Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
When I was thinking about memorizing scripture, I thought back to high school when it was a weekly requirement for our Bible class. In high school, I would memorize it by writing it over and over again. I know this would probably still work, but I don't have a ton of time to sit and just write it out over and over. So, I decided that I'd post it in the bathroom. With all the water I've been drinking I'm in the bathroom ALL.THE.TIME. So, I figured it was a good way to spend the min or two I'm in the bathroom. I've been reciting it to myself completely and then been trying to memorize it in segments. So far, so good!
At the same time yesterday, I found myself worrying about a financial bind we'll be in the next 2 weeks. I've been wrestling with God...
"Ok, God, we've only got so much and we've gotta use most of it to pay for this situation. I know that you've led us to this, but isn't there another way? I mean, we'll have almost no money left, what if something happens.... what if.... what if...."
I was having this conversation with God again yesterday (funny how it's less of a conversation and more of me
informing God of something he already knows about) when suddenly I remembered the first segment of my memory verse this week...
"... To Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine..."
I seriously rolled my eyes at myself. Really, Jessica?! You're memorizing this verse that is proof that this issue is not impossible for God. Yet you're sitting here worrying about it. How silly we humans are.
Thank You, God, for reminding me that there is no need for shortsightedness and fear because you are capable of things that I can't even dream up! And thank you for loving me in spite of my lack of faith!
