Scripture Memory Verse 2

I have decided to memorize scripture with a lot of other ladies around the world through the Living Proof Ministry blog. This week, I picked Psalm 84 in the NIV. It's longer than she usually recommends, but I felt really led to memorize this chapter. I might decide to memorize a short verse and a Psalm off and on throughout the year. Not sure yet.

If you were at or listened to the message Beth Moore spoke at the Passion 2011 conference, you might remember her talking about the capacity of the mind and encouraging young people to memorize chapters, if not entire books, of the Bible. I can do this!

#1 "You shall not make [gods to share] with Me [My glory and your worship]; gods of silver or gods of gold you shall not make for yourselves." - Exodus 20:23, AMP

#2 "1 How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord Almighty. 2 My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. 3 Even the sparrow has found a home and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young - a place near your alter, Oh Lord Almighty, my King and my God. 4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you. (Selah) 5 Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. 6 As they pass through the Valley of Baka, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains cover it with pools. (Selah) 7 They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion." - Psalm 84:1-7, NIV

That's what I have memorized so far! I hope it's all right. hehe. It's not too late to join in! Memorizing the Bible isn't something that only the "super spiritual" do. The Word is powerful and transforming. I shall get off my soapbox, for I need to get out of here. I hope everyone is doing well!
