I have to admit, I didn’t do great this 2nd half of the month, in my defense I did have 3 verses…eeehhhh….here goes nothing 🙂

Psalm 112:1-10 – Praise the Lord.  How joyful are those who fear the Lord and delight in obeying His commands.  Their children will be successful everywhere, an entire generation of godly people will be blessed.  They themselves will be wealthy and their good deeds will last forever.  A light shines in the darkness for the godly; they are generous, compassionate and righteous.  Good comes to those who lend money generously and conduct their business fairly.  Such people will not be overcome by evil; those who are righteous will be long remembered.  They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them.  They are confident and fearless and (can) able to face their foes triumphantly. They share freely and give generously to those in need, their good deeds will (be remembered) last forever.  They will have influence and honor.  The wicked (will see this) see them and (be) are infuriated.  They (will) grind their teeth in anger. They (will slink) go away, their (hopes) plans thwarted.

I  am so sure those last few verses are paraphrased & not concise…yep, went back & graded myself..I’ll continue to go over them this month!  Now for my new set of verses…these are taken from the message Sunday….if you weren’t there….watch it here!!  It was super! I plan on memorizing 2 Corinthians 6-15, but will start with this:

1 Corinthians 9:6 – Remember this – a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop.  But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop.

If you can’t say your previous months for memory, or are getting frustrated, take this month as a review…say them every day until they just come out without you having to think about them.  DO NOT ACCEPT THE LIE THAT YOU’RE JUST NOT GOOD AT MEMORIZING!!!!! Satan will fill your mind with every excuse possible to keep you from this:

Psalm 119:11 I have hidden your word in my heart,
that I might not sin against you.

Keep pushing forward….what an amazing tool we will be for God when in any situation or hardship we can encourage someone with a verse that just comes out from memory!!!
