Scripture Memorization

Once again I am participating in the SSM - Siesta Scripture Memorization - through the LPM blog (Beth Moore's Living Proof Ministries). We are to post our scriptures on the 1st and 15th of each month. We will be memorizing at least 24 verses over the course of the year.

Due to traveling and just being busy, I have not yet posted the first verse so I will post both of January's in this post.

The theme of my verses this year I feel will be primarily to do with Faith - taking God at his Word and believing what he has for me can be my reality. So my first two verses are:

"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see."
Hebrews 11:1 -NIV

"And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exsists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him."
Hebrews 11:6 - NIV

God began dealing with me about this last winter. I wrote a post about it here. More than anything, I want to please God, therefore, I must have faith in him and take he literally at his Word. God cannot lie, so. . . what he says is true and he will keep his promises. Now, it's my move.

Sherry - I am so glad you are participating! I am too. It was a great blessing for me in 2009 and I continued it on and now I'm glad for the discipline of posting the verses each month!

Speaking of that, I need a "button" like you have on your blog? How did you get that one? Can you share it?

Love your blog! Have a good weekend and good Lord's Day tomorrow!

I'm thankful God doesn't expect a truck load of faith from us--it can be as small as a mustard seed. Love the verses you chose.
