Siesta Scripture Memory Team 2015: Verse 10!


My name is Becky Jo and I’m a wannabe Southern Belle who married a Northern Hunting Man! So, now I reside in the chilly state of Michigan – quite a switch up for this Arizona girl!!!  I am madly in love with Jesus, my man, my kiddos and my grand babies. My hobby is coffee … always coffee!

The verse I’ve chosen is Psalm 118:5-6 MSG

Pushed to the wall, I called to God;
    from the wide open spaces, he answered.
God’s now at my side and I’m not afraid;
    who would dare lay a hand on me?
God’s my strong champion;
    I flick off my enemies like flies.
Far better to take refuge in God
    than trust in people.
I chose this verse because I have an old book mark from my grandma that says that this is the center of the Bible (vs.8), and I want to ALWAYS be at the center of His Will.  Far better to take refuge in God than trust in people, indeed.  AMEN!

    James 1:1-11 NKJV James, a bondservant of God and the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad: Greetings. My brethren count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. Let patience have it’s perfect work so that you may be perfect and complete lacking nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom let him ask of God who gives to all liberally with no reproach. But let him ask in faith with no doubting for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. Let not that man suppose he will receive anything from the Lord. He is a double minded man unstable in all his ways. Let the lowly brother glory in his exaltation. But the rich man in his humiliation. for as a flower of the field he will pass away. For no sooner has the sun risen with a burning heat than it withers the grass it’s flower falls and it’s beautiful appearance perishes. So the rich man also shall fade away in his pursuits.
