Siesta Scripture Memory Team 2015: Verse 4!


Hi Siestas! It is such a joy to be able to talk to you! My name is Sherry McClure and I just love this community so very much. I live in the suburbs of Houston, Texas, and I work here at Living Proof Ministries. One of my responsibilities right now at LPM is to help moderate your comments and it brings me such delight. Thank you for letting me be a part of your life in that way. All of you have so much to offer and I love getting to know you through your comments here! I also have the joy of tending to many of you through Facebook and I love y’all so incredibly much.

A little bit about me: I have been here at LPM for just over 11 years and have had the opportunity to do many things here! I started working at LPM when I had only been married for 2 years and we didn’t have children at the time. As I have grown and changed, my responsibilities at LPM have changed as well. I have been married for 13 years to David and we have two boys –Sam (9) and Jacob (7). We have a lot of fun together, but life with boys is loud, fast, and sometimes messy.   I also have the privilege of serving my home church in our women’s ministry. Life is full and fun! Some of the things that I enjoy most in this life are playing with my kids, being outside, shopping, cooking, and most of all, studying God’s word. His Word is the absolute thrill of my life. The Lord has recently breathed a new passion for His word into my soul and it is what I wake up for everyday…to see the Lord in His Word.   He is the love of my life.


1 Samuel 12:24 (ESV)

“Only fear the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart. For consider what great things he has done for you.”


This is one of the verses that the Lord has given me to focus on throughout the entire year. He broke it down for me like this:

Only fear the Lord: I am not to fear failure. I am not to fear what someone may think. I am not to fear the enemy. I am not to fear people I think are my enemies. I am not to fear things I imagine. I am not to fear man. My only fear should be of the Lord. There is safety in fearing Him.


Serve him faithfully: I am to be faithful in the ways that He has given me to serve. I am to work in excellence and do everything unto Him.


With all your heart: I am to give my all to the things that I am serving in. No settling for mediocrity. No half-accomplishing things. No “it’s fine.” No “this will do.” I am to give my whole heart.


Consider what great things He has done for you: I want to be living in a constant state of gratitude before the Lord. I want to be mindful that He rescued me from the dominion of darkness and transferred me to the kingdom of light (Colossians 1:13). He indeed has done great things for us!

So, my dear sisters, I pray that you will only fear the Lord. I pray that you will serve Him with all of your heart. I pray that you will remember the great things He has done for you. He is everything and I pray you experience Him through His word as it sinks into your souls!

I love you all so much,

    1.”Let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
    2. 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 is set down at the right hand of the thrown (throne) of God.”
    Hebrews 12.1,2.

    this was quoted from an ancient little book printed before publication dates, titled, ‘daily light on the daily path’, written there as it says, ‘in the very words of the scripture’.

    curiously I began looking to find a bible that would have this wording. then found a very old bible and compared it with more contemporary bibles.

    coming from the comparisons, one stood out with ‘let us run with endurance the race’ and another stood out with jesus ‘disregarding the shame’ rather than ‘despising’ it.

    the different versions paint a differing image with just a few placements of specific words.

    I rather prefer, the quote from that little old ancient book, which corresponds with that old bible I found the same wording in, Hebrews 12. 1,2. Authorized KJV.

    Baltimore, MD

    Dear friends, do not believe every spirit,
    but test the spirits to see
    whether they are from God,
    because many false prophets
    have gone out into the world.

    This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God:
    Every spirit that acknowledges that
    Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God,
    but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus
    is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist,
    which you have heard is coming and
    even now is already in the world.

    You, dear children, are from God
    and have overcome them,
    because the one who is in you
    is greater than the one who is in the world.
    They are from the world and therefore
    speak from the viewpoint of the world,
    and the world listens to them.
    We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us;
    but whoever is not from God does not listen to us.
    This is how we recognize
    the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.

    (1 John 4:1-6)

    Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God Himself were speaking through you.
    Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies.
    Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to Him forever and ever. Amen.
    1 Peter 4: 10-11 (NLT)
