SSMT 2017: Verse 6

I’m a little late posting my latest verse (will back-date this post), but I am still working toward the goal with the Siesta Scripture Memory Team. For more information, check out Beth Moore’s post.

I posted my sixth verse over at Beth’s Blog where Beth has included a wonderful video of encouragement. I loved that she referenced our focus verse from last week’s RYM challenge lesson. Over the next two weeks I’m going to be working on memorizing Hebrews 10:36.

“For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised.” ~Hebrews 10:36 (NASB)

I’ve chosen this verse because I have decided to change my food boundaries. My weight has been stalled for 6-7 months in the same 5-8 lb range (been in the same 2 lb range for almost 3 months of that). Weight isn’t the only reason… in fact, it isn’t even the main reason I’m changing boundaries. I’ve been feeling crummy lately (partly due to stress and partly do to what I’m eating).

I’ve clung to my WW points boundary (Mar 2016- Feb 2017) and then switched to tracking calories 4 weeks ago (still not losing and still feeling icky). So, now I’m going to try being more choosy about what I eat. I’m already vegan 90+% of the time, but I have strayed from my original intent to be “whole-food plant-based” – which basically means less junk and processed foods. Yes, there are junky vegan foods.

Anyway, I will definitely need “endurance” and right thinking as I make these changes, hence the verse choice.

SSMT 2017: Verse 5

Still pressing on with the Siesta Scripture Memory Team, just check out Beth Moore’s post.

I’ve already posted my fifth passage over at Beth’s Blog where K-Mac shares about her verse. I’m continuing with my plan to memorize Proverbs 3:13-18 between now and March 15th. So this segment will be Proverbs 3:17-18:

“Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her; those who hold her fast are called blessed.” ~ Proverbs 3:17-18 (ESV)

SSMT 2017: Verse #3

Happy February! It’s time for a new verse! For more information, just check out Beth Moore’s post.

I’ve already posted my third passage over at Beth’s Blog and now I’m adding it here 🙂 My plan is to memorize Proverbs 3:13-18 between now and March 15th. So I’ll be working on 2 verses each two week cycle. This segment will be Proverbs 3:13-14.

I haven’t started decorating this one because I don’t have a purple highlighter but I will update this post with a completed photo in two weeks:

SSMT 2017: Verse #2

It’s already the 15th of January and that means it’s time for a new verse! If you aren’t sure what “SSMT” is, just check out Beth Moore’s post for more information.

I’ve already posted my second verse over at Beth’s Blog and now I’m adding it here 🙂 I’m choosing Hebrews 13:5 because one of my themes lately has been “learning contentment”. Since I have financial goals I hope to reach this year, I thought it seemed appropriate to choose a verse which marries money and contentment.

As I mentioned in my “verse #1 post“,  I plan to decorate each index card. Here’s the one for January 15th:
