One might say, "I literally repel technology." So show and tell today might not be news to you but I just discovered Google Books, where you can search and preview all kinds of books. (What did we do before Google??)
I found it by searching for a good way to tell you about my new favorite book, Get Out of That Pit by Beth Moore. Everyone should read this book. Click here to see a Google Books preview of it; in the bottom left corner you can choose the chapters you want to read.
Ladies and gentlemen I do believe I've been pit dwelling. And I'm honest enough to say I jumped in with both feet. But. Today I'm movin' on up. Because even though I decorated the pit... it's a pit. And this child of God was not made for living in a hole.
I am grateful for the roadmap out of the pit. I confess, I feel like Dorothy when Glinda said, "...she wouldn't have believed me. She had to learn it for herself." I've been hunting around the dirt floor of my pit for a flashlight. I've been (theoretically) moving my Bible around the whole time because I was busy searching for my flashlight. Yeah, let that sink in... and raise your hand if you can join the club.
I believe. Every day of the last 6 months I've believed. But faith without works is dead. (James 2:20) So what good does it do to believe God will rescue me, if I don't choose to quit standing in the mud? Beth says, it's God's job to lift me out, it's my job to hold on to Him for dear life. I'll take that road all the way out of the hole.
It's Movin' Day,
