So...Beth Moore gave us a challenge on her LPM Blog at the beginning of 2009 to memorize 2 verses a month for the entire year. I was so excited because I need that accountability. I have faithfully been posting my verses and writing them in my spiral all year. I practice them as much as I can...especially when I'm getting ready in the mornings. I also found another great time to work on them is in the car when I'm driving quite a distance. This summer I had to drive to Texarkana without Eric a few times, so I kept the spiral in my lap and practiced my verses as I drove. (I kept my eyes on the road...just put the spiral up by the steering wheel when I needed a hint.)
Now, Beth Moore is hosting a Siesta Scripture Memory Team Celebration at her church in January for those that have kept this up all year! I am SO EXCITED!!! My sister and I have both been working on memorizing verses, so we plan to go together! We can't wait! It's going to be so much fun! What a thrill it will be to finally be in the church where she tapes a lot of her Bible studies!
Well, now I need to catch up posting the verses here. I didn't realize how behind I am on putting them here, so there are quite a few.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
2 Corinthians 10:3-4
For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does.
The weapons we fight with are not weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.
2 Corinthians 10:5
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down, and when you get up.
Whew! That was a lot! I have enjoyed finding verses to help me with whatever I'm going through at a particular time and to remind me of God's great promises.
This has been such a great experience...maybe we can do it again next year and post verses to each other on our blogs. Any takers??
