“It’s a peculiar thing, this living long enough to take a good
look back. We go from knowing each other better than we know
ourselves, to barely sure if we know each other at all, to
precisely sure that we don’t. All my knotted-up life I’ve longed
for the sanity and simplicity of knowing who’s good and who’s
bad. I’ve wanted to know this about myself as much as anyone.
This was not theological. It was strictly relational. God could
do what he wanted with eternity. I was just trying to make it
here in the meantime. As benevolent as he has been in a myriad
of ways, God has remained aloof on this uncomplicated request.”
– Beth Moore
All My Knotted-Up Life is a beautifully crafted portrait of resilience and survival, a poignant reminder of God’s enduring faithfulness, and proof positive that if we ever truly took the time to hear people’s full stories . . . we’d all walk around slack-jawed.
