Memory Verse #12

We have made it HALFWAY through the year!

Beth Moore stated today on the Siesta Scripture Memory Team Blog “Hear bells and whistles and lots of music, maybe even a few beginning bars of the Hallelujah chorus: YOU MADE IT EXACTLY HALFWAY!!!! You are officially over the hump after you get this entry behind you.”

“Way to go, Sisters. Way to go! It’s a pretty good feeling, isn’t it? Don’t think for a second that the enemy didn’t try to steal away your focus and commitment. If you made it this far, you fought with him and won. This is a big victory. Celebrate it with your very faithful God.”

Here’s my verse for this time. I’m using the same one that Beth Moore chose. I was just thinking of this verse today when I was thinking about a conversation I recently had with my 12-year-old son! I’ve been telling him that verse, but then I was thinking I should have him memorize it with me. Then, I read her blog this morning & she chose 2 Timothy 2:15 too! So I decided that was a sign that I needed to memorize it with him. I memorized the King James Version as a child, but I like this one too!

2 Timothy 2:15 (NET)
Make every effort to present yourself before God as a proven worker who does not need to be ashamed, teaching the message of truth accurately.

She also asked that we summarize in one sentence what it has meant to

memorize God’s word this year. Here’s mine…

Memorizing God’s Word this year has been a JOY as I’ve worked with my sons to memorize scripture with them.

I’d love to hear your verse & what it’s meant to you to memorize scripture this year!

Please leave me a comment!

  1. Thanks for sharing with us. It is wonderful that your sons are memorizing too!

    My verse:

    “For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.” Romans 8:24-25 NKJV

    Memorizing scripture this year has helped me renew, be refreshed and closer to the Lord!
