2013 Siesta Scripture Memory Team: Verse 7!

Hey, Everyone!

Praise God, He is still risen on Monday! I trust that your Resurrection Sunday was so full of Jesus. This was our second Easter as a church at Bayou City Fellowship and all of our services were filled to the brim, not only with people but also with hope. I love this time of year so much. I cannot think of anything in existence that exceeds the implications of the empty tomb: not the heavens above you, not the earth beneath your feet, not a single school or workplace, nor the blackest heart or most broken mind. No power nor principality can roll that stone back over the mouth of that tomb. Come one, come all. Come while there is still time. Come to Jesus.


I only have a few minutes on here today because Jackson and Annabeth are at my house, each playing within feet of me. (Right where I want them, needless to say.) Annabeth just put her baby doll in my lap and said, “Bibby, you need to change her diaper. She pottied in her pants.” So, there you go. As much as I’d like to linger on here with you today, obviously this is not the time. Diapers need changing around this place.


In the meantime, you and I have arrived at Verse 7! Our Scripture memory year is rolling like a freight train. We’re starting to flip those spirals now, Sisters! Don’t you grow weary. We have a lot ahead to celebrate! In case you like seasonal verses, these might be a few options this time around. (I’m grinning while writing these but if there’s anything we don’t want to be, Sister, it’s the Old Testament’s take on a  fool. Today or ever.)

Psalm 14:1 —  The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”


Proverbs 12:15 — The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man listens to advice.


Proverbs 29:11 — A fool gives full vent to his spirit, but a wise man quietly holds it back.


Then again, the New Testament gives a whole new twist to the idea of foolishness. This is the verse I’m selecting this time around.


Beth, Houston. But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong. 1 Corinthians 1:27 ESV

And that’s the only reason I have the privilege to serve you.

Merciful One, You turned the world upside down.


Let’s hear your 7th verses, Sisters!
