What a Week!

My Dear, Dear Siestas,
I am in the airplane on my way home from breathtaking New England with a whirlwind-week wrapped up in the Name of Jesus. He alone knows how much your prayers carried us. Never do I ever take intercession lightly. It takes time, concentration, and labor. I am humbly mindful that the requests we throw out to you here are added to a monumentally long list of your own. THANK YOU.

You’re already up to date on the first three days of our tour but I gave you my word I’d keep you up on the whole week. Praise His merciful, faithful Name, God was unsparing in His Presence among us in both Delaware and Connecticut. The arena on the campus where we met in Delaware was not only full to the brim with people but full of passion for the Lord Jesus. Their praise and worship rocked the whole house. I loved them to pieces and God granted us an altar time that night that I will never forget as long as I live. Our last night was in beautiful Hartford, Connecticut and I was deeply moved that God had us end this ten-year season of Living Proof Live in a church. That’s where we started these events, stayed for a long time, and where we will no-doubt (joyfully and obediently, I pray) return. Make no mistake. Every time we meet in an arena or civic center, we gather as His CHURCH and He graces it as such but it was wonderful to be back in a lovely sanctuary where God is praised week in and week out. We didn’t have to follow up something like ACDC if you get my drift. We also had a powerful altar time there last night and I can only imagine how God esteemed the many tears that stained the carpet.

After we concluded (late!) last night, LifeWay threw all us team members a surprise party. We had so much fun. Travis and I received three gifts that we will each treasure the rest of our sanguine lives. We were given framed maps of the United States will flag-pins in all 50 states identifying the city and the year we had the chance to serve there. I’ve got to preface the next gift we received with a story. Trav and I were saying at the party how much we wished we had a photo journey of the events in an album. We called over our dear Rich, our photographer extraordinaire, and asked him if he’d put together such a thing for us (as only he could do, creative as he is). We told him we didn’t even want a brother-in-law deal. We’d pay him full price for his labor. He promised he would. And fifteen minutes later he was called forward to do his part at our gathering and with tears in his eyes, he pulled two gorgeous, professionally crafted hard-back books out for us. The cover was a picture of one of the largest LPL events we’ve ever been charged by God to do. It was at Philips Arena (with CeCe!) in Atlanta, Georgia and the sight of that place filled to the brim is almost unbearable. The title beneath it is, “Living Proof Live: A Photographic History.” And, yes, by our very own LPL historian, Rich Kalonick. It is SLAYING. And, oh, Lord have mercy, the hair styles. And, if you don’t mind me saying (he will), not just mine. Trav’s hair has been through some seasons, too. But he is consistently the cutest thing for the whole ten years! I, on the other hand, have decided, big as it is, my hair looks better longer and blonder than shorter and darker. So deal with it. And, really, I should have gotten a nose job along the way. I used to want one but by the time I had the money to pay for it, I didn’t care anymore. As I look at the pictures, perhaps I should have cared more. (TEASING, GIRLS!) But that’s all beside the point. The point is, it captures a journey of God’s faithfulness amid frail but seeking people. I love every single page of it but my favorite parts of all are shots of the participants in varying states of praise and study, laughter and tears. Man, I am so blessed to be able to minister to women!! You just really get into it. AND, my other favorites are the group pictures of our entire team: tech guys, sound guys, light guys, graphics guys, event girls, Trav and the praise team, and, okay, yours truly. (When they’ve taken a picture without me, I always love to say, “I love it! But there’s something missing. I can’t quite put my finger on it.”) You cannot imagine the diversity of people and personality God has teamed-up at these events and we have grown into family. I am so thankful for them.

Our third gift was a blast-of-a-video compiled by our dear friend (and team member) Stephen Proctor. He’d compiled all sorts of greetings from team members and participants and a few special guests. Many of the shots were hilarious. I nearly died when it came to the part he shot of the team at an airport. He’d taken them into the nursing room (it was empty, praise You, Lord) to video them so it would be quieter. You can imagine most of them were too flustered with the environment to concentrate on their greetings. The video is complete with bloopers and you’d best run to the ladies’ room before you watch them. Other parts of the video made me do what I HATE to do in public: the ugly cry. Man, I hate that. Nobody looks cute doing that. The three gifts were the absolute best-possible ways to document and celebrate a decade of ministry. As LifeWay Vice President John Kramp so aptly put it, we don’t know where God will take us in the years to come – nor how! – but today we hold up a stone of Ebenezer and proclaim, “Thus far the Lord has helped us.” He alone did it. He alone gets the glory. He alone decides where it goes from here. Not one of us would dare share one single success with Him. I’d be a wreck without Him.

I want to tell you one last thing I’m taking home with me from New England. My biggest loss – and it’s a BIG ONE – on the road is that I often don’t get to know any of the women personally. For this season of time, my one-on-one mentoring is done with serious concentration and calling toward my own daughters. They are the dearest ministry I have. Most of what I’m called to do otherwise this season is in a group setting. I’m so thankful for it and I can read a number of things from faces but I always wish I’d had the privilege of hearing their stories. One group of city coordinators sent me home this week with a very well-done photo album of their pictures, personal stories with Jesus, and their journeys over the last year as they worked toward their event. When I tell you I pored over it a little while ago on this plane ride and sobbed, I’m not exaggerating. It was as if we’d sat in a circle over a strong cup of fresh Starbucks and shared face-to-face. So many things struck me, some of which I’ve already written back in a letter to them, but one thing I feel compelled to share with you because I respect the same thing in so many of our bloggers. Many of them are living the Jesus-life faithfully OUTSIDE A SPOTLIGHT where they’d more often be affirmed and in the places where it counts more than anything. Where, as my people would say, the rubber meets the road. Right there in their communities, their school systems, amid hectic schedules of carpool and what on earth to cook for supper. Serving their churches, many of which are very small. Some of which lack a little spark. Many of them don’t have a sprawling LifeWay Christian Store near the neighborhood mall nor do they have a Christian concert every other weekend like we have in the Bible Belt.

One NE sister wrote me and said their beautiful city only has one Christian radio station and it’s mostly talk radio. Many of you could say the same thing. Numbers of you live in apathetic communities that just don’t give a rat’s tail about church or Christianity. Others live in very intellectual communities that look down on Christians like they’re ignorant and gullible. And yet there you are. Doing the thing. And doing it faithfully. Getting down on your knees at some point every day. Reading the Scriptures. Asking God to help you know Him. Living it out in your homes (is there any harder charge?) and in your work place and communities and finding yourselves wounded and wondering from time-to-time if God knows you’re alive. There is no such thing as serving in obscurity when you belong to Jesus. He is attentive to your labor. He is attentive to your CRY. IT MATTERS.

Sweet Thing, there is no one on Earth God notices more than you. He knows that the atmosphere He’s entrusted to you is not the easiest place on the planet to serve and, yet, day in and day out He sees you doing the thing. He knew you would. That’s why you’re there. He didn’t bother entrusting it to a light-weight. He knows you may go weeks between true soul-encouragements. Thank goodness we have the example of the man after God’s own heart, who, in 1 Samuel 30:6, was surrounded by bitter people who couldn’t see past their own problems to regard how he’d tried to help them. There, we’re told that David encouraged himself in the Lord. Yep, you can do that. When not one single soul bothers to encourage you, you can just go right to the Lord and encourage yourself. How ‘bout that? Speak to your own insides and say, “Why so downcast, oh, my soul? Why so disturbed within me. Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God!” As alone as you may feel, every time you praise Him, some ten-thousand angels jump in the chorus with you and your song becomes a symphony.

Stay faithful, Darling One. STAY FAITHFUL! Every ounce of your effort and every drop of sacrifice are poured like anointing oil on the feet of Jesus.

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.” Psalm 32:8

    Thanks for the encouragement today. I really needed to see the words, STAY FAITHFUL.

    Sometimes during the tough times, it would seem so wonderful to pop a wheelie and burn rubber out of the wilderness. However, the journey we go through has a purpose and meaning; moreover, a higher calling than our human minds can fathom. We don’t always see it, but the Master does.

    His ways are not our ways. Which I have come to realize is a whole lot better than my silly schemes and plans.

    Thank you for this beautiful word, Beth. I feel like it was written just for me. I’ve been in my current ministry position for 5 years now (besides being a wife and a mom of 2 boys under 5) and am just feeling discouraged and zapped. So your encouragement helped greatly. May God bless you and your ministry more greatly than you could ever imagine.

    How I needed this! I have been removed from a community of women that I cherished and loved and feel very out there on my own. I have been wondering if God even remembers that I am here. My closest friend and a woman who hurt me deeply came to the NE conferences together and I got to go and bury my father-he died the same day they left.

    Thank you Beth for encouraging us when life gets to be so tough and lonely.

    Dear Beth,

    I have never commented before, although I am a faithful reader. This post tonight moved me to tears and made me decide I need to let you know how much I appreciate you. I have often thought I needed to let you know how much you have taught me over the last 10years. At my small Southern Baptist Church, we have been doing your studies since the first one came out. You have taught me so much over the years. I have been in church all my life, but was so shy and never wanted to speak up. Then I thought I was only capable of teaching small children in Sunday School. Even though I have never met you, you have taught me how to speak up and teach God’s word! You have been a mentor for me. I give Jesus all the glory for this! Through your studies and scripture, you and Jesus have spoken directly to me about specific situations in my life. Thank you for your teaching, your encouragement, and for your love in Christ for all of us!

    Spiritual Mom Beth, it is good to hear from you. God showed up BIG, He’s soo Good!:) What a surprise for you and Travis!…Aw, it was a good reason to have an ugly cry:) No, no nose jobs, God made you beautiful:)…God has been everything to you, Spiritual Mom Beth! He has taken a hold of your life, and used you mightily:) That’s such a blessing, I’m sure, to be that for your daughters- They are gifts from the Lord to you…God has definitely used you to encourage us. All the Siestas living outside the Bible Belt and in the Bible Belt and overseas. It’s definitely mutual if we have encouraged you:) I pray that all of us would live and consist in Him. That we would love Him more. Require Him to get through the day in one piece, with peace of mind too! YES, I want to be found faithful!! It has always amazed me how the God of the Universe knows each one of His own soo intimately, more than we know ourselves. He is interested in the details of each and every one of His children’s lives…He’s that BIG. Yes, that we would glorify Him! That is the goal. Bless the Lord!!! Praise Him!!! Bless your heart, Spiritual Mom Beth:)

    Dear Beth,

    In the last paragraphs of your message God spoke directly to me. Thank you so much. At times it is so lonely and discouraging, but not for long, because He lifts us up, makes us laugh and fills us with joy! I grew up in the church, in a Christian home and
    many days wonder if our present environment is what He wants for our children. Thank you for this message to stay faithful.

    p.s. love your hair and nose!

    Beth, thank you for the encouragement to press on…church planting in the South East has been the best and worst thing ever! Lonliness, rejection from those who feel threatened by you call to reach those “down the street” from another church…It gets hard to press on when youre not sure if your ministry counts for much. But He is not only Worthy, He is Worth it.

    Thanks for your life that has inspired me to be a Christ Follower…My His peace be yours in abundance today.

    Beth, I am going to keep this one anonymous. In the past year, three women in my extended family left their husbands. I have been walking with Jesus since I was a tiny girl and prayed since I was little that I would marry a man I respected and adored and that loved Jesus as passionately or more than I did. Somehow what I thought was a man that followed hard after God is not. For almost 15 years I have walked through this marriage heartbroken and lonely, doing my best to be on my knees and in the word daily for the sake of my heart, our marriage, and our children. But my heart is running dry. This weekend as I considered the most recent divorce in our family and the reasons why, I despaired over being “stuck” as a believer in a very similar situation. I will not leave, but my heart so often wants to. Then I read your blog and these words popped off the screen: STAY FAITHFUL! Amazing. A bit sad, I admit (no room for chucking it all), but wise and true. So thank you again for a timely word spoken. Thank you for your transparency and steadfastness. And thank you for sharing in your studies of your struggles in marriage, and that if it weren’t for your marriage and its difficulties, you wouldn’t be the woman you are today. I’ve needed every word. You are a treasure – reflecting unspeakable Light.

    Thanks for the encouragement, Beth. You’ll never know how much that was needed! Living in Southern California as a born-again believer in Jesus Christ is not an easy thing. Heck, it’s not easy anywhere anymore. I know the Word tells us that we will be persecuted, but seems like the level of opposition to truth has doubled in the last 6 months. My faith feels like it’s getting a huge pounding – and I’m not sure it’s holding up all that well.

    Congratulations on this wonderful milestone in your ministry with Jesus!

    Beth, I enjoyed Delaware. Drove a few women from the Monday night Women’s Heart, God’s Dwelling Place . ( We have met at my home for the last 4 years). This past year was our hardest test. My sister, Lynne, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last September. We trusted and believed God to heal. We saw miracles and God’s grace at work but He chose to take Lynne home last March while I was visiting my daughter in Rome. We needed each other because two weeks prior, Lynne’s youngest son of four Caleb, 20) was suddenly killed in a car crash. Our sweet , loving, and very close family was hit hard. We are sustained through the Lord alone. Some days are more difficult than others. Lynne loved the Lord from birth !! She was a faithful pastors wife, at the same church for 30 years, (that alone is a miracle!) , and loved her ministry to children. Our studies have helped prepare me and continue to encourage me during this sad time. Last night you talked about God’s covering and passing through the cleft of the rock. I think that is why He had me in Rome. My Monday night girls have grown and love you too! Oh, by the way, I think my oldeat son Carson , would be a perfect match for M. He is a mighty man of God and handsome too!!

    I don’t know who is going to read this but I would love for Beth Moore to get this. I’m in a Bible study which is doing Stepping Up. I can’t do it because almost every page Beth is talking about her wonderful family. Her daughter’s and grandson. It’s good that her daughter’s are loved and her grandson is loved. That is not the case for eveyone. I have 3 boys who I wish had a grandmother like her. I know life is not fair but I’m finding it so hard to get through this Bible Study.

    Beth (I feel so strange calling you that, as if we know each other… though I feel connected to you regardless!), I was one of the Siestas at the New England Nights in Connecticut. I found out about your coming, back in August when I was out of state in the hospital with my then 7 month old boy who was going through a bone marrow transplant for his leukemia. We believe in faith that he has been healed, but it has been a long road. I asked the Lord for SOMETHING and at that time, I found out you were coming here, to Connecticut! I knew that was God’s gift to me right at that moment…. anyway, I could go on and on, but I just wanted you to know that I have been a long time follower of your books (in fact, your book “Believing God” reinforced my faith many times during the past 6 months as our lives have been turned upside down with our son’s diagnosis – thank you so much for writing that… for me!) and I greatly loved hearing you speak for the first time. I’m praying that the Lord would even still continue to reveal to me all that your message meant for my life… His purpose for my life. NOW is the time… thank you for that.

Reconciliation happened that was ABSOLUTELY a miracle… Beth taught on reconciliation and it was God who breathed on us…I am utterly amazed at how God used such precise timing, where our group sat, and God’s faithful servant, Beth, to produce reconciliation that I never thought I would see this side of eternity!! Jesus cares, for all who are going through difficult relationships/situations even within the Body. All our group kept repeating through the tears was “God is sooo good…He is soo good.” Thank you, Beth, for being obedient to the Spirit…I can’t wait to share with you in heaven all the amazing details of that night!!

    I just wanted to comment on this:
    “Others live in very intellectual communities that look down on Christians like they’re ignorant and gullible.”
    That is me!
    Beth, I attended your Sunday School class for a few years in college before my husband and I moved to Boston for him to work on a Harvard PhD. Let me just tell you, IT IS A DIFFERENT WORLD. I worked at Harvard for two years and was so surprised at how Christians and Christianity is looked up on almost with pity (and disdain), as if we simply don’t get it/haven’t been enlightened. Thankfully, we attend an amazing church, full of amazing Christians, many of whom are bona fide intellectuals, themselves, and have shown me how to live a godly life in this culture. They simply walk the walk in their workplaces like I had not seen before I left home.
    You are right–the anonymity of where the rubber hits the road can seem like a lonely place, yet the Lord is with us. Thank you for that encouragement.

I am a worship pastor’s wife, have a baby under a year old, and have to work a job requiring over 40 hours a week. My husband has to work an extra job too to pay bills. Sometimes I just want to cry. I have a hard time even getting the baby and me to church on Wed night, which doesn’t sit well with the senior pastor and results in talks with my husband instead of help for me.

I feel like so many of my dear friends have been hit over the past few months with so much extra pain and difficulty in life. Sometimes it feel likes we are just limping along, and not even part of the last pack of “racers”. But, God sees our efforts. He sees each little decision we make to try to do the right and honoring thing- no matter how exhausted, anxious, fearful or grumpy we may be at that moment. I pray that we all can continue to live faithfully, “outside of the spotlight”- God has work for each of us to do, no matter where we are.

    It has taken me DAYS to have time to read this post. (Everyone has been sick at my house this week — little one was diagnosed with pneumonia today). And yet — TODAY was the day I really needed to read this post. God truly has a time for EVERYTHING!

    Thank you so much for the encouragement. I am moved to tears at how much my Father loves me. He made sure I read this on the day I needed it most. It has been a hard week, but He has seen me through it.

    Thank you again, Mama Beth! Your ministry makes a difference!

    I am very ignorant on all this blogging stuff, but I have always wanted to let Beth know how much I have appreciated her work for God. Participating in her study The Patriarchs has reaped from my husband, who is an artist, a painting of Joseph. I just wanted to let you see some fruit. This has been a few years ago however.

    Hi Beth,
    I had the honor of attending your DE event and you may even remember my question to you (I actually got to ask you the first question!) It was: Why was the “Deeper Still” event cancelled in Rutherford, NJ (right next to NYC…. You came there 3 years ago and I was there by the grace of God), We need more of you and Christian speakers in the Northeast! A group of us already had it marked on our calendars for April, 2009, and then when we went to book it, we were told it had been cancelled. PLEASE PLEASE come back to the Northeast! We need you!
    Maria Teresa
