The Promise of Security (Booklet)
Beth Moore (@BethMooreLPM)
Available from Christianbook.com in paperback, ePub, Audio CD, and MP3 editions.
I read the Kindle version.
We’re all desperate for significance. We live our lives screaming, “Somebody notice me!” And do you want to hear something interesting? That’s exactly how God made us. That very need is built into our human hard drive to send us on a search for our Creator, who can assign us more significance than we can handle.
–Beth Moore, The Promise of Security (booklet), quote from “When you are searching for significance and value . . .”
I had never read anything by Beth Moore, but I hear people talk about her all the time so I finally picked up a booklet she wrote called The Promise of Security. It’s almost like a devotional with brief little readings (see sample below) and the readings are grouped into areas that typically make women feel insecure.
It was a quick, easy, and enjoyable read. It gave me a first glimpse into her humor and level of self-disclosure. She writes with compassion as one having “been there” but she presses the reader to move forward rather than stay there.
The Promise of Security was a nice little booklet, with a discussion of the security of salvation at the end, making it a nice gift for someone who might be seeking something bigger in life than their own insecurities. It would make a conversation starter, at least.
Here is a sample of one of her readings:
I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.
I hate to display such a firm grasp of the obvious, but how will we ever change if everything around us stays the same? Or what will ever cause us to move on to the next place He has for us if something doesn’t happen to change the way we feel about where we are? God is thoroughly committed to finishing the masterpiece He started in us. And that process means one major thing: change.
–Beth Moore, The Promise of Security (booklet), quote from “When life seems unpredictable and uncertain . . .”

I give Beth Moore’s The Promise of Security four cups of love.
Minus one for seeming a bit disconnected at times.
