A Pattern

One area in my life that I am very weak in is Scripture Memorization. This year I have determined to memorize two verses/passages a month. That doesn't sound like much, but if I am successful then I will have 24 truths hidden in my heart at the end of the year. That's not shabby!

Anyhow, here are the verses I am working on so far:

"We demolish arguements and every pretension that sets itself
up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ." 2 Cor 10:5

"And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28

"Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." Psalm 73:25-26

"Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer." Psalm 19:14

There is a pattern with these verses, can you see it? They all have to do with thoughts, trust, and true desire. I have been struggling in these areas big time. Since I got pregnant I have been relying on me or the worlds wisdom way more than the Lords. And that's pretty ironic because this is the time when I need to rely on him more than ever before! My thoughts have been consumed with baby stuff, money, work, or me me me. I have worried worried worried. Ugh!!

But if I learn these verses deep in my soul, then I will know that the Lord has good plans for me. I can trust that though life may be hard, he always has his best for me. He alone is my portion. This is why I need to committ myself to these verses, because they speak truth to me when I have fed myself lies!!

Just wanted to share one area I am majorly struggling in...
