soul food

Memorizing bible verses has always been a task on my list for as long as I can remember, I just don't do it as often as I wish I did. I have verses posted all of the place at work so I can try to do it by continualy looking at them, but what actually happens is I just stop noticing them because they become a part of my every day scene.

What I think I need is a little bit of discipline and some accountability! So I've asked B to join in with me on memorizing a different verse each week and maybe even take turns each week deciding on the verse...

The thing is God's word is so powerful because it's speaking truth into the world. How many times do we find ourselves in a situation where we are talking to someone and they need a little encouragement (or a lot!) and we are at a loss for words... And sometimes that is good cause our mouths can get us in trouble so easily!! But there are times when we share empty words or even words that could lead them astray. God's word is loving and good, always. Because His word is Love. And it's Truth.

I also want to be able to defend my faith at any time. 1 Peter 3:15 tells us to always be ready {But sanctify the Lord God[a] in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear} And although MANY people try, you can not disprove the bible. The word of God is truth and timeless.

So I also want to post my God's truth on my blogs for anyone to read and in the mean time I'll be memorizing that verse. Feel free to join us!!! If you have any suggestions for verses please let me know!!
