Late but still Thankful

Friday, June 05, 2015  ::  

I apologize for the delay in posting this. Many of you know the last two weeks in May were less than convenient for the Haynes family.

A good thing is Esther graduated from high school!
The not so good thing is our plumbing broke.
I'll write more about both experiences soon. 

To be honest, all of it kind of took the wind out of my sails, which is ironic since the last moxie memorizers post I wrote was about not giving up. For the last two weeks of May I didn't think or care much about my little memory packet.

But I'm not stuck, thank you Jesus.

I finally finished the 2 Timothy 3 passage about not being a weak-willed woman. The list of ick still gives me trouble, but I've got the important parts of not letting it worm its way into my heart and home, so I'm moving on to a much happier passage.

Psalm 77:11-12
I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your wonders of old. I will ponder all your work, and meditate on your mighty deeds. 

Isn't that inspiring? There is something about this passage that puts my spirit at ease, builds my faith, and causes me to simply rest in the assurance of His faithfulness. I want to be a person who is full of thankfulness, and a sure and true way to build thanksgiving in my heart is to remember all He has done, is doing, and will do.

What are you memorizing/meditating on currently? Comment away, my friends. Thanks for being patient with my delay in posting this accountability avenue. I'm glad we are in this together.

Many blessings to you as your heart is filled with remembering!

Didn't see this till today. I have mislaid my memory packet, which has sadly been enough to delay me all month. But this week I've been focusing on Proverbs 3:3:

Let steadfast love and faithfulness never forsake you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.

When you look up synonyms of steadfast, you get loyal, faithful, committed, constant, determined, unwavering, true and many others. It's a theme I've been learning all year really, that love is a choice. So make it. :)

2 Samuel 22:32-37 stuck out to me recently, so I am going to focus on memorizing it. I am starting with 2 Samuel 22:32-33
"For who is God, but the Lord? Who is a rock, except our God? This God is my strong refuge and has made my way blameless."

I am looking forward to your posts about the major events in your family these last few weeks. So much going on!
I'll be working on Isaiah 48:10-11
"Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tried you in the furnace of affliction. For my own sake, for my own sake, I do it, for how should my name be profaned? My glory I will not give to another."

Hebrews 6:11-12
"And we desire each one of you to show the same earnestness to have the full assurance of hope until the end, so that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises."

Agh! Sometimes I think I did something already but it was only in my posting my verse! Here it is

Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest. Just as you cannot understand the path of the wind or the mystery of a tiny baby growing in its mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the activity of God, who does all things. (‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭11‬:‭4-5‬ NLT)

Hi Angel. Thank you very much for posting this update. My Scripture Memory journey has taken me primarily to Romans as of late.

For the promise to Abraham and his offspring that he would be heir of the world did not come through the law but through the righteousness of faith. For if it is the adherents of the law who are to be the heirs, faith is null and the promise is void. For the law brings wrath, but where there is no law there is no transgression (Romans 4:13-15).

I especially have enjoyed meditating on this verse because it stimulates both my head ("What exactly does 'where there is no law there is no transgression' mean?") and my heart ("How have I been living my life under the false assumption that God will grant favor to me simply because of my Christian background/heritage?").
