31 Days of "A Confident Heart" Day 6

from Microsoft Office
"Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days."  Psalm 90:14 (emphasis mine)
The memory verse of the week in the "A Confident Heart" study is Psalm 90:14.  We have  a new one each week that we are to TRY to memorize.  I'll have to say that I cannot memorize scripture.  I know, I know...........that is such a cop-out; but I really have a hard time with this.  Memorizing things is like "kryptonite" to me. I was a straight-A student in school, a whiz at math, can read and interpret as good as anybody..........but I just "can't" memorize scripture.

What's a girl to do??

I caught myself singing along with a song on the radio this morning.  I don't know the name of the song (sorry!), but it included the  Philippians 4:13 scripture in the lyrics.....and I was singing along like it was no big deal.
"I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength."  Philippians 4:13
I came to realize just this week that I actually CAN memorize scripture.  All I have to do is sing it!  I absolutely love music.  Any kind of music is okay by me.  I can memorize and sing repeatedly a song that I love (like any good girl can) without even having to try very hard.
"I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength."  Philippians 4:13
Wow.  That not only solidifies the truth that I CAN memorize scripture, but it preaches too!  I have been relying on my own strength to try and memorize scripture all of my life.  What was I thinking?  I can do ALL things through Christ, who gives me strength (including memorize scripture).

I am humbled today.  Thank you LORD that you are my God, and that you DO care about the small things like giving me strength and HOPE.  Praise be to YOU, LORD.
