Don’t even get me started about having them clean at the same time.
First and Fifteenth club is still under way. Beth Moore, who I adore and who seems to have as many deep rooted weeds in her past as I do mine, is an incredible Bible teacher and has been the catalyst of some monumental growth in my life in the last few years. She challenged her blog readers to memorize a new scripture verse on the first and fifteenth of every month. I love it and I’m casting aside the notion that I can’t remember references and I’m running for the finish line. TWENTY FOUR VERSES in one year.
My first of July verse has everything to do with FREEDOM! The battle cry of my life in Christ, the reason my Savior died, my own personal fourth of July celebration.
“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by the yoke of slavery.”
Galatians 5:1 (NIV)
Christ set me free from the chain of death. I will stand firm in that freedom and have asked the Holy Spirit today and everyday, to point out any area of my life where I am giving an inch back to the enemy. No turning back, NO. NO. NO. NO! No turning back.
