This past year, I started a year long attempt at memorizing specific scriptures with other women from around the world. We all joined together online at Living Proof Ministries..aka Beth Moore's website.
It was a joyful journey of dependence on the Holy Spirit to help me remember "in application" and assorted sticky notes visually!
On December 15, 2015 we were to give our 24th verse and to share abit of our journey. I have included my last post on the LPM blog from SSMT 2015 below.
Psalm 20:7 has been a familiar comfort over the years and it seemed fitting to be the last verse for my year long endeavor. This week-end, the LPM siesta's gathered together to hear Beth speak, celebrate their milestones, and rejoice in a blessed task accomplished.
I was not able to attend the conference, but I rejoiced in the gathering of all the ladies who were present to celebrate. I am sure it was amazing to hear the laughter and grateful praise of a group of women who love Jesus.
The paragraph below was what I wrote on Beth's blog.
I find it easy to be reminded of His Word, but more difficult to memorize it.
I rejoice in the fact that as I have read and considered His Word over the years, He has always been faithful to remind me just like He said He would. Like everything else in my relationship with Christ...as I practice, He teaches me.
John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
My online entry at Beth's blog...
Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God. Psalm 20:7 KJV
The study of the Word always gives me a serious push towards less of me and more of Him. I have suffered life without the gift of God, Living Water, and I never want to be without it again.(John 4:10)
In the natural all things shrivel without water. But Living Water shrivels the carnality of man and refreshes, builds, and strengthens the spirit in man.
I do not know whether I will be able to attend the January gathering but it has been a blessing to gather here on these entries. I was always amazed as I read the entries posted during the same time period as my own. More often than not, the word written before and after my own entry would be a comfort or a word spoken in due season for me.
Beth Moore, thank you for providing this learning platform for your sisters. Sisters (Siesta's) thank you for the fellowship of Gods word shared in your own journey. It blessed my journey.
We are lifetime learners of the grace of God. As I typed my entry just now, I saw my daily/ year planner in front of me on my desk.
I am going to transfer my scriptures from this memorization time to a single page in my 2016 planner. Each of these scriptures were quickened to my understanding as a word in due season throughout this past year.
His Word sews up the broken places and knits me anew. And like a favorite sweater, I want to wrap up in the comfort and beautiful tapestry of His Word given, as I continue to pursue my relationship with Him.
A blessed new year to all.
May the LORD bless us, keep us, may His face shine upon us, be gracious unto us, lift up his countenance upon us, and give us peace. In Jesus name. Amen.
