I can't believe that 2009 is already here, but I am excited about what God has planned for me and my family this year.
I had recently been thinking about starting a scripture memorization plan with the new year and then I read this post and decided to commit to do one year of scripture memorization with Beth Moore. I think that the accountability of doing it with other ladies will be an encouragement for me to stick with it for the entire year.
I've gotten my cute little spiral bound index cards and and I am ready to make my first entry for 2009 with these verses:
Proverbs 4:20-27 (The Message)
Dear friend, listen well to my words;
tune your ears to my voice.
Keep my message in plain view at all times.
Concentrate! Learn it by heart!
Those who discover these words live, really live;
body and soul, they're bursting with health.
Keep vigilant watch over your heart;
that's where life starts.
Don't talk out of both sides of your mouth;
avoid careless banter, white lies, and gossip.
Keep your eyes straight ahead;
ignore all sideshow distractions.
Watch your step,
and the road will stretch out smooth before you.
Look neither right nor left;
leave evil in the dust.
I have enjoyed getting to know so many of you this year and I look forward to getting to know you even better in the coming year.
My prayer is that God would richly bless each of you as you seek to know Him more this year.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
