    Yea! I’m home today! Oh no! I’ll be leaving about 10:45 to go to the dentist, so I guess I’ll miss Kelly’s celebration and will barely get in on Beth’s devotion,but I will jump in at 10:30 sharp!

    I’m so disappointed! I had my time zones mixed up and I’m going to miss it! Instead, I started my day with a “Wising Up” video, “How Wisdom Looks on a Wife” โ€” Loved it! Have a great time, girls!

    I have been asked to speak 5 minutes during the sermon on Sunday on satanic attack and taking every thought captive. What an AMAZING COINCIDENCE (not really) that you spoke on this today. Thank you so much for affirming what God was telling me to say on Sunday.

    Beth – God is amazing!! I type with tears in my eyes. My teenage daughter has been battling anxiety in a huge way. It has been the hardest battle our family has had to go thru at this point. She recently started seeing a Christian counselor (has gone 2 times) and today we were both anxiously looking forward to the session when the counselor had to cancel. I was so discouraged because I was praying that something that was said today in the counselors office would click and help. So, when I sat down to listen to this live stream and you mentioned anxiety I was drop jawed! I took notes and I will share with my daughter when she gets home from school. How just like God to make sure I hear this today. Thanks for listening to Him and for sharing this with me.

      You can go back to that link and the devotion is there so you can watch it again…..with your daughter. Blessings.

      • Sandy says:

        It wouldn’t work on my computer at 10:30 CST. I went back just now, turned off my pop up blocker, and it acted like it was going to work, but has the colored vertical stripes and says off line. It souunds like it was a message I could have really used to encourage my 22 year old daughter. Wish I could have gotten it to work!

        • Sandy Bowers says:

          Did you look down at the bottom left side of the page? There should be two previous videos there….one from the first livestream and then this past one. You should be able to click on that one down there. I hope it works for you!

    I do not know how to “chat” however I want to tell how “PROFOUND”, may I say “PROFOUND” again, your words are to my husband and to me this morning- I’m just sure God sent your message and ministry just for us!!!!!! The timing is more miraculous than I could explain

    What a word dear Sister in Christ- blessings to you and yours and much love

    Nitsa says:

    Thank you, Beth. I absolutely needed this today. We were just hit with some devastating news about my husband’s health and I have been consumed with anxiety. This gives me hope and encouragement. I now have a weapon against the enemy. Thank you for being faithful.

    Joyce Watson says:

    I watched the new movie, “Moby Dick” last night. The man seem so determined and obsessed with killing this whale that he became entangled into his own venture which lead finally to his death at sea.
    We weren’t made to fight our battles alone. God is only one who can take care of the monsters in our lives. When we try fighting alone, we fall into our own deep entanglement that leads deeper and deeper into the dark sea of death. Dependence on God can lead us to victory. He will lead us out of the darkness into the light. He will protect us and give us guidance.
    I had no idea what you were going to speak on and posted the above this morning on my fb, guess we thinking similar thoughts. It seems God takes from casting all our cares to letting Him fight the storms of our lives. He is our rescuer.
    Thank you so much Beth for sharing from your heart!

    Thank You Siesta Mama!!!

    I needed to hear these words so badly. Your vivid examples really hit home. I was just outside praying about the burdens on my heart. I completely forgot about the session today, and was trying to get online to check a message and looked at my bookmarks. Then I just felt alarms going off when I saw my LPM BLOG bookmark. Suddenly I remembered about the live session, PRAISE GOD!!!

    Once again, Thank you for being so eager to share with us when He has a Word for you to share! Blessings and a H.U.G.E. HUG!

    Thanks, Lindsee for your sweet spirit and all the hard work you do to make these Livestreams a reality. Now, I have a question. Is there a charge for a livestream account and how in the world do I sign up and get a password? I’m thankful that I was able to watch the devotional, but next time I’d like to participate and in order to do so, I’ll need to log in with a user name and password. Can you help me?
    Hugs and blessings,
    Patti Hayes

      Lindsee says:

      Patti, there is no charge. You should be able to log on, create a username, and you should be good to go. They may ask you for a password, but since I’ve never been on that side of it, I’m not sure. I hope that is helpful!

      • Patti Hayes says:

        Lindsee – thanks for your reply. They did ask for a password, so I made one up and the response was “incorrect password” I’ll try again next time. Is there another siesta who has run into this?

    Colleen says:


    This is my DAUGHTER–my ONLY child–I poured my heart and soul into raising-I love her dearly–she has this EXACT problem I do– GREAT fear an axiety over her life–THIS is how she got to this point–not casting it on God –but–rather trying to deal with her issues on her own–but–I am in the same place SHE is–trying so haed to fix her myself.
    I have had to live by this word many times–but–somehow with her I am sooooo driven with fear. I begged God for a word–you brought it–now I pray I can live it out.
    Months ago God gave me a direct word to “Walk this thing by Faith” I wouldn’t–maybe we wouldn’t be here if I had. PLEASE–Beth pray for me–for us. Thank-you

    Betty M says:

    Loved the Livestream the devotions are just so good and to have the prayer time together with the sister hood is so great. I have something to say that is not gona be popular but I know you have said this different times too Beth. When I looked at the things most people wrote on the blog as thier biggest concerns and granted you did say OUR biggest concerns so I may be totally misreading it. So many times we get so wrapped up in our little worlds. The day I quit popping antianxiety pills was the day I quit looking inward and downward and started looking outward and upward. Now, I still get anxious moments goodness knows there is enuf out there to paralyze us with fear but it is not all about us!!! We are so narcissitic! We always worry more about what God can do for us instead of what we can do for God. It seems when I get wrapped up more in trying to figure out what I can do to make someone else’s day brighter, I get less anxious. I sometimes wake up at night and that old fearful attitude starts taking ahold and I start to worry. Then I pray that my faith would increase and I pour over the Word and almost instantly the fear and anxiety go away. There is power in the Word that is why it is so important to write it on our hearts. Thanks again for this livestreaming it is a real blessing. Could not get Kelly M launch party to work but maybe there will be a rerun at some point! Blessings to you, Love ya lots in Jesus! Betty M

    The livestream message was great today! It was just what I needed to hear to solve my most anxiety causing problem right now! I kneeled with you and prayed and threw that anxiety to God for his care. Wow! What a relief!
    Thanks Beth!

    Couldn’t make the livestream, but I just watched it, and, WOW! What a difference one word can make in understanding the real ‘jist’ of a passage! Thanks for sharing that with us, Beth! You talked about how we can be proud of our humility. I can also be proud of my care casting ability, unfortunately!! This is a word that will stick with me, I have no doubt. Thank you for being God’s willing vessel. Love you!

    This response is not directed to the Livestream webcast today. This post is in regards to Beth’s new study James!! Beth, I just wanted to say to you and Melissa both WOW!! I currently just finished week two with my small group and we all were in agreement that after this study we can retake the SAT and probably score a little higher. Hee Hee!! Thank you for the 5 different levels. I am totally enjoying it. Hey, how about bringing it up to a level six by giving us a challenging crossword puzzle. Laughing as I’m typing this but I’m truly serious. Thank you for your obedience to the Lord. You have been such a blessing to all of us!!

    Your Bible Study Buddy,

    Loved seing Ms. Beth live this morning. I had just arrived home from leading our first session of the Daniel study, just in time to catch the live session. This is the 2nd time studying Daniel, but just as excited (if not more) this time around. Can’t wait to see what God has for our group!!

    So good to see you live even though I work during the day! I love that the link has you available “after hours”.

    Anxiety is my “pet sin” which I renamed as Unbelief and I am taking it to the pound! God’s word has been my salvation from worry. Thanks for the encouragement!!

    Dear Beth,

    Our God is so amazing! Only this morning as I was getting ready for work I was feeling so anxious. The Lord brought that verse in Philipians 4:6-7 to mind — Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. I wasn’t able to join you for the live stream, but was able to watch it after I got home from work. That was a WORD! I had never made the connection between lack of faith, pride, and anxiety, but there it is! Thank you so much for sharing what was on your heart – I am believing it will make the difference and bring about some victory. The NET rendering of the verse in 1 Peter was revolutionary. The reality that it is BY casting our cares upon Him that we humble ourselves is huge.

    I will be keeping all of us in my prayers as we tackle this all too common struggle.

    Loved yesterday’s devotion – and OH MY did I have the opportunity to use it later in the day! I wound up my pitching arm and threw that anxiety, pain and hurt straight at my Jesus! I am amazed how God gives us just what we need, just when we need it! Thanks Beth, for being open to let Him speak those words through you! Hugs!

    dora says:

    You won’t believe this, but five minutes before you went on line I received a phone call from someone that causes me GREAT anxiety. My stomach flips every time this person calls because it is usually a crisis. I hung up the phone jumped on the computer and hear was the exact message I needed from God. I began casting this thing to Jesus. I labeled it and threw it. My stomach began to unknot. I had peace. Praise Jesus! And later on God handled it!

    Dawn says:

    Just like everyone else commenting on here, I can’t hear messages like that too much. Those type of messages are always right own time. Esp. for those of us that are burden bearers. Love the reminder to cast the care on the Lord for he cares! Thank God for that! Everytime I have done this in the past, I can testify it works and God intervenes. Everytime I have not done this, I am in torment, b/c fear and anxiety definitely causes torment–1 John 4:18. Thank you Beth and Thank you Jesus for this timely word… I need it playing over and over in my head and heart.

    Beautiful Beth, :*

    Oh, Oh, Oh, how I needed to hear and see the words of 1 John and Hebrews.
    Your devotion and scriptures spoke DIRECT to my soul!!!

    Thank you for listening to the call on your heart to reach the women in “SUCH A TIME AS THIS.”

    I love your dedication, determination, and desire to follow CHRIST JESUS the ONE & ONLY!!!

    With love & “Heaven Bound” blessings,

    Ramona says:

    Awesome message. It was just what I needed to hear, too.

    Several years ago, I felt like I was under such a heavy spiritual attack, so I asked the dude (my hubby and pastor), “What do I do? The only thing that pops into my head is the verse that says, ‘Resist the devil and he will flee from you.'” The dude was kind enough to first tell me what verse I was quoting (James 4:7, because I couldn’t remember), and then point out the sentence before that says, “Submit therefore to God.” We prayed together about it, and then I spent some more time alone submitting things to God in prayer. That afternoon was the beginning of my breakthrough. In the days that followed, I started realizing all the ways I was not submitting to God — all the areas in my life that I was trying to put myself in the driver’s seat. I’m sad to say that it had been going on a long time. I’m not even sure when I started doing it. But with God’s help, I did work through it.

    And with my current anxiety and turmoil, it smacked me upside the head yesterday that I was doing the same exact thing — worrying over the things I’ve been praying desperately about. Thank you, Beth, for such a timely, convicting, and life-changing message.

    Crystal says:

    Thank you so much for the devotional! It was a WORD from Jesus! I just finished up a Young Mom’s study on Humility and came home to watch the live stream. God used your message to confirm what we learned…pride and anxiety are tied together.

    Thanks you Beth for speaking the truth and encouraging me in my daily walk!

    Cara says:

    Enjoyed the opportunity to participate in the livestream. Loved what you spoke on and it certainly applies to me. However, I have loved the last two Kelly Minter bible studies and when you mentioned she would be having a Live Stream launch party I went looking for it. I found it on Facebook and OH.MY.WORD. If God can use the promo’s to confirm things I have been wrestling over for weeks, I can not not even fathom how he would use the study in my life. I’m hoping you’re considering it for the Summer Siesta Bible Study.

    Either way, yesterday God used your livestream to point me to where I needed to be listening.

    Dearest Beth, Thank You seems to small a word to express my deepest thanks over the seista celebration Word from God and now this devotional. Both times you spoke straight to my heart and God’s Word lifted me, convicted me and helped me so much. Praise God. Please keep doing these live streams they are so encouraging. And thank you for the link to be able to veiw it later. sincerely Phyllis.

    Hi Siestas!
    So love the Lord’s timing and sweetness toward us. During the livestream I was home with my feverish little three year old. I otherwise would have been at Beth’s James study with my sweet small group.

    How blessed was I to get a word right in my jammies? So dear of our Lord. My little girl toddled in and asked what I was doing. When I said I was learning about the Lord’s goodness she asked if I could kindly, “Turn Jesus down.” Apparently I had it up a little loud for the love’s liking and apparently she thinks Jesus is a beautiful blonde from south Texas.

    Love to all the siestas and our good mamma! Thanks for the truth, Beth. I needed the reminder to pitch it!

    sweet anonymous says:

    Thank you for an amazing and timely word! The day before I had seen and commented about the live stream as I was planning on doing nothing but sit on my couch and so look forward to what Jesus had to say through Beth. Unfortunately I was in my car white knuckled with anxiety through the roof having to attend to a situation that had to have immediate attention. Sometimes the enemy can throw us such a curve ball! But as Beth spoke God was not surprised and He caught it and made it all work out for good in a way that only He could. We really do matter to Him don’t we? As Beth was praying was probably the exact moment He was showing me ..Hey girl, you matter! Please forgive me I did not mean to be dishonest to comment and not be there! I’m so sorry! Blessings to all in Siestahood! With Love, Mary

    Leah Cooksey says:

    Mrs. Beth, that word was just what I needed to hear. I am casting my fears and anxiety and my pride on Him like it is a hot potato. I know that He alone is able to handle it and that He cares about me. If it matters to me, then it matters to Him.

    Stunned! Supernatural answer to my prayers! It was, indeed, a priceless gem. Thank you so much, Beth, for taking the time to share your Godly wisdom! Through you, the Lord has given me the practical application of His Word that I needed so badly. I didn’t know about the NET Bible, either. One is on it’s way to my house. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    Michelle says:

    I have listened to this devotion for two days. I kept playing it over and over thinking to myself I know there is something I am supposed to get Lord please help me get it. Today I started it again and it hit me like a ton of brick, my greatest anxiety/care is communication. Lack of communication. It has always driven me nuts when someone does not respond and uses their silence as a weapon, or at least that is what it feels like to me. I am passive aggressive and I will take and take and take all manner of speaking and treatment, then when I’ve had my fill I usually get out my bazooka and blast the offender. Which of course renders them silent. I hate this about myself always having to set it straight with my words. I think if I hear myself do that again I will throw up. I am asking the our Father to give me the strength to speak up instead of waiting till I am on over load and blow up. This devotion speaks volumes to me, as a matter of fact I am going to listen to it again. Thank you Beth I needed this more then I knew.

    Just now was able to watch the recording of the livestream message from Wednesday. OMGoodness. Just what I needed today. Kneel and Throw!!!! Dealing with trials of friends/family all around me…..feel overwhelmed in how to pray for them……I needed to hear this. Thank you Beth for following God’s leading. Yes….I heard the illustration of the jewelry and Keith…..I caught the treasure today!
