2009 - Hiding God's Word Verse # 7

I know that many of you, like me, committed to the LPM Scripture Memory Challenge at the beginning of the year. Some of you have come alongside and joined in on this challenge since then and have committed to memorize 2 verses (or passages) of Scripture each month for the entire year of 2009. 

For me, it has been an awesome blessing and just the accountability that I needed in my life. I cannot tell you how many times God has brought my memory verse(s) to mind at just the right time, in just the right situation, over these past 3 months. 

Can you believe that it is now time for Verse # 7 ?!?!?

This past weekend, Walt and I attended Discipleship 1 classes at our new church on Friday evening and from 9-3 on Sunday.  It was the most awesome 2 days of "equipping" that I can remember in my life as a Christian! I only wish that I could have been through classes like this as a young person! As a result of these classes, I had no trouble deciding what my memory verse would be for this week. 

Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, 
to be well pleasing to Him.
2 Corinthians 5:9 (NKJV)

What better day than today, my birthday, to make this my goal, my target, my AIM for my life  -  to be well pleasing to Him

I wanted to tell you that I've started writing a weekly verse on our chalkboard in the kitchen for Alex and I to learn. Our church gives us a weekly verse and I thought that could be a way to start hiding God's Word in my heart! I had told you that I wanted to start memorizing, so I just thought I would share. :)

I also stopped by to say, Happy Birthday!! I hope you have a fabulous day with family and friends.

Love ya!

Happy Happy Birthday to you, to you
Happy Happy Birthday to you, to you
Your good to grow, so count the candles and blow
Happy Happy Birthday to you, to you, to you...

That is our favorite Birthday song that Chica sings on Sprout TV, so we thought we would share it with a VERY SPECIAL YOU today.

Hoping your birthday is filled with lots of love, laughter, family and kisses from your sweet Emma.

Lots of love

Happy late birthday! Sorry I missed it! Thanks for the verse! Amazing the verses I can remember from long ago...just because I hid God's word in my heart!!

Birthdays are a celebration of life and I certainly celebrate you!

Verse #7! This year is scooting right along, isn't it? I am thoroughly enjoying memorizing my verses. This has been a very easy way of doing it.

Hope you've had a WONDERFUL DAY!


Denise K. said...

Happy Belated Birthday Mimi!!!:-) I hope your day was full of happiness and wonderful memories to treasure! You are such a lovely lady, I so wish I could know you in real life!!!

I also will remember this verse to commit to memory as well...I love the phrase you and Faith have used, "to hide God's Word in your heart." What a neat way to put the concept of 'memorizing' into a more meaningful and personal way of thinking.

Thank you for sharing your faith!

With love from Colorado,
Denise :-)
