Happy February everyone! This month is decidedly my favorite, since it is the month of love, and also my birthday.
Did anyone memorize any verses in January? If you would like to see the verses I memorized and maybe print them out, you can click here to be taken to my January post. One of my goals this year is to memorize 4 verses each month. I would love for you to join along with me.
The first verse I chose to memorize in February is actually a chapter. Since February is the shortest month in the year, I thought it would be appropriate to memorize the shortest chapter in the Bible-Psalm 117.
If you’ve been following along since the January verses, you know that I also want to memorize all the verses about the Proverbs 31 woman this year and strive to me more like her in my daily life. This month I am memorizing verses 13 and 14. These verses tell me that the Proverbs 31 woman was creative, making things for her family by hand. She was also creative when buying necessities for her household. I am sure she sought out the best deals so as not to waste her families finances. There are definitely seasons of my life when I feel more creative and enjoy working with my hands, but I would like to make it more of a regular hobby, especially since my children love when I crochet and make them things. As for bringing our food from afar, most of us live within minutes of a variety of stores, so I think the modern equivalent of this would be searching out deals and staying within budget. This is something I am usually pretty good at, but can definitely improve upon.
The next verse, Psalm 119:165, is a great reminder to everyone. I am hanging this one somewhere in my kitchen so I can look at it everyday and remember not to be easily offended.
This last verse I chose from Song of Solomon, the love chapter in the Bible. I originally chose this specific verse because it sounds so poetic, but as I was making up the printable God gave me a deeper understanding of it. A part of the verse says, “…for love is strong as death.” God’s love for us is as strong as death. He sent His only Son to die for our sins so that we could one day live in Heaven with Him. That is a love beyond comprehension. God’s love is so much stronger than any love we could ever feel. I don’t know of anyone who would willingly send their son, their only son, to die for someone else. I know I wouldn’t. Yet God did just that. His love is amazing and never ending. If you don’t know the love of God, or don’t know for sure if you are going to Heaven, please read this. You never know if today might be your last.
