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!

    Isaiah 40:28-29 (HCSB)
    Do you not know?
    Have you not heard?
    Yahweh is the everlasting God,
    the Creator of the whole earth.
    He never grows faint or weary;
    there is no limit to His understanding.
    He gives strength to the weary
    and strengthens the powerless.

    And in French:
    Esaie 40:28-29
    Ne le sais-tu pas? ne l'as-tu pas
    appris? C'est le Dieu d'eternite, l'Eternel, Qui a cree les extremites de la terre; Il ne se fatigue point, Il ne se lasse
    point; On ne peut sonder son intelligence.
    Il donne de la force a celui qui est fatigue, Et Il augmente la
    vigueur de celui qui tombe en defaillance.
