Today I won the centennial badge on the Scripture Typer app for memorizing 100 verses! WOW!
I’ve been using this app for several months so I have slowly built up to this.
I have a lifelong habit of memorizing scripture on 3×5 cards. However, I love the way this app makes memorizing like a challenging game and fun. But in this game, you always walk away, a winner!
3 Ways You Always Win Memorizing Scripture
1. Gives you brain food. Scientific research shows that your brain actually gets smarter when you memorize.
2. Relieves stress. Memorizing verses about God’s love and care for you, gives you relief from stress and calms anxiety.
3. Increases strength. Memorizing verses is like strength training. As you get wisdom from Scripture, you have greater courage and strength to face and overcome the difficulties in your life.
This week, a local fitness center, Crossfit Siloam has a special called, “Kill a Friend” (LOL) and they’re offering free classes.
As I grow older, I’m intentional about doing the things that renew and protect my health. Some of you may know about the green smoothies, gluten and sugar free diet and Young Living Essential oils I use that have changed my life and health for the better in the last couple of years.
Though I walk for exercise, I decided that I need to get my body stronger so I decided to try Crossfit. An encouraging, cheerful young man greeted me and had me squat down, put out my hands. “Now get up.”
What does cleaning up crayons have to do with growing stronger?
My grandsons scattered crayons all over the floor as they colored, ran off and left the mess.
I yelled after them, “Come on over and clean up this mess you made and put the crayons back.”
“Come on, it makes you strong to clean up your own messes. So come over here and get strong by taking responsibility to clean up your mess.”
They ran to the mess of crayons all over the floor and started putting them away.
God does not need you sick, weak and poor to keep you dependent on Him.
This belief system is a lie perpetuated by the enemy of your soul who wants to steal, kill and destroy you.
Instead God comes to you when you’re sick, weak and poor to heal, strengthen and prosper you.
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” John 10:10
Is it hard for you to get up in the morning?
My friend, Sue told me, “I need several cans of coke a day to keep me going. Then sometimes I can’t sleep at night because I had too much. The problem is I can’t get through the day without it.”
Do you feel yourself start to lag in the afternoon and wonder how you can make through the day? Maybe there are driving pressures at work, difficult people you live or work with that drain your energy.
“No, they get stronger as they peck at the shell. If you broke it, they wouldn’t have the strength they need to survive.”
I watched the baby chick peck its way out until finally it flung its body out of the shell and flopped. The chick tried to get up and fell, tried to get up and fell again, over and over. The chick flapped its little wet wings and tried to walk on its huge webbed feet but couldn’t.
