I got a copy of Hinds' Feet on High Places from Paperbackswap and have been reading it over the weekend. What a great story. Simple but chock full of truth. Someone had recommended the book to me 4 1/2 years ago, and I'm finally reading it.

My memory verse for the week is Psalm 119:71, "It is good for me that I have been afflicted, that I may learn Your statutes."


My verse this week is Proverbs 3:5
"Trust in the Lord with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding."

I love putting the verses into first person. I think they stay with me more when I do that.

Lisa notes...

I also love how you put that into first person. Makes it even more powerful and meaningful. I'll have to try that myself.

I'm learning Proverbs 30:8-9 this week, trying to be satisfied with the perfect amount of trials and blessings that God sends my way...
