It's January 15th, ladies, and you all know what that means! :) It's time for VERSE #2 in our year long memory verse journey with Beth Moore and her Siesta Scripture Memory Team.
If you're just now catching up with me, you can read about this journey here.
Hope each of you are being faithful in your commitment to memorize your chosen verses!
"Whatever you ask for in prayer, believe" Mark 11:24
It couldn't be more simple, right? I fall short of this mark. every. single. time. For nearly two years the deepest desire of my heart hasn't changed. Every day I go to God with the same request. No spark, no enthusiasm anymore--just a redundant request. I read this verse recently on Lindsey's Blog, Pray Without Ceasing. She has been climbing an uphill emotional battle after losing premature twins. I've followed her blog for several months, and daily I am amazed by her eloquent, inspirational words. I'm copying the following excerpt right from her blog:
You will never learn faith in comfortable surroundings. God gives us His promises in a quiet hour, seals our covenants with great and gracious words, and then steps back, waiting to see how much we believe. He then allows the Tempter to come, and the ensuing test seems to contradict all that He has spoken. This is when faith wins its crown. This is the time to look up through the storm, and among the trembling, frightened sailors declare, "I have faith in God that it will happen just as he told me" (Acts 27:25). (Streams in the Desert)
It's time for me to stop letting my thoughts run loosely to God. It's time for me to communicate with my Maker and believe! Hope y'all have found some encouragment in this today :)

If y'all haven't seen this video, you probably should :)
I crack up. every. single. time.
Seriously, I watch this no less than 14.572 times per day.
On a side note, we were driving somewhere over the weekend and out of no where Alan yells "AW, STAY ON YOUR SIDE." It scared the living bejeezus out of me, then I laughed hysterically!
I've bout got the whole thing memorized, sad.
Peace and buhhhlessings,

It's time to get this new year started off right! I've read of many others participating in Beth Moore's Siesta Scripture Memory Team (SSMT) challenge for 2011, so I've decided to play along. Basically, on the 1st and 15th of every month you will choose a Bible verse to commit to memory--that leaves you memorizing 24 verses during 2011. Beth points out that 365 days is a looooonnnnng time, enough time for you to stumble into many valleys. Those valleys are inevitable, as are those mountain tops that God has laid out before us to stand upon! :) Join me in memorizing some of the promises of God, to help carry us through those valleys.
Each month I will post my scripture on the 1st and 15th, please leave me a comment with the scripture you are comitting to learn. Let's encourage each other on this journey!
Please visit Beth Moore's blog here to learn more information on her SSMT.
Without further adieu.....
"Forget about what's happened! Don't keep going over old history. Be alert! Be present! I'm about to do something brand new. It's bursting out! Don't you see it? There it is. I'm making a road in the desert and rivers in the badlands." Isaiah 43:18-19, The Message
This verse reminds me that the Author of my life hasn't set the pen down yet--He's still writing an AMAZING story. Sometimes we have to be still and look for it, but it's always there.
