Scripture Memory - Verse 12!!

Well obviously I have led a very exciting and blog-worthy life the last 2 weeks!  Actually we had a fantastic time with family at the beach.  I didn't take a ton of pictures though so there's not much photographic evidence to share.

Also, I have had lots of opportunity to reflect on my last verse. 

"Cast all your anxiety on Him for He cares for you."  1 Peter 5:7

The time for verse 12 really snuck up on me!  What with all the reading and playing in the sand and swimming in the pool and playing fifty-seven games of Uno a day. 

So as I try to recover from my post-beach slump, I'll be memorizing this:

"So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness."  Colossians 2:6-7 (NIV)


Here's one little nugget for you to enjoy:   


Ok, ok, one more:

Scripture Memory - Verse 11

This is going to be short and sweet.  I'm at the beach and using Wi-Fi at a little snack bar.  And really, who wants to be blogging when everybody around you is eating big cones of ice cream and you forgot your wallet?  I've got to get out of here!!

"Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths.  Guide me in your truth and teach me.  For you are God my Savior and my hope is in you all day long."  Psalm 25:4-5

My next one is short and sweet, just like this post!

"Cast all your anxiety on Him for He cares for you."  1 Peter 5:7(NIV)

I've known this scripture but not the address for a long time, although I think I always knew it as "cast all your cares".  The word anxiety holds a whole new meaning for me in this verse.  I can get a little lot anxious at times, so I'm going to be saying this frequently I think. 

So I'll be scarce around the blogosphere for the next few weeks.  Don't miss me too much!!  haha
