    Wow. EVERY part of this spoke to me.Amazing how the Holy Spirit works. Why do I ever doubt The Lord? He is able. I praise Him for giving this message to Beth. This msg was for me.

    Through you, God met me right where I was today. I began meditating (again) today. After my meditation time, I played your video and couldn’t believe it’s timeliness! God sees me. Even in my little struggle to find time to listen to Him. It is hard to quiet my mind, but after listening to your podcast, I know it’s something I need to learn. I’m going to hang on to this gift and savor it. xoxo Michelle

    Thank you so much, this was such a blessing this morning just after I had my quiet time with the Lord this morning. So encouraged this morning!

    I’m grinning because the herd of Jesus following lambs that I run with has a large population of rough around the edges addicts holding onto Jesus for dear life. I’m about to post on our church Facebook page-FUMC Elevation- your video “Thinking about Thinking” cause it is absolutely True.

    I’m cracking up about my polished and lovely Beth Moore mentoring my roughed up buddies today. Two worlds meeting and it is a hoot.

    It is not a rule… it is a right to go to the Word and collect my morning Manna. Amen and Amen. Take that evil. I have a right to my King and get out of my head…this mind belongs to Kind, King Jesus. I and all of us have a right to hear from Him this morning and every morning!

    Thank you so much Beth for your prayer today. I was so surprised and elated today when I opened my computer and there you were. I have been struggling lately with thinking things over and over and pretty much just thinking all my problems “to death”. This was a real inspiration to me. I’ve been reading my Bible but not really taking in what I have been reading. You gave me some good verses to go by. Thanks again for all you do.

    This is such encouragement to me! Thank you for being “Jesus in skin” as I learn what a relationship with Him was meant to be.

    No better way to start the day than with encouragement from the word of God and prayer from my sister Beth!

    Joni says:

    Could not have been more timely for me. An answer to desperate prayer. Thank you, Jesus! Thank you, Beth, for tuning your spiritual ears to hear and for the time you took to share this with us. It’s so easy to forget that our meeting with God in the mornings is a privilege and that He will speak if we’ll turn our minds and hearts on full attention-mode! What better thoughts to meditate on than His Word and His will regarding our situations?

    Dori Cook says:

    Thanks, sweet Sister, for the challenge to just start thinking about what we are thinking about again. It is so easy with all of the distractions to look right or left instead of straight ahead, and get back to nose to the page Bible study, letting God speak. You are right — it is our privilege as a Child of God. I needed this today.

      Michele says:

      P.S. NO PRESSURE or anything…but are we going to do a Siesta Summer Bible Study?

      • Lindsee says:

        Hey Michele! The answer is yes, we are. We will have details out soon! Just keep checking the blog. Have a great Tuesday!

        • Michele says:

          thanks, Lindsee! SO EXCITED!!!!! :0)

          • Mary, Nova Scotia says:

            Dear Michele, thank you for asking the question about summer bible study. Lately I’ve been drifting away, feeling a little lost. A new bible study is just what my spirit needs. Can’t wait!

    Thank you so much for this word. The word which God has spoken over me is “The LORD is the One who will go before you. He will be with you. He will not leave you or forsake you. Do not be afraid or discouraged” Deuteronomy 31:8 Praying for the start of this years LPM conferences. May God protect you and your team, and that many women will come to KNOW HIM. I was at Daytona, came away just flooded with the spirit. Thank you for being His servant. Love to you and your family.

    mmmmmmm……”the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.” That verse fell in a very fresh and renewing way today! ‘Twas a verse that spoke such healing into my spirit years back. Thank you for the very timely word. I confess I’ve been meditating on a hurt way too much. This is the reason I love you, dearest Beth, your words so often speak clearly and powerfully to me in my season. God has used you mightily in my life. Praying for you and yours.

    Thank you, my Teacher, for bringing this to my attention this morning. I just finished the last lesson of your Daniel study, and that last lesson always leaves me “hanging”, wanting more. And there!!! Hallelujah!!

    Love you!

    Judy Cole says:

    Thank you so much for this word. I had been feeling this same message in my spirit for several days. I have been distracted from the word for the past few weeks since the sudden death of my sweet mother. I’ve felt every emotion which led to exhaustion and numbness. Getting back to the word is exactly what I need to do. Thank you!

    I love how God is using your teaching gift to help me grow in my walk, Beth. I pray His blessings over you and your family. Have a beautiful day!!! Love you!!

    Laura says:

    Miss Beth, thank you SO much for listening to our God and sharing what He places on your heart. This meant so much to me and is absolutely what I needed to hear today. From reading all these comments, it sounds like other people feel that way, too! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Dearest Siesta Beth,
    (and darling Lindsee Lou, too!)

    What a wonderful surprise to find a video message from you that fit right with my devotion time today. Just this morning I added Ps. 19:14 to my little spiral notecards left over from Siesta SMT 2013.

    I just love it when the Lord confirms scripture to me. Taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ is something that takes intention, and something I’m working on. The goal is purifying my heart, so that the times of being surprised (and maybe dismayed) at what pops out of my mouth are fewer and fewer! 🙂

    Love ya both!!

    Helen D - MN says:

    Thank you Beth! A word fitly spoken indeed! It is the very thought I’ve been thinking about the past 6 weeks and into the next 6 weeks in studying Discerning the Voice of God! Listening to hear Him speak to my heart about an old situation. Love the scriptures you brought forth! Looking forward to hearing your heart in Minneapolis this weekend!9

    Paula says:

    Perfect compliment to what I am enjoying of the Lord in this season. Sermon series at church has brought up recurrent phrase “Words matter.” Began reading “When God is Silent” by Barbara Brown Taylor and loving the opening comments on words in our language, how many more we have and how much less they mean than they once did. All the more reason to fervently pray, “Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord.” Terrific reminder to be aware of what I think, as it may soon fall right out of my mouth.

    Diana A. says:

    What a Blessing!
    An answer to prayer. I had this grumble come up from within, and I thought what the heck is that? Then it happened more frequent, and I think I don’t really think that… what is that?
    Today, GOD provided me TRUTH! Somewhere in my heart, I must hold onto a grumble! I must meditate of sorts with that grumble.
    Heading to my knees, repenting and Watching out for what comes out of this mouth!
    Thank You Christ Jesus for using Beth to send me a WORD!

    Robin says:

    Even though this isn’t a “spiral” year of Bible memorization with ya’ll, I have found it so nourishing that I continue it every year. Then my dog ate not only my first, but my second spiral of verses I was collecting. So I thought I’d just let it go this year. I couldn’t stand it! I got some index cards and just this morning received my 7th verse of the year to meditate on and memorize, Matthew 5:15 – it truly does matter what we fix our thoughts on. Thanks for the reminder!

    Siesta Susan says:

    Did I ever need to hear this message today!! I have been nursing a hurt for a couple of days now. I won’t go into detail but after your lesson on Thinking about Thinking, I have decided not to obsess over this any longer. My focus is now is on the promises of God. I’ve got a few scripture verses that I am going to recite every time my mind wanders back to this hurt. Thanks Beth, for reminding me of who I am and more important- Whose I am!!

    Thank you for loving the Lord like you do! It’s absolutely contagious. God used you to speak into my life today. He only knows. Love you!

    Lisa Braun says:

    Thanks for your very timely word sister! I love mornings that I spend in the Word and starting my day off right. Being involved in the Siesta Scripture memory last year inspired and encouraged me. I’ve continued on with the Scripture memory this year and started a group of women with it on FB and we’ve grown to nearly 100! So cool!! This is a great message to share with them! I thank God for you sister!

    Joyce Watson says:

    Thank you so much for your words of encouragement…so much needed. I spiral down on “rejection” and replay the tape over and over sometimes.
    My thoughts are on Isaiah 43:2-3 today.
    When you pass through the water, I will
    be with you;
    And through the river, they shall not
    overflow you.
    When you walk through the fire, you
    shall not be burned,
    Nor shall the flame scorch you.

    For I am the Lord your God,
    The Holy One of Israel, your Savior… Isaiah 43:1-3

    When we feel the fire of trials and the rushing of the waters, it is often hard to recognize God’s divine purpose. Jesus did not want to experience the pain of the cross, but He believed and trusted in the goodness and faithfulness of His Father. He knew God would work all for good according to His purposes. We too can trust God for His purposes.

    Thank-you is not enough to say. Loved hearing this from you and God. My meditations have been anything but good. This was exactly what I needed and God Himself had started turning around. So glad to be getting confirmation on this from you. This was very needful.Blessings to you, Beth!! <3

    Wonderful Word! Thanks so much for the encouragement. (My right… It’s my right. Lovely!). Praying for the team as you prep for Minnesota.

    Anne says:

    Wow! Did I need that reminder! My mind has not been meditating on the Word but on the wrongs and stresses in my life! Once again Ms. Beth I praise The Lord for you and the calling he places in all our lives! He is AWESOME!!!

    This word was powerful! It goes along with what we’ve been studying this Lenten season with She Reads Truth. I just wrote on my blog on 4/4/14 about thinking about what we are thinking about. I love when God gives confirmation to me. Thanks for sharing the Scriptures! Love you!

    I am SO grateful for you, Beth, and your ministry! I have been struggling for months with a situation that caused me to finally make the decision to leave my job of 25 years. Your message is exactly what I needed to hear and I thank you for sharing it!

    valerie rumfelt says:

    I like all your videos. Thanks for taking time to do them. Hooray for the daily, morning, quiet time. Not legalistic, but out of Love for HIM. Besides, I’m always wanting to hear what HE is going to say to me! I hate that so many Christians deny themselves this right.

  46. 96

    I love this! Our meditations in Jesus as the WORD become our soul’s medication. 🙂 As one who is caught THINKING, RETHINKING and OVER THINKING… This really resonates. A lot for me to chew on – such a “meaty” revelation and exhortation. Thank you for sharing this. 🙂

    Ashley U. says:

    Thanks for the sweet words and encouragement to get in His word to let it speak life over us. He’s singing over us, delighting in us – if we’d just let that sink to the marrow of our bones! Love you so – thanks for your faithfulness. And, I’m thanking God for technology, too, that lets me watch this while I’m having contractions and my second little girl is on her way! 🙂 Bless you.

    Melissa says:

    Thank you! A blessing and an encouragement and a confirmation for what God is doing in my life. I was in a car accident last week- I’m fine, praise God. He did spare me physical injury; My car was damaged beyond reasonable repair. In the past I would have panicked over the financial implications but I really sensed God impressing on my heart, “who and what will you focus on- focus on Me and My word.” There have been a few tears but there has been no hysterics and NO fear. This was an encouraging word for me- to keep on meditating. Thank you. Yes, you all are in my prayers.

    Melanie says:

    Thanks, Beth for this…I’m sure this was for others too but I’m claiming it for me. I’m not just out of the habit but have become so distant from Him. I guess it’s due to disappointments and stress. I’m in my 40’s in grad school working on my masters in special education. I’m so exhausted mentally, physically, and spiritually….I just don’t have the energy to move back to where I need to be. I don’t like asking for myself but will you guys at LPM please pray for me….

    • 100.1
      Lindsee says:

      Yes, Melanie! Asking the Lord to give you rest in Him. That He would give you supernatural energy and focus to complete the task He’s placed before you. You are not alone! We ALL go through seasons when we feel so distant from the Lord, but know that He has not left you for a minute. Peace to you, dear one.
