So, where have I been? As Beth Moore would say, I've been hanging out on my "Pottery Barn couch", using my "Williams-Sonoma cookware" and basically making myself comfortable in a pit. I had it decorated so nicely, I wasn't sure I wanted to leave. I have only recently seen it for the dark, slimy & miserable place that it is.
I'll be honest. I found this book, "Get out of that Pit" in Wal-Mart for 1/2 price back in January when I was on vacation. Being a Beth Moore fan & never one to pass up a deal, I bought the book even though I didn't think I needed it. I'm thankful the Holy Spirit knew how to get my attention (and can I tell you that I sent a couple of friends to that same store that week...but no other copies were marked down!).
I've been reading the book for a while now...taking my time to really soak it in. I have to say, it's hit me like a ton of bricks. I love how the Holy Spirit uses Beth to speak practical, Godly wisdom. I also admire how up-front she is about her own struggles (gives me hope!). I am grateful that she never minces words, and that she never minces The Word. Most of all, I appreciate that Beth never fails to start a dialogue between me and God. This go 'round, it's a much-needed and long overdue conversation.
I'm still reading "Make Up Your Mind". I believe I almost have. And I so want it to stick this time! So, maybe my blog will take on a new tone from now on. I'm not sure how much I'll be writing, since I'm pre-occupied with crawling out of a pit right now. But I know Who is on the other end of the rope pulling, and He's a lot stronger than I am. Praise His Name!
