2009 Scripture Memory # 3

#3 Psalms 91:1

"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty."

This is the first verse of the entire chapter that I plan to memorize over the next months. Last year - when my soldier was at war in Iraq/Kuwait - this was the passage that we claimed and prayed for him over and over and over.

You would think that I would have it memorized from those nine months. And parts of it, I do. But I am committed to memorizing all of it ... who knew I would need it again so soon? I think I am still in shock. Or maybe I am just not ready. Or maybe I just do not want to go through it again from our side. I can't even imagine what it is like for him or our precious daughter-in-love.

So... my next 15 verses are already picked out...unless I double up on some or God gives me another one to go along with our journey.

Thank you in advance for your prayers and support along the way. Just thinking about it makes my heart hurt.

There just aren't any words.....

But there will be prayers and there is much love.

We will keep you all in our prayers.

My grandson's biological dad (he has not seen him in 10 years), is now on his 10th tour.

We will keep all our men and women in harms way in our prayers.

I so, so, so love Psalm 91--the entire chapter. It offers so much of what we need each and every day! You go, girl!!

Keep checking the CLASS website or email Karen Porter. I bet they will offer another seminar in our neck of the woods in the coming year or so.
