Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight. Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain. Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word. Psalm 119:35-37
- Beauty = you are a size 2 and have no wrinkles.
- Having that thing will make you happy.
- It’s all about you.
Lies. Lies. Lies. Our culture is lying to us every day. The deception is delivered through print ads, radio, TV, and more. There is really no escaping it.
But one thing we can do is combat it with steady doses of truth. Those might come through listening to praise music while working around the house, listening to a sermon podcast while taking a run, or reading scripture posted on a bathroom mirror.
One of the best ways to take in truth is by memorizing God’s Word, putting it deep into the heart and mind. A helpful tactic in memorizing scripture that I like to use is drawing fun pictures as memory aids. This is especially helpful in remembering the order of things when memorizing long passages.
Following are the verses we memorized in women’s Bible Study the last two weeks:
Give it a try! Have some fun. Pick a scripture that speaks specifically to a struggle that you are in the middle of, and I can guarantee your stress level will decrease and peace level will increase.
Dear Father, help me to take delight in your Word. Turn my heart toward you and away from selfish gain. Show me how to focus my eyes away from worthless things and on to you and your ways. Amen.
