I'm excited to join back in Memory Monday. And I'm breaking out of the mold of the Embrace the Word cards that I'd been doing... Change has not been an easy word for me. But God kept bringing up a passage of Scripture that has been been on my heart since February. This last month, *Pride* had me struggling with:
Lord, are you sure You want me to stop the memory cards at week 28?
Lord, I'm more than half way through the year of memory cards.
You know I don't like starting and quitting.
I like the routine. The familiar.
But this last month,the Lord has changed and confirmed so much in our family. Change in general is not something I enjoy; but, God has been at work doing some new things. And His new things are good. This morning He woke me up a little after four and my finally willing heart wrote down:
Shake me up and change me
Lord do whatever You need to re-arrange me
So today, I'm getting a fresh start with Memory Monday and learning a passage I felt the Lord impressing on my heart to pray for myself for this year:
I Corinthians 1:5-8
"that in everything you were enriched in Him, in all speech and all knowledge, even as the testimony concerning Christ was confirmed in you, so that you are not lacking in any gift, awaiting eagerly the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will also confirm you to the end, blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ."
Even new colors are blooming in the garden.
