More Bible Verses

So I have two new verses for my scripture memorization goal.

I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. Revelations 3:15-17

That one I have memorized. It definitely is one of those verses that pierces your soul. I certainly struggle with being "lukewarm" in my faith and often forget how much I need Jesus. He alone is the author and perfecter of my faith.

Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates, so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land the LORD swore to give your ancestors, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth. Deuteronomy 11:18-21

This is the one I am working on. As you can see, it is a lot to memorize! I can paraphrase it, but I'm working on really knowing the words. I hope to apply this by frequently talking to Hannah about Jesus and making every thought captive to Christ.

Speaking of Hannah, she now says "amen" and attempts to say "Bible". She also folds her hands to pray when we prompt her. It's so adorable!
