So how did you all do on your 2nd verse? Can you believe how fast the time goes by before it's time to choose another? This last verse of mine was harder for me to memorize. But I know why it was. I never wrote it out on 3 x 5 cards! Those cards really help me! I have had a couple of you ask me if there are some good suggestions to memorizing so I thought I'd just give a couple!
1. I write my verse out on 3x5 cards and put in prominent places I will be ( ie, car, kitchen, desk at work etc. )
2. I put my verse in my "notes" application on my iphone. If I am ever sitting idol somewhere (and I don't mean at a stop light!)....I can get on my notes and the verse is right there for me to keep rehearsing.
3. Write your verse out on the mirror in your bedroom or bathroom with a wipe off pen! ( don't worry , it will come off! ... this is actually Emily's method)
I hope these are helpful suggestions! OK, so we are on to now our 3rd verse!
I want to share something with you guys. I had a really hard night one night last week. As I laid my head on my pillow, I started to cry a little. I started to pray... and then I know the Lord brought my scripture verses to my mind. I began to pray my scriptures, personalizing them. It was so beautitul. They fit the situation I was so deeply sad about... so perfectly. And I started crying more only this time it was not sad tears. "Lord, would I be memorizing all of these scriptures....if this situation were not in my life?" I was so thankful that I had those verses in my mind and heart. When my mind starts to go to those places "what if this never changes" etc. I can discipline myself to remember to think of God's Word and the Scriptures that I am memorizing. God's very word! So powerful. So from my Fathers heart! So what I need! I would imagine the same is true for you too.
My verse for this week is from one of my wonderful friends Jan. She shared this verse on her very first post. I love this woman like a sister and like a mom. So I actually call her my "Mom-ster!" Over 8 years ago, she suddenly lost her beloved husband. If you go back to the first memory verse post, you will see her verse entry, and why she chose it. She is such a testimony to a woman who lives for and trusts in the Lord completely. (And by the way... so are you Nancy!) These two widowed woman... I have so much awe and respect for. I love watching what verses you two will choose! ........
I LOVE the verse I'm doing this next two weeks. I LOVE the verse I did the past two weeks (Remember I shared I wanted to use it as a prayer for my girls?)... I LOVE the verses I've done since January before we started with Scripture Sisters together. Hmm, there is a theme going on here... I am LOVING every verse I choose. Man God's Word... is so beautiful! K, sorry I got a little long winded... I will post my verse now. Dont forget to state why you've chosen your verse this time!
So, I am just thinking that if after you post your verse, why not share a testimony of how memorizing these scriptures are blessing you... we'd love for you to share! (I say we because we will all come back a little later this week and next and read them!) And I know we all will be blessed!
