What a way to start the new year...
Not only IN THE WORD - but a new start in MEMORIZING THE WORD.
I have memorized many scriptures in my life time. Some verses, some passages, some chapters and some books. However, I have been very slack in this area of my life lately. I am excited to get back on track. Sometimes all we need is a gentle nudge. A little reminder. An inspired challenge.
That is what is happening at the LPM Blog. There are over 2600 others who are joining in this challenge. If you have not made the decision to join - I want to encourage - remind - challenge you to do so. Two verses a month. WE CAN DO THIS.
I had a verse picked out - to begin my year - until I read Beth's Blog. I decided to go with the one that she shared.
Isaiah 33:6 (ESV)
"and he will be the stability of your times, abundance of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge; the fear of the LORD is Zion’s treasure."
Now, read this again in the Amplified version - "And there shall be stability in your times, an abundance of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge; the reverent fear and worship of the Lord is your treasure and His."
In our days of unstability - how comforting to be reminded that He is our stability. And then, oh may the REVERENT fear and worship of our Lord be our TREASURE. And then think about that last part of the Amplified verse. Our reverent fear and worship of the Lord is HIS TREASURE.
That is the start of my new year.
And for another reminder - The daily Bible reading is posted on the side-bar. I began this morning in Psalm 1 and 2. I hope you are joining me there too. READING AND MEMORIZING.
