My Verses for 2009 Part 2

Here are the final verses that I memorized this year. The last few are a bit sketchy but I have next year to continue learning them, so I am not giving up.

Hebrews 13: 5 & 6

Keep you life free from the love and money and be content with what you have, for he has said "I will never leave you nor forsake you". So we can confidently say: "The Lord is my helper, I will not fear, what can man do to me?" (Again this verse speaks to not trusting things of this world, but the Lord. He is my helper! I do not need to fear what man can do to the body!)

Psalms 37: 7 & 8

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes. Refrain from anger, turn from wrath, do not fret it leads only to evil. (I have to be honest with you here. This verse came about because of the election last year, and what I believe this administration is about. It also deals with the hearts of man without God. I am not to let that effect me or my witness though. I need to keep my eyes on Him, knowing this is all part of His plan.)

Isaiah 46: 3 & 4

Listen to me, O house of Jacob, all who remain of the house of Israel, you whom I have upheld since you were conceived, and have carried since your birth, even to you old age and gray hairs, I AM he, I am he who will sustain you, I have made you and I will carry you, I will sustain you and I will rescue you. (Do not fear the future, do not worry about retirement. God is over all and he will take care of you. That is what these verses say to me. Great comfort!)

I Peter 5: 6 & 7

Humble yourselves, therefore under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. (Do you see that he may lift you up? It's not us! It's God! We can cast all our cares on him because he cares for us! What comfort!)

Psalms 5:3

In the morning O LORD, you hear my voice. In the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation. (This was the beginning of my summer verses. Thought I would go easy on myself and I'm glad I did, because I didn't do such a good job staying on track. This verse means alot to me because in the morning is when I met with God for my quiet time. I can give Him my day and know that he hears me.)

Psalm 27:14

Wait for the LORD, be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD. (Do you see a theme here? Do you think I have an issue with waiting? That would be a BIG yes!!!! This verse helps remind me TO WAIT on Him!)

Psalm 40:1

I wait patiently for the Lord, he turned to me and heard my cry. (Oh don't you just love that! He turns to me and hears my cry!!! Oh how I love that!!)

Ecclesiastes 5:2

Be not rash with your mouth, nor let your heart be hasty to utter a word before God, for God is in heaven and you are on earth, so let your words be few. (I think that doesn't need alot of explanation for why I picked it, or why God gave it to me. I'll let you form your own idea ; - )

Well there you have them. 28 verses total. That's not bad! Even though I didn't do so good at the end, I still memorized over 24 verses. And God used every one to conform me more this His image! So it's all good!!!!

Some marvelous verses, Kim.

Hm - waiting is a big issue for me too. May I be more patient in 2010 :)

Psalms 37:7 & 8

You are to be commended! A nice long list of verses are hidden in your heart. GOOD job.

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes. Refrain from anger, turn from wrath, do not fret it leads only to evil.

God gave me this verse just about the time of last year's election too. Oh my... how I treasure its words. You know, wrath (angry feelings) are a huge waste. I'm learning to drop that kind of negativity and press forward anyway. :~D
