Memory Verse #10!

Where do I begin? It’s been a very full 15 days since the last blog entry. The Bible verse I have been memorizing these past 15 days really got me through, especially on days where I felt I could not go on. The fatigue has been the most challenging part to deal with. Will it ever end? Will I ever get over it? There have been many days where I asked these questions. And then came the reply: “Rely on the LORD! Be strong and confident! Rely on the LORD!”  (Psalm 27:14 NET) What a boost!

Plus, I just finished reading the book “WEIRD, because normal isn’t working” by Craig Groeschel. What an amazing book! I highly recommend it. What got my attention of course was the title. How could I not read a Christian book that’s called WEIRD. I had to. I have been called weird so many times in my life, and for so many reasons… I just had to hear what this guy had to say about weird. And wow, did this book take me by surprise. But a good one. After reading this book, I do want to be weird. And I don’t want to be afraid of what people will think about me. In this book a quote that really got me was: for normal people God is a part of their life; for weird people, God is their life. And that of course spoke to me tremendously. I had to ask myself over and over again: am I normal or weird? In this case I do want to be weird. Because I don’t just want to have a compartment for God and all spiritual things. I want God to be my life! Yes! If I have to be weird for that, than so be it!

And so on that note, I will be memorizing Psalm 142:15 (New Living Translation):

“Then I pray to you, LORD. I say, ‘You are my place of refuge. You are all I really want in life.'”

So, lets hear your Bible verses. Don’t give up, we’re in the double digits now! Come on, post your Scriptures, brothers and sisters!


  1. Revelation 22:20-21 (NIV)

    He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.

    Courtney, that is one of my favorite verses. This weekend I was in Calgary and saw the mountains and they always remind me of this verse 🙂
