LPM Memory Verse #1

To Trust is to Rest....

This afternoon I spent some time searching for my first memory verse for 2009. While reading, I began to really question what I wanted to see change in my walk with God this next year.

I wanted to find a verse that I could really grab a hold of and use as somewhat of an anthem for 2009. I thought about what is most important to me these days and came to the conclusion that what I seek for more than anything else is rest.

I need not only physical rest- something that has been in short supply lately due to our baby girl and her sleeping habits, but more than that I need spiritual rest. I want to feel secure in the fact that whatever circumstances I may find myself in this next year, I can find rest and peace. I want to be confident in the fact that I have a God that will lead me....and all I have to do is trust Him!

Just for fun I looked up the definition of rest and here's what I found. Ahhh..... how I long for God's perfect rest in my life!

While reading through Proverbs, this verse seemed to jump right off the page at me. Therefore I have made it my 1st memory verse and my personal goal for 2009!!

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do and he will direct your paths.
