So Long, Insecurity
by Beth Moore
Insecurity. The very word itself makes one insecure. No one really wants to admit it, but everyone experiences insecurity at some point of his/her life. Written primarily for women (though men could probably benefit, especially in understanding the women in their lives), So Long, Insecurity touches on a subject that is not often discussed. Beth Moore tends to do that.
I read this book last year, during a time in my life that I needed it most. God reached through the pages of this book and touched my heart, changed me. With each page I turned, each chapter that went by, it seemed that Beth was speaking directly to me. There were times when I wanted to hide, and times I wanted to rejoice. Shortly after finishing the book I attended Beth's conference by the same title at church. It too was amazing, but I found myself wishing that more of the book could have been covered in the conference.
I think what affected me most about the book was the way Beth admitted to her own insecurities. It made her seem down to earth, as if I could sit down and chat with her, and she would understand what I was going through.
I would recommend this book to anyone who isn't afraid of baring all before a God who sees all. I don't think anyone can read this book and walk away unchanged. I certainly didn't. I grew a closer walk with God, and as I look back a year after reading this book, I see all that God did in my life as a result of listening to Him. Beth Moore's book was merely an instrument - but one that deeply changed me.
