SSMT 2017: Verse 17!

fafcd3ab-ad08-4408-b0ff-1c958821244eHi! I am Sherry McClure and I am so happy to be memorizing Scripture with you!

The Psalms have been an anchor for me this year and I felt that it would be a good idea to memorize several verses from the Psalms to keep my mind focused on the Lord. My verses right now are Psalms 84:1-12:

“For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the Lord is a sun and shield, the Lord bestows favor and honor. No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly. O Lord, of hosts, blessed is the one who trusts in you.”

These verses help me remember that if I feel that something is being withheld from me, it is not good for me! What relief to know that the Lord doesn’t withhold anything good from those who are following him. These verses also make me want to trust Him more and have the blessing of freedom, knowing He is good, faithful, and for me. It makes me want to be in His presence more than anywhere else. He is good and His ways are good!

Don’t give up, my SSMT friends! You can do it!

    Hey Sherry, I’m gonna jump in and memorize that one right along with you. I needed to read your thoughts and hear His word through them this morning. Yesterday was a dumb.
    After a failed “non-date” coffee date I trudged into my job only to pass my ex’s wife and their 2 precious children on their way out. Man it was just insult to injury… bah it hurt. But to remember this morning that if and when it is good for me I will indeed be given the gift of a best friend to walk through life with. Thank you… and all this just cause you’re wanting to memorize Scripture. He’s good.
