I'm in the process of drying this flower out. I only just received it last night, so the process is not very far along yet. However, in time, it will be dried out completely. Do you feel like at times God's Word dries out? As previously mentioned, last year, I tried to read the Bible in a year. I got to a point where I was only reading the Bible. I wasn't soaking it up. I was reading the words, but I wasn't letting them effect and change me. But God's Word doesn't dry out. Ever. It always has something practical and useful! The words in it are for our benefit, so we should take time to diligently read, memorize & study.
But isn't it tough to put that into action? So today, I signed up for my church's scripture memory challenge. It's three months of memorizing different passages. I'm really excited. :) Oh, and this is something cool I wanted to share. I asked my small group leader to be my "listener" (the person who listens to me say the verses each week) and she asked me to be her listener too! She has two kids and a busy life, but she's taking time to memorize scripture. It was a real encouragement to me. She's awesome.
I hope you all have a fabulous Sunday! :) Linking up to Scripture and a Snapshot & Observing Beauty.
