Product Description

In Anonymous, Alicia Britt Chole helps readers recognize the riches in the uncelebrated seasons of our lives. Times when your potential is unseen and your abilities are unappreciated. These unsettling spaces are actually the surprising birthplace of true spiritual strength. They offer us the opportunity to develop an unshakable identity, to discipline our thought life and to rest in God's timing--just like they did for Jesus.

Most of His first thirty years went unnoticed by the world, but that season of quiet anonymity prepared Him for true greatness...and made Him unshakable when His time had come. Using Jesus' hidden years as inspiration, Alicia memorably demonstrates how to resist resentment, experience deep growth and repurpose your own hidden years so that you will be ready to resolutely live out God's dreams for you with integrity and confidence.

    I read Alicia's book, "40 Days of Decrease: A Different Kind of Hunger. A Different Kind of Fast" and it was excellent. I enjoyed her writing style and she had a lot of thought provoking comments. I wanted to read another book of hers and I was not disappointed! The Book is better than the first one I read. I teach a bible study and have thought about using her book as a guide for future studies. It is very frank and thought provoking and makes you look at things from a different perspective. Doing so, proves very enlightening and helpful in whatever situation you find yourself. I am waiting with great anticipation for her next book and will be sure to add that to my library as well!

    Why I picked it up:

    One of my dear friends read this book in a dark season and said it changed her life. As she talked about it, I had a feeling that it might be the book I needed to read too.

    Why I liked it:

    This was the BEST book I've read in a long time. The author writes about Jesus hidden years and it is a beautiful, encouraging look at what it looks like to follow the Lord in your own hidden years. It was a GIFT for my heart to see my own hiddenness in this season in a new light. I felt like the Lord whispered to my heart that I am seen and loved by him as I read this book. I loved her words on seeing today as the main course instead of the appetizer. Hidden, unseen days are not merely what you do as you wait for the important work the Lord has for you. Today is the main course! This book gave me a new excitement to be where he has placed me, even if it feels lonely and unseen. Im already looking forward to reading it again.

    In seasons of hiddenness our sense of value is disrupted, stripped of what "others" affirmed us to be. In this season God intends to give us an unshakable identity in Him, that no amount of adoration nor rejection can alter.

    Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert. Matthew 4:1 The sky ripped open, the Holy Spirit took the form of a dove and rested upon Jesus, God thundered his unfailing love from the heavens, and then he ushered his beloved Son into . . . the desert? What? I love you, Son. Enjoy . . . the desert? Generally speaking, this series of events makes us a little uncomfortable. Can following Gods Spirit lead us straight into a desert? Would obedience deposit us in a wasteland? Could Gods loving will direct us to wander about in barren places? Evidently. From Jesus example, this appears to be true. We just do not talk about it often. Our earthbound hearts prefer to consider how following God leads us into happiness or health or wealth. God led me into a desert! (hallelujah) is just not the stuff T-shirts are made of. Even so, did not Jesus three decades of hiddenness already qualify as a desert experience? Yes. But in that desert of anonymity Jesus made peace with Gods timing and concluded that Father Gods companionship in his life was enough. From Jesus perspective, his hidden years were good years: neither wasted nor unwanted. Therefore, we find no evidence of resistance when the Holy Spirit directs Jesus into another type of desert. Matthew simply states that Jesus was led there.

    5/5 for me. Highly recommend.
