Hiding the Word in My Heart!!

Do you want know what I think is embarrassing??? Well, I hate, HATE, knowing something in the Bible and not having a CLUE where it is.  I REALLY, REALLY hate that.  There have been times when I've wanted to encourage someone in the Word and I don't because I can't tell them where to find it. I especially hate it if it's with a random person that I just happen to strike up a conversation with and pray with them in the middle of the store ( this really happens because I never meet a stranger).  I always want to leave them with an encouraging word and I can hardly remember where the scriptures are found, gasp!!! This is sad, I have been in church a LONG time.  I read the Word daily.  I can give a general idea but that's as far as it goes.  This is not including the "classic" scriptures .  So I am determined that the kiddos and I will not only memorize scripture but this will include the verse.  I am not sure how I learned so many "memory verses" without knowing where they are.  I found this blog http://blog.lproof.org/ that is doing a group memory verse a week.  So far I can report that my kindergartner is doing so much better than me.  I am not claiming a bad memory but........ I can't remember what I wore yesterday or what I cooked for dinner.
I want my children to hide the WORD in their hearts.  I want to hide the WORD in my heart. There are times when scriptures that I learned as a child will come to mind just when I need them.  There is a Word from God for every situation.  His Word is the recipe for this life. I know that my favorite recipes can be cooked from memory.  I cook these meals so much that they are now just a part of who I am.  I want to be this way with God's word.  I just want it to be a part of who I am.

 Verse this week: All your children shall be taught by the LORD, and great shall be the peace of your children.” Isaiah 54:13 ESV

This was so encouraging to me!!!! All I could say was AMEN ( God I am in agreement with you)
