Seeking Jesus This Summer + Proverbs 31 Memorization

Happy Saturday friends! :)

Last week I finished memorizing Proverbs 31:10-31. I am so happy! Thank You Jesus for the ability to remember Your Word!!!

I began memorizing in mid-January, and finished on May 25. I memorized 1 verse each week and recited them to my mom every Sunday... It was SO special to hide the Scriptures in my heart and open it every time I needed it! Since I memorized Proverbs 31 during winter, verse 13 and 17 were incredible to remind myself with when I was shovelling the snow outdoors... "She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands" ... "She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengthened her arms." Every week Jesus revealed to me ways in which I could be a "virtuous woman"!

Proverbs 31
"Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. 
She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. 
She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruits of her hands, she planted a vineyard.
She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengthened her arms.
She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. 
She stretcheth out her hands to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth to the needy.
She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.
Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates."

Now that by God's grace I have finished memorizing Proverbs 31, I can move on to even more exciting things! Participating in Loving The Lord's "Summer Pursuit 2014"!! It is an amazing challenge (event) that lasts during the whole summer to encourage you to seek Jesus with all of your heart. I am so blessed to have found this! The goal is to spend at least 15 minutes with the Lord (prayer, Bible reading, etc...), memorize 1 verse a week, and contact a friend or family member every 2 weeks to talk about your progress! You can watch Amy Vest's beautiful video about it here

The challenge is beginning tomorrow on June 1st (yes, June is already here!), would you like to join me? I would so love to hear how Jesus is changing your heart towards Him during this spring and summer!! 

Psalm 27:8 "When Thou saidst, Seek ye My face; my heart said unto Thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek."

Today my family and I planted our garden with Yahweh's marvelous creations! I am very excited with all the possible posts I can write about it, so stay tuned! I will write up an update and more encouraging nature-oriented posts soon, Lord willing!

The flowers and pepper plants we chose for the garden!
I look forward to this summer of seeking our amazing Savior and Friend with you all!!! 

In all sisterly love,
