It's almost time for our next Siesta Memory Verse. How can that be?
Last year I wanted to learn 12 new verses and decided to learn the verse listed each month on my Living Proof Ministries 2008 calendar. It had been years since I really endeavored to learn Scripture and not paraphrase it in the Annette Texan Version. I rushed my father to the ER 01/08/08 which set off a chain of events and drama as many of you know. He was hospitalized for a total of 10 months in 2008 due to a doctor's error and died 01/28/2009. It was a long year, I did not memorize Scripture. Last December I decided enough's enough, I am memorizing Scripture. And then Beth Moore challenged us to do it, just the accountability I needed.
A couple of times a verse has popped out at me. A couple of times I thought my verse will be God is love or Jesus wept. March 1st a couple of verses jumped out at me, I thought maybe that's it, maybe not, it's 2 verses. I attended church that night as a friend's guest...the 2 verses were in the sermon, the next day they were in a devotional, you know what - Eph 4:2-3 were it...March 15, Ps 19:1-3 jumped out at me. I thought 3 verses...Lord you are kidding, He wasn't. Linda used them in a post and my priest used them in the monthly newsletter - they were it!
Eph 2:2-3 -Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
Ps 19:1-3 -The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.
I don't have my April 1st verses yet, but I know I will, I think they will pertain to Easter and if it's more than 1 verse, as I discussed with Ang today - I believe all things are possible through Christ, I will live it out and believe I can learn several verses.
Y'all have a great weekend and be waiting for the Lord to lead you to the Scripture you need for your life or a situation yet to come.
