Siesta Scripture Memory Team: Verse 14!

If it weren’t Scripture memory day, I wouldn’t have posted this fast after yesterday’s entry for anything on earth. If you didn’t get a chance to read Melissa’s post “Oh, Yes, Jesus Loves Me,” enter your memory verse here but be sure and go back and read the previous one. It was true ministry in every sense of the word. Thank you, Lis.

OK, Scripture Memory Team! Well, as it turns out for all of us, we really did need these verses this year, didn’t we? I’ve had a season I wasn’t expecting, packed with many challenges, concerns, and fears but, praise His glorious Name, it’s also been packed with a whole lot of Jesus. And that’s what I want, Girlfriend. More than anything on earth. Perhaps you’ll be able to tell from my selection this time that I am, once again, working on something in particular. I’m not just looking to memorize, Sister. I’m looking to change. Scripture memory alone will just make you arrogant. Lapping up those Scriptures like they are the only spring in your desert will make you different.

I’m doing two in tandem:

“I have resolved that my mouth will not sin.” Psalm 17:3b NIV

“Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips.” Psalm 141:3 NIV

I love you. Stay with it, Siestas!

    1 Corinthians 13:1-2 NLT

    "If I could speak in any language in heaven or on earth but didn't LOVE others, I would only be making meaningless noice like a loud gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I knew everything about everything, but didn't LOVE others, what good would I be? And if I had the gift of faith so that I could speak to a mountain and make it move, without LOVE I would be no good to anybody."

    P.S. I know I am VERY late with this. I am LOVING the scripture memory. My biggest problem is choosing each time. I feel like a child with a tremendous sweet tooth who is put into a wonderful candy shop and told to choose just one piece of candy. Sometimes it just takes awhile to make that very important decision. 🙂
