January 15th

Good Morning,

I was a little late getting on my blog this morning because I had to wait until I got to work to do so. BUT, I'm so excited to see everyone with their new scriptures. That is so fantastic!!!!

I'm curious about how your first verse went, did you get it memorized, did you look at beth moore's tutorial on memorizing and did that help. Do you have a great way that you memorize? I'd love to hear comments about this.

I got my first verse done and the one below it. There are 4 verses in a row that I wanted to memorize and God just allowed me to get the first two already. Psalm 18:16-17.
16 He reached down from on high and took hold of me;
He drew me out of deep waters.
17 He rescued me from my powerful enemy,
from my foes, who were too strong for me.


My next verse(s) is Psalm 18:18-19.
18 They confronted me in the day of my disaster,
but the Lord was my support.
19 He brought me out into a spacious place;
He rescued me because He delighted in me.

As you can probably tell by my scripture, my life has been in turmoil this last year. I'm just trusting God to fix me and my circumstances and in the mean time to trust Him to draw me out of deep waters and rescue me because He does delight in me. Isn't that just amazing, He delights in each one of us, individually and personally. I love that and depend upon Him doing so.

So, you go girls...on to the next verse(s). Just remember to keep saying and praying the first one because by the end of the year we want to be able to have all 24 verses in our hearts, minds and souls and be able to say them easily.
In Him!
ps- i don't know if you know about this or not but there is a web site that you can go to and have the bible right there to look up scripture. Someone sent it to my email address and I just keep it there and when I need to look up a verse and don't have my bible handy, I go there. It is www.biblegateway.com

Hi Beth~

My first scripture was easy for me. I was able to memorize it in about 3 days.

I pray for you everyday!!! I know how hard things can seem when you are going through this turmoil. But, He IS with you. Just trust in Him!
Love ya!

Hi Beth. Here is my new scripture:

1Peter 5:7 Cast all your worries upon him because he cares for you.

My first verse was pretty easy to memorize. I think sometimes we're led to certain verses and that makes it easy because it's clearly something we need at that time. Know what I mean?

So, my new verse is one I actually know, but it's my favorite verse.

"I can do all things through Christ, Who strengthens me." Phil 4:13.

Just jumping in here for the first time.

I have chosen the scripture Isaiah 49:16 -
I will not forget thee; I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands.

I learn best when I'm creative, so I made an image for this scripture. You can see it on my blog at http://www.MerrieMelody.blogspot.com/

Beth, Here is my new scripture:

But the widsom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.
James 3:17 NIV

I learned my first scripture thanks to a song I made up to go along with it. Don't worry, I'll spare you all the vocals.

We're hiding God's word in our hearts.
