Siesta Scripture Memory Verse 15!

Hey, Scripture Memory Buddies!

Every single month my anticipation of our January celebration doubles! Just picture all those hugs and high fives! Has this been a great support group, or what? Although I know I would have still memorized Scripture because my poor obsessive mind spins out of control without it, I cannot imagine that I would have memorized the same amount over the course of this year. Accountability and COMMUNITY are beautiful things. Of all the activities we’ve gotten to do on our LPM blog, honestly, this is one of my favorites. I hope you’re getting plenty of opportunities to put your memory verses to practice. Just in case you haven’t found them all that practical, you ought to try mine from our last segment. It was on the tongue. Let me simply say that, for some unknown reason, my verse came to my mind about 25 times a day.

I’m also excited about the selection God has impressed on my heart for this round.

“I cry out to God Most High, to God, who fulfills His purpose for me.” Psalm 57:2 NIV

Here’s what God is using that verse to say to me right now: When I’m in a really hard and hurtful situation, somehow the present difficulty of it overrides my conscious thought that God is going to use it in my life and then through my life. Not one time in my entire tenure on this planet has He ever failed to turn around and use the hardship for good. NOT ONCE. Not when I gave Him enough time and cooperation. Yet, in the midst of it, I often can only hang onto Him for dear life while we ride the wave to shore and then stand there in the aftershock and look like I’ve just been on the spin cycle of a washing machine. Afterward, when He invariably turns it into some kind of maturity, intimacy, insight or ministry, I think, “Why didn’t I just trust Him for that at the time??? Why did I have to take it so personally and injuriously?” I want to learn to CONSISTENTLY claim the victory right there in the worst of the pain or crisis. At the very moment that I’m crying out to God Most High for help, as the psalmist says, I want to proclaim that He’s smack in the middle of fulfilling His purpose for me. Challenging stuff.

But that’s one of the things that keeps us so interested and engaged with Christ. We can never get this thing conquered.

I am so honored to take this journey with you. He is everything, Sweet Thing. He is absolutely EVERYTHING! Savor His Presence today.

OK, let’s hear your first name, city, verse and translation!

I love you,

    Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

    2 Corinthians 12:8-10 (NIV)

    To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given to me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness". Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I will delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
