This is such a sweet blog entry, that I just had to share it.
When I was a brand new Christian, struggling through a painful first year of marriage, I took Beth Moore's class on the tabernacle.
In one of the videos she said something that I took like an arrow to the heart, and for many years I couldn't bear to take another of her studies. I just couldn't get past it, but I now understand that ANY teacher can say something without really thinking about the way it may come across to some...and I've learned that as a student, I need to be willing to extend grace.
I learned that because I so often need grace extended to me when I teach. ;)
I also learned that there really is a maturation curve for a new believer. I had a lot of growing up to do!
The truth is, Beth is so sold out for the Lord, and He has gifted her to speak right to the heart of women.
A few months ago my "spiritual Momma" as I love to call her, Janan, wrote to ask if I'd be willing to go to a Beth Moore conference with her, if she flew into town.
Now, I would go Death Valley with Janan...seriously, I'd go anywhere she invited me to, just to be with her. I love her so much! So, of course I told her I'd go. :)
Well, let me tell you, God ministered to my heart in such a mighty way through Beth's teaching that day. I think I expected a sermonette, but what I got was inductive teaching! ( Which you know by now is my heart!) It was a wonderful day!
So now I make a point of reading her blog. She is a gifted writer, and I love her heart.
When you click on the link below, go to the entry that she posted on December 30th.
I hope it touches your heart like it did mine.
Happy New Year!
