2013 Scripture Challenge: Verse 2

My next verse is important. I may be dealing with a lot of change in the coming months at work, and I needed this today while searching for the perfect verse to memorize.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

Joshua 1:9 (NIV)

Who am I to disobey God's commandment? He orders me to be STRONG. He wants me to be courageous. He wants me to face this obstacle and overcome it. And the best part - He promises He'll be right there beside me.

2013 Scripture Challenge

Shannon found this awesome challenge from Beth Moore to memorize two verses a month for the duration of 2013. I'm going to attempt it. I'll post them on the blog to help keep me accountable. I'm using one of her recommendations for the first verse:

You crown the year with Your bounty, and Your carts overflow with abundance.
Psalm 65:11 (NIV)

What a great verse to kick off the new year! Comment if you'll join me in this challenge!
