Today is the 15th, the day I choose my 2nd scripture to memorize with the Beth Moore challenge. I didn't realize I am supposed to keep repeating the first one as I learn the new one. Do you realize that by the end of the year I am supposed to be able to repeat 24 verses in a row? Now that is a God-sized goal.
Beth has put a mini-tutorial on her blog of how to memorize scripture using the acrostic RENEW.I'll let her do the talking instead of paraphrasing it because she is so entertaining and motivating.
Anyway, I digress. My 2nd verse for 2009 is Psalm 130:7 "O Israel, hope in the LORD! For with the LORD there is steadfast love,and with him is great power to redeem." I chose that to remind myself that putting my hope in the person will lead to disappointment. It is the hope in God that will get me through. He is the steadfast one, not me or anyone else. He is the one with great power to redeem. Not me.
