2009 Scripture Memory Challenge #7 and Word-Filled Wednesday

(Photo courtesy of Google Images)

I'm combining my next Scripture for the memory challenge with my Word-Filled Wednesday this week. I loved the brief but powerful thoughts of Phil Ware of Heartlight on this verse:

Do you have a basis for pride? What is your source of that pride? Paul reminds us that our one, true, and dependable source of boasting is boasting in what the Lord has done for us on the Cross. This one source of boasting has absolutely nothing to do with anything that we have done, attained, or accomplished on our own. All other reasons to boast are fleeting glimpses at hollow fame compared to the joy and assurance of sharing in Jesus' life, death, and resurrection.

Forgive me, O Abba Father, for the times I have thought myself important because of some transitory accomplishment. Thank you for giving me a bedrock source of boasting in Jesus' love and grace demonstrated in the Cross. In Jesus' name I thank you. Amen.

I'm echoing his prayer this day...

When I stop and think about the fact that someday...EVERY kneel will bow and EVERY tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, it quickly humbles me. It causes me to be reminded again of His greatness. Thank you Tracy for this important fact!!

Hey Tracy,
Stoppin by to say hi. Your wfw post hit a cord with me. I too have been prideful. My pride gets in the way of doing what God tells me to do. I haven't found a memory verse yet this go around... maybe it will have to do with pride.

Thanks for your truth and honesty.
Holykisses,
Lea

I said as much just yesterday at our Lenten luncheon. Jesus Christ and him crucified. That's the only Truth worthy of this heart.

Just met Brennan while picking up the kids from school. I'm trying to send you a couple of "not so great", way over-exposed pictures. Let me know if you get them. I seem to be having some trouble sending them. I'll try and take some more tomorrow.

Wish you were here.
