Bible Verse Sunday for September 26th, 2010

HI everyone....Are you having a good Sunday? Here's a Bible verse that I literally carry around with me everywhere I go. I didn't have any idea for a photo and I wanted to write out the ENTIRE verse...so I just photographed the index card upon which it was written. This one is in the New King James version of the Bible.



I always have my little "portable" Bible underneath my computer  monitor at work...and this little index card with Philippians 4:8-9 written on it...sitting on top of that. I try to memorize Scripture at work...because I want to commit more Scripture to memory...but also because I don't want to get burned out at work. There are only so many photos of fruit etc that I can stand before it gets boring fast :) :) 

Also, this verse...among many others...helps me to keep things in perspective, especially when customers are being difficult etc.  Yesterday, my customers were really nice, but it was quiet and I wanted to focus my thoughts on something besides myself and boredom. So I was looking at this verse...and this idea poppped into my head to write down the keywords to help me memorize it. See the photo below...

In the NKJ version, the word see is actually "saw"...but I was trying to make it applicable to right NOW....but it still helps me to memorize it correctly :) :) :)

This paper is literally the paper I was  "doodling" on at work yesterday. I wrote 9:45 a.m. because that is when I thought up this idea...You can see my little "doodle" mistake and a drop of water I spilled on here.  Anyway, I was really pleased with this and the verse is an excellent measure for anything in life....one practical thing, is for what we watch on television. That's a challenge even for me sometimes..

However, at the end when I wrote "learn, receive, see"...."DO"...."peace"....think about it....put into practice what God has for us and we WILL have peace. He's the author of perfect peace :) :) :) He loves us so very much.

Anyway, that's my verse for today. That's the news from Oregon today. Bonus love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

Scripture memory is SO important. I have several Scripture Memory CD's by Integrity Music. They come in all sorts of themes (anxiety, God's grace, spiritual warfare, etc.) They make it SO easy to memorize scripture...however, the song remains SO in your mind that oftentimes when you think of the verse, you think of it in song.

This is a fabulous verse to memorize. If we all really lived it, it would change our lives!!

Have a great day.

Love,
Patti

Thank you for visiting me today Heather
I have many great memories shared with my Mother. She is now unfortunaty living in a home since she was 70 with Alzheimers Disease and doesn't even remember her own name so I keep her her memories alive for her.
Have a wonderful love filled Sunday.

I wish I could memorize more scripture. But I do know Eph 6:11. It is one of my favorite Scriptures. I try to repeat it to myself each day. You do an excellent job with your SS posts. I am always glad to see you. Anne :)

Thanks for sharing how you are trying to memorize scripture. I am also trying to memorize more scripture. It really helps I think. We should do a little group and pick one a week and memorize it. I am looking up what Patti said now. I want those.
Have a great sunday.
Hugs,
Kim

I love that verse. In the days long ago, when we had autograph books, my favourite teacher wrote that in mine.

Thanks for sharing your photo - idea. Quite clever and inspiring!

I realised that I need to also memorize scripture myself, before I can expect my kids to memorize their verses. Now we're an encouragement to one another. My 5 year old can now recite Psalm 23. We do this together every morning after Bible story time.

Blessings!
