Beth Moore Live!

It was everything I hoped it would be and more...or should I say Moore! I have spent the last few years being taught by this extraordinary woman on the big screen at my church. Laughing at her unique sense of humor, being stretched by her challenges, and brought to tears by the piercing truth taught from God's Word.

I was tired when I arrived at the conference in Stockton, it had been a busy week for me and I felt emotionally spent, but what I lacked physically and emotionally God compensated for spiritually. The praise and worship led by Travis Cottrell was amazing and energizing. We sang until I know God heard us and answered back with His presence.

Beth spoke on the bride of Christ. Well, the name was actually, "Bridezilla to Bride." You can imagine from the name what might have been said. A lot was covered, mostly from the book of Revelations chapter 19. As we began to read the chapter together we came across a verse that was very familiar to me. It was familiar in that it had been floating around in my head for the past week and a half and actually came out my mouth a time or two. This is what we read, "I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True..." (Rev. 19:11) It wasn't the whole verse that I had been thinking of but just these words, "His name is Faithful and True." (speaking of Jesus)

When God brings sections of His Word across my mind or path repeatedly, I have learned to pay attention. He is weaving a theme into my days and my thoughts. I'm not sure why these particular words are so important to me at this particular time but I embrace them. What a wonderful thing to know, that He is Faithful and True. Do you need Him to be Faithful and True in your life today? I know I do.

Whatever comes into my day, or whatever darts are shot at me, I know there is One who sits on a white horse, whose name is Faithful and True, and He is Lord over everything in my life. Beth Moore is a gifted and anointed teacher and I thank God for women like her. I learned a lot this weekend about the return of Christ for His church, the wedding supper of the Lamb, and being a prepared bride; the beautiful threads that tied it all together for me are those words He weaved into my heart - His name is Faithful and True!

"Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear." (Rev. 19: 6-8)

Then the angel said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!'" And he added, "These are the true words of God." (Rev. 19:9)


  1. Charolotte, what a beautiful blog you have here. I am so happy you are beginning to put your poems out there for others to be as blessed as I've been. I am putting you on my sidebar this month for my "Blessed blogs of the month". I pray it brings people over here to see the heart I have seen in your writing.

    Blessings friend.
