Siesta Scripture Memory Verse #5

We're in the 3rd month of the year... which means verse #5... this is getting fun. 
I really enjoy keeping an eye out (or a heart tug) for a verse that speaks to me....

So this is my pick for this round:

If you, O Lord, kept a record of sins,
O Lord, who could stand?
But with you, there is FORGIVENESS;
therefore you are feared.
-Psalm 130:3-4 (NIV)

Is anyone else so thankful that the Lord doesnt stay in Heaven with a book just marking every sin you do?  I'm raising my hand on that one. ... Jumping up & down, while holding my hand up actually...

I love the Message version of the last line - it says, "...& that is why you're worshiped"

All the things God does for us...& this is just another reason on our list on why we should fear, or worship Him.  Thank you, our Awesome God!!!


  1. Amen, friend! Our God is a forgiving father.

  2. Love this one Rebecca and my verse goes right along with it. "Do not fear anything except the LORD Almighty. He alone is the Holy One. If you fear him, you need fear nothing else." Isaiah 8:13 NLT

  3. I'm raising my hand up and jumping up and down right along with you on this one!

  4. Amen! I'm waving my hand in the air too :)

  5. LOVE this verse!!! And seriously, everytime I see that siesta memory verse picture, I laugh remembering you found my picture searching for that, ha!!

  6. Great Scripture!! And I hope to meet you face to face at the celebration next year!!

  7. There is forgiveness. That is so beautiful.
    I'm very glad that God does not sit in heaven keeping a record of my wrongs.

  8. This made me cry -- thanks for sharing my friend (ps - I realize making me cry is easy to do these days with all the pregnancy hormones)
