Thy word is . . .

I found this photo over at Laurel Wreaths and it along with reading on someone else blog about scripture memory got me to thinking. The last couple of weeks I have been posting a new scripture each day with my post. I realized a couple of times that while I was typing and then editing my typo's that I began to memorize some of the verses I used that I did not already know.

All this got me to thinking and then today in Sunday School a couple of verses were mentioned and some of us were trying to remember the reference.

Do you ever have that problem where your thinking of a verse but don't know where it is. Or you read a passage and run across a verse and something in the back of your mind reminds you that you memeorized that verse a long time ago but haven't used it lately so it is somewhere just sitting around almost collecting dust waiting to be retrieved and used.

One of the goals that I meant to put on my 8 in '08 was to memorize more scripture and so to that end I have decided to try doing a verse a week.

Each day for the next week at the end of my post I'll have the verse of the week. I figure that with all the typo's that I usually make that I'll write each verse at least 14 times. Is that right? Once a day for 7 days and then again for typo's yes if my math is right that is at least 14 times. So just maybe I'll have a good start on memorizing some verses.

I would love to have you guys join me. This really isn't anything fancy (mainly because I don't know how to put up a fancy button or do that Mr. Linky thingy...this post will be under my dummies at blogging category) just leave me a comment and then type the verse in your blog at the end of your posts.

I hope everyone had a Blessed weekend and I hope you are looking forward to an awesome week. Here's our verse.

James 1:2-4 "Consider it pure joy, my brothers whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perserverance. Perseverence must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete not lacking anything."(NIV)

Memorizing Scripture texts weekly is a greatt idea.
Mine for this week is
"You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven" (Matthew 5:14-16, NRSV).
