2011 Siesta Scripture Memory Team: Verse 22!

Three more to go!
Three more to go!
Three more to go!

(Hear that all cheerleader like)

Ladies, the finish line is in sight! Let’s run the rest of this race marked out for us. What a privilege this has been, you guys.

I think I told you guys recently that I’d gotten a new Bible. I absolutely love it. I always choose one Book of the Bible to read through carefully when I get a new one and this time I chose the Book of Acts. I’ve been so incredibly inspired by it. The verse I’m memorizing this time is for the sake of prayer. (Do you guys often use your memory verses in prayer, turning them into intercession? It really stirs up my faith and my strength.) I’m praying that what happened when Peter was in the midle of bringing the Scriptures to attentive listeners will happen in our environments, too. I’m praying this for my pastor and those who hear the Scriptures through him. I’m praying it for myself and for those I’m privileged to serve. I now pray it for you and those you teach and encourage with the Word of God.

Beth, Houston. “While Peter was still saying these things, the Holy Spirit fell on all who heard the Word.” Acts 10:44 ESV

Lord, let it be! Drench Your listeners with Your Spirit! While we are right in the middle of sharing the Scriptures, fall on every single person who hears. I want this so much. I want a fresh anointing, don’t you? I think our God is willing to give it. Let’s ask Him boldly! All we have to do is make absolutely certain that He gets every ounce of credit. Oh, what He’d be willing to do if we jealously guarded His glory and humbled ourselves as slaves of God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Ok, Girls. How about yours?

I love you so much.

    A verse in which has been so absolutely near and dear to be in the past few months has been John 10:10_ The thief comes only to steal,kill, and destroy; but I come that they may have life and have it to the full.

    The past months have been the absolutely most difficult this far in my short 20 years of life. I was injured by someone I loved in the most terrible of ways, yet God showed me His love through it all. And He also showed me that no matter what happened. I am His! He is holding me each and every moment and He has redeemed me. I am PURE, no matter what my past circumstances because even though my sins were as scarlet, they will be as white as snow. Even though they were red like crimson, they will be as wool.”Isaiah 1:18.

    He has redeemed me and He is continually healing me. I have been undergoing so much attack in the past months… And lately the nightmares and reliving things has been all the worse, but my Savior has come that I may have life to the full. And even though I dont understand all of these things and they hurt me so much; I know that one day He will wipe away every single tear. The victory is His.

For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. Philippians 1:19-21
