So Long, Insecurity by Beth Moore (Review)

Perhaps one of the biggest issues all women face is their own insecurity. Beth Moore, one of today’s most admired and trusted Christian writers, wants women to be free from the insecurity trap. So Long, Insecurity will strike a chord with women everywhere, as Beth speaks truth into the lives of readers, showing them how to deal with their innermost fears, rediscover their God-given dignity, and develop a whole new perspective—a stronger sense of self. Women of all ages and backgrounds will resonate with this message of security and discover truths that will free them emotionally and spiritually and lead them to a better life as they walk with God.

MY REVIEW

None of us are immune to feelings of insecurity. It could be something in our past that still haunts us, or something we are dealing with right now, or maybe something that worries us about our future. In this book, Beth Moore covers many different examples from real people who were willing to talk about the things that have made them feel insecure.

I have read several other books written by Beth Moore, but this one really hit home for me. I could see myself in several of the examples, and some of them really made me laugh. We are such a curious species, and this book helps us to focus on what is really important. We can have confidence and security because of the gift of grace given to us by our Heavenly Father. We are his children, and we need to remember that!

My absolute favourite part of the book? Right smack in the middle of the book there is an awesome prayer that is ... almost ten pages long! The reader is encouraged to find a quiet spot, a place to be undisturbed for at least half an hour. The prayer is to be read out loud, and there are blank lines to add your own thoughts. What a powerful prayer and one that I will go back to again and again.

I cannot say enough about this book, except to encourage everyone to read it. Please get yourself a copy, and then you can also say, "So Long, Insecurity!"
