Scripture OVERLOAD!

I just realized that I hadnt put up my August Scriptures for the Siesta Sisters Memory Challenge... & now, I'm picking out my September one.  So why not put them all on for one day?  Who says that Scripture OVERLOAD is a bad thing?  I'll even add in a few comics for smiles ...& some thought... here we go :)

August 1 Scripture:
I know the Lord is always with me.  I will NOT be shaken, for he is right beside me.
-Psalm 16:8 - NLT

Simple enough ... powerful!  Love the idea of letting NOTHING shake me up! 

August 15 Scripture:

But sin didnt - & doesnt - have a chance in competition with the aggressive forgiveness we call GRACE.  When its sin versues grace, grace wins hands down. 
-Romans 5:20-21 (The Message)

Isnt that a great visual.  Grace beating down sin!!!  And I love the wording of "Aggressive forgiveness"... think of someone who is aggressive.  Someone who keeps going for what they want until they get their way!  That's Grace!  Punching down sin until it overtakes it!  Oh yeah!!!

September 1 Verse:

Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, & don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow.  God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.
-Matthew 6:34 (The Message)

I found out yesterday that my health insurance only covers 2 doctors visits a year... a YEAR people!  So I went into worry mode last night.  I have 10 more months in my year on this policy.  I went a 3rd time to a doctor & the bill was $215 since insurance doesnt cover anymore doctor's visits... can you imagine how much it will cost if anything serious happens to me this year?  So I found this verse this morning & am tucking it DEEEEEEEEEEP in my heart to remember everything will be OK - no matter what.


  1. 2 visits a year?!? Oh my stars. It isn't like you can "plan" to go to the doctor a year in advance. Insurance underwriters and policy makers make me shake my head. But I am glad that the Matthew 6:34 verse will calm your heart! :)

    (and totally giggled at the Adam and Eve comic. " YOU doin'?" came to mind...ha!)

  2. You do a great job of being serious, passing along the Word and being funny all at the same time. Bravo!

  3. Hope you can stay healthy! Medical bills are enough to make us sick!

  4. Girlfriend, I LOVE your verses!!! I LOVE SSMT!! Hiding God's Word in my heart has been so awesome this year!!

    2 VISITS A YEAR? What in the world?!! There is SO much wrong with that!!

    Love you friend ~~ have a Blessed evening ~~ LOVE YOU ~~ Dawn

  5. No overload - each verse was an encouragement to me! :)
