Don't Let it Fool You

Last night I completed chapter 7 of So Long, Insecurity by Beth Moore. The chapter entitled "Don't Let it Fool You" contains the stories of women who have been fooled by insecurity.  I ran across another passage that really hit home with me that I wanted to share with you. 

"God Himself formed human emotions.  He knows how easily the heart can be broken.  The mind can be marred.  He knows life hurts ... because people hurt ... and then hurt people.  He also knows the resilience with which He made us and the innate capacity within each one of us to be restored.  Remade.  He knows we are capable of loving even when we feel unloved because He loves us enough to cover those who don't.  He knows we are not nearly as fragile as we think we are, but we will act like who we believe ourselves to be.  He knows we have the capacity to be astoundingly extraordinary, and not just in spite of where we've been, but because of it.

God knows we're insecure.  But we do not need to be.  And He will not leave well enough alone.  He has enough security for both of us, and for those of us who call Christ Savior, He slipped His own secure Spirit within our simple jars of clay.  It is in you to be secure, dear one.  Do you hear what I'm saying to you?  You have it in you."

On Saturday we had our first baby shower in our newly remodeled fellowship hall at the church. Also, there were 15 ladies who met last night to begin our new Beth Moore Bible Study "When Godly People Do Ungodly Things". I was thrilled to see our women taking leadership roles and the interaction that occurred between all of the women.   I am really looking forward to what God has in store for each of us during this study.
