I can't believe this is my third round of the Siesta Scripture Memory team especially since Beth only does this every other year. Time does fly. I love doing this. I'm not sure if it's just the twice monthly reminders or the fact that I do it with friends that encourages me to keep going but I end up memorizing so much more than the off years. In the last 6 months, Lucy has memorized more than I have. It's really sad when a two year old beats you. But I have high hopes for this year!
But while I did a good job memorizing last time, I did a bad job document so I make no promises that I'll share them all with you, but I will try. Here's my first:
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.
I really want to work on being consistent with my prayer life this year and this is my motivational verse for that. Sometimes we search high and low for what "God's will" is and I understand that but it doesn't always need to be that complicated - rejoice, pray and give thanks - that is God's will!
And I would encourage any of you that want to work on memorizing more scripture to check out this fun way. Or just scroll through the verses other choose, that always encourages me.
