Hiding It in My Heart!!!

Well, it is March 1, my daddy's 70th birthday - Happy Birthday Dad - and Scripture Memory Team verse day. If you want to know more about this, please go here.

So my verse last time was Hebrews 12:1-3:

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run, with perseverance, the race marked out for us. 2 Let us fix our eyes on Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith. Who for the joy sat before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider Him, who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart."

YAY!!! I love memorizing Scripture. I got all of this one, except the Therefore. I don't know why, but typing my MV sometimes throws me off. Crazy I know. anyway. . .

So I had said in an earlier post that Isaiah 61:10-11 would probably be my next MV, well the Lord really laid it on my heart to memorize it at that time, since I had Hebrews memorized, so I did.

"I delight greatly in the LORD, my soul rejoices in my God. For He has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. 11 For as the soil makes the sprout come up, and a garden causes seed to grow, so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise spring up before all the nations." (okay so I got most of that right, I had to go back and tweek it just a little, but this is one I will keep working on, until I have it clean!!)

Again, I heart Scripture. Hiding God's Word in my heart has been life changing to me, and I'm sure I'm not even completely aware of all the ways that it helps me, because I will literally start saying back all of my MV from the year when I'm driving in the car or around the house. Those are times when all kinds of thoughts could come in there, but instead of letting them, I am reciting Scripture and thinking about how God has spoke to me through that particular passage and so forth. It is so transforming.

So what is my MV for the next two weeks you ask?!! Well I will continue working on the Isaiah passage and I will be working on this one as well:

I Corinthians 13:12 (NIV) "Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known."

Part of me just totally digs that I am only seeing things from a poor reflection. I'm only seeing part. So what does that mean? It means there is more to see!!! Oh Hallelujah!! This is not all there is and the things that we do see here we are only seeing in part. How much hope does that give us? This is not all there is child. There is so much more. And what we see here we are only seeing in part. God has a plan, so what this passage really screams to me is TRUST!!!!! There is more to see and more to know, but we will only know in part here.

I so look forward to this part of my month, so I can see what God is laying on others' hearts concerning their MV.

Have a Blessed week,
