LPM Memory Verse #3

I, or rather, God, has chosen my next memory verse for the Beth Moore challenge. First, let me give glory to God for this verse, that He does everything in perfect timing. I have spent the latter part of last week scouring the Bible for a verse to bonk me on the head. I prayed about which one would serve me as well as the first two, Hosea 10:12 and Psalm 130:7. Yesterday, He gave me the same verse twice in a row from two different sources within five minutes. The first time I read it, I thought it was cool. The second time I saw it He had my full attention. Not ahead of time, the way I like things, but at the right time. AMEN!

Like a lot of moms, I sometimes feel the daily grind of trying to teach my kids the right way is exhausting. How many years do I have to say the same thing over and over before I see results? Then, when I think we are on the right track, somebody does something that makes me wonder where I went wrong.

Here is the encouragement from God Himself that there is light at the end of the tunnel (and it's not a train!):

"They will not toil in vain or bear children doomed to misfortune;
for they will be a people blessed by the Lord,
they and their descendants with them."
Isaiah 65:23
I have to run now and remember that I am not toiling in vain...
Don't make me come up there!...
