Love it!!! Let me hear those scriptures!!

This is definitely the time of  year when I tend to slowly fade out of scripture memory. Why? Because spring has sprung, my kids are so busy with spring/summer sports, and I just get a little too lazy with the warmer weather. It is just a struggle for me to push past this busy time of year and then through the lazy days of summer.

However...Satan won't win this battle with me. I may pick out shorter scriptures, but I'm still memorizing! So there Satan. Take that!

I want to provide you the context of the single verse I chose so here goes...

Fran, Jackson TN
   "I thank my God every time I remember you.  In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy  because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now,  being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." Philipians 1:6

I want to be obedient in ALL things. I want to walk this walk with great humility and integrity and authenticity. Jesus...I thank you that you WILL see the good all the way through. No matter where I turn or go or fall of the WILL see it through.

Amen? Amen!!

Ok away!!!  I can't wait to read what you have chosen!

Hey y'all!!! I have mine to share: "But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us." 2 Cor 4:7.

Fran and siestas, thanks for holding me accountable! Sweet blessings to you all! Would appreciate prayers for my new business--still doing the photography but am listening to His direction in ministry. It's on my FB page--Noonday Collection. Thanks so much. Hugs!!

What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
James 2:14-17 (ESV)

I really need to find shorter verses too, in all the busy-ness, but I had to use this verse, after my last doctor appointment at Vanderbilt last week:

Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, and strength to your bones. Proverbs 3:7-8

My God is bigger than this!

"RUN from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts."

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

"But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him." Jeremiah 17:7 NIV

Happy Easter to all of you!

Isaiah 30.15 NET
For this is what the master, the Lord, the Holy One of Israel says:
"if you repented and patiently waited for me, you would be delivered; if you calmly trusted in me you would find strength, but you are unwilling."

That last line, "... but you are unwilling" is so convicting!
Lord, help me to always be willing to wait for You and trust You!

Thanks Fran, press on sister!

Ok, I actually chose this verse 3 weeks ago for the same reason that Fran did, it resounded throughout the week as my neighbors Cindy and Scott buried their sweet son Dylan. I never got it posted, so here goes!

Romans 8:28 NIV

"For I know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to His purpose"

It has been such a joy to memorize scripture with you ladies, God is so good!!

Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters! Let every person be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger. For human anger does not accomplish God's righteousness.
(James 1:19-20 NET)

Speaking directly to my heart these days as I struggle with busy-ness & discipline. This scripture hit home.

No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those tho have been trained by it. Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. Make level paths for your feet so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed. Hebrews 12:11-13 (NIV)

Robyn, Birmingham AL

Love you, Fran. You are such an encourager & a blessing!

Still catching up!

James 1:5-8
5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.

Psalm 91:5
You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day.

I blog so you can get a glimpse into my life as wife, mom of 3 boys, and someone who simply wants to bless others along the way. Have fun and be sweet :)
