I love Beth Moore. I have led at least a half dozen of her studies, and recommend them for keeping your spiritual intensity at fever-pitch!
Oddly enough, I often think of her saying, “God has me on a keychain,” partly because I don’t really understand it.
I think she meant that her life put so many demands on her, and she found it so intense, that she could never stray far from God, far from being on God’s keychain.
Beth Moore, for you English people who have no idea whom I am talking about, is a tall, slim, beautiful, blonde Texan, and the leading women’s Bible teacher in the US. She is sincere, passionate, and has an amazing gift for bringing the Bible to life, for relating it to life, for making the spiritual life EXCITING!! Amazingly, this vibrant, passionate, fully alive woman was sexually abused over a long period in her childhood—and was put together by God.
Her ministry has been scandal-free–no sexual scandal, no financial scandal, no heresy scandal, no accounts of bullying, manipulation or spiritual abuse–scandals which have beset other American male and female preachers.
I think this is partly because Moore has taken extraordinary steps to keep her mind and emotions pure and focused on Christ. She says she plays worship music when she drives long hours with her employees to speak around the country–to safeguard against idle chatter and gossip. She has worship music in her house through the day, again to focus her thoughts. “Do you always live in God’s presence like this?” she was asked. Her answer, “I don’t dare not to.”
I would recommend her studies of David, Kings, Moses, John and Paul. Some may permanently change your life. All will give you much spiritual joy and pleasure while you are doing them.
