Siesta Scripture Memory Instructions

Hey, Sweet Things! I hope you had the sweetest Christmas day. You guys had such special traditions. I loved picturing many of you yesterday doing the very things you described. Yolanda, I keep thinking about you coming from a sharecropper’s family and getting to pick out anything you wanted from the grocery store at Christmas. That you got the okra and your brother got the cool whip made me so happy. What a culinary pair. I hope so much I’m remembering those details right! If I’m butchering your story, correct me and forgive me.

Our family had such a great day! We stretched from a 22 month-old to two nearly 80 year-olds. We read the Christmas story together, prayed as a family, and tore into presents of all shapes and sizes. I was so whipped by late last night that I almost couldn’t make it to the mattress but the Moores, Jones, and Fitzpatricks had indeed celebrated the birth of Christ and shared much joy and laughter. And food. God lent me the cooking gift for 24 hours and my meal was so stinking good that I kept wanting to high-five my own self. Every time the conversation went to something else, I tried to subtly steer it back to my miraculous kitchen extravaganza and how it all came off at the same time. These are Christmas miracles, people. Not pearls before swine at the Moore house.

I don’t have a single picture to show you right now because I never picked up my cell phone. Melissa took great pictures with an actual camera but those will have to be uploaded. We’ll get them to you soon. So many fun things happened yesterday but I’ll mention the one that still had me tickled when I got into bed last night: Jackson’s first shot at karaoke. I got him a Phineas and Ferb Karaoke Machine and his parents thought it best not to get it out of the box until they got home at a later hour. Amanda videoed his debut last night and texted it to me on my I-phone. I’ve watched it over and over. I sent it to Travis and he had the good sense to love it, too. He thought maybe he noted a worship leader in the making based, I believe, on Jackson’s enthusiasm for the craft rather than his actual pitch. It is so hilarious and endearing that I can hardly stand it. Of course, little Miss is right up in his business but he occasionally acquiesced and put the microphone up to her mouth. She, too, sang with considerable gusto. The two main words of the kids’ song were “born again” (really LOUD) so the karaoke experience was the richer for its fine theology.

OK, I promised myself I wouldn’t do this because I need to stick to the task at hand and keep this post very focused so that we can direct people back to it in the future. SO, on with our important purpose: how to participate in the 2011 Siesta Scripture Memory Team! Here are a few things to know up front:

*For you new comers, “Siesta” is just an endearment for “Sister.” There’s no club to join and no person you need to become. If you’ve trusted Jesus as your personal Savior, you’re a sister in Christ. When we first began the blog several years ago, it never occurred to any of us how much we’d come to love each other. As the community grew closer and closer and the participants more and more familiar with one another, one of you asked what name we should call each another. I tried to say, “I’ll tell you what we are: We’re sistahs!” but spell-check switched it to “siestas.” It stuck and that’s been us ever since. We even liked the thought that its actual meaning is to take a nap. We’ll know we’ve been a place of divine intervention if we’re a respite from the female competition and clatter out there. Only Jesus can give us that kind of relief in this exhausting culture.

*We call this a Scripture memory “team” because that’s exactly what we are. We’re a really long line of women standing shoulder to shoulder with our swords drawn. And we don’t draw our swords to wound people, to convict our family members (God’s job) or to cut off the ears of our hearers. We draw our swords to fight the good fight of faith. While I was helping stuff Siesta Scripture Memory Spirals into envelopes on the 22nd, I said to my coworkers, “JUST THINK, what would happen if 6000+ women really did memorize 24 Scriptures in 2011?? What are the implications of that? What kind of repercussions might that have in our personal lives and our homes?” And we got all riled up. You bet this is a team. Don’t be too cool for it. Remember, God’s Spirit is a fire. If we’re too cool, we can’t help but quench it. If cheesy works around here, we’re not ashamed.

*Very often you will see me refer to SSMT. Just so you’ll know, that is an abbreviation for “Siesta Scripture Memory Team.” I also want the rest of you to keep in mind that we don’t limit the entire blog to our Scripture memory participants. It has a big presence on here because it’s twice a month but we still do lots of other things. Please don’t feel left out or forgotten.

OK, NOW FOR THE INSTRUCTIONS. You can cut and paste these somewhere if necessary. Here’s how it will go:

1. On the 1st and 15th of every month of 2011, you will find a post by 8:00 in the morning where I will ask for your memory verse and give you mine. This will begin New Year’s Day. You are committing to 24 Scriptures in 12 months. In previous years, I’ve found this to be a very doable pace. If you do much more, you’ll tend to fall behind and not retain. If you do much less, the impact is negligible. You really can do this. So many of you will surprise yourselves with what you’re capable of doing in the power of the Spirit. Yes, it takes work but it’s tremendously fulfilling and the results are nearly immeasurable. Look at it this way: you’re going to be meditating on something: unforgiveness, toxic memories, misery, lust, greed, dissatisfaction, jealousy, competition. Choose Scripture! Christ Himself said as a man thinks, so is he. He also said His words are spirit and life. This is work worth doing, Sweet Thing. Never – NOT ONCE – have I ever known anyone to get to the end of a Scripture memory commitment and say that it didn’t make any real difference. Not a single time.

2.You are to enter the verse you’ve chosen to memorize for that two-week period within twenty-four hours of the post going up. I’ve been asked many times if it’s okay if you’re late supplying your verse and, yes, of course it is, but try to avoid doing it often. The people who make it to the very end of the year are overwhelmingly those who stay up with it month to month. Please know up front that one of the important parts of this process is the exercise of self discipline. This culture is mass producing wimpy narcissists. Year-long commitments like these that require punctuality and focused energy push back on that degenerating trend. All that to say, please don’t drop out if you get behind. I just want you to know that this will be much more successful if you treat it as a real, live commitment you are willing to work hard to keep.

3. When you clock in with your verse those two times a month, keep your comments limited to your name, city, verse and translation. Long comments on SSMT days are no-no’s. It won’t take you long to figure out why we maintain that rule. Wait till you see the powerful sight of hundreds if not thousands of verses flowing down the comment stream. It is a gorgeous sight. When you’re having a bad day, all you have to do is scroll down a few hundred of your sisters’ Scripture selections and I promise you, you’ll get a word. It’s a very powerful thing. Here is a sample comment:

Beth from Houston, Texas: “Forget about what’s happened! Don’t keep going over old history. Be alert! Be present! I’m about to do something brand new. It’s bursting out. Don’t you see it? There it is! I’m making a road in the desert and rivers in the badlands.” Isaiah 43:18-19 The Message

(That was my first Scripture from last year so I wrote it from memory. If you choose that one, you better double check it. It’s at least 95 per cent accurate…I think. Yep. Double check it.) Always add your translation because so many of your sisters will want to know where you found the wording for your entry. One of the great impacts of this process is how much we reap from each other’s selections. Often you’ll see a sister say, “I’m doing the one so-and-so did last time!” (Yes, you can make a comment that brief. Those can be fun. Occasionally you’ll even see someone write, “For the sake of my marriage, I’ve chosen to memorize…” That’s okay, too, but try to keep it very succinct.)

4. As often as possible, choose a verse that means something to you in your present season or circumstance. This is the reason why we don’t all memorize the same Scripture. We’re not all going through the same things. The more you let God lead you to verses that direct you or edify your soul in your present circumstances, the more He will renew your mind toward your challenges. This is a huge part of 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 where we’re told to demolish strongholds and take our thoughts captive to Christ. If you don’t have a verse on your mind or you’re drawing a blank when the 1st or 15th rolls around, you are welcome to share mine. I will always include it in the post. You might also look at a few of the comments and see if one of theirs resonates with you. I say this next part with a grin: try to refrain from memorizing Scriptures that you think your spouse or your children need to learn. Memorize what you need to learn. That means do your best to avoid jotting your verse on a stick note and planting it on your bathroom mirror where your man can see it and repent of his sins. He probably won’t because he’s got your game. I bet you can guess how I know that.

5. I strongly recommend that you stick with only one verse to memorize each time. (This is just a recommendation and not a rule. You’re free to do whatever works for you.) Keep it simple and meaningful. (If I were addressing you live, I’d have you repeat that sentence back to me so just go ahead and say it out loud in order to nail it down. That sentence could be your best friend through this process.) If you do too many verses or get too complicated, you will soon be overwhelmed and want to drop out. Better to do 24 simpler verses over a 12 month period of time than a chapter over the first month then quit. We want this to be a discipline we practice for the rest of our lives. Think marathon. Not sprint.

6. Either shortly before or after making your entry each 1st and 15th in the blog comment, write the verse by hand in your own spiral. (Again, that’s a recommendation and not a rule. I’ve discovered that there’s something about writing it with your own hand and picturing it later in your own handwriting that helps it sink into your memory bank. I’m not entirely sure why.) Take that spiral with you everywhere you go. Read it and read it and read it and read it. Do mental gymnastics with it. Flip that baby over and over. Many women have told me along the way that they’re not good at memorization and I truly understand that. I also beg to offer two responses: First, that may change. Give the Holy Spirit a chance to do something brand new with you. Second, even if you don’t get your verses down word for word, you are still meditating on them as you read and reread them. You still, thereby, accomplish one of the most important goals: captivating the mind to Christ. You just can’t lose on this one. Either way, it has a powerful effect.

OK, I think that’s enough to get us prepared for January 1st. Now, let me tell you well in advance how to qualify for our Siesta Scripture Memory Team Celebration mid-January of 2012. (I’m writing this from my home on Sunday evening and I forget exactly which weekend in January 2012 we scheduled it. I’ll double check and let you know shortly so you can save money for your transportation and hotel. We do not charge for the event. Your entrance fee is your well-used spiral. By the way, Travis is planning to be there again to lead us in worship and my beloved LPM staff and daughters are looking really forward to it, too.) Here’s how you qualify:

*Clock in by first name and city at least 21 out of 24 times. (But please make your goal 24 out of 24!) Let me reiterate that you can be late with your entry on a 1st or 15th of any month but, by the end of the year, there has to be a record in the comment sections of you signing in at least 21 out of 24 times on a SSMT post. Make sense? Please give us 24 hours to post your comment before you assume it got lost. We still moderate all comments and the amount we get on SSMT days necessitates a slower pace. Thank you for your cooperation!

*Bring your spiral to the celebration. Again, that’s your ticket in.

*Be prepared to say any 12 of your 24 memory verses to another Siesta (of your choice) during the designated time at the celebration. (We get in pairs.) Some of you will be tempted to let this be a deal breaker but don’t back out! Siestas are really sweet and patient with each other and we are notorious for giving each other hints. We can even act out charades if necessary. If you’re one of those who genuinely struggles with memorization, just tell your memory buddy up front and she’ll give you all the grace you need.ย  Tell her the gist of the verse as accurately as you possibly can. She’ll be able to tell that you are well acquainted with it and that the goal was accomplished even if you can’t say the verse word-for-word.

*Register for the event when the time comes. (December 1, 2011)

Whew! Have I exhausted you?? I’ve worn myself to a pulp. Sorry this is so wordy! We just want to answer as many of your questions up front as possible.

I want to tell you something before I sign off. You have impacted my walk with Christ. This community has given me encouragement when I was nearly down for the count. I am more disciplined because you are here. You make a difference in my life. You make me think, and laugh, and study. You offer me company when I am lonely. You stir me up to love and good works. You are used of God in my life to make this hard world a better place.

That’s what Siestaville is for. Women walking alongside women on our way Home, stirring up excitement toward that great day. SSMT is just one way we do that. AND IT’S A WHOPPER. Let’s do it, Sisters, starting this coming January 1st! I’ll talk to you again about other things before then but I don’t want the New Year to take you by surprise.

Your blog mama loves you.

    Hi Siestas! I have been reading this blog off and on last year and absolutely love the comments and encouragement. I have decided to join the SSMT and will also ask my friends to do the same. I think this is only my second comment on a “blog” ever, but I’m excited to see God work in my life this year.

    Happy New Year from Niceville, FL (and yes it’s very Nice here!)

    Beth and sisters-
    just wanted to share something with you…
    my 19 year old daughter asked me to “make” her something for CHRISTmas- this was her only gift request and it was made on December 20th. Our CHRISTmas was to be on the lean side as far as gifts to share with each other- hubby has been laid off and working temp jobs for two years now.
    I wandered around Michael’s crafts for close to forever- I am not a crafty person…
    I found a wood box (on *clearance*!) like the kind you could put recipes in and I could hear the Holy Spirit- you could put some of your favorite Scripture in this box… so I bought some cute scrapbook paper to cover the box and some colorful index cards to fill the box- 150 cards. And I got to work- didn’t have too much time to work, and I started filling cards with my favorites– the clock was ticking and I was all a panic- and into my mind popped the Siesta Memory Team… You helped me fill those cards- I had tears streaming down my face as I read the Scripture you had hidden in your heart in the past. Much of that Scripture is on cards, some personalized with my thoughts on the Scripture- how it was dear to me. Needless to say I finished the project and it has already been well loved by daughter.
    I look forward to joining you this year!
    with love

    Yes, I want to do the Scripture Memory this year! We lost my mom this past January, and we had a divorce after 3 years of trying to work things through. It was a hard year, but God is showing that 2011 is the year for Him to peel away the hurtful things and show me a whole new world!

    Rebecca says:

    Hi Beth,
    For some of us we can’t see to fund a scripture book but still want to join in on the memory verses. Would it be possible for you to make the cover of the Siestas’ Memory Book available for us to copy and paste into a word file? Then we can size it and glue it to fit a book or box that we will be using for ourselves. I am very timid in asking this but I see others are having a time to pay for the book. If I am out of line I am sorry and would love to start with all of you in January. My spirit is low and I want to try this memory verse with all of you. But I feel like I am talking to a God who has trouble loving me. And I am sick of whinning. So love to you all. Rebecca

      Dear Rebecca,
      I’m praying this moment that God will impress you in coming days with just how capable He truly is of loving you . . . and not just a little bit, He loves you lavishly, beyond all measure!
      Do take those sorts of defeating thoughts captive and toss them in the deepest dungeon, never to be seen again. Then assure yourself regularly that NOTHING is impossible with God, He has not the slightest trouble loving you. You might even start your SSMT year with some verses that promise you of His extravagant love for you. How ’bout Jeremiah 31:3?
      Love in Him,
      Leila in Carrollton

      • Rebecca says:

        Thank you Leila,
        I plan on starting the verses with love, but I am having a hard time with the concept that I am not really a bad person. My heart is so open to others pain and hurt and yet I cannot accept or feel God’s love.
        How is it some people know instantly that God loves them. I just read a book where the author puts the cross behind every situation. When I do that I see how awful humans are to place Christ on the cross for us. I know this was God’s plan for us for our sins.
        Let me compare it this way. My earthly father has a hard time showing love. A hug is not a true hug, a compliment is not or ever given. I love my dad but whenever we speak on the phone he has to go. When he is finished he is finished.I know his childhood was hard and his behaviour reflect this.

        My uncle abused me and my dad thought it was the uncle just showing how he loved us. Men are hard to understand in my head. Do you know where I am going with this. I love God but does he really love me?? Thanks for listening. I am grateful to all of you….Rebecca PS sorry for any confusion.

        • Leila Hollingsworth says:

          Dear sweet siesta,
          You do indeed have some obstacles of your past to get over but, (as God says so many times in His word), Fear not! He is THE great knocker-downer of spiritual obstacles and stronghold walls!
          I hear you saying that the attitudes and behaviors of some of the menfolk in your life have colored how you perceive your God. Here’s an interesting thought – God isn’t a man. He isn’t even THE MAN, as some people call Him. Even tho’ He made us in His image, He’s not human. Not even close.
          This exquisite fact means that He has none of the weaknesses and makes none of the bad choices we earthbound mortals are so prone to. He’s not petty, aloof or distant. He always has time for us, never too tired or busy to sit down and take all the time we need with Him.
          ‘Twould be wonderful if the men in our lives were able to love us as God loves us, but,alas they are just humans. And that means flaws, imperfections and failings.
          God is perfect so He loves you perfectly. As you go searching for memory verses about His love for you, keep reminding yourself that His love is not earthly love, not human love. It’s sooooo much more and better and different!! It’s the love our hearts deeply crave even when we can’t describe the craving we feel. And we can’t find that love from other people, they just aren’t up to the task ’cause they aren’t God.
          You might also want to ponder some of the Psalms like 119, 136, 146 and 147 which describe so many of the awesome attributes of God. I believe that as you dig in to study who He is, you will see just how capable and willing He is to love you. Remember, the Bible is God’s love letter to you. (I think that means the Psalms are His love songs!) And since He can never lie to us, every word to you is true!! Blessed thought!
          I pray you feel His love more on this day than you ever have and more on each tomorrow than you did the day before.

          • Rebecca says:

            Thank you Leila,
            I have never heard that God is not human.If we are in his image and he is not human I get that He is better than us, but don’t we carry his characteristics of him in us. I’ve studies psalms 139 but I also have a time putting his promises to me. Beth explained it before but the concept of His promises being ours and not biblical people is hard to get.
            This is so very great to have this conversation with you. Thank you Rebecca

          • Kelly says:

            Rebecca-you could not ever know how I can relate to where you are. Been there and done that and continue to wrestle with. But, here is one thing that I know for sure and you will find out as you begin committing scripture to memory. What goes into your mind will sink like an anchor into your spirit and those doubts you are having begin to come to the light. What ever is exposed by light can no longer be hidden in darkeness. You have taken the first step to healing. You confessed it to the people that read and contribute to this community. I am pretty sure that when you confessed it to us you have confessed it to Him. Listen to this awesome promise: “Confess your faults(sins, Tresspasses, heartaches, injuries) to one another and pray for one another that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”
            We are standing with you in Christ to see you through to victory.
            In Christ,

    I am looking forward to participating in the Scripture Memory with all the Siesta’s! This will be my first time to participate. I have not really memorized scriptures for a couple years. Looking forward to the blessing and challenge! I know the Lord has great things planned for each one of us this upcoming year.

    Hey! I am making the commitment—I have been nudged many times in the past few years to be totally in the Word. I am giving in to that nudge. Pray that I keep this commitment and that I can share the joy!

    I’m in. Thanks, Beth, I love the thought of so many women memorizing scripture and what kind of effect that has to have, both on us and on the world. I attempted this last time and quit halfway through. My goal this year is the finish line: December!
