Siesta Verse #1

Its the first... Which means its time to start a new year of Scripture Memory with my "Siesta's".  If you havent heard of this before, the plan is to get a verse that speaks to you & memorize it - you do this on the 1st & the 15th of each month, so at the end of the year, you have 24 verses of scripture tucked away.... 24 seems very realistic to learn in a year - right?

I purchased the new little card holder that Beth Moore offered & was excited to get going on it.  Then today, I see it popping up on everyone's blogs & I'm thinking, "UH OH - where is my memory cards?"... I thought it got lost in the Christmas hustle & bustle...

But all is well... so here is my first verse of the year I am going to memorize.... (& a big thanks for Carolina Girl for reminding me of it!!!)

Don't panic. I'm with you. There's no need to fear for I'm your God. I'll give you strength. I'll help you. I'll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you -Isaiah 41:10

Anyone else joining along?  Let me know what your scripture is...


  1. I don't know if I'm going to commit to 24 of these, but I'm writing this one down & memorizing it!

    Have a blessed New Year!


  2. I signed up too!! My verse is Luke 1:76-79.....
    So excited for this....And the gathering next year!

  3. You know I'm right there with you RJ. My verse is Psalm 27:13-14.

    What version is your verse from?

    So glad we are doing this together with so many others.

    Praying for you and your family.

    Love you friend,

  4. What a powerful verse RJ ~ and I need to memorize this one on the 15th as our 7 yr old has a major surgery on the 18th and I still don't have peace about it! So thrilled to be on this scripture journey with you and so many others!

  5. I have been "out of pocket" for quite some time and have missed reading your blog. I have started back trying to blog and I have joined back up for the 2011 Siesta Scripture Memory Team. The verse I selected as my first is Hebrews 10:35-36 NIV.

    Looking forward to doing this with you! Let's do it!

  6. I missed this last week (my internet has been up and down and up and down for the last few weeks and driving me crazy) but this week I saw a mention of a "don't panic" verse and had to come find it.

    All of that to say...this is the verse that I need right now. Thank you. I'll be memorizing it! I already wrote it down on a little card.


I am thankful for each comment & like to respond to every one of them....
