Lately, Jesus has been reminding me of salvation deep in my guts. He speaks directly, kindly, lovingly, and with authority about what He has done and is doing in my life.

I gave my heart to Him when I was six, wandered many years (those details are for another post), and then truly submitted myself to His rule in my life in college (more than a few years ago).

With Thanksgiving approaching, it is only natural to deepen my thoughts of that for which I am thankful.

I hope you want to keep reading and will click on over to Beautifully Rooted

It is enjoyable to write posts about how much I love Jesus for a whole new audience, but I definitely want to share my thoughts with all of you! Thanks for checking it out and sharing your comment love. 

Moxie Memorizers

I don't have any fancy words about memorizing scripture for you today. My encouragement for you is to stick with it. My hope is that you are growing in this discipline and that you don't need this blog post to remind you to do business.

To keep saying the same thing over and over seems silly, however, memorizing new things is still very challenging for me at this point. I mostly have Colossians 2:6-7 down if I look at the first couple of words. I'm going to keep working on it. I pretend it is good therapy for my brain to review my old verses and work to learn new ones.

Even though it is humbling for me, I'm not going to add a new one just yet. Thanks for continuing to pray for my brain as it heals and my heart as I wait.

I can't wait to read what you are learning! The way you faithfully add His word to your heart and mind encourages me so very much.

Please post what you are memorizing so we can all celebrate with you!
