A Resolution Made Easier… Joy Dare #22-26

06 Jan

Cowboy on his backhoe.

One of my New Year’s resolutions (after years of not making any) is to memorize Scripture weekly and systematically.  Once we become adults, it is easy to fall off the memorization train and having the entire Bible at the touch of a button on our smart phones makes it easier to avoid the discipline…but…

I want to hide His word in my heart not my phone. 

Then, as if in answer to the private list of changes I need and want to make this year, Ann Voskamp (from a challenge today to memorize Romans 1, 8, and 12 together this year.  She gave an easy downloadable printout to do so with just 2-3 verses a week. (Click here for your very own!)

Will you join us for the challenge?  Send me a message or comment here or on my facebook page if you will.  We can encourage one another…

to hide Him deeply and well.  This is the way He digs out the weeds and dramatically overhauls the very core of who we are, what we believe, and how we behave.

Because as a man thinks in his heart… so is he. 

This is the first of my counted blessings this day!

#22- A scripture memory help for Romans 1, 8, and 12 from my favorite writer who always points me back to The Best Writer.

#23- TenderHeart’s sweet conversation over the phone with me today, and the crisis of breathing and feelings which was averted just in time.  He is called TenderHeart for a reason.

#24- An unexpected visit from Mama and Papa which also gave me the chance to go outside and cut Cowboy’s hair for him.

#25- A productive couple of hours of work in my business while the littles slept.  (This is what I do.)

#26- A couple of hours to snuggle and watch a movie with Cowboy tonight, his idea.  A rare treat indeed.

Those new mercies were a promise kept today, Lord, as Your promises

always. are.

Thank You.
