Could You Imagine Life Without God’s Word?

When I was in college I used to wake up in the middle of the night with an eery feeling of fear. I blamed it on too many scary movies as a child, but that didn’t make the fear go away. To help, I found a verse in the Bible that comforted me and gave me strength to face my fear:

When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me? – Psalm 56:3-4

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like if we lost the ability to have God’s printed word… how much do we have stored in our heart and mind? Wish I had the fervor of those younger years when memorizing God’s word was an exciting challenge… Hmmm, could be a good blog challenge: weekly scripture memory online. :)

Wow. I did not know that. Going to spend a moment this weekend on that site and seeing how I can help. Thanks, Michelle. You are always making a difference.
