Keep Up Those Siesta Prayers!

Sisters, I just thought I’d better shoot you a quick update. I told you earlier today (see previous post) that CJ was getting better but he’s back up to 103 degrees with an elevating white count. They’ve just put in a call to his doctor. Thank you so much for your concern. We are humbled that you’d join us on this journey and expend the extra energy for intercession. I’ll let you know something some time tomorrow.

And, since so many of you mentioned the simulcast, please know that I, too, am super excited about Saturday and counting on God to come through for us. Your anticipation fuels mine! I trust Him to settle my mind about the Joneses in time to have at least forty-eight hours of solitude leading up to the event. I got in a couple of hours of study today while AB was napping and Jackson was at Mother’s Day Out. If, for any reason, we’re still turned upside down around here, I also trust God to show His strength in our weakness. He’s preparing for Saturday even while I’m keeping these babies. Their Nana will be on her way Thursday and God willing (and I know that He is), I’ll see you then! It’s by no means up in the air.

You are precious to us.

 We’ll do a roll call on Friday to see which Siestas are attending and from which locations. I guess you know by now that I love roll calls! I dearly love to imagine you in all your walks of life and all your cities and towns around the country doing the same kind of thing on the same day in Jesus’ great Name. Most of all, I think He loves it. (Which reminds me, it’s almost time for Siesta Summer Bible Study III! Stay tuned for more information. Yes, I’ve already chosen a specific series. I’ll tell you which one in May.)

OK, both kids are in bed and the dishwasher’s going. I’m going to set my broken toe up for a while. Grin. I love you. (Btw, an adult son of one of our Siestas got word to me recently that his mother swears and declares that I really do love her. And she’s right.)

    I am so sorry I forgot to mention it, Beth, but I am praying just as much for you as you prepare your heart and mind for Saturday. And, Amanda, I am praying for you as you try to juggle things between hospital and home, sick husband and children. I have been where Curtis is and where you are, and both require a deal of help from the Lord.

    “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.”

    I am praying for your family. I so wish I could be at the simulcast on Saturday. I have a ministry commitment all weekend and can’t attend on Saturday. Is there any other way to view this???????????? I loved the book and am so grateful for your ministry. My ladies bible study just finished the Daniel study today. Gotta say, so sad to end this one, but I am so excited to continue my study of eschatology.
    All my bible study girls will see the simulcast but not me :(:( I will be thinking of all of you on Saturday!!

    Beth, We’re about the same age, and yet because of our later life adoptions,
    I chase a 5, 7, and 9 yr. old, daughters, from China… We also have 3 birth
    children, 2 married daughters (no grandchildren) and 1 teen boy. Doesn’t that make you tired just hearing all of that???
    Anyway, I’m praying for you, as you do some of what I do daily, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything!
    Lorisa in CO
    ps. I broke my pinky toe a month ago by stubbing it on my littlest daughters heel…
    (She didn’t even flinch!) But boy oh boy it took me to my knees and I had to do my lamaze breathing for a few minutes!! ouuuuuchhhh! I know!

    Amanda- Praying for you as you take care of your husband. I know its tough to be torn between your husband who needs you and your two little ones at home. You are right where you need to be. Praying that the antibiotics will work quickly and that he will begin to regain his strength.

    Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and stength a very present help in trouble therfore we will not fear.

    Shannon Bathurst says:

    Thank you for all you do Beth Moore. Your words have truly saved my sanity many times and kept my heart from breaking many times. I listen to your breaking free series over and over to keep your words what our Lord says about staying away from certain people and how getting burned by a friend is sometimes worse then having your house burn down. Thank you with all I have to give for your reminding us all that God is our judge and no one else, That God will get us through and never leave us or betray us. Thank you. I look forward to the simulcast on sat. If for some reason it has to be postponed due to all that is going on in your household, I know people will understand. I pray your toe heals quickly and your son inlaw is on the mend very quickly. God Bless you and God has blessed us by putting you on this planet to help those of us who need the little extra reminders that our emotions are not in control , our God is. Bless you.

    I am praying for you and all the family Beth! I’ll also have my family pray and I’m going to email the women from our church who are going to the simulcast to have them pray too. I can’t wait to “see” you on Saturday. I hope your heart will be at peace that day. Love & appreciate you Beth!

    God may Your healing power flow through CJ’s body from the top of his head to the soles of his feet. May Your word come forth and be medicine and life to his body. Lord, only you know what the Jones and Moore’s need right now…touch them and show Yourself to them in ways that only You can do. Thank you for being right by their side during this difficult time. Thank You for being everything to them. Once again, You will show Yourself to be faithful…You just can’t help Yourself! I love You and I’m so greatful for you coming into my life.

    Thinking about you and your family this week and praying for Curtis to get better soon. I’m certain that God will provide you with the amount of quiet time that you will need for Him to prepare you for Saturday. I’m looking forward to the message that God is planning to deliver through you….and for you to tell us how God has “just been showin’ off this week.”

    Dear Beth and Family,
    I haven’t had internet access for sometime and am just now checking out your blog. While you all have been have such a crisis in your family, ours has been going through one as well. You all will be in my prayers! I must believe God is getting ready for something big to have so much happening right now. I have a child whose marriage has just hit the fan, she is 12 weeks pregnant and devastated! Another one with severe Asthma problems, married but no insurance for her, and she can’t go to the Dr., then my health has taken another dive over the last few months and weeks. Oh, did I mention my 90yr old grandmother live with me also? I’m so thankful God knows all things and already has a plan. If He could just let me know pretty soon, it would sure help!

    I pray Curtis heals quickly! What would we do with out our MOMS!! Mine lives next door and is there for me when I need her. I will be at the Simulcast in my church and I’m praying that both my girls will be there with me. That will surely be a “GOD THING”!
    I love being able to share with you and make you part of my family though on earth we may never meet. May God grant you sleep, study/prep time/ and abundant blessings!!
    Much Love in Christ,
    Siesta Cory 🙂

    Been praying for Curtis – God woke me up at 1:48 AM last night to pray for him –
    (thank you Jesus that we can pray for our family!)
    Also praying for sweet Amanda and you mama Beth!

    My mom and I are heading to ATL on Friday for the SLI event.
    We are having a dinner Friday night with a few friends
    that are coming from all over the country even a few from Michigan.
    I am praying the humidity does not wreck their hair and throw
    them for a complete loop 🙂
    We want them focusing on loosing that insecurity not more
    insecure b/c of some crazy hair 😉

    Be safe and see you Saturday!
    Much love

    It probably helps to read from the most current post down…but I started with a few days ago… I will be on my knees for all of you! God certainly makes clear it is is Him! I pray Beth you get your 48 hours, but if God chooses that you don’t I Pray He carry you and lift you on His wings! We all love you so much that you could get up there and read directly from your new book and the Bible and just chat and we would love you even more, for.. leaning, leaning… 🙂 The Spirit will speak you know it and we know it, He has never failed to show up and He certainly won’t disappoint on Saturday! I can’t wait even more now, knowing what is going on behind it all, just makes it more exciting! 🙂 love you praying for you! and Worshiping a Mighty Loving God

    Yesterday my sister and I attended So Long Insecurity and I can’t tell you what a blessing it was to us both. To be honest i had wanted to go but never said anything to anyone (of course I was too insecure to attend alone). However my sister called with tickets and I KNEW we were supposed to go. I drove 30 miles to pick her up and return her and I have to say sitting there with her was a joy as we both soaked up God’s message to us through Beth. It was an AMAZING time-May God richly bless you!!

    How do I keep myself from blushing when feeling insecure? This happens when I’m talking to someone in person or even on the phone. I can feel the heat in my face, and others comment about how red my face gets. This just adds to the problem.

    I know you can’t answer individual questions on the blog, but I woke up wondering if we are going to have a summer study to do together this year! I hope so!!
