Siesta Scripture Memory Team Verse 18!

Hey, my fellow Scripture-memory buddies!

It’s Tuesday and that means it’s Bible study day for us at LPM. I don’t get to tarry, but trust me when I tell you I wouldn’t forget you for anything. I think of you continually, especially when I’m practicing my verses. We’re on the 18th Scripture out of 24! I can’t believe it! I have chosen my verse this time based on our Tuesday lecture study of the Book of Revelation. I wish so much we were all going through this series together. I would so dearly love to look across that sanctuary and see the faces of women I’ve come to know by bloggerly terms of endearment

Michellemabelle (I sing the song every time I see one of your comments. Btw, I know you are doing A Heart Like His and I want to apologize for my hair. It’s even too big for my taste and my bangs looks like I’m covering a long, diagonal scar on my forehead. I took over my own coiffing soon after that. Big hair is a delicate thing. A very personal thing. One can only do it herself and have confidence.)

Georgia Jan (whose personal friendship I’d never have known apart from Siestaville!)

And “mama”s of all sorts: Moose Mama, Longmeadow Mama, and Lemonade Making Mama, to name just a few. You, Big Mama, and Boomama inspired my own admittedly uncreative but joyfully descriptive name, Siesta Mama.

You may as well know that if you don’t have a picture and if I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting you face-to-face, I, visual person that I am, have conjured up my own snapshot of you based on your blogger name that pops into my head every time I see your ID. It’s a risk, is all I’m saying.

OK, I’m losing focus. You guys do that to me constantly. Back to my memory verse. I have chosen Revelation 17:14 because one of the commentators I’m studying, W. Hendriksen, Th.D., who wrote a 1939 classic called More Than Conquerors, says the entire Book of Revelation can be summed up in that one verse. I loved it and thought, even based on my non-scholarly experience with the Book, how right he is! As a result, I’ve challenged my whole class to memorize it, too. So, if you’re one of our Home Girls, this probably needs to be your verse! As for the rest of you, it’s a wonderful thing to know in advance and in these times in which we live, no matter how “they” make war against the Lamb, He WILL overcome. There is only one Lord of lords and King of kings.

Revelation 17:14 (NIV)
“They will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them because He is Lord of lords and King of kings–and with Him will be His called, chosen and faithful followers.”

Take heart, Siestas! He has overcome the world!

Love, Beth

    Totally fell of the scripture memory wagon over the summer,and boy did my harried summer and back to school life take a toll on my soul without it! I am back in out of sheer desperation for God's powerful truth! I love Beth's verse, but I had already chosen this:

    Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always. Remember the wonders he has done,his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced, O descendants of Abraham his servant, sons of Jacob, his chosen ones.

    "Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor? Who has ever given to God that God should repay him?"
    For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.

    Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? …No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    Dear Beth Moore, from sister in Christ;Angels on the Wing,Susie. I love you so, when you speak the word of God,every time it directly has somehthing to do with something I am dealing with. I love a man that knows Christ, but has not lived for Christ, he is lost in drugs and alcohol, yet he is desperately seeking a way out of it, slow to learn, eager for a way out. He is a man that "still waters run deep" he often spends his time at a park near his home and it is his sancturay where he spends alot of time alone, and speaks to God there, he hopes he will be forgiven, he hopes that God will send him someone to help him find his way, hence, I saw in a dream all these demons opppressing him, and some possessing him, and the Lord warned me what I would be up against, yet that all I could be was an example of Christ, and pray for him and intercede that he would be dellivered, and let the Holy Spirit do the work within, and just continue living my life as a reflection of Christ, ;not preachy, or shoving it down his throat, but live by example, and not talk so much as to instead show by my living wittness, that he needs Jesus. This man is a very troubled man, yet very humble, very kind, and a good,tender hearted man, yet he was raped by many men, and tied to a tree as a young boy of 12, and it has scarred him all his life of 46 years, please Beth, tell me what to do , how can I help him, only thru prayer do I know that much I can do, i dearly love this man, in spite of his drug addiction and alcoholism, for I see his beauty of spirit, and his god given potential. I suggested a 12 step program, but he is afraid of how many people in our town will give him a hard time and judge him, he is like the prodical son, who is seeking a way home, but does not know how to get there, he needs something of Gods intervention, help me , please to know what is that I ,but not so much me, as what God can do for him, set him free, heal him, and bring him back home with Jesus, he is heavy on my heart, please Beth , I desire Gods will and guidance, I dont know if I am even suppose to be in his life, I just know I love him, care for him, and need the Savior to save this man,help me please as to know what to do, if i am not meant to be with this man, I need to know that too, and I dont, I am not sure, so please ,feedback from you or my siestas would certainly help me, as to which place in this rrealationship, I need to be for my loving mans Highest Good, If I am to leave him, or stay and pray and be a wittness for Christ, which is what i feel in my heart is where God wants me right now, however, I just do not know all the details of what or how to deal with all this, God please deliver him!!!!!!In Jesus name I ask, amen….Susie, angels on the wing!!!
