The Word of God

Sunday, January 30, 2011

So my two challenges are continuing along.  I have been sick this week, and it has been hard to keep up.  There was one day that I didn't even read the Bible because I was just trying to stay afloat. I am still on target though for my reading.  I am actually enjoying the reading more this time around (I did the Bible in 90 days last summer).  Now that I am familiar with the stories I can anticipate them.  I am falling more and more in love with God's Word!

For Mega Memory Month I have been memorizing Psalms 27.  I am at the end!  Although I have to admit that the last two verses still need some work to solidify them in my mind.  So here goes...I am going to try to type it out now...

The Lord is my light and my salvation whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life of whom shall I be afraid?
When evil doers assail me to eat up my flesh, my adversaries and foes,
it is they that stumble and fall.
Though an army encamp against me, my hear will not fear.
Though war break out against me, yet will I be confident.
One thing I have asked of the Lord, that will I seek after,
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life
To gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and inquire in his temple.
For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble,
He will conceal me under the cover of his tent,
He will set me high upon a rock.
And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me,
And I will offer in his tent sacrifices with shouts of joy,
I will sing and make a melody to the Lord.
Hear me, O Lord, be gracious to me and answer me.
You have said to me, "Seek my face."
My heart says to you, "Your face, Lord, I do seek."
Hide not your face from me, turn not your servant away in anger,
O you who have been my help.
Cast me not off, forsake me not, the God of my salvation.
For my mother and father have forsaken me, but the Lord will take me in.
Teach me your way, O Lord, and lead me on a level path because of my enemies.
Give me not over to my adversaries, for false witnesses have risen againt me,
And they breathe out violence.
I will surely see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Wait on the Lord, be strong and let your heart take courage, wait on the Lord!

Psalms 27 (ESV)

I went back and looked...I have the basic idea, but there are a few words that are wrong or missing....I think I will spend another week perfecting it.

Bravo! I'm celebrating your terrific work--to take on two challenges in one month is mind-boggling, but you've done it. Those little blips will be easy to clear up. Daily review is what I'm banking on to get my passage, John 15, all straightened out.

It's been a delight to share this month with you, knowing you are over here committing yourself to God's Word so deeply.

Press on and may the Lord reward you for your dedication and heart.
