LPM Memory Verse #2

Just keepin' it real folks... This is me just out of bed at 5:45 AM! ;o)


Beth Moore has invited us to join her in memorizing/meditating on two Scriptures per month. Today is the second installment of this glorious exercise. More than 3,000 women have joined Beth in this endeavor at her LPM Blog. If you would like to sign up hop on over and check it out!

My Word to close out last year was PEACE. My Word to begin this year is TRUTH. I have been listening for Scriptures that speak truth to me...

On the first of January, I selected Psalm 15:1-2 "Lord, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill? Those who walk uprightly, And work righteousness, And speaks the truth in his heart." (NKJV)

Oh Glory, I typed that from memory! As I faced uncertain realities and difficult truths about myself... As the temptation to carry on as if nothing had happened, or to take revenge came upon me in the last 15 days... God's Word was working its way in my heart in mind. I would hear these words bouncing off the walls there... "IF you want to abide with God you must walk in your identity in Christ, do the work of righteousness as it has been administered to you, and you must speak the truth in your heart. Michelle, if you want to stay close to God as you need to do you must admit what your reality is and seek His truth to cover anything that hurts." Tell the truth in your heart.

This day I have chosen a very important Scripture as God has begun showing me a vision for the restoration of the relationship I have with my husband and what the future holds for us. Jeremiah 33:6 (AMP) "Behold, [in the future restored Jerusalem] I will lay upon it health and healing, and I will cure them and will reveal to them the abundance of peace, (prosperity, security, stability) and truth."

Thank you, Jesus, that Your mercies are new every morning and Your Word is true. I glory in you greatness and your love this day. You alone are God, You alone are worthy to be praised.

How About You? What Scripture has God placed in your heart today?

Good Morning! My 2nd verse is Psalm 117.

Praise the Lord ALL you nations; extol him all you peoples.
For great is His love toward us and the Lord's faithfulness endures forever. Praise the Lord.

Have a great day!
Love,
Patty
