Week Thirteen – 2023 DFMD Scripture Meditation Challenge

July 2, 2023
Scripture Meditation & Memory at DFMD 2023

Happy July! Summer is flying by, isn’t it? Well, I do hope you are getting to enjoy some beautiful sunshine and lovely warmth, along with all things summer. We’ve especially been enjoying seeing the lightening bugs light up our yard each evening. Oh, and taking blog photos at this time of year has been lovely since so many gorgeous blooms are all over the city.

Week 13 Verse

I’m keeping this short today and simply sharing my scripture without much explanation. I’ve mulled over this verse many times through the years, I’m certain. But this week it jumped off the page and begged to be considered more deeply. So I’m not really certain why I’m meditating on Hebrews 11:6, except that it is a powerful truth that the Spirit has led me to prayerfully memorize.

Week 13 Verse

I do know I was compelled this morning to pray through this scripture and to commit to “seek Him” more steadfastly and passionately. And I also am overwhelmed by the fact that He rewards those who do.

    Psalm 29:2

    Matthew 10:40

  3. Linda from Georgia
    Psalm 91:2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and fortress: my God, on Him will I trust.

    I need to say this out loud every day so that I hear it and the enemy hears it too!

  4. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end….That every man may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil – this is the gift of God.
    Ecclesiastes 3: 11, 13 NIV

    I’ve always been fascinated by v11. Verse 13 is a prayer for family members stressed out or at crossroads and needing new direction.

  5. Good morning sweet ladies,

    But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or the height of his stature, because I have rejected him.” For the Lord sees not as man sees. Man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.
    1 Samuel 16:7

  6. Hi There Kay and Ladies , Hope all your Sunday’s are a happy one . My Scripture today is : 14 Don’t let your hearts be troubled . Trust in God , and trust also in me . 2 There is more than enough room in my Fathers home.
    John 14.2 (NLT)

  7. Hello,

    I’m continuing with Psalm 34 and up to verse 19:

    The righteousness person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to the rescue each time.

    Thank you to those who have been praying for my husband and I. The neurologist has added a new medication to hopefully help with his demands symptoms. Beth

    1. Fingers crossed & prayers said that the new medication helps. I’ll be keeping you & your husband in my prayers Beth. 🙏💕🙏

  8. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-22 (NIV)
    Be joyful always;pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not put out the Spirit’s fire; do not treat prophecies with contempt. Test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil.
    I was just going to memorize verses 16-18, but the words, “hold on to the good” kept calling me. I love this group. I love the challenge of memorizing scripture. Thankful for both.❤️

  9. This strengthened and sustained me throughout my cancer journey and continues to do so.
    Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
    Y’all have a blessed day!

  10. Psalm 141:3 Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips.

    This verse is perfect as I work on eliminating gossip from my life.

  11. Thou wilt make known to me the path of life; In Thy presence is fulness of joy; In Thy right hand there are pleasures forever. Psalms 16:11 NASB

  12. “ I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go.
    I will counsel you with my eye upon you.”
    Psalm 32:8

  13. Philippians 1:3
    I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.
    I miss you so much my lovely sister, but I thank my Lord you were such a big part of my life. Thank you for being my true soul-sister, and I will keep you in my heart forever ♥

    1. Helena .. what a perfect scripture to focus on. I’ve been keeping you & your sister in my prayers. 🙏💕🙏

      1. Thank you ever so much, Frani! Tomorrow is my birthday and we always celebrated together. It’s going to be tough but I will focus on the gift of having her in my life until we’re reunited again.

        1. Happy Birthday Helena 🎂🎊🎂 I know it must be a difficult one. I’m thinking of you & sending you lots of love, hugs & prayers.

          1. Aww, you are so sweet to remember and thank you so very much for the hugs and prayers, as it means so much to me today, Frani ❤🤍💙 God truly sends us angels when we need them most, so thank you! I hope you enjoy the 4th 🇺🇲

            1. Hi Helena .. you know when my sister passed I was blessed with an angel who helped me so I’m truly grateful and honored to be one of yours. I’m keeping you sweet gal and your sister in my daily prayers. And sending you love and some more hugs just in case you need one! 💕🤗🙏

              1. You truly are incredibly kind and I am honored to have you as one of my sweet angels, Frani 😇 Grief such as this takes it’s toll and I know the prayers and hugs are all that keep me going right now. Thank you ever so much!!!!!🤗

  14. I had planned on a different verse today but I’ll save it for another time since I really like yours Kay.
    “And without faith it is impossible to please him for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”
    Hebrews 11:6

  15. Phillipians 4:6-7 (NIV)

    Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

  16. 1 Peter 2:17. Honor all people, love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the king. This verse is good advice for living life, I want it to become a part of my thinking process in all situations.

  17. Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.

  18. I would like to spend less time on my phone and more time in silence:
    1Kings 19:11b-12 NIV
    Now there was a great wind, so strong that it was splitting mountains and breaking rocks in pieces before the Lord,
    but the Lord was not in the wind;
    and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake,
    and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire;
    and after the fire a sound of sheer silence.

  19. I chose this verse because I want to be braver.

    2 Timothy 1:7. “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power and of love, and of a sound mind.”

  20. “And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to Him must believe that God exists and that He rewards those who sincerely seek Him.” Hee 11:6 NLT

  21. Hello Ladies,

    Again, I have chosen one of the scriptures from Kay’s, Blessed for My Day, this past week.
    1 Corinthians 15:10 (MEV)

    But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me.

  22. Revelation 19:16 NKJV
    And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

  23. But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,
    1 Peter 3:15. NIV

  24. John 15:4. NIV Remain in me, as I also remain in you.

    I need to remember that apart from him I can do nothing, in him I can do anything he calls me to do.

  25. 1 John 4:4. You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one that is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.

  26. 1 Chronicles 16:29
    Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His name; bring an offering and come before Him. Worship the LORD in the splendor of His holiness

    So many people,even Christians, seem to forget the power of the Name. God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit. There is power there. Let’s not speak those names unless we are talking to Him or about Him!

  27. Hello everyone. Hope you have a great Fourth of July!
    Proverbs 4:23
    Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.

    Our church message today was satan wants to lie to discourage us in our path God has called us to walk and accomplish. Through hiding truth in our hearts we guard against his attacks.

  28. I kept coming across this verse from Nahum this past week so this is my verse for the 13th week.
    Nahum 1:7(NIV) The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares about those who trust in Him.

  29. Hi all. I’ve needed to remind myself of the following scripture:

    ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.’ – Philippians 4:13 (KJV)

    Have a Happy 4th of July 🎊

  30. I will praise You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and I will glorify Your name forevermore.
    Psalm 86:12 NKJV

    God is so good and so faithful. I don’t know where I would be without His love and mercy. I will praise Him always and with all of my heart.

  31. Deuteronomy 6:4-9 The Great Shema:

    The Lord our God is one Lord, and you should love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might.

  32. This too is the scripture I chose for this weeks. So true in today’s society.
    Hebrews 11:6

  33. God bless you Jonanna. Philippines 4:13_ is my favorite Bible verse. It has gotten me through slot of trials and problems.

  34. “And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” Ephesians 4:32 KJV

  35. In keeping with my word for the year, victorious, I will be focusing next on Revelation 5:5
    Then one of the elders said to me, “Stop crying. Look! The Lion from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has been victorious so that He may open the scroll and its seven seals.”

  36. “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.” Romans 12:1

    I’m feeling discouraged because although I’m doing fitness activities, I’m not losing weight.

    1. Try not to be discouraged, Nancy. Instead, try putting your needs in God’s hands, let him know you trust him to do what is best for you and continue with your exercise plan. Then relax and let God take care of it. You will be pleasantly surprised at how God works for your good.

    2. Nancy
      You are not alone in this journey to try to keep/ return our bodies to a healthy weight. It’s a journey and we are all in different places. Keep turning to Christ and do your best to carry on with strength only He can provide. I’ll try to do the same!

  37. So, be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.”— Deuteronomy 21:6

  38. Proverbs 31:30 (NKJV)

    “Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,
    But a woman who fears the Lord,
    She shall be praised.”

  39. “And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.” Colossians 3:23-24 NKJV

  40. Psalm 62:8
    New International Version
    8 Trust in him at all times, you people;
    pour out your hearts to him,
    for God is our refuge.

  41. Wonderful verse with a profound faith message! I’m using the free Remember Me app to help with scripture memorization. Thanks to someone else who mentioned Psalm 141:3 “Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips,” as I want to let God control what I say.

  42. Colossians 3:23-24:
    Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ.

  43. John 6:40 For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.

  44. So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. Mathew 7:12

  45. God is not a man, that he should lie. Nor a son of man, that he should repent. Has he said, and will he not do? Or has he spoken,
    and will he not make it good?
    Numbers 23:19.NKJV

  46. Kay, I love your chosen verse…it was actually the very first verse I chose when we all first started this meditation series in January!

    For this week, I have made the following selection:

    “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
    — Mark 11:24 (NIV)

  47. You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word. ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119‬:‭114‬ ‭NIV‬‬

  48. You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word. ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119‬:‭114‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    This verse reminds me to trust in the Lord above all else.

  49. This week a reminder for myself: not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. 1 Peter 3:9 KJV

  50. Luke 10:19. “Behold, I have given you authority and power to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy. And nothing shall in any way harm you.”

  51. Cry out with joy to the Lord, all the earth.
    Serve the Lord with gladness.
    Come before him, singing for joy.
    Psalm 100:1-2

  52. Happy 4th of July!

    Revelation 17:14 – These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful.”

  53. James 1:2-8 NIV
    Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.

    Ten years ago, i. participated in a Beth Moore Bible study, The Book of James. We were challenged with memorizing the entire 5 chapters of James. I was in the midst of empty nest syndrome, so I did it. Anyone else? Sadly, I didn’t keep practicing it and now only remember certain passages. This passage speaks volumes to me now 10 years later. Maybe I’ll keep adding on. It is a beautiful book of the Bible.

  54. This week I’ve focused on Psalm 121:7-8
    The Lord will keep you from all harm- He will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forever.

    It seems that we live in such turbulent times. I give my well-being to God and let him take care of it all.

  55. 2 Timothy 1:7 NLT ~ For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

  56. The Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed. Deuteronomy 31:8.

  57. It has been a busy day getting ready to leave really early in the morning for surgery. I am trusting the surgeon to do a good, even great job on replacing my hip, but ultimately it is God who directs all things and brings healing and recovery. Thus this scripture reminds me of that:
    The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the Lord. Proverbs 21: 31 (ESV) Amen to that. How thankful I am to him for taking care of all the details.
    God bless you,

  58. Where would we be without the precious Scripture to speak life into us? I Peter 3:10 “If you want to enjoy life and see many happy days keep your tongue from speaking evil and your lips from telling lies.”

  59. Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you…amen
    Matthew 6:33 NKJV

  60. The verse I have selected for the next two weeks is:

    “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” ‭‭John‬ ‭1‬:‭14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

  61. Thought I’d look up some verses on kindness… this is my one for this time. Ephesians 4:32″Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”

  62. Jeremiah 10:12-13. The Lord is the one who by his power made the earth. He is the one who by his wisdom established the world. And by his understanding he spread out the skies. When his voice thunders, the heavenly ocean roars. He makes the clouds rise from the far-off horizons. He makes the lightning flash out in the midst of the rain. He unleashes the wind from the places where he stores it.

    I read this scripture a couple of days ago and it, along with the verses you all have posted, is encouraging to me as there is so much discouraging news all around us.

  63. I will join you in memorizing Hebrews 11:6, but in the NKJ version.

    “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

  64. “I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭16‬:‭8‬ ‭NLT‬‬

  65. James 1:2-3 (CSB): Consider it a great joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you experience various trials, because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance.

  66. Hello Ladies,

    I chose these scriptures because they are such an encouragement to me. Have a wonderful week!

    Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary and his understanding no one can fathom.
    He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Isaiah 40:28 & 29

  67. Continuing with the Armor of God in the NLT:
    For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.
    Ephesians 6:15 NLT

  68. 1John 4 v7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.

  69. But we hold this treasure in earthen vessels, that the surpassing power may be of God and not from us.
    2 Corinthians 4:7

  70. Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please him for whoever would draw near to God must believe that He exists and He rewards those who seek Him.
    I decided to pick this scripture also , Thank you for reminding me of this precious promise.

  71. Taste and see that the LORD is good;
    blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
    Fear the LORD, you his holy people,
    for those who fear him lack nothing.
    The lions may grow weak and hungry,
    but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
    Psalm 34:8-10

  72. Ephesians 3:16 is the verse I’m hiding in my heart. It says, I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being. Ephesians 3:16.

  73. This week I am choosing Ps 141:3, Set a guard over my mouth, Lord; Keep watch over the door of my mouth. I chose this because I have a house full of people here for the holiday and I am working on being patient and keeping my frustrations to myself.

  74. 2Timothy 1:7

    Got God has not given us a spirit of timidity,
    But of power,and love, and discipline.

  75. 1 John 4:5-6
    They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

    I’m currently leading a summer study on 1/2/3 John, so I’m looking there for my memory verses! I find this one so helpful, in regard to doing life here on earth! I’m sure you deal with this more than I do….. just because you have “the anonymous” of the World Wide Web who don’t bat an eye at criticism! So often things are said in cyber world that a person would likely never say in a face to face encounter!! I was shocked at some of the reactions with your wonderful interview on Cindy H’s site!! But anyway, this verse helps me to understand why people can say what they say and not take offense.

  76. Hi everyone,

    Psalm 139:13-14 NIV
    For you created my inmost being, you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

  77. My verse to share this week is Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

    This spoke to my heart !

  78. Happy fourth everyone. My verse is from Colossians 1 v17: He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.

  79. God… will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted he will show you a way out. 1Corinthians 10:13 NLT

    THIS SCRIPTURE PASSAGE JUMPED OUT AT ME BECAUSE DURING SUMMER MONTHS ITS EASY TO WANT TO DO IT ALL😊. I’m tempted to say Yes all the time and I know that moderation is key.

  80. Part of aging for me has been in my mind. My mind easily drifts to negative thinking and I find myself remembering past failures and difficulties. I want to memorize these verses so that I can meditate on the work of the Lord rather than my own failures.

    I will remember the works of the Lord: surely I will remember thy wonders of old. I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.
    Psalm 77:11-12 KJV

  81. Thank you Kay for this forum to share. My verse will be 1Thess 5:16-22, ” Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not treat prophecies with contempt but test them all; hold on to what is good, reject every kind of evil.

  82. Matthew 5:6. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

  83. 11 I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
    yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
    12 I will consider all your works
    and meditate on all your mighty deeds.”

    Psalm 77: 11,12 (NIV)

  84. What came to be
    through him was life,
    and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness,
    and the darkness has not overcome it.

    John 1 4-5

  85. Good morning ladies! I’m currently traveling and am surprised to know many hotels no longer provide bibles in the bedside tables. I am using a scripture from a Bible subscription email I received this morning. Blessings on your day, ladies.

    Psalm 37:8
    Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath! Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.

  86. Psalm 46:10 – Be still, and know that I am God.

    Congratulations Kay on your new granddaughter to be. Such exciting news. Welcome to the Grandmothers club.

  87. My husband and I are praying and memorizing this verse as he begins his Chemo treatments this week for pancreatic cancer:
    O Lord, my healing God, I cried out for a miracle and you healed me! Psalm 30:2

  88. I like your verse, Kay, so I am also memorizing it!

    And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.
    Hebrews 11:6 NIV

  89. Galations 6:9 NIV. Let us not grow weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

  90. Don’t copy the behavior of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think . . . Ro. 12:2 NLT

  91. ““Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.”
    ‭‭John‬ ‭14‬:‭1‬ ‭LSB‬‬

  92. I like your verse Kay. I want to memorize it for times of doubt. Heb 11:6. And without faith it is impossible to please him,for whoever would draw near to God must BELIEVE HE EXISTS and that he rewards those who seek him.

  93. Habakkuk 3:18
    Yet will I rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my savior.

    Habakkuk declares this after saying that even if there are no olive crops or grapes or sheep in the pen- I will rejoice in the Lord. Something I want to always remember. He is good and He loves us!

  94. My new verse is from Ephesians 6:18 NLT

    “Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.”

  95. Psalm 4:7 (ISV)

    “ 7You have given me more joy in my heart than at harvest times,
    when grain and wine abound.”

  96. Sirs, what must I do to be saved? They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved – you and your household.” (NIV) Acts 30b-31

  97. Jeremiah 29:12-13(NIV)

    Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

  98. Hebrews 11:6
    And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek HIm.

  99. Hi friends,

    I am continuing with Psalm 31…

    For You are my rock and my fortress;
    Therefore, for Your name’s sake,
    Lead me and guide me.
    Ps 31:3

  100. O Lord my God, you have performed many wonders for us. Your plans for us are too numerous to list. You have no equal. If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds, I would never come to the end of them. Psalms 40:5 NLT

  101. Happy 4th of July to everyone. I’m going memorize Hebrews 11:6 too. But without faith it is impossible to please him; for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

  102. I have been off and on with this scripture challenge, and sadly more “off” lately. I’ve recently discovered some health issues, nothing that many people haven’t faced, but I got myself in sort of a funk! I’m determined to go back and fill in the weeks I missed, then try to keep current with my bible reading. Since I need reminding apparently of whom I should turn to, I chose this verse from Psalms.

  110. It’s July 6th and I’m trying desperately to catch up for week 12 and week 13. I’ve chosen three verses for these two weeks….
    Psalm 116: 1-2, and vs 7 … “ I have loved the Lord because He hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because He bends down to listen. I will pray as long as I have breath. Let my soul be at rest again, for the Lord has been good to me.

    Psalm 103: 5. “ He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s “
    The month of June swept over me. There was a family crisis, overwhelming demands at work, and some deadlines nearly missed.
    Through it all were many prayers and many tears.
    Some how in God’s grace, the month ended with relief, laughter and even a celebration! I am so blessed and grateful to belong to God, my Father who not only hears my prayers, he bends down to ease my fears. Once again He revealed His plan for my life and renewed my strength .
    I am so thankful

  111. James 1:26
    If anyone considers himself religious, and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless.

  112. My scripture is:
    Ephesians 3:20-21
    “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine according to his power that is at work within us to him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations ,for ever and ever! Amen.”

  113. With the festivities of the weekend, I forgot to post my scripture. I chose the scripture you posted, but am learning the KJV.
    Hebrews 11:6. KJV

    6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

    But the Lord said to me “my grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness, therefore, I will boast or more gladly about my weakness, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”

    I love this scripture to remember that when I make mistakes, I know that God’s grace is sufficient for me.

  120. Continuing in Ps 40 verse 2 NLT

    He lifted me out of the pit of despair’ out of the mud and the mire

    He set my foot on solid ground

    And steadied my feet as I walked along.
