Good evening friends!
Guess what today is? It's January 15! You know what that means? It's time to start memorizing scripture #2 for the month (and the year)! If you have no idea what I'm talking about...you can read about it here first! We'd love to have some newbies join us on this amazing journey! It doesn't matter if you didn't get started on January 1. You can start right now and either (1) memorize 2 verses for this month to get completely "caught up", or (2) simply begin your scripture memorization journey this year on January 15! Simple as that! But...whatever you do...simply join us! You won't be disappointed!
In choosing my second verse for the month, I searched for something that would speak to God as being my all sufficiency, my provider...Jehovah Jireh. I feel so weak and so defeated sometimes, and I need to know God as Jehovah Jireh during those times especially. He's the One who provides not only financially (Praise God!), but He also provides emotionally, Spiritually, mentally, and physically. Sometimes...I need Him to provide peace...sometimes strength...sometimes comfort...sometimes resources. So, the verse I am choosing to memorize now is 2 Corinthians 12:9 from the NIV:
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.
So, let's hear it scripture memory verse buddies...post a comment with your first name, city and state, your chosen verse, and the translation you're using this time. I can't wait to hear what you're working on. If you're stuck or don't have a particular verse in mind to use, you are always more than welcome to join me in memorizing the one I've chosen. And...most importantly...don't forget to record your verse in your spiral (you have gotten it...haven't you?)!
Continue to work on verse 1. Last year, I would daily recite all verses I memorized up to that point until I knew that I knew them. I might then work on old verses every other day but continue to work on my newest verse each day. Once you've committed them to memory, you can even drive down the road simply saying them out loud. You'll be amazed how quickly you can amass a bunch of memorized scriptures!
Have a great weekend!
