After much debate, I have decided to participate in a new Bible study at church called, "So Long Insecurity Group Experience" by Beth Moore. I am doing the group experience, which means that each week I will read a certain number of chapters in So Long Insecurity. Then, I will work through the Group Experience workbook and attend Bible study. At Bible study we will review our answers from the workbook and talk about what we are learning.
I missed the first week, but yesterday I decided to join in on week two. I was so glad that my friend Elise decided to do this Bible study with me, because it is nice to have someone you know with you at Bible study.
I have had the joy of participating in two other Beth Moore Bible studies. The first study I ever did was Esther: It's Tough Being a Woman and the second was called A Heart Like His: Seeking the Heart of God Through a Study of David . Beth is an incredible woman of God who always has such rich biblical truths to share. She is also real and easy for me to relate to.
I am insecure and I think that God is going to teach me a lot about myself through this study. I have only read the first three chapters, but I can already see that this is an area in my life that I really need to work on. If you struggle with insecurity, like the majority of us do, please get this book and read along with me!
Here is a quote from the book that I really liked this week.
"Insecurity refers to a profound sense of self-doubt--a deep feeling of uncertainty about our basic worth and our place in the world. Insecurity is associated with chronic self-consciousness, along with a chronic lack of confidence in ourselves and anxiety about our relationships. The insecure man or woman lives in constant fear of rejection and a deep uncertainty about whether his or her own feelings and desires are legitimate."
