But here is some good news: It is time to post your March 1st memory verses! I'm praying that you are not losing heart or determination. Hopefully, a rhythm of when you work on memorizing and reviewing is being established. Soak in His word! It is completely worth the effort and discipline.
Psalm 130:1-8 is what I'm going to be working on for awhile. I've been a little zealous in my memorizing commitment, so I'm just going to take the first two verses this time.
Psalm 130:1-2 Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord. O Lord, hear my voice. Let you ears be attentive to my cry for mercy. (NIV)
This Psalm was one of the most significant ones for me last summer during the Psalms of Ascent study that Julie facilitated. My heart rests in the fact that Jesus is attentive to my cry for mercy. As He hears my cries for help, I pray that my life will be extension of His mercy towards others. Many of you have heard me say that I'm not a merciful person. You will no longer hear me speak those words over myself. I've come to see it just isn't true. My heart aches for those who need Jesus' mercy and I long to be used to extend his mercy towards others.
I pray that the verses you are about to post reveal Jesus' sweet mercy towards you.
