Review: Get Out Of That Pit by:Beth Moore

 Get Out of That Pit: Straight Talk about God's Deliverance
About the Book:
From her first breath of fresh air beyond the pit, it has never been enough for Beth Moore to be free.

This best-selling author and Bible teacher who has opened the riches of Scripture to millions longs for you to be free as well--to know the Love and Presence that are better than life and the power of God's Word that defies all darkness.

Beth's journey out of the pit has been heart-rending. But from this and the poetic expressions of Psalm 40 has come the reward: a new song for her soul, given by her Saviour and offered to you in Get Out of That Pit--friend to friend. This is Beth's most stirring message yet of the sheer hope, utter deliverance, and complete and glorious freedom of God:

I waited patiently for the Lord

He turned to me and heard my cry

He lifted me out of the slimy pit

He set my feet on a rock

He put a new song in my mouth

It is a story, a song--a salvation--that you can know too.

[New Cover for 10th Anniversary]


My Review:
 Get Out of That Pit is getting a facelift for its 10 year anniversary. The cover was redone but the content is the same. The same because it is timeless and appeals to a wider audience each and every time that it will go through a transition period. Its easy to get into a pit of gloom and despair especially when we are struggling and we fail to see that God is right by our side at each and every turn. We go through different phases of that depression and despair and we do all we can many times without realizing it that we are digging ourselves deeper and deeper into a hole.

 With Beth's life altering words we can reach for the Lord, the Lord that will reach down and remove us from the pit that we find ourselves in. He is fine with us being in a pit from time to time but he is not okay with us staying there. My family recently heard some tragic news to us involving my son. It is not a life or death situation but one that will be life altering for him. We cried and prayed and cried some more. Meanwhile, I have a very scared teenage son that wonders how is this going to effect his life as he gets older. When the questions rose from his precious heart we didn't know what to say except son, we aren't sure but we will figure it out together.

 God is sure and positive on the fact that we will question our life at every turn and He welcomes it. He just wants us to look through all the fog and dust and find Him in each situation, because if we look for Him, we will find Him there waiting. Beth's book is about not letting circumstance beat us down to the point of never moving again. We let God down as well as ourselves when we choose to let our life steamroll over us.

 Get Out of That Pit, is a navigation plan to get out of that pit and to do it God's way!
