Sending Deep Roots

Yesterday morning I woke with new incentive to plant the word of God in the hearts of my children. Several thing have lead me to this point. Mostly discontent in the home. I know His Word renews minds and changes hearts and EVERYONE in this house desperately needs that. We started in on our memory list again. It encouraged me to find the children remembering so many verses! I have a few blogs in my RSS feed so later in the day I read Ann's post at Holy Experience and she expressed so well what I had been thinking Tuesday night when I went to bed and Wednesday morning when I hit the memory verses again. Then just before bed Amy posted another confirmation - MEMORIZE!

Romans 12:2 "And do not be conformed to this world,
but be transformed by the renewing of your mind,
so that you may prove what the will of God is,
that which is good and acceptable and perfect."

How will my mind be renewed?

Psalm 1:1-3
How blessed is the man
who does not walk
in the counsel of the wicked
Nor stand in the path of sinners.
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!

But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.

He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers.

I want my roots to grow deep. I long to bear fruit. Why? So that I can live out the will of God! Memorizing is essential to my health.

us too! I told the boys today that they'll need to pick a chapter to start memorizing for this school term. I've started on Colossians :)

What are you working on?

Amy, We've picked up a verse list we had started long ago. I got it from Desiring God Ministries. It's their fighter verse list. We started a club long ago - The T. Fight Club, Fighting to be Strong in the Lord. Thanks for sharing and encouraging!
