SSMT Verse 22 - Galatians 6:9

Posted by Lisa Laree to Beer Lahai Roi

This is late because...I can't find my spiral notebook.  I thought it was in my purse, as I pull it out at odd times to study,  And I'm extremely frustrated.  I sincerely hope it hasn't fallen out in some odd place; but it patently isn't in any of the places I rather thought it might be.

Of course we have been moving and shifting stuff around quite a bit in the last few weeks, so, well, it could be in an unaccustomed spot.

But I have picked out the last verse of the 2015 Siesta Scripture Memory Team challenge and have decided to go ahead and post and add it to the spiral as soon as I find it.

Gal 6: 9, NIV 84:

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Simple and familiar and yet...not something I've not really committed to memory.

But it is a verse that has been knocking around the edges of my spirit in the past few days, as 2015 is winding down and wrapping up and I'm starting to turn my thoughts to 2016...what is it going to be?  If 2015 was a year of New Beginnings, what is going to be the theme of the new year?

What I keep hearing is 'growth'...the seed is planted, now it's time to push into it, keep at it, nurture and grow what began.

I'm not really sure what exactly that's going to look like, but it is something to ponder and pray over as we pause for the celebration of the holidays and the turning of the calendar to a new year.

But this is definitely a word to carry forward....Don't grow weary...don't give up.

  1. ...and I actually found my spiral in my office on 1/17/16; it had fallen out of my purse and was between a table and a bookshelf, on the floor. Relief. I won't be going to the conference in Dallas anyway, but I like having it to flip through and review just the same.
