Scripture Memory Challenge 2/1 & 2/15

Can you believe it is the middle of February?!?! This year has flown by and there are no indications that it is going to slow down:) As I was preparing to post my verse for 2/15, I realized I hadn't posted my verse from 2/1. Oops.

Matthew 6:33 (NCV)
"Seek first God's kingdom and what God wants. Then all your other needs will be met as well."
I picked this verse because it is so easy for me to "present my requests to God" without really asking God what he wants. I want to remember to "Seek first God's kingdom AND what GOD WANTS" because at the end of the day, I just want to be smack dab in the center of God's will for my life.

Psalms 119:11
"I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you."
I chose this verse because I have been talking to our kids about the importance of knowing God so that we can discern what is true and what is not. I told them that one of the ways we can know if something aligns with what God says is to know the Bible. So, I am hiding God's word in my heart so I can recognize sin and stay away from it:)

I hope you are memorizing scripture too!!!


  1. These are great verses, thanks for sharing:)

  2. I am already faltering in the memory challenge!I didn't do a verse for the first part of February. I will have to double up for this last bit we have left!
