Verse Six

I'll admit I haven't been working on memorizing my last Scripture as much lately. But I press on and read them all and meditate on them. It goes in waves like that throughout the year. This is a marathon, not a sprint. I've added so many Scriptures to my spiral as I've come across ones that are speaking to my current situations and things God is working on in me (pride, etc.). The one I've picked for this time is 1 Peter 5:8-9.

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.

I've told so many friends lately that I feel like last year was an emotional beating from life and this year seems to be a physical beating. I've had more illnesses than I can remember already this year, and my stomach problems are fired up again. And, of course, my ankle.

But, I'm remembering that, "he gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak." (Isaiah 40:29)

Let's see your Scriptures!!

I love how encouraging you are about scripture memory, Bible reading, and all the important things we tend to beat ourselves up about when we do not make the kind of progress that we want! It's like a breath of fresh air to hear the reminder that it is a marathon and not a sprint and just keep trying. Thank you, Jenn!

Here is my new verse:
"But he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.' Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me."
-2 Corinthians 12:9

I late in picking and sharing my current scripture. Just like you, I have meditated on the last couple, but haven't completely memorized.

I chose this one because I have been quick to speak in a way I do not desire, especially with the girls. I know that what comes out in words and actions is a direct reflection of the condition of my heart. Ouch! It hurts to hear that, but it is the truth.

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.
Psalm 19:14 (New International Version)
