Can you believe it?? Memory verse #3 is here!

Y'all...seriously...time is flying and every time I read a scripture that just grabs me I think "thats my next memory verse!"  I know I'm up to probably 10 favorites. ;)  However, I've chosen just one that I have read and known and seen time and time again, but it has new meaning for me right now. I meet with a beautiful group of ladies once a week and we talk about the challenges of being a mom and we pray for the pressing needs of our families every time we meet. It has become such a sweet time for us all. I can't imagine NOT doing this.  We have talked recently about the courage it takes to be a mom. We must be watchful. We must be wide-eyed and alert. A Proverbs 31 woman is no wimp.

So....my next memory verse surfaced this past week two different times and I thought...YES....this is the next verse for me. And...since I'm not one to memorize long verses (wink) I may break this one up into one month to make sure I really get it. I'm going to try though.

Grab your spirals girls....It's time to write down another Truth!

  5" Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 6:5-9

Ok...let me hear them!!!  I can't wait to see where your heart is! There is nothing like the power of His Word! I'm so very proud of y'all!  Don't forget to always go over the other verses.

Love y'all!

They all realized they were in a place of holy mystery, that God was at work among them. They were quietly worshipful- and then noisily grateful, calling out among themselves , "We have seen the hand of God at work today.! " Luke 7:16

I memorized that passage last year as part of my SSMT.

Listen, my beloved brothers, has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him? But you have dishonored the poor man. Are not the rich the ones who oppress you, and the ones who drag you into court? Are they not the ones who blaspheme the honorable name by which you were called?

James 2:5-7

Hey sweet siestas! My stepmom's funeral really put me off schedule - it's been hard to sit and concentrate. But today is my day to be in God's Word. Here's my verse - I just love it!

"Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him." Hebrews 11:6

Now that it's almost time for the 4th verse, let me FINALLY post my #3 verse:

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Romans 12:2

James 3:1-2 NIV

1 Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly. 2 We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check
