Memory Verse #2

Jeremiah 29:11 (New International Version)

11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Husband help direct my next verse. I did not just go to bible gateway and pick the verse of the day. He also gave me really good advice that I thought I would share to maybe help someone else.
"You are to do more than just memorize this. Meditate on it all day. At least once an hour. Study it. Consider every word. Remind yourself that every word is God-breathed, every word.
This is God's way of reminding you that you don't have control. That this isn't your life to live. That God is sovereign (look it up, we say this word a lot, but its meaning is profound), and that if you had the perspective of God, you would choose your current situation as being what is best for you right now."

This is a verse I have known for a long time but I have not "studied" it. The verse really does take on a different meaning when you remind yourself each word is God-breathed. I challenge who ever is reading this to pick a verse and commit it to memory.

Now post yours!

You need to change the color of your ink. I cant read your posts against that dark background :)

I agree... there is some way to change the ink color, you just have to play with it and figure it out!
