Siesta Scripture Memory Team - Verse #2

In 2009, I joined the Siesta Scripture Memory Team (SSMT) for a one year plan of scripture memorization with Beth Moore. God used His Word to speak to my heart in amazing ways that year!

I have been looking forward to the beginning of 2011 so that I could make another commitment to memorize 24 passages of God's Word over the next 12 months. I found in the year 2009 that the accountability of memorizing scripture with other ladies was such an encouragement.

So.....On January 1rst, I decided to join the Siesta Scripture Memory Team again this year. I've got my spiral bound index cards and and I am already on my second entry for 2011. 

The verse that I have chosen for my memory verse for January 15th is:

Ah, Sovereign Lord, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm, 
NOTHING is too hard for YOU.
Jeremiah 32:17 NIV
I listened to this interview yesterday on the LPM Blog and I could hardly believe that in just 1 short month (from Dec. 13 - Jan. 13) LPM has mailed out 8009 Spirals for their 2011 Scripture Memory plan! Isn't that incredible to think that over 8000 people have committed to memorize at least 2 verses of scripture per month over the next 12 months! LPM also has developed an "App" for those of you that are IPhone or IPad users! How awesome is that! So check it out here if you're interested.


And...don't feel like you can't participate because you don't have your cute little Siesta Scripture Memory Spiral. I don't have one of those, either...I am still just using my plain index cards I got from Walgreens. If I end up ordering a "Siesta Spiral", I will just transfer them over to the new "cute" one later.


So...come on, Siestas....won't you join in with me and over 8000 others and commit to hide God's Word in your heart this year? He promises that His Word will NEVER return void, but will accomplish what He sends it forth to do!

"MiMi", I didn't do well in 2009 when I tried this...

But I'm determined this time to do it! I too listened to the video and was amazed at how many women are participating in this! How awesome is that!!!

Determined this time to see it through!!

Em,
I LOVE this verse!!! And it is the one that I picked out for this time, but God had another idea. But I was so glad to see that this is the one you are doing.

Have a Blessed weekend friend,

Love that one. I believe I chose that one in 2009 when I did this and it is still one of my favorites.

Love you!

What a great verse to start 2011 with in Jeremiah 32:27. My favorite Scripture memory website is www.memverse.com I would love to see some of the 8000 Siesta memorizers join us there.
