Scripture memory #10
I realized I haven't posted the Scripture verses I'm memorizing in a while. In this post I listed the first five for the year. Today I'll list six through ten. I'm following along with Beth Moore and her "siestas" on the Living Proof Ministries blog, choosing a verse or passage from the Bible to memorize on the 1st and 15th of every month this year. Here's my continued list...
6. Hebrews 10:35-36 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised. (NIV) My friend Andrea and I shared this one. So nice to have a friend along on the journey... sharing life and memorizing God's Word!
7. Psalm 9:10 Those who know Your name will trust in You, for You, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek You. (NIV)
8. Mark 9:23 Everything is possible for him who believes. (NIV)
9. Psalm 42:5, 42:11, 43:5 Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God. (NIV) This was for May 1st, but I was about a week late in choosing a Scripture to memorize. I went through a few days that were very hard, feeling discouraged in so many areas. Our rent was due and we were short (it ended up being only two days late with the full amount), I was feeling frustrated about our current situation (not making quite enough, stuff still in storage in Minnesota, wondering if we needed to make tough new job decisions again, etc), plus having a super hard time with three year old Mercy. Then I was reading one morning in Psalms and came across this same verse three different times. And I realized I had allowed myself to worry instead of trust in full confidence. I made a choice then to put my hope in God... for I will yet praise Him. Through it all. And it made a huge difference in my attitude and my countenance. He is my peace.
10. 1 Thessalonians 5:15 See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek after that which is good for one another. (NASB) This one is for the whole family. Today I'm going to print it out and put it up for all to see and memorize.
