WOO-HOO!! We are half-way through our first year of memorizing scripture together! So far, all of us have 12 verses memorized (give or take a few) which means as a group we have memorized almost 200 verses! That, my friends, is awesome! I’m so excited and pray that you are encouraged by the work that you are putting into this!
Isaiah 55:10-11 says, “As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed of the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish with I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” All of the effort that you are putting into taking scripture into your heart is completely worth it. God is cultivating amazing, beautiful results in your life the same way water causes flowers to grow or bread fills our bellies! Inspiring for sure!
Because I’m a planner (ridiculously in advance sometimes), I’ve already been dreaming about what our Moxie Memorizers celebration for the completed year should be. I seriously cannot wait to hear everyone quoting scripture to each other. That’s going to be cool. Also, we will have some treats. Maybe a dance party should be in the mix. The Babler sisters are pretty good at planning dance parties. Hmmmm.

All I know is collectively will have have 400 verses flowing from our hearts and mouths. That is worth celebrating!
I’m going to start working Hebrews 4:14-16. Because I sometimes act too big for my britches and say I’m going to memorize more than I actually can, I’m just taking verse 14 for the next two weeks.
Hebrews 4:14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. (NIV)
Share your verses. This month as you read everyone’s posts, pray for each person by name that we will be strengthened, encouraged, and excited to keep running this race!
