Memory Scripture 1st and 15th

Beth Moore at Living Proof Ministries has challenged the siesta's to memorize new scripture on the 1st and 15th of each month. You can read about it here.

My memory scripture for the 15th is

Colossians 1:13 NKJV

He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love.

I love the word conveyed in this scripture and it drove me to add this scripture to my 15th memory scripture:

Deuteronomy 1:31 NKJV

and in the wilderness where you saw how the LORD your God carried you, as a man carries his son, in all the way that you went until you came to this place.

In Beth's scripture tutorial she said that we need to need the scripture that we are memorizing like we need our next breath. And in this season of my life I do need these scriptures, I need to know that He is carrying me, that where I am is not where I will be forever.

I did not post my memory scripture for the 1st, so I will do that now, and hopefully you will see what God has been telling me since my world fell apart on December 19th 2008.

Psalm 57:1 NKJV

Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me! For my soul trusts in You: And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge. Until these Calamities have passed by.

One of the coolest things that God has shown me in this scripture is that shadows are always moving and changing. So in order to make my refuge in the shadow of His wings, I have to keep moving with Him. This is a place of refuge but not a place of sitting still.

God has just been pouring into me for the past few weeks, and because of that; most times I am at peace about moving forward without Rusty as my spouse. I do have set backs and anger is always waiting just below the surface to jump out and grab me. I am making my refuge in the shadow of His wings, and He is carrying me as only He can. God is good to this weak weak woman. His mercies are new everyday and I am so grateful for that.

In Him,

Great verses! And I love the thought about moving with Him when you're under the shadow of His wing!
