HIding God's Word in My Heart...

Well, this is Scripture Memory Verse #18. As I went through and said my MV's yesterday, it occured to me how relevant each and every Scripture has been in my life this year. They have pertained to situations I'd face, even before I knew I'd face them. God knew what verse I would need at what time. And this time is no different.

First, my memory verse from the last 4 (yes 4 -- I kept this verse for a month) weeks has been Galatians 5:1 "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm then and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." And this one I will keep working on. I have not been as diligent over the last month to get this one memorized. So I will keep working on it.

My memory verse for the next two weeks:

Isaiah 43:2 "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze."

I can totally stand on the promises of Scripture. I love the promises in this verse.

Memorizing Scripture this year has been such a help to me. I am so thankful that God has helped me to memorize these passages.

There is a song that is coming to my heart as I pray and have my quiet time. It is Hillsong's "You are My Strength". I love this song. I have been singing it as praise to Abba.

My Father-in-law is still having a difficult time. So if you would still remember him, we would be so grateful.

God is very much moving in me during this season. He is prompting me to trust Him more, to follow Him even if circumstances would say different. I am not controlled by circumstances, but by my Heavenly Father. Through difficult times and deep waters He leads. Through valleys and hardships He is there.

He is my strength ~~ strength like no other ~~ strength like no other ~~ reaches to me.

Have a Blessed day,

    Wow you new scripture verse pertains to the place you are right now with your FIL and during the second to the last paragraph. Your verse is already showing you a way out.
