Dec. Challenge

Hi everyone!!!
So...today is December 1st.


CAN YOU BELIEVE IT ?!?!?!??!?!?!?!
It sort of feels like it should still be August, you know?
****************************************************************
Anyway,  remember what I gave you a hint about yesterday?  And do you remember the October Challenge?
Yeah...it didn't go over welll...I mean, I had good intentions but..it just went down the drain...
But, I have a proposition for you!
The DECEMBER Challenge!!!!
So, before I tell you what exactly it is, let me give you a little back story.

BACK STORY:  ;)
So, I've been going to church, since I was a week old. I've been going to Sunday School since I as about 2. I've been a Christian since I was 4. And I've been an actual Christ follower since a couple years ago.
But you know what? I can only remember about 20, maybe 25, verses that I've been memorizing throughout my life. And, yes, that's bad. It's bad, since I've had the material {a Bible} around me just about all my life to be memorizing verses. It's bad, since I've been asking God why I hardly ever  know what to do when something hard happens. It's bad because just two days ago, I asked God to make me into someone that girls would look up to. Someone worthy of being His daughter. Yet I didn't know what to do to make that happen. {not that I can do that on my own, girlies. It's gonna be hard, but the only way it'll happen is if I let God. You know the phrase, Let Go. Let God.?} 
*****************************************************************
So, as y'all have probably gathered by now, my December Challenge is to memorize more Bible verses. 'Cause you know? I haven't memorized one since August. :P
I'm going to choose one Bible verse a day, {probably the night before, though} and I will memorize it.
I think I'll post the Bible verse that I'm working on every day. Do y'all want to join me? If you do, just leave a so I can pray for you in this. :)
So, the first Bible verse is:
1 John 3:16-
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our life for our brothers and sisters.

Look familiar? I just put it on the sidebar yesterday.... or the day before. {I have a bad memory when it comes to details like that!} You can tell what the next verses are going to be too, by just looking below that. :)

Okay, so, does that sound good? Now, could y'all pray for me in doing this? Memorizing things comes kinda hard to me!
Okay, have a good day, girlies!

  1. This sounds like a great challenge! I might just join. I'm pretty bad at memorizing verses as well, and memorizing verses from God's Word is something every child of God should see as important. I'll definitely be praying for you in regards to this!
