    “My salvation and my honour depend on God, he is my mighty rock, my refuge.”
    Psalm 62:7 (NIV)

    As I look at my 24 verses written on index cards and taped to my mirror in my bathroom I am amazed and so grateful to The Lord for the journey of this past year and the verses that have become so meaningful to me! They have been my structure, my soundtrack, and my undergirding! Some of them are not as solidly engrained in my memory as I would like, but I will continue to work on them. Praise God for his Word that is living and active and sharper than a two-edged sword! Hallelujah indeed!!!

    I have been asking The Lord to show me how to love like He loves and the scriptures that were brought to mind each two weeks were a direct answer to that prayer of mine. He has showed me rich and lush pastures of how to love. Amazing God!!!

    The thing I loved the most was experiencing in such a real way one of the key promises I learned in the Believing God study: God’s word is alive and active in me!

    “Worthy art Thou, our Lord and our God to receive glory and honor and power, for Thou didst create all things and because of Thy will they existed and were created.”

    Rev. 4:11 NASB

    I’ve fallen in love with His Word afresh this past year by memorizing it consistently…and God has convicted my heart that He is asking me to keep up this blessed commitment of hiding a verse in my heart very two weeks until I go home.

    God used this year of Scripture memory to help me keep my focus on Him, instead of all that was going on in my life and the lives of my family. Truly a blessing!

    Judy Sommerville, Fairmont, MN

    Sing to God, sing praise to His name, extol Him who rides on the clouds – His name is the Lord – and rejoice before Him. Psalm 68:4 (NIV)

    This is the first time I have memorized scripture since 40 years ago at summer camp. I am TOTALLY amazed that I actually did it!
    I decided to focus mostly on verses that had to do with fear and God’s love for me — two things I struggle with. Oh boy – what a year I had and how I needed to fall back on those verses. My mom had heart problems late summer and I shared a verse with her over the phone when she was in the hospital. Then she had a serious stroke in September. I have prayed those verses for myself and said them to my mom when she was in the hospital. She has squeezed my hand in thanks. She cannot talk, but it’s obvious how God’s word speaks to her. I hope to continue to use these verses to encourage my mom and my dad.
    (See you in January!)

        Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
        Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

    What a wonderful community! I have appreciated the accountability and another way to claim victory in the morning. Thru a year of significant change and twins due in early Feb, I am grateful for the ‘conditioning’ and encouragement of this discipline. Thanks be to God and His many hands and feet serving here!

    Kimberly Megow says:

    Kim, Valdosta, GA

    Therefore, we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin. Hebrews 12:1-4, NJKV

    Kimberly, Watha, Revelation 3:20 NKJV
    Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

    Thank you for the opportunity to do this. Even though I have not kept up with my verses as well as I would like, it has encouraged me to be in the Word, and look to the Lord. Also, as I haven’t had a church this year, this has been like a women’s group for me. So encouraging to hear Beth’s encouragement in the Lord each time, and to have a sense of Christian fellowship. Thank you again!

    “And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.” Luke 1:47

    Like many other siestas, I’ve “run into” my memory verses in other places (devotions, friends, Bible studies, church sermons, etc) and it makes His Word come alive even more! The Lord has taught me this year through my circumstances that He was there all along, that He’s FAITHFUL! And I believe that memorizing these Scriptures has been a training for me in being faithful and committed to Him. I can’t believe I finished this time! Glory to Him!

    Britt Causey says:

    Britt, Burlington, NC. A man’s wisdom gives him patience, it is to his glory to overlook an offense. Proverbs 19:11 NIV. This is the FIRST time I have memorized scripture verses in my life- I am 34. It has been wonderful! At first I had no idea what verse to choose, so I usually memorized Beth’s, but now I am flooded with verses and have a hard time choosing which one. I found myself finding time to practice saying them during time that otherwise would have been wasted: driving or waiting in lines at stores. God bless you Beth and all the staff at Living Proof ministries for bringing this idea to me in a new way… a way that would help me to actually do it!
