I can't believe I'm already on my third verse! Time is definitely flying by but not without me having ample time to hide these Truths in my heart. I don't know about you but I've got the first two verses down pretty good. Let's see....

"You crown the year with a bountiful harvest; even the hard pathways overflow with abundance."
Psalm 65:11

"For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide, we might have hope."
Romans 15:4

I just typed those from memory so don't check my punctuation or anything. And I have no idea what translation they're in but at least I got 'em! Here's my third verse-

I stole it from Amy's post about Libbi's baby dedication. This just happens to be one of Libbi's life verses that they chose for her and I think it's absolutely beautiful. Don't you? Our God is so tender to us despite our failings and I need every reminder I can get.

I also chose it because I loved the part about God calming all my fears. Bear's headed to India with four other guys from our church on February 21. He'll be there for 12 days and we've never been apart that long. It will be an intense spiritual time preparing for his departure as well as while he's overseas. Please keep our little family in your prayers! This verse will be a great one for me to memorize prior to his leaving. I can see myself reciting it at night here at the house when I'm by myself. Such a comfort.

Can you type your first two verses from memory? What's your new verse? Maybe I'll steal it for my fourth one coming up....

"For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs." Zephaniah 3:17, NLT

Here we go from memory...

"Don't worry about anything. Instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all he has done."
Philippians 4:6

"I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength."
Philippians 4:13

You were brave and picked really long ones. Haha! :)

well, you already know i love that verse!! ;0)
i don't think you technically "stole" it, you know, since it came from the Bible and all - ha! ;)

my verse for this week is psalm 24:1
"The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him."

i guess i am all about the psalms so far ;)

Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

And my newest one, I think I have almost got...Ah, sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is to hard for you. Jeremiah 32:17
