As Promised – The Great Forsake and Take

My beloved Sisters,

Thanks is too small a word for the privilege to serve you. You are graces of a merciful God to me. How I pray God revealed Himself to you in an intensely personal way today. Here is the equipping that I promised in the simulcast to those who are ferociously ready to forsake fear and take courage. You will find a cover sheet for your notebook, a letter from me suggesting how to use the resource, and enough verses to keep you well immersed for a good while. They are life and liberty to any of you who, like me, have battled a stronghold of fear but they are also vastly useful when you are facing a temporarily intimidating or frightening situation, like surgery or a speech in front of your class or a hard conversation requiring you to speak the truth in love. It doesnโ€™t matter what circumstances are tempting you to fear and to shrink back from your faith and your calling, you are invited and even commanded by God to take much courage. It is your right of daughtership, โ€œfor you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons [and daughters!], by whom we cry, โ€˜Abba! Father!โ€™โ€ (Romans 8:15)

By all means, you are welcome to openly share this link with anyone else who could use this kind of equipping, whether or not they joined us for the simulcast.

The Great Forsake and Take

Stay in the Word, Sisters! You are chosen and loved by the sovereign King of all creation and the calling on your life demands power and insight that only He can bring. Trust Him. He cannot do you wrong.

Christ is life,
Beth

    Beth, Thank you. Thank you for allowing God to use you in such an incredible way. I didn’t know how much I needed to be there until I sat in the presences of the glory of God!
    Thank you for your prayers and your continuing faithfulness to our mighty God!
    I would also love to have a copy of the commissioning prayer we prayed over our sisters.
    Thank you so much!

    Dear Beth, Our ladies Thurs AM Bible Studies, small church in Key Largo, Fl, ALL ages, have been together about 10 years. Most studies have been yours. This summer we did No Other gods. We are a group of seasoned Bible study-ers and many of us were knocked off our feet by Kelly’s study. We didn’t expect to experience where the Holy Spirit was about to take us, deep within. We just finished NOGS last week with challenges to trust God. God had such a blessing of His great love for us waiting around the corner. We decided we’d once again do Believing God starting this week. Imagine now, how the simulcast not only confirmed that, but sealed and sent us forward, feeling the most personal embrace from Our Lord and Savior! The work He began in me 5 years ago re: fear, rejection, insecurity, lead me to a huge revelation a couple of weeks ago. I felt His love greater than I ever have during the simulcast. I have a new identity! Thank you for your love of God and His Word and for inviting us to share Him with you! We are on our new journey of Forsake and Take!

    Beth, it has been a prayer of mine to get to see you live. God allowed my husband to bless me for my birthday with tickets to see you in Reading, PA. Along with me, my dear, dear friend, Liz. The Lord was at work, girl! He was, is and will continue to be my focal point in life. I praise Him for the words you spoke and for the work He is doing in my life and the lives of all of His children.

    I am a new Substance Abuse Counselor and I am also a Job Coach. I serve the upstate New York area and just do what the Lord has been putting on my heart to do, to tell of His good works and faithfulness. Through the teaching in Reading, PA, I have been encouraged and my spirit is renewed. I praise God for that!

    Thank you for the ministry you do, He uses y’all mightily!

    Love In Christ,
    ~ Patricia Moore

    Beth, I attended a simulcast site this weekend and I want to tell you that I had a break through and a break off. I can’t tell you what a joy I have in my heart now after 2 years of spiritual stagnation and decay because I have allowed the enemy to steal from me. Thank you, and to everyone who supported you, for the message you gave and for being vulnerable with us. Many, many, blessings to you and your staff!

    Thank you so much Beth for you and all your team! What a blessing it was and such an encouragement to me. I have been in a dessert for so long and felt the stirrings of new life once again. Praise God!
    Love you!

    Thank you for your ministry and this homework…I am in earnest and I do plan to work through these scriptures. My heart was very moved on Saturday and I am very grateful. May the Lord continue to work in and through you and grant you much joy and peace!

    I was so blessed attending the simulcast. It was no mistake that I was there. I have been gripped by fear now for years. Any chance you would be able to provide a transcript of both the prayer and commission they were so powerful.
    Many blessings to you sister!

    Mary says:

    Beth, you have such a gift from our Father! Every time I hear you speak I feel encouraged to go deeper in the Word and get closer to God. Saturday, Sept 15th, 2012 simulcast was exactly that. I realized that some of my actions were coming out of fear and a need for me to control. I am working on giving this control back to Christ where it should be. Thank you for reminding me that our heavenly Father is big enough and loving enough to handle anything that comes my way.
    Thank you so much! I am praying for your ministry as well – that you will be heard through the Holy Spirit. God bless you richly Beth!

    THanks so much Beth for your simulcast this last Saturday. YOU have allowed God to use you and my heart and life will never be the same. I haven’t stopped crying since Saturday afternoon because of how the Holy Spirit has been speaking to me. The prayer that you prayed at the end of the seminar was powerful…do you, by any chance, have a copy of that? I would love to get one. Thank you again for the message that you brought to us.

    Lori Leggett says:

    The simulcast was awesome! Thank you Beth for the prayer you prayed for “Me”. GOD certainly showed off great big on Saturday. And on Sunday morning within my devotion, HE continued to show his greatness and reminded me not to fear as my scripture for the day was Hebrews 10:35 – So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.

    May God continue to richly bless Living Proof Ministry!

    Gail says:

    I had the priviledge of attending the Living Proof event on Saturday in Reading. I serve in ministry and have felt the fierce opposition of Satan worse than ever recently. One big target has been my 9 year old son, Jacob. He truely has God’s gifting in music – he plays the violin, piano, and kazoo ๐Ÿ™‚ by ear and he is always writing songs that show an unbridled love for God. Maybe a future worship leader? He has been battling with fear and anxiety recently to the point of losing weight and having gripping stomach pains. After many medical tests the diagnosis came to anxiety. I shared with him from Ps. 44 when I got home Saturday(esp. Ps. 44:4 – I believe written just for my Jacob :0). I printed the great forsake and take guide as well which I am reading to him and pray over him each night. I believe God will bring victory to Jacob over this stronghold. Thank you Beth for being willing to be so yielded to God and willing to serve Him and bring such rich Scriptural studies to us!

    Beth and Ministering partners.
    Thanks you so much for Saturday’s Simulcast broadcast. I am from Fredericton, NB a small city in eastern Canada and it felt awesome to be part of a larger work. I have done many of your studies, seen numerous videos, but feel this was your strongest, sincerest, most “from God”, for me. that is saying a lot, as God took me through Breaking Free and Believing God to lead our Ladies Retreat 4 years ago and believeme, that had a powerful impact. Saturday however, opened my eyes to how I have allowed FEAR to Rob me of God blessing others through me and Blessing me. Thank you all, for being willing to step out in FAITH to grow up Faith in others, and esp. in me. I will be forever grateful.

    Hi Beth,
    What an amazing conference! I came expectant, but unsure of what I needed. I just knew God was going to reveal some areas that He wanted to deliver me. I blubbered through most of it as the Lord lovingly exposed the lies I have believed. I still am teary today. I saw so much of myself in each of the women you spoke of. I’m not sure what letter I am because I have very little and the desperation of woman A, but have the attitude of woman Z trying to convince myself that all is “fine.” I’m fearful of not having and I’m fearful of asking. Because of fear I have wanted to live an earthly explainable life because I thought that would be easier. The Holy Spirit within me will not let me settle because He is able and willing. I just have to believe. As I looked back in my journal to Sept. 14th I re-read it and to my surprise it was all about fear. Fear has crippled me for most of my life, and while I sit here and type knowing that there is a lot of ground to recover, I am thankful. I am thankful for you. Thank you for making me laugh through tears and delivering the word of the Lord so that so many will be set free. You are loved ๐Ÿ™‚ Diane

    OK Beth seriously, this is the first time for individuals to be able to join a LPM lesson? AND you only do these simulcasts annually….even though you have 150,000+ attendees? I think someone should seriously rethink this venue. Reaching 150,000+ would be incentive and motivation enough to see this happen MUCH more often than annuallly. I attended with an individual “ticket” and it was everything that has been expressed on this post…and MUCH more. Perhaps it is time to take JESUS to the far reaches of the earth and perhaps simulcasts are an answer to this endeavour.

    The word was presented and the word was good. The worship was fantastic….Travis was awesome in his “solo”. Lifeway did a remarkable job bringing this lesson series to the masses. I would assume there is more hard work in this type of lesson series, but seriously 150,000+ women studying the word of God and experiencing Christ personally and in groups…words escape me. Yes, those numbers are impressive just for the mere fact all those women were in scripture and studying the word even at the same time….globally. Just gives me chills thinking about it.

    Yes, bring it on and let’s see more of these simulcasts in the future….PLEASE!!

    I have purchased the videos of your lessons in the past, so it was incredibly challenging to watch you without rewinding on Saturday. I realized how much I appreciated the videos with rewind capability. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Awestruck. Speechless. My spirit is face down on the floor before the Lord. What the Lord is doing in and around me….I can hardly BARE it, if that makes sense? This simulcast took it all deeper. I am in such unchartered territory with the Lord. I am completely lost in Him and couldn’t find my way out with a compass, but I want to go deeper STILL~!! Thank you for being such a woman of the Word and for allowing the Father to bring it alive through you. The Rhema is blowing my noodle, praise God! LOL! One request? PLEASE make that prayer that you prayed over us available to listen to again? I received it in my core. I bless you and all that you hold near and dear! Crystal =)

    Beth,
    Thank you for praying for me on Saturday. Sharon Pumpelly of True Love Waits International gave ma a card while I was on a bus leaving Ridgecrest last Thursday and it took an hour and a half working with LifeWay Support to get the simulcast going in order for me to experience what God had for me. After 40 years of first-hand experiences as a Southern Baptist missionary in Zambia, I don’t want to have secondhand ones in retirement. We are the Texas coordinators for a Baptist Global Response “Bucket Project” to send 10,000 Hospice Kits (for the terminally ill) to Africa by the end of 2013 (http://www.baptistglobalresponse.com/projects/view/hospice_kits). I need a full jar of oil. Could you send me a copy of the prayer (Petition) and the Commission? I have started the Fear and Courage scriptures. The Bucket Project is a God-sized assignment that will take lots of prayer. Thank you for allowing God to speak through you last Saturday. I know you love southern Africa.

    I was present at the Reading PA conference with Beth Moore. Thank you God for providing Beth with the tools to help us women come closer to God and each other. What a wonderful day. I expected a great conference from Beth but received much more than I expected. The music was great and Beth, your delivery of Gods word and the way you present it are blessings to us all.
    Good bye fear and hello freedom!!

    Thank you Beth, Living Proof, and most importantly God for an amazing Sat – I was there in person, and it was life changing – thank you for giving the way you did, you can tell you put your “all” into it, and I thank God for you! I also would love to have that commissiong prayer if it’s available. Thanks again. I’ll never be the same again.

    Dear Beth, Like the other 450, I too would love a copy of the prayer you prayed over me.
    I missed some of it, because I was so busy wiping the tears and trying to keep the snot
    (it is what it is) off my notes! Please, please tell Keith, Amanda, Curtis, Jackson, Annabeth, Melissa (can’t forget Star) Thank You for sharing you with all of us. I know how precious you are to me so, I ask you to let them know, I do pray a prayer of thanks for them.
    Also, your other family! Those amazing LPM folks! Josh in the “tech” place, all the people I saw with the “backstage pass” that do all the amazing things they do so we get to see and hear you teach us about Jesus Christ. Do you think LPM might put the simulcast on a DVD? Although I think I got #4, I was so engrossed in the story, I think I missed it!
    Well done for fighting off your fear! Thank you for the scripture.
    And Dear Heavenly Father, Thank You for blessing us with Your Daughter Beth.

    Hi Beth LP team,
    Thank you so much for Saturday! I was fortunate to be able to travel (4 hrs.) to attend the event live! And what an event it was!!!! I have attended your conferences for years…….but believe this was the best one yet. Is it true we get better with age?? Your teaching is amazing……and God’s word truly comes alive through you. As my sister-in-law and I were approaching home – we were laughing……saying Beth is probably home in her jammies……and we’re just pulling in!! The day was so worth the ride! Bless you and your team!

    Becky Grady says:

    Dear Beth,

    The simulcast was amazing. Thank you so much for making me realize that God doesnt want us to be satisfied with being “fine”. You have stirred us to realize that we must put our “faith” back in our faithfullness. Thank you for reminding me that God expects more of me than just being comfortable in my ordinary life and wants me to live a supernatural extra oridinary life and spread the word to others. Thanks for reminding me through scripture that God expects me to be one of the many many women who spread the word and good news of Jesus.

    Thank you for allowing yourself to be a vessel to be filled and used by our Lord in such a mighty amazing way. Your sincere heart felt compassion for others and love for Jesus Christ is a blessing to many. Your blessed gift of teaching like none other I have ever known is an amazing blessing to many. Great will be your reward in heaven dear Sister. God Bless you for all that you do in laboring for the kingdom. I cant wait to be blessed by your conference live next year in Charleston West Virgina. I already have a lot of co workers wanting to go with us. God Bless you.

    In His love,
    Becky Grady

    Beth….my dear Siesta Mama,

    What a day the Lord made on 9.15.12! Oh yes He did.
    I was in Reading , expecting a mighty
    Word from God and He was there. Oh yes He was.
    Thank you for living boldly, transparent and faithful to
    our God.
    The Holy Spirit called me to walk down and receive
    some prayer and to exercise my belief that I am Not
    the same “fearfilled girl” who committed my life to Him
    when I was a teenager. I have been changed…all to His
    glory.
    I feel revitalized….and will march on in victory with
    these verses.
    I will say what you said to me…
    Thank you.

    Sheila says:

    Thank You LPM for the hard work and I am so glad I didn’t give it a second thot when I was invited to attend the event! I have come through a very difficult summer with family & marital issues – the likes of which I’d never seen in my 22+ year marriage – and it nearly pushed me over the edge. I could identify with the woman who kindly responded to those trying to meet her needs but knew her answer would only come from the Man of God. I have been under the counsel of some well-intended people during this difficult time, but the only real comfort, confirmation, encouragement, rebuke, guidance, etc. came from crying my heart out with my Jesus & the Word! No matter who I tell what, they don’t know my whole story, and can’t possibly speak to my being like He can…I am so humbled and grateful for his love, grace & mercy towards me, and for never leaving me to feel abandoned or alone in any circumstance!
    I attended the event with a dear sister-friend of mine and we prayed the closing prayer over each other through my tears, but I too would like to review the prayer in print if you could provide, as I struggle to recall all that was prayed in my soggy moments ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you Beth for a great day of praise and worship and fellowship, but most of all, thank you for feeding us wih the Word of God. We were so blessed by the message and I know I am Expecting a Miracle in my life.

    I am not called to fine, but I am called to faith!

    I work in a residential treatment center for teens in West Virginia. Because of our wonderful Spiritual Life Program, Christian staff here are free to share the Gospel and minister as the Holy Spirit directs. I am so blessed to be able to work where I do! I have printed the “Great Forsake and Take,” made copies, and placed them all over our agency. In the lunchroom, in the bathrooms, in the conference rooms, in mailboxes. We encounter much fear and pain and sorrow each day as we minister to the children in our care. I know a lot of folks here, myself included, who wage war against fear at work and in their personal lives. Many many suffer in silence. Thank you, Beth, so much for making this compilation available to us! It is a wonderful, cosmic-sized blessing that will help so many people!

    Saturday’s Simulcast teaching blew me away ! I wish I could count the things I have heard in the last 48 hrs that has soooo lined themselves up w/that teaching. My husband & I are on the outside looking in, watching & fearing a very painful destruction of a family marriage. No it is not us (we have already been to that dark place) but it might as well be bc they are closely related. My heart is breaking for this family of 3. The teaching,tools,encouragement & the pouring out of THE HOLY SPIRIT I received on Sat. were as best as I can describe it, “like local honey poured out on a HOT cathead biscuit” ! I do have a question though, I would truly like to get some type of audio material of that day, mainly of Beth’s prayer at the end. It had OUR SWEET JESUS all over it. As I knelt in the floor of a small country church in Alabama as she prayed, I felt as if I had opened my eyes at any point of that prayer I could have seen JESUS standing right behind her ! It is giving me the biggest goose bumps right now just thinking about the power of THE HOLY SPIRIT ! Trying to express to you Beth ,your family,your team & many others that I’m sure I’m not aware of, how grateful I am for all you do, is like trying to count the stars in the sky,impossible ! THANK YOU !!!!
    Sweetly,
    Flo Smyth

    Tanya Hoffman says:

    Beth,
    I was at the Simulcast this weekend and was in section 101. This section gave me the view of the side/back of your head when you were sitting in the crowd during worship time. Your hair looked great by the way!
    I got to witness this sweet moment between you and God. You had your hands up and were praising and all of the sudden you stopped and just looked around. I could almost hear you saying to God in your heart, “I am not worthy to do this Lord, but thank you for allowing me to be used. Please let it be Your words they hear and not mine.” I could just see the reverence and awe you were feeling in that moment.
    I was so blessed to see that, but I almost felt like I was intruding on your moment with God!
    Don’t worry, I didn’t settle for just watching your moment, I had some of my own! God completely overwhelmed me. There are no other words to describe it.
    Thank you Beth! oh and also Annabeth looks so much like you! AND I am stealing your idea for Bibby’s Secret Closet when I have grandchildren.

    Thank you, for opening yourself up to the Lord in order to bring me hope and peace. The prayer that you prayed for me and over me felt as though (in your words) you bore a hole straight through my chest…straight into my heart. Would it be possible to get a copy of that??? I will be able to write down Sept. 15th, 2012 as a day that I was transformed by the renewing of my mind. What a glorious day to praise Jesus!

  35. 685

    Watched the simulcast at a local church, but their feed kept failing and did not work well at all. Finally after lunch we got it rewound somehow and got to see the first session only. I heard from the Lord what I needed to hear, but hate we didn’t get the whole experience, or the rest of the word from the the weekend…but God will fill in the gaps in our hearts. If there is any way to get a copy, we would love it!

    Thank you for much for your love of Christ and doing your simulcasts. I just attended my 3rd one and WOW. THis year – Sept 15 was the one I needed. They have all been awesome and I enjoy listening to you. God has given you a talent and blessed you. Saturday I was unsure if my marriage was going to stay together. 30 years and talking divorce and I go to your Simulcast and I feel God speaking to me through you. THe prayer you prayed at the end I felt was straight to me. I need someone new in my body. I need God to change me. You have showed me hope. I felt so much better when I left there and now I have printed out your blog and I am going to do this for me. I am so starting your Breaking Free Bible Study tonight at church with other women and I know I have things to break free from. Thank you again for loving Christ and loving us in the way that you do. May GOd pour His blessings on you and your family (grandbabies included – I have 3) everyday. Thanks again, Sarah Abney Killeen, Texas

    Wow, What a super incredible day! I was sooo blessed by your conference in Reading, Pa. and ready to move forward by God’s grace. Thank you sister for your mininstry. God Bless you in every way.
    A funny part in my mind was when you said a woman told you that you are hard to listen too. Maybe in a conficting sence, but I LOVE your twang and I love all the mannerisms that are you. You are so easy to listen to because you are soo beautiful inside and out and everytime I watch one of your tapes I recieve a huge blessing, sometimes to change and grow and sometimes to praise! Love You Sister. I’m so grateful that God has allowed our hearts to come together.

    Hey girl, I was viewing the simulcast in Gainesville, Texas on Sat. I live in Lubbock and was on the local Prayer and Publicity team that worked prior to your visit to Lubbock last year. Yeah, I was the one who did all the food and drinks for the Green Room and all the gifts we left in your room at the Overton Hotel. Anyway, I have already downloaded my copy of The Great Forsake and Take, but I would so love it if you could also post a copy of that most powerful prayer that we prayed over each other at the end. I am so doing a “Mimi’s Secret Closet” for my grandkids. They call me Mimi and a have stuff stashed for them all the time, but I just love how you make such a big deal of it with your little angels. Aren’t they the most precious ones. Blessing on you and your sweet team. Loved getting to spend the day with you.

    Dear Beth,
    As I started my “homework” (which I SO thank you for)I have to say that God’s handiwork in my life is so intricate. I have been in a small group with 8 other women for sometime, studying the Scriptures, learning together how to become Women of God who exemplify His love and grace, mercy and forgiveness. We recently finished True Woman 101 Biblical Womanhood by Nancy Leigh DeMoss (And may I say WOW… God has designed with in each and everything He created a sign to point to Christ – even in me, a woman, my man’s wife). Now as we begin another study, Brokenness, also by Nancy. I see that I have never been truly broken before God. I have pride in my heart for all my efforts. I, coming to know Christ at an early age and being brought up in a somewhat legalistic yet Christian home, have a “disability” in that I can not truly understand what it is I am saved from. Yes I know I am saved from eternal separation from God, by Christ’s death on the cross in my place…. from my sinful state. However, I have only always known this as my normal: Go to church, sing in the choir and solos, help with children’s ministries, teach a Sunday School class, tithe, help the needy, sick and poor, read my Bible and pray… you know all those “things” we Christians do. But I realize those are wasted efforts in a breath of eternity. My “service” has not been a sweet smelling aroma of sacrifice to God. It has been an self-applauding stench instead. My 35 years as a Christian have been like girl Z. I thought all was just fine. I was being kind to my enemies (externally), praying for those who persecute me (with malice in my heart), reading my Bible only to find later in the day I had forgotten if I had done so not to mention WHAT I read… What God said to me. Check lists of things to do have left me exhausted wondering if there is more.
    We are currently studying the James study, Mercy Triumphs, in Sunday School class at church and the topic recently was on (James 1:2) our sufferings (mine=mental stress of performance)and counting them JOY?!!??!
    Then within a few days my small group began the study on Brokenness by Nancy Leigh DeMoss and I am seeing my pride hung out like dirty laundry on a clothesline (Jeremiah 5:23).
    On top of that I began reading a chapter a night before bed from Max Lucado’s book It’s Not About Me. He talked about how God is not measured or confined by time as we know time (John 8:58). How our life and afflictions here are outweighed by the glory God has for us in eternity (II Corinthians 4:17). Smack! Right in the face again… WHAT AM I DOING????? I am just going through the motions. I am just checking off my list. I am just existing… not living. There is more. God has more. I want more. I want my life to be so filled with HIM that I can no longer see me. God has something for me yet even I don’t know what it is to ask for. But I want it.
    Thank you Beth (among others Nancy, Max and my small group leader, Kisti) for your willingness to be a vessel God uses to pour out on me. Praise God for His sovereign plan.
    So today my “Forsake to Take” is Forsake: Pride to Take: Humble Heart. And O that God would cultivate in me the heart of a servant who is deeply indebted to her master for all He has done for her. May my post not be for my own satisfaction but for someone else out there who is like me struggling to find IT.

    I appreciated so much your simulcast message. Our son died last year 8 months after being diagnosed with stage IV melanoma. We did everything we knew to do — we followed the formulas and the procedures in Scripture, and he still died. We have wrestled with this challenge to our faith. Did we do something wrong that prevented God from healing him? After hearing your message, I think not.

    I am so thankful for you and your ministry. I attended the Simulcast at a host church in Florida. I have been searching for how I can be more, what was missing in my christian walk. I don’t want to be mediocre. I want to be filled to over flowing with the Holy Spirit. Surrender all and have a heart like Jesus. I was girl A, but now I’m closer to girl Z, just because I’ve settle for no disappointment. As you said God didn’t call us to fine, He called us to FAITH!!! Thank you so much for your teaching and encouragement!! I appreciate your honesty & sincerity.

    *** IS THERE ANY WAY I CAN GET A COPY OF THE PRAYER, YOU PRAYED FOR ME?

    Blessed, blessed blessed in Appleton WI. Many women have requested a copy of the prayer prayed for us at the simulcast. Not as a formula but a reminder of what He is doing in us! Thank you for pouring out and filling us up.

    Saturday’s simulcast was a God ordained appointment for me. Last year I received a letter from someone I love more than my own life that almost destroyed me. Since then I have been living in defeat and fear of failure and been virtually paralyzed as far as having any confidence in being able to serve the Lord. The Lord spoke through you to water and fertilize seed He had already planted in me just recently through the study in James. The handout of scriptures you made available for us to print out is SO MUCH APPRECIATED. It was like getting a surprise gift from Bibby’s secret closet!
    I would love to have a copy of the prayer you prayed over us so I can continue to pray it for myself (AND for YOU) as well as a copy of the words of encouragement we said to our sister/partner at the end of session 3. Thank you, Beth, for your humble submission to God’s will for you in serving Him and all of us. Please tell your family and all who prayed for us in advance and during the day on Saturday that the Lord did indeed work, especially in my life. Please tell them THANK YOU and God Bless all the team that makes the ministry possible.

    Thanks so much for these words. I feel I was born in a stronghold of fear and am weary of the internal conflict between emotion and truth. Sometimes I grow weary of being courageous, despite my abiding confidence in the God that loves me.

    Well my printer went down over the weekend so I am at the library printing off the assignment. I am looking forward to working on it in the weeks ahead. I enjoyed the telecast on the 15th so much and has given me a lot to think about.
