Awhile back, I told y'all about how i was joining Beth Moore's scripture memorization team. You can read more about it here & you can feel free to join in! Basically, you pick a scripture & memorize it! You have two weeks! The next two weeks you memorize a new scripture. The idea is to get some scripture not just READ, but memorized! Down in your spirit! :)
I started the 2nd go-round, on January 15th. And this was my verse... if you have been reading this blog for any length of time, I am sure you realize it is to help me in my quest to eating healthy.
"No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to man. And God is faithful, He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will provide a way out for you s that you can endure it."
1 Corinthians 10:13
I stopped blogging my verses, but not because i stopped the memorization team! Just kinda forgot to keep blogging about it! So here is my next verse:
"For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are - yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God's throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need."
Another one about temptation... showing that God sympathizes with our weaknesses! I love the second part of this! I knew that verse before - the one about us approaching his throne with confidence! But i didn't realize that it was right after a verse on temptation! We can be free to ask our God to help us when we are tempted - and to be CONFIDENT that He WILL help us!
"As for me, I look to the Lord for help. I wait confidently for God to save me, and my God will certainly hear me."
This one i didn't memorize! The shortest one, too! So i am going to continue working on it over the next two weeks, while i am also memorizing my new verse. And that one is:
"The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me. Your love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not abandon the works of your hands."
Good stuff! :) Do you have a favorite scripture to lean on? What is it?
