I just found this book, study, and devotional. I have just started chapter 1.
So here and now I declare I am a child of the Living Most High God and I am no longer insecure.
I will not spend any more money to try and quell and quench the feelings of insecurity.

FREEDOM! It’s the best word I have to describe my feelings after reading this book. It’s like Beth was inside my own head and found the thoughts and exact words to express my innermost insecurities. I joined a “So Long, Insecurity” bible study at a church down the street I had never attended because I felt the title alone drew me in like a magnet. I had heard of Beth Moore, but had never read one of her books let alone joined one of her bible studies. I have no doubt God placed me right in the midst of all these women I’d never met to battle the biggest demon in my life. Chronic Insecurity. It will be a daily battle, but God used Beth to help me win the war. The war that has made me sick to my stomach almost every day of my life with the constant worry of what others think of me, my choices, my husband, my kids……constant worry. Thank you from the bottom of my weak, but stronger every day, heart. God loves me and instills freedom when we truly seek His approval only. Thank you.

When people describe me – the words used are “confident, energetic, outgoing, strong, a leader” and the true descriptions of “insecure, neurotic, suicidal” would not cross their minds, unless they were male and had been in a pseudo or real relationship with me. I had perfected my mask to the world with a big job, church responsibilities, teaching, and all-round leadership. Deep inside, I have been hurting and just aching – hating myself – for years. This book has helped me identify both the roots I knew existed and roots I didn’t know that contributed to the neurotic insecurity within. Praying and praying and praying again the prayers from chapter 9 and then reciting the scriptures from Psalms, Proverbs and 2 Corinthians have begun to change my heart – and my behavior. I recite them out loud – and when I am in public – in my head! Because my mask was so secure to the outside world – I never realized how much my sons saw the true me – and how afraid they were for me and how it impacted their relationships. I thank God for giving you the desire to change and the tools to manage – and then sharing with the rest of us. This book reflecting reality and then giving the solution of God’s words and his love have changed me from the inside out! I have had to face many fears realized while studying – and God has given me the STRENGTH and DIGNITY to deal with them – without shame – and he has given me the GRACE to get back up. Isaiah 50:7 has been another tool for me to set my face as flint and know I will not be shamed, because the LORD helps me. Thank you Beth Moore and all who help you for helping me work through the roots of insecurity and giving me the tools to move forward to a SECURE future with a secure and steadfast heart holding this all-surpassing treasure. God has used you to change my life – and as a leader – I will be able to use these tools for others.
THANK YOU……. your Sanguine Sister in Christ…Kelly

I am insecure about trusting a man to really love me for me. I purposely created relationships with men that were wrong because I did not believe I deserved better. This is the reason I am not married. I found a library just walking through the city and was thumbing through books and I found this book by Beth Moore. I checked it out and, WOW!!! I believe God drew me to the book because I really needed it. Thank you God! Thank you Beth I am starting the journey to security…

I am 27 years old and I am so grateful that God has bought me here to this site. I’ve been insecure for so long that I can’t remember when it even began in me. I always wanted help but felt like it was impossible and there was no way out. Insecurity only left me hurt and angry inside myself. I was just sick and tired of crying and asking God “why” and what is the use of me being here when I look opposite to what the world wants or expects of me to be. Tonight was different for me. For the first time I really cried my heart out to Jesus. I’ve always been insecure about the way I look, my body shape, everything about me. I feelings of confusion and a mistake often haunted me in my mind. All I kept asking God was ” why doesn’t He just kill me to end it all so I don’t have to wake up to this or myself”. Everyday I pretended like it was all ok but inside I was just completely torn. I couldn’t go shopping, see magazines, posters, adds, movies even other women without feeling low about myself. Seeing pictures of these perfect women with no marks or blemishes and perfect bodies made me hate myself and mostly blame God for creating me. Thoughts of not being good enough, pretty enough, enough of this or that, the feelings of rejection with all the hurt in me really had it’s toll that I didn’t care if I died in my sleep cause I had enough of this world. My main insecurity was Fear. The fear of failing and missing out. It caused jealousy and envy in me then turns to self Blame and other destructive thoughts about Jesus and about me. I just wanted to be free. Free to live without comparing myself or hating God. When I hated myself it mean’t I was hating what God thought of and created. I’m sick of crying and hurting myself because of Fear. I just want to be healed in my soul. Right now I just want to surrender my insecurity to God and be able to trust Him and have faith in Him. I just want His Love to be true to me and believe that He will heal me. God can you free my mind and my heart so that my thoughts, my vision and the images in my mind can be free to see things the way you see them according to your will. So right now I just surrender my body, mind, will and emotions to you for freedom instead. Thank you.

you will not push isolation onto us.
you will not flood fear of our pasts into us.
you will not plant mistrust and misunderstanding into us.
you will not take ownership in our hearts or minds.
you will not place anger, rage, bitterness, or resentment in us.
you will not be allowed to turn our knowledge of each other into disrespect.
you will not manipulate our words nor our behaviors.
you will not navigate our thoughts nor our desires.
you will not steal our joy or our peace.
you will not divide us nor capture our friendship.
you will not take a foothold in us.
you will leave us. you will flee. you will dismember yourself from us.
Because the great and mighty Father and our Lord Jesus Christ will do incomparably more than we could ever ask or imagine in us.

This is a wonderful book; sometimes I felt like I was reading about ME! I’m almost 57 and I’ve lived with my insecurities for a long time. I always felt I wasn’t good enough at my job, wasn’t a good enough mother, a good enough wife, a good enough daughter – whatever! More than anything I want to shake off my insecurities so I can be a better example to my daughter and my granddaughter. Right now, after reading this book, I feel that YES, I can do this. I know it will be a struggle at times but I also know that when I ask for help, I will receive. Somehow along the way, I forgot that. I was raised a Christian and have kept my faith but haven’t walked it for quite some time. I’m finally realizing you just can go it alone without God. So I’m putting my trust in Him. Thank you Beth for making me realize a lot about myself and showing me that I’m not alone. We ladies really do need to support each other.

So long Insecurities! I am so done with you!!
I not only was able to recognize my own insecurities, but the marks of insecurity of those who intimidated me! By knowing how others insecurities make them behave, it is helpful to me to know that we are all in the same boat and instead of being intimidated or hurt by their actions, I can recognize that they are hurting and have compassion instead of fear.
