2009 - Hiding God's Word Verse # 5

I am so glad that I decided to join in the LPM Scripture Memory Challenge at the beginning of this year. I cannot tell you how many times over the past two months that God has used my memory verses to encourage me or challenge me.

February seemed like it was such a short month but, believe it or not, it is already time for the FIFTH memory verse of the year.

The verse that I have chosen for the first half of this month is:


"Show me YOUR ways, O Lord, teach me YOUR paths; 
guide me in YOUR truth and teach me, for YOU are God my Savior, and my hope is in YOU all day long." Psalm 25:4-5 (NIV)



It's still not too late for you to jump in and join in memorizing scriptures for 2009. Just click over and read this post and join with us. I know that you'll be glad that you did!

Have a blessed week!

I love how you are putting your verses on index cards..such an organized idea. Mine are in a journal, but I think I'd be more inclined to study them on a card and refer to them more often.

Your verse choice is such an encouraging one. One I really need to focus on more each day.

Hey Mimi,
Miss seeing you!! This is totally unrelated to your post, but I just received an update on Facebook that Ray LaMontagne is going to be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this week....thought I'd let you know!! :) Thanks so much for 'introducing' me to him....he is now one of my & my hubby's favorite singers!!! And I saw on Jen's AI post that you're a big Heart fan -- me too!! I'm telling you, I think we have the exact same taste in music!! A third of my iTunes selections are Heart, Bonnie Raitt, Eric Clapton, and good ol' Ray!!
Hope you're doing well!! Have a great week!

I'm sure enjoying memorizing Scripture. It's nice to have the challenge from Beth & so great that so many are participating.
I found a little photo album at Walgreens recently on sale for about a dollar. It has exactly 24 little pockets for pictures. I'm memorizing Psalm 139 (24 verses) and I typed them all out and put them in there. I love having them all together in that little book.
I think seeing yours gave me the idea. ;)
I love your verse for this time too! It's one of my favorites.
Have a great day!
Love,
Valerie
