Psalm 25:14-15 (NLT)

14 The Lord is a friend to those who fear him.
He teaches them his covenant.

15 My eyes are always on the Lord,
for he rescues me from the traps of my enemies.

I have always had a picture like a movie camera panning across a still ocean in total silence and in darkness when I read:

Genesis: (1) "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (2) The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters." (King James Revised Standard Version)

This passage is so visual to me and reminds me of how empty our lives are without God.

Hebrews 11: 1 ~ 3 {from the Good News Translation}

1. To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see. 2. It was by their faith that people of ancient times won God's approval. 3. It is by faith that we understand that the universe was created by God's word, so that what can be seen was made out of what cannot be seen. { gnt }

I am new to your team and to sparks, and I have been perusing your scripture memorization. My mother died of cancer in 2005, her walk helped to lead me to Christ, during the 2 1/2 years that she endured her trial with cancer her faith only became stronger, I was there as much as I could be living over 900 miles away also dealing with a severely depressed teenage daughter and working full time, married with another son and step-son. Being a Christian is what saved my sanity, my mother gave me a book that offered me that helped greatly. It helped not to worry about what ifs, just think about what is true. I always had trouble remembering exactly how the verse went but the hint you gave has finally offered me for the first time of getting it right every time. With having short term memory loss trying to memorize verses are even harder for me then they used to be. Ask me to find something in the bible that I can do, memorize a verse, very very difficult. Funny how each of us has strengths and how each of us has to work harder at different things but it makes us each unique and makes the body stronger.

I love this verse. I just started my journey to know Jesus and understand his words in the bible. I've been reading the KJV but realize I'm having difficulty understanding. The NIV made it sound so simple. Thank you for posting this, I really needed it.

Ephesians 3:17b-19 (NIV) And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

The above verse is one that has really ministered to me all my 36 years of walking with Jesus, one that I memorized early on when I first came to know Jesus as my Savior...Thanks for sharing...Thanks for the spark mail invite to this Thread, I will look forward to my visits..

Nancy, we can NEVER go wrong trusting God's word! What a blessed testimony that is!!

Here's the new verse. I haven't done a passage a week and for that I apologize, my friends. Still, I will press on rather than bail since I blew it on the timing.

Ephesians 3:17b-19 (NIV) And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Oh, Missy. I can't tell you how MUCH I've loved this promise for the past 34 years! Well, yes, I can. emoticon

34 years ago we were leaving Gov't housing. I had to clean the house, clean enough to pass a white-glove inspection. A friend took my preschool kids, and I looked around my 5 bedroom house and burst into tears because I had no idea where to start. God led me to call this same friend, who quoted this verse and explained that a 'sound mind' is an orderly mind. Then she prayed with me and I immediately had God's peace. God has created our minds to be orderly.

I cleaned all day, and when I was finished, my house passed inspection. I was able to do it because I claimed that promise, of a sound (orderly) mind so that I knew where to start cleaning and how to progress.

PRAISE THE LORD!

I have missed being here with you! It's a delight to be back, with all my work accomplished. Now I'm praying for more work! lol

I've managed to lose track of the dates, so I'll start from right now rather than wait even one more day to work on scripture memorization. The verse I've chosen for this week is one of success, something that is ours according to the word of God! Isn't it interesting that when Abraham's servant found success, it was counted as a kindness to his master? When we succeed, we are not the only ones who reap the benefits of a job well done, of blessings, of sweet success. Others in our lives are blessed, as well, be they employer, spouse, child, parent, sibling, friend, church, city or country. Do the spiritual work involved in success. Pray, as Abraham's servant did, for success, in faith, believing. Do the physical work required. Put in the fitness minutes, track your nutrition, drink your water, and stay active in your SparkTeams. Then SUCCEED!!

Genesis 24:12 (NIV) Then he prayed, "O LORD, God of my master Abraham, give me success today, and show kindness to my master Abraham.

Life here has gone a little nuts with my husband home for his two weeks off and Mardi Gras happening in full force, so I'm a bit behind. So let this next verse carry through February 10th as the schedule has been going, but I'll make it a short verse. Then we'll pick up with a new one on Monday the 11th.

Psalm 34:1 I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. (KJV)

My mouth far too often is filled with ugliness, criticism, judgments, retorts, passive aggression. I pray this verse will be kneaded through and through my being, filling me with praises unto our God instead of anything else.

Rom 8:38-39 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (NIV)

How did you do this week? Are you reviewing the previous week's verse so you don't forget it? Do you see the fruit of focusing on God's word blossoming in your life? I bet you do! God's word never returns void!!

January 21 - 27

Romans 8:39 Neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (New International Version)

Oh! I LOVE that verse. The mental imagine is great - no, it's GOD who's great! : ) But this verse assures us that no matter what is happening in our lives (to us) God does not let us be destroyed. Hallelujah!

Missy, you are so smart! I'm not doing great on memorization; but I write each verse on a piece of paper, and put it on my treadmill (which I'm trying to do every day) and I read it over and over again. I something's sticking. : )

How're y'all doing on this week's verse? Pray for me. I have two big jobs that have come up and I don't want to fall behind on my Sparking!

I used a little cheat quote to help me with this week's verse:

The night's really pretty. Let's appreciate exquisite pleasantries.

Whatever is:
T=True
N=Nobel
R=Right
P=Pure
L=Lovely
A=Admirable
E=Excellent
P=Praisworty

Amen, sis! Billy Graham's wife once said she wanted the following quote on her tombstone: Work in progress. Thank you for your patience.

Yes, what you say is so true. God has hit me in the head (has to get my attention, you know) about something in my life that needs correction. He is so loving and never gives up on us; I'm so thankful for that.

I saw a banner once that said something like, "I'm a work in progress" - we all are. Philippians 1:6, "...being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." Praise the Lord!

LOL What a good Abba Father we have!! He truly knows us through and through, our going out and our coming in, our standing up and our sitting down. He knows every single hair on our heads, so of course He knows just what bricks in our fortifications need to be repaired or replaced. And He loves us so much that He doesn't skimp. Ever.

I did pretty well with last weeks verse, but I am leaving it posted on my bathroom mirror because I think I may still need to review it. This week the Lord has laid it on my heart to memorize Psalm 37:7. It starts with "Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;" I have to admit the Lord knows me well, and has quite the sense of humor. I had to laugh when I looked up the verse to begin with.

How did you do on the first week's verse? Got it? Don't forget to review it so you don't lose it!

January 7 - 13

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. (NIV)

If you are memorizing a different verse, let us know what it is!

2 Corinthians 2:14 Thanks be to God who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads *everywhere* the fragrance of the knowledge of Him.

I'm still leaving out "everywhere." Gotta keep working it!!

emoticon I had to smile, Missy when you said you "revert to your native language, KJV." It's mine, too. I also have an Amplified New Testament and have liked what I've read in The Message.

Let's hear it for accountability! emoticon

The verse I posted is from the NIV, which is generally what I use for my daily reading. If I'm doing a word study, I revert to my native language, KJV. I love reading some of the newer translations, too, The Message, Amplified, God's Word Version and many others.

I have a hard time sticking with my good resolve, too. I find that the accountability of being here with you helps me a lot to maintain that resolve!

You are so right, Sandra. I use the New International Version (NIV), which I know some people don't like. Occasionally I'll pull out my old King James Version because the words are so familiar.

I start great (at a lot of things) but have trouble with sticking to things in the long haul. However, that said, I HAVE been on SparkPeople for a few years. Too bad my figure and eating don't show it. emoticon I keep plugging away.

All that to say, I aim to work on this, but ask one thing, since there are so many versions out there (and many are very good), would you please tell us which version you're using? I may or may not use that one, but I'm going to work on memorization. Some day our Bibles may be taken away from us; yes, here in the 'good ol' USA' and all we'll have is what we've memorized.
Thanks, Missy.

One of my goals for 2013 is to memorize scripture. I know much of the Bible but I fail miserably when recalling chapter and verse. Will you join me in memorizing a scripture a week throughout 2013? I will post the verse I've chosen each week. If you would like to choose another, please do, and let us know what you are memorizing. The truth sets us free, and in Christ we are free indeed!

January 1 - January 7

2Co 2:14 But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him.

My heart's desire is to carry the fragrance of Jesus to my world, causing all in my path to desire Him, as well.
