As I have been writing these down, I have also been slowly memorizing them, tackling one verse every couple of days. My heart is encouraged, comforted, reproved and instructed in this and it is helping me to be able to turn to different verses for specific times of my life.In times when I feel alone I can cling to verses that remind me of the Lords love and grace towards me. When I feel like nothing is going right in my life, I can rely on verses that speak of the Lords faithfulness and his promise that he has a plan for me.Without having different verses like this Memorized, my heart is prone to easily slip into unbelief instead of faith in the promises of God and who he says he is.
Welcome to the children and the bible blog. This blog will talk about the importance of teaching the bible to the children. This blog will basically cater the different aspect on the children’s role in the bible.
We have upon our feet the shoes of preparation to preach God’s gospel of peace. Therefore, we will stand strong and secure. We can meet any attack of the devil by raising the sWord of God’s Spirit, which is His Word.
I had a situation like this this past week. A friend called specifically for some advice, and after listening, I told her what I would do according to what scripture teaches. She called me knowing that I would tell her truthfully what I thought.
These are the friendships that matter. Where each person is teachable and dependent on the other to ‘set her straight in love’ if she thinks she is going to do something that dishonors the Lord.
Another great resource is Judy Rogers CD Teach Me While My Heart Is Tender ‘ It’s a combination of previous albums (Why Can’t I See God & Go To The Ant). It covers the children’s catechism and some proverbs. Judy is reformed (presbyterian) hence the catechism which was foreign to my upbringing, but WOW I can’t recommend it highly enough> Just to explain for those who may think as I did that catechisms are just for catholics ‘ it’s not true.
A sampling of the catechism questions covered on this CD: God Made Me, The Ten Commandments, How Can I glorify God., The Greatest Commandment. I suggest researching it a bit more and considering it to supplement CDs like Hide Em in Your Heart and straight memorization.
