament was already near, but in Jesus, God takes his nearness to a whole new level.

“'Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel' (which means, God with us)". Matthew 1:23

From the 25 Days of Advent Joy Printable Set (now in the shop!)
Today, I'm sharing this phone screensaver to remind you where God is and where he reigns. There is a version in Spanish and English this time for my Spanish-speaking friends! To download, click the image below and save to your device!*

            

PRAYING the Word
God remind me in my sadness, my fear, and my need that you are near. Remind me that you are not confined to my heart, nor are your confined to the outer limits of space. You are here, just where you've always been since creation--working, reigning, bringing glory to yourself. And nothing in all creation will separate me from you.

QUESTIONS to consider:
1. What do you think of as God's location?
2. How might a more accurate view of God's location influence your faith and feelings?

Where is God? Where is Heaven? Questions that matter to me and my three-year-old + a GOD IS HERE screensaver


I was reading Psalm 109 this week and thought, "Wow, David sounds kind of dramatic here." Most of the Psalm is David pleading for God to punish his enemies harshly, cut off their posterity, blot our their names and their memory from the earth, etc. The usual.

He laments:
"For I am poor and needy,
and my heart is stricken within me.
I am gone like a shadow of evening;
I am shaken off like a locust
." Psalm 109:22-23
I think I was feeling a battle of my values, or, maybe you could say, my cultures. My American culture values strength and stoicism, independence and individual freedom. 

The American Psalm might go something like this:
Pull yourself up by the bootstraps, 
such is the one God helps. 
Self-made hustlers,
push past pain.
Whiners aren't winners, 
so don't be dramatic. 
Ignore all the critics. 
Stay positive and
make lemonade from those lemons.
Only you have the power to 
wield your future.
It's all in your hands.
Your only limit is you!
So believe in yourself.

(Thanks Pinterest for the wealth of memes.)

Then there's my Kingdom culture, the culture of my God who calls himself a Shepherd and Father. It struck me that David's honest lament is exactly why God loved David and called him a man "after my heart" (Acts 13:22).

God devotes a whole book of the Bible to a collection of outpourings of David's heart--literally at the heart of our Bible.
"Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us." (Psalm 62:8 ESV)
God didn't value David for his stoicism, his bravado, his independence, or his puffery; He prized him for his honest humility. God drew near to David because David drew near to Him.

See, being honest about your feelings before your Father (and others) is not being dramatic; it's being human. And God meets humans in their honest humility. That's also where humans meet other humans.

There's no shame in being a human being created in the image of God, made to live in a dependent relationship with God. Needy is not bad; it's just where you expect those needs to be met that gets tricky. 

I know it's uncomfortable to sit with hard feelings, to say
I'm sad.
I'm afraid.
I'm angry.

It's hard to sit with those feelings long enough to bring them before God.

It's so much easier to run, to numb it, to distract ourselves. But the consequences of not bringing our hearts before the Lord is ruining us--with anxiety, depression, addictions, distractions, idols of our hearts.

I know the struggle well. And I'm wrestling here between these two cultures. How about you?

Today, I've created a shareable image below that you can save and share on social media to start a conversation (if you're so inclined 😉) or just save as a reminder for yourself.

click to save:
PRAYING the Word
Jesus, thank you that when we draw near to you, you draw near to us (James 4:8). Teach us to live as you intended us to live--as humans in a relationship with you. Teach us to pour out our hearts at all times before you like David. Let our laments lead us to worship you for your faithfulness. 

QUESTIONS to consider:
1. What do the Psalms teach you about how God relates to you and your emotions?
2. What are some consequences of not being honest before God?
3. How can honesty about emotions benefit interpersonal relationships?

4. How did Jesus deal with emotions as a human?
