Memory Verses #13 - #14

OK, I haven't posted anything in a few weeks...I think about it often but don't take the time to sit down and write. I get so distracted when I start working on this blog...I start reading other blogs for inspiration and then look at the clock and realize I've sat at the computer for over an hour! Then I start feeling guilty for wasting so much time...so then I start boycotting the internet...Oh well. I better get this typed before I waste another hour. :)

My memory verses for July...

Colossians 3:12-14
"Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity."

I'm so thankful for Beth Moore giving us the challenge of memorizing 2 verses per month for the year! It holds me accountable. And I've enjoyed finding verses that apply to my life every few weeks. It's amazing what God has brought to my attention when I need to work on something!

Last week, I drove to Texarkana with Ethan and practiced all 14 verses all the way there and back (except when I was on the phone)! I love Beth Moore's idea of the notecard spiral because I can take it wherever I go. I just glanced at the verse "address" and then said the verse out loud and would glance at my notecard if I needed help. This was a great way to pass the time on the 3-hour drive all by myself. (Yes, I know Ethan was in the back seat but he wasn't much conversation. Actually, he took a long nap both ways!)
