#1 Psalm 23
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul.
He leads me down the paths of righteousness for His names sake.
Yea,though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil for you are with me.
Your rod and your staff they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil, my cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
#2 Psalm 121
I raise my eyes towards the mountains.
Where will my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.
He will not allow your foot to slip, your protector will not slumber.
Indeed, the protector of Israel does not slumber or sleep.
The Lord protects you,
The sun will not strike you by day,
The Lord will protect you from all harm.
The Lord will protect your coming and going both now and forever.

Now This is what the Lord Almighty says, "Give careful thought to your ways.

This #20 verse is actually the current SSMT verse that I posted on the Living Proof blog, so I am a little ahead, and I have even been 'craving' more verses to memorize! Praise God for that! So because I am craving more verses to memorize I am jumping ahead and found this verse while reading Chapter 1 of the Made to Crave book - see the last post for more about that!
Everything is permissible - but not everything is beneficial.
Everything is permissible - but not everything is constructive.
About Memory Monday
I originally found Memory Monday with Joanne at The Simple Wife. The idea is to memorize a verse during the week and come back to her blog on Mondays to comment about it. That's it, nothing fancy, just simply an encouragement and reminder to memorize scripture for yourself. Please join in Memory Monday as a way to be blessed by hiding God's Word in your heart. And also join me in prayer for Joanne as she continues to recover from the stroke she had in January.
About Siesta Scripture Memory Team
This is another program to encourage us to memorize scripture and is hosted by Beth Moore over on her blog Living Proof Ministries Blog. This program is set up so that each person who wants to join the Siesta Scripture Memory Team will memorize two verses a month for all of 2011 and post a comment on the LPM blog on the 1st and the 15th of the month. If you do that all year you get to attend a Celebration with her and the SSMT next January! I so want to do that, don't you?
