Scripture Memory Monday

What a beautiful Monday morning here in Alabama. I am so thankful for our God who is such a glorious Creator. The changing of seasons He allows is such a work of creativity and grace. I love experiencing the newness and the beauty of each one that comes and goes. What a gift. Thank you, Lord.

My goal for this week was to finish up the Colossians 3 passage that we have been working on. Because these verses are so familiar to most, I believe that we could indeed plan on memorizing the last three verses this week to finish up the chapter. (If you are tracking along here, go right ahead!) However, I think that I am going to take it a bit slower and really chew on verse 15 for the next few days.

"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts,
to which indeed you were called in one body;
and be thankful."
Colossians 3:15 (NASB)

Letting the peace of Christ RULE in my heart. . . Wow, what a difference that would make in my life each day! Dwelling in unity with the body of Christ - this is huge! And being thankful . . . for everything . . . always? Really? I mean, life changing!

Lord, please let your Word take root in our hearts and bring about change - real transformation - for your glory! How we long to be more like your Son. Thank you that You speak these words to us so that we may have life, life abundantly! (John 6:63, John 10:10, John 6:33)

Thanks for writing, Rachel. Yes, I needed this verse too, especially today. Isn't it beautiful how God's Word meets us wherever we are. Yes, I definitely wanted to make sure this verse was secure in my mind!
