Siesta Scripture Memory Team: Verse 16

Hey, my dear Scripture memory partners! It is very early in the morning and I am so happy to be all the way up in Fargo, North Dakota at a Living Proof Live. God brought us over 4300 people to this small city last night. Listen to this: over 300 of them were walk ups! More than we’ve ever had before. A few hundred of them just decided yesterday to come to the Fargodome and simply walked right up to the door and bought a ticket. We were astounded. We feel absolutely sure that a number of these darling women have never been to an event of this kind before. We are tremendously blessed. Last night toward the latter part of the session we were hit by one of the craziest storms I can remember at a Living Proof Live and had to ask them to stay for 30 more minutes, SO to tell you that we had some praise and worship last night is an understatement. I am so happy that Scripture records several places in which God’s voice sounded like thunder. We think there was a war in the heavenlies last night.

I need to have my face in my lesson for today so I don’t get to tarry here. I just wanted to make sure you were taken care of and that your Scripture memory post was up for the 15th. My thoughts most recently have been on the many people – children and young adults most disturbingly – who are chronically ill. If God does not intervene, terminally ill. I have wept a number of times recently for people I’ve never met and also bawled in my pillow for several I love. Life can be so incredibly brutal. I am focusing this time in my memory work on God’s great compassion and His care for all He has made.

Psalms 145:8-12 (NIV)
The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love. The Lord is good to all; He has compassion on all He has made. All You have made will praise You, O Lord; Your saints will extol You. They will tell of the glory of Your kingdom and speak of Your might,so that all men may know of Your mighty acts and the glorious splendor of Your kingdom.

If you have Travis’s CD called “Found,” you have a musical version of the psalm this portion is taken from. The song straight out of Psalm 145 is called “Forevermore” and if it doesn’t lead you to the Throne, I need to come take your pulse.

I love you so much, Siestas. Let’s hear your Scriptures! Because I’m in conference today then on two flights home, it make take a while to get in all your comments but , rest assured, they will finally make it on here! Amanda’s going to try to get to a place with Internet and help out. (Amanda reminded me that this is the first time one of our memory days has fallen on a Saturday while I was in conference. God is an excellent event planner!)

Verse, cities, and first names, Sweet Things!

    I had decided that I was going to stop my memory verse because I was getting too far behind. Than I went to the simulcast. I'm doing it because I want to. So here is my verses for today.

    Psalm 37:1-4

    Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away. Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.

    Finishing this passage:

    Psalm 8:1-9

    O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.
    When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. You made him ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet: all flocks and herds,and the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas.
    O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
