Siesta Scripture Memory Team: Verse 10!

Hey, Sweet Things! It’s been several days since I posted this but I have to get back on here and tell you how PROUD I am of you! I see some fresh fire in your Scripture memory! Our sign-ins had dipped just a tad and now they’re heading back up. I know that also means we have newbies and I’m just as thrilled about that. I know this is HARD but, Girlfriends, we will do few things with greater personal impact than plastering Scripture on the walls of our minds. I am so proud of you. Let’s see this through!

Original Post:
Hey, my dear Siestas! I’ve just been thinking about the power that resides in a personal testimony and how our stories with God are meant to be told. And not just one single encounter shared over and over, as beautiful as that can be, but a lifetime of experiences lived out with a living, breathing ever-faithful Redeemer. One of the things God warns us about often in His Word is not forgetting what He’s done: what we’ve seen with our own eyes, what we’ve experienced with our own hearts. Nobody and nothing gets to take those things from us. My memory verse this time talks about that very thing. It’s Deuteronomy 4:9 out of the New International Version.

“Be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them slip from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them.”

Keep telling your stories, Sweet Siestas. Don’t decide it wasn’t that big a deal after all…or that maybe you made it up, or that maybe it was just a coincidence. It was GOD. Revelation 12:11 says we overcome the enemy by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimonies! Let’s open our mouths wide and tell it.

Okay, now let’s hear yours! Name, city, and verse!
