So Long...

Beth Moore's new book, So Long Insecurity, hit my mail box this week. I am a huge Beth fan. She tells it like it is and pushes me to face truth. Love it.
I am in chapter 5 and just thought I would share some quotes from the book...
"I forget that in order to really want to GO, something has to happen to make me want to leave where I am." p12
"The question is whether or not our insecurities are substantial enough to hurt, limit, or even distract us from profound effectiveness or fulfillment of purpose." p15
"Insecurity's best cover is perfectionism." p19
"But then change happens... We realize we weren't secure. We were spoiled." p25
"The more careful we are about what we're projecting, the more driven we tend to be by fear." p33
"Most of us have what I'll call a prominent false positive: one thing that we think would make us more secure in all things." p36
"To let the healthy, utterly whole, and completely secure part of us increasingly overtake our earthen vessels until it drives our every emotion, reaction, and relationship." p43
"Inviting even the worst and most unfair circumstances into the spotlight sets the stage for a miracle." p65
I'm excited to see what the Lord has in store. I know insecurity is my #1 struggle... let the miracle begin!!!
If anyone happens to be reading the book too... let me know... would love to chat!
