beth moore

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I had the opportunity to attend the Living Proof event over the weekend. It was my first time seeing Beth Moore live at a church and it was oh-so-much-better at the smaller venue.

It sold out quickly with 4,300 in attendance... thankfully, mom and I snatched up tickets immediately!

Crazy I tell you, but very much worth it!

What ended up being so cool the first night was running into a row of teachers (along with their mothers and daughters) from our kids' elementary school. (It's not the first time God has used the kids' teachers to make a mark on me, click HERE for one of my favorite stories.) I pray in advance for the classrooms and teachers our kids will have from year to year - I can't even put into words how cool it was seeing two of their former teachers there, worshipping alongside them at a Beth Moore conference of all things.


Our message this weekend centered around Psalm 116:1-7:

I love the LORD, for he heard my voice;
he heard my cry for mercy.
Because he turned his ear to me,
I will call on him as long as I live.
The cords of death entangled me,
the anguish of the grave came over me;
I was overcome by distress and sorrow.
Then I called on the name of the LORD:
“LORD, save me!”
The LORD is gracious and righteous;
our God is full of compassion.
The LORD protects the unwary;
when I was brought low, he saved me.
Return to your rest, my soul,
for the LORD has been good to you.

And it was incredible. I'm making extra time this week to meditate on it. Looking at areas that need "untangling" (there were a couple that immediately came to mind). Here are a few more images from the weekend:

While we're on the subject, Hosanna! is accepting early-bird registrations for bible study next fall - we'll be starting with Jonah by Priscilla Shirer and then moving into a brand new study by Beth Moore (James - taping is taking place now... that's how new). Click HERE for a limited-time reduced registration fee.

Hope to see you there!

Oh, Tina, I can feel the energy and delight of the teaching just by looking at your pictures! I am so happy that you and your mom had the opportunity to attend....and for sharing the scripture with the rest of us.
