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!

    The world is unprincipled. It's a dog eat dog out there! The world doesnt' fight fair. But we don't live or fight our battles that way. never have, never will. The tools of our trade aren't for marketing or manipulation, but they are for demoloshing that entire massively currupt culture. We use our powerful God – tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the strjucture of life shpaed by christ. Our tools are ready at hand for clearing the ground of every obstruction and building lives of obedience into maturity.
