1st and 15th Memory Scripture

Ms. Moore over at the LPM Blog is hosting 1st and 15th scripture memory . We are in the process of committing to memory 24 scriptures from January to December 2009. We are to memorize twice in each month the 1st and the 15th.

Mamma Beth did a video guide to help us with our memorization. Her guide lines went with the word RENEW

R read it
E examine it
N need it
E echo it
W wield it

This is based on Romans 12:2 NKJ "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

I think that I skipped part of the month of February, but I am back and the scripture for this part of March is one that I definitely need.

Psalm 51:10 NKJV

Create in me a clean heart, O God. And renew a steadfast spirit within me.

I have been spending a lot of time wallowing in the pit these past few weeks. I have let people have control of whom I talk to and what I post on FB and the blog, out of fear. Fear that something I say will be used against me. I am done with that. My soul trust in You; and in the shadow of His wings I will make my refuge. Until these calamities have passed by. He has delivered me from the power of darkness and conveyed me into the kingdom of the Son of His love. And in the wilderness where I saw how the Lord my God carried me, as a man carries his son, in all the way that I went until I came to this place.

I have not been wielding my sword, in fact I laid it down and let someone else use it against me.

I was reading in 2 Samuel this morning and found a scripture that just made me go I want that.
2 Samuel 23:10 He arose and attacked the Philistines until his hand was weary and his hand stuck to the sword.

I want my hand stuck to the sword, so that even when I weary, it can still be wielded by the Spirit of God.

You visited my blog. What a sweet thing for you to do. ( and I have thought about going to the dr for restless leg syndrome!)
Good luck on the scripture memory. It isn't the easiest thing to do, but one of the most rewarding!
