Reading and Remembering

Saturday, January 22, 2011

So here is a little update on my two challenges: Bible in 90 Days and Mega Memory Month. 

Currently I am reading through I Samuel, but I should be done with it today.  I am trying to keep myself ahead by at least a day or two. One of the stories that really hit me this time around was Gideon.  I have heard the story of Gideon many a time, but reading it again something hit me. God is willing to encourage us and help us work through our fear. In I Samuel 7, God tells Gideon to go down to the Midinite camp so that he can overhear a conversation about a dream one of the Midianites had depicting Gideon as the victor over their camp.  I was touched that God was willing to encourage Gideon so that he could move forward in battle.

I am almost finished with memorizing Psalms 27.  I have about two more verses to go.  Luckily, the last two verses are short.  I am hoping that by the end of next week it will all be memorized!
