"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 4:13I 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 4:13Wow. 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.
