Happy New Year!
I'm determined for this year to get off to a great start.
I'm going to do it the right way and get my head in the Word!
I was over at Beth Moore's LPM Blog and was so inspired to get some scripture committed to memory in 2009! She put out a challenge to all of her readers to memorize 2 scriptures a month in 2009. We'll post the scripture we feel led to memorize in a blog comment on the 1st and the 15th of each month.
I've decided that I'll also post them on here so that I can journal a little about why I am choosing that scripture. Beth reminded us that so many of our problems start...and CAN end....in the mind. If we have God's word in there, plastered over the walls of our mind, our own thoughts (that can be so destructive) won't prevail....the Word of God will!!
So, my first verse for 2009 is this:
Jeremiah 33:3 (NIV) "Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things that you do not know."
Oh how I long to hear His voice more!! I would love to have Him tell me some great and unsearchable things! I need to remember to call to Him and not rely on my own devices when I'm stressed, in trouble, sad, afraid, etc! A simple truth but one I need to be reminded of constantly! So, there it is. I'll memorize Jeremiah 33:3 first.
I am really looking forward to calling to Him and having Him speak to me...even having Him direct me to which verse to memorize next!! If you want to do this too, go check out Beth's blog...but also let me know! I'd love to know what verses you're memorizing, too. This will be such an awesome source of encouragement.
