For You are the God of my salvation;
For You I wait all the day.
Psalm 25:5 ESV

Then wait and see where He leads us and what He will teach us.

Update: New Memory Verse Theme

Hello Fellow Memorizers:

Tomorrow, March 7, 2021 we will be beginning a new set of memory verses titled” Waiting on the Lord”

I am feeling these verses about waiting will be very relevant to us during these times we are in, for during these days of uncertainty and unrest, we are all seeking the Lord’s help, hope and strength to endure as we seek better days for ourselves and the world we live in here on earth.

I hope you will continue to memorize with us each week.

Blessings to you daily,

Heart Help–Trust in God

HH-Psalm-62.8
Trust in Him at all times, you people;
Pour out your heart before Him;
God is a refuge for us. Selah”
Psalm 62:8 (NKJV)

Memorize this verse so whenever you start to fear or doubt, you will be reminded to trust in God at all times, then pour out your heart to Him,
for He is right there with you and He will strengthen you and protect you.

Trust in Him, saints, for “He is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46:1)

 

Heart Help–Serving Heart

HH-1Samuel-12-24

 

“Only fear the LORD, and serve Him in truth with all your heart;
for consider what great things He has done for you.”
1 Samuel 12:24 NKJV

Memorize this verse so whenever you feel fearful you will be reminded to consider all the great things the Lord has done for you,
and this will cause your fear to leave as you focus on serving Him with that truth in your heart, for you will be reminded that He
is a great and mighty God, who never leaves you nor forsakes you, and He will always help and protect those who are His.

 

 

Heart Help–Strong Heart

HH-Psalm-31.24

 

“Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart, All you who hope in the LORD.”
Psalm 31:24 (NKJV)

As we do our part of standing in faith and belief, being courageous, trusting in Him, the Lord will do His part
by strengthen us further.
So, stand strong, continue in hope, faith and trust, our God will not fail us,  He is faithful and His word is true.

Memorize this verse to remind yourself daily to “Be of good courage”.

Heart Help–Merry Heart

HH-Proverbs-17.22

 

“A merry heart does good, like medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones.”
Proverbs 17:22 NKJV

Choosing to be joyful in all circumstances improves our mental and physical health.
Have you noticed when you allow yourself to feel depressed your mind as well as your physical body is affected?
You lose energy, you become disinterested in life, but when you choose to overcome negative circumstances by
being joyful your focus is changed and you feel energized and happy.

As you memorize this verse, think upon what it means to you and your life.

 

 

Heart Help–Assure Your Heart

HH-1John-3-18.19

 

My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.
1 John 3:18,19 KJV

As you memorize this verse this week, pray for opportunities to put it into action, so that you may walk through this week with an assured heart.

Heart Help–Take Heart

“Therefore take heart, men, for I believe God that it will be just as it was told me.”
Acts 27:25 (NKJV) (words of Paul)

God sent an angel to Paul to tell him not to be afraid and Paul believed Him and told his followers to trust and believe also, even though the circumstances didn’t look promising, Paul still believed what God told him.

Today, many of our modern day prophets  have been preaching and declaring that God has told them things that in our natural world do not seem to be happening, however, they are standing in faith and believing what God has told them, just as Paul did long ago.

Has God told you something–believe Him, stand in faith until you see his words come to pass, don’t be swayed by  your circumstances or the world’s voice around you, for we walk by faith, not by sight.

Memorize this short verse as a reminder to take heart in these chaotic times and believe God even when you can’t see the results, trust in His words.

 

 

Heart Help–Do Not Let Your Heart Faint

HH-Deuteronomy-20-3-4

 

“Do not let your heart faint, do not be afraid,
and do not tremble or be terrified because of them;
for the LORD your God is He who goes with you,
to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.”
Deuteronomy 20:3,4 (NKJV)

Heart Help–Do Not Lose Heart

HH-Galatians-6.9“And let us not grow weary while doing good,
for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.”
Galatians 6:9 (NKJV)

Do not grow weary saints, keep doing good, in the Lord’s time you will reap what you sow.  Do not become discouraged.

Memorize this verse and speak it aloud to yourself whenever you start to feel weary.

Heart Help–Do Not Be Afraid

HH-Isaiah-51.7“Listen to me, you who know right from wrong, you who cherish my law in your hearts.
Do not be afraid of people’s scorn, nor fear their insults.”  Isaiah 51:7 NLT

Listen Believers, the Lord is telling us we have nothing to fear if we know Him, read, study and obey His word, and walk in His way and word daily

Memorize this verse for assurance and comfort during these chaotic times we are living in.

UPDATE: New Memory Verses–Heart Help

HH-Update-ImageHello Friends,

Beginning January 3, 2021 we are planning to launch a new Memory Verse Collection called Heart Help.

We feel that we all need some heartfelt encouragement during these chaotic times we are now living in and so we have decided to begin sharing weekly from a group of scriptures dealing with the Heart. We have found many scriptures that speak about the heart  and thought this year might be the appropriate time to begin memorizing them.
So each week of this year we will be doing that and we hope each one will uplift and encourage you in your walk with the Lord.

God’s blessings upon you daily as you read, study, memorize and share His word.

UPDATE

Hello Fellow Memorizers:

It has been a few weeks since my last post as I have been praying and pondering just what God wanted me to begin memorizing next, and now I feel He is calling His believers to a time of Praise.  Many of the prophets are saying that this is a season we should not only be in much prayer but also be in daily praise to God.
In these days of great chaos, uncertainty and social unrest we need more than ever to keep our minds focused on God, His word and prayer, but I am also sensing in my spirit that He is calling us to be praising Him daily now more than ever, for we are told many times in His word to praise His name.

Therefore, beginning next week we will begin a new weekly memorization program titled “Praise Pause”.

This will be a 30 week program, where we will memorize verses that lead us to praise His name.  Since we have just finished memorizing verses on the Names of God, this program will be a good way for us to offer praise to Him daily using one of His many names to do so.

Our ministry has published a book titled “Praise Pause” which I will be using each week to share verses from for us to memorize.
If you would like to purchase the paperback book or e-book, just visit the Bookstore page on the website where you can purchase a copy or copies securely through Amazon.

Blessings to you and I do hope you will be joining me each week in this new memorization program.

Let’s all unite our hearts and voices to offer praises to our God daily using one of His many names!
