Siesta Scripture Memory Team: Verse 17!

Good morning, fellow Scripture-memory nerds! It’s the first day of September and we in the great Gulf Coast have survived yet ANOTHER scorcher! Hottest summer on record in Houston. I LOVE SEPTEMBER. Come, Fall! Please come quickly!

I am deeply grateful for the many invitations you’ve given us for praise over what God has been accomplishing in your lives. In particular, we were tremendously encouraged that the Holy Spirit overtook cold and awkward technology and met with many of you at the simulcast. We took much time in Monday staff prayer to boast in our God. We always rest assured any time something that complicated gets accomplished that God alone could have done it. He gets every ounce of praise. He could not have given us a better on-site host group than the one we had in Green Bay. I knew they would be warm and engaged but I didn’t know if they would be loud enough to lead the rest of the groups effectively in participation. That on-site group is absolutely critical to the experience. They exceeded every expectation I had. We went crazy over them.

You know, I have no memory of actually living there. We were transferred with the Army back to Arkansas when I was only two and that’s where I grew up so I understandably associate the piney woods with my upbringing more than any other place. My older brothers and sisters remember Green Bay very well and have told me many things about our family’s time there in the last several days. I came away from Wisconsin so incredibly honored to call it my birth state. I also came away from Wisconsin with a lot of cheese. You should see my refrigerator. By the way, I was crowned with cheese (you might have seen my crown at the end), which even I thought was probably appropriate. Queen of Cheese indeed. In my personality. In my enchilada. I love y’all so much. Smiling so hard that my morning face is getting a good stretch.

OK, now for our verses! I am continuing on with my portion from last time in Psalm 145:8-12. It is a very wordy five-verse segment and I just don’t have the memory work mastered yet. Too busy these last few weeks. So, I am going to do what I recommend you do. I’m going to hold up and get my last verses down before I add another set to them. If I don’t, I’ll get discouraged and overwhelmed and that’s the graveyard of all Scripture memory work. We want each verse to make it all the way to the marrow, not just sit on top of our skulls.

Now, how about yours? Name, city, and verse! We’re getting closer and closer to our celebration! Hang in there and keep sharpening that Sword!

I am so honored to be among those who journey with you as we “go from strength to strength till each appears before God in Zion.” (Ps. 84:7) You are a dearly loved part of ministry at Living Proof. I send you tons of affection from all who grace these doors. Every person who labors here knows to say the word “Siesta” with joy and esteem.

      Tina, Zalma MO. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love really is! Ephesians 3:18. (NLT)
