I fully believe that memorizing scripture is essential to fighting the battles in the mind.
But let me just be honest here.....
1) Right now, I know some scripture by heart exactly where it is and word for word. I know many more things are are in scripture more by reference and definitely NOT verbatim.....and there there is the massive amount of scripture that I can say I don't know at all but that "might" be in there somewhere.
2) I need to know more of the scripture by heart-- verbatim.
3) It's hard to memorize scripture!!!!!
SO - knowing all of this I'm determined to do a better job of it. And what better way to learn it myself than to teach it to my kids?
Starting TODAY -- at meal times we are going to work on some scripture.....our first is to be this:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.
Now, wonder how long it will take us all to learn it? I also plan on making a chart so we can all see and get excited about our progress.....
Well - it's time for lunch and then we are heading to the pool probably for the last time since it closes this weekend. Considering that we've only gone a few times all summer, that membership was NOT a good idea.....live and learn I guess....but that was a hard $150 lesson!!!!!
Have a great Thursday everyone!
in HIM -
