One of my goals for 2013 is to commit 50 Bible verses to memory. I probably know 10 verses by heart, some better than others. That’s not terrible, but I have been a Christian for over 10 years. In the last three years, God has significantly increased my appetite for His Word, and I am so grateful. Rarely does a day go by that I don’t at least read a Psalm or use my concordance to find some much needed encouragement. But intentionally memorize verses? Shamefully, not so much. That changes this year.

Based on this basic list and a modified version of this method for memorizing scriptures, I should be able to learn one new verse a week. I plan to use this list if there is ever a week when I don’t feel God has gifted me with a verse to learn. But my prayer is that as I study the word, certain scriptures will stand out as Ebenezers and I will commit them to memory. I’ll keep a running list as I go.

{January 1-6} Hebrews 1:3-4 I chose this verse because last year I halfheartedly tried to memorize it, but I didn’t put in the effort. I didn’t memorize the whole thing and I have forgotten most of what I did memorize.

Word-Filled Wednesday: Isaiah

I am sorry I’ve been such a bad blogger. The Spain update is same as always: we are plugging away at homework, scheduling planning meetings with our church and preparing to speak at churches beginning in January.

In honor of my study of Isaiah with Bible Study Fellowship, I did a word-filled Wednesday image of one of my favorite sections, Isaiah 1:16-17. Nothing fancy in terms of graphic design, but I hope you like it. Please feel free to head over to my Flickr page and download the large size for your desktop.

Word Filled Wednesday #2

By Wednesday, August 11, 2010 2 0

I’ve been listening to the Mars Hill Church series on Song of Solomon, Peasant Princess, on my commute to work. I have it on CD and I was getting tired of the radio, so I popped it in one day and said a quick prayer to the Lord to use it again to make me a better wife.

Always an interesting prayer to pray, no?

Proverbs 31

When Chris and I watched the series together, it was revolutionary for our marriage. I wholeheartedly recommend it, whether you’re engaged, newly-married, or… seasoned. I recommend it whether you’re happily married, roommates, or miserable.

Just let go of all your expectations, except those you have about God’s incredible ability to transform those He loves.

Please feel free to grab any and all graphics I put on this blog. Stupidly, I don’t have a desktop size version of the one above, but I will in the future.
