Scripture Memory…and some other thoughts..

“Moreover He said unto me, Son of man, all my words that I shall speak unto thee receive in thine heart and hear with thine ears.”
-Ezekiel 3:10

So…Chapter Four….That’s how far I’ve gotten in this online Biblical Studies program…About a chapter a week (I’m supposed to be doing a chapter a day- at this rate I might finish sometime in 2035.)

This, just like any other good habit, is slow-forming and I am sad to say that I haven’t been nearly as faithful as I had planned to be. Life is crazy…crazy busy and I am holding on by my fingernails, but something about this particular memory verse is burrowing deep, deep- under the fatigue and spiritual weariness to the thirsty soul crying out to learn more about my Father, my Lord, my Savior.  I don’t know why, but I felt compelled to share it with you, too.

Perhaps, you can decipher best what is saying to you, but to me it’s a promise that He will speak, and me AND my heart will hear.

A New Beginning….and some scripture memory

So I have gone and done it…enrolled myself in online biblical studies classes and will be working my towards a bachelor’s in biblical studies.  I am excited about it…and already learning lots (crazy huh, it’s just my first night!)

One important piece of this degree program is scripture memory…there is a new verse to memorize with each chapter.

Guess what? Ya’ll get to help!

I’ll be posting the new verse each time I start a chapter.  This helps in two ways…

1) I will be typing in the verse manually and will help me to commit it to memory

and

2) You will get to “see” my progress through the course.  This is an important role! I need one of you faithful readers to shout at me if I go more than a week without posting a new verse! (Help me to keep plugging away at my studies.)

Got it? You guys in?

Sweet! Let’s learn this one together!

“All scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction and for training in  righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.” – 2 Timothy 3:16-17
