James, a slave of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ. I am writing to the 12 tribes, Jewish believers scatter abroad - Greetings! Dear brother and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. (James 1:1-3, NLT)
Y'all will love this image. This week a friend of mine and I started running at 5am again due to heat and night time baseball schedules. If you have been a reader for any length of time (poor thing!), you know that I hate to get up early. I mean I pure DESPISE it. But I love to run, so it offsets I guess =)
Well this morning my friend surprised me...she brought memory verse cards! You see we took the Beth Moore challenge to memorize the entire book of James in 5 months starting May 1st! I had planned to get my cards together tonight...but let me tell you that it really passed the running time this morning! Granted...I have a neighbor (or two) that now has confirmed my sanity level...
It was hilarious. I giggled so much it slowed us down a tad...ha!
If you aren't currently memorizing anything for eternity...join us in the challenge...James is an awesome book full of amazing advice and life lessons that apply today!
Well, I am off to read the rest of Judges for my daily reading...if you aren't currently using a daily Bible reading plan...join me in that too =) You won't waste a minute on either of these tasks!
