12 in 2012 {February}

Hyde Park, London
it's February 1... time for a new memory verse!
my verse for this month is a reflection of the fact that I get easily distracted. I admit it. I'm probably one of those people that's been living with undiagnosed ADHD, for years!!
I do love immersing myself in a project but I usually struggle to stay focused on said project, and keep clear of doing too much at once. the jury is out on whether or not multi-tasking is a benefit or detriment to your brain. does it help or hurt your ability to function. does it enhance or hinder ones level of productivity? I suppose it depends on you and your own personal preferences. except when it comes to sin...
in our relationship/life with Christ distraction comes at a steep price and with severe consequences. a lack of focus can mean a painful falter, a bad fall, a serious failure.
keeping your eyes on Jesus and a guard about your heart are imperative. letting your guard down, allowing your foot to stray, taking your eyes away from the road WILL cost you.

the passage of scripture I've chosen to memorize this month is a reminder to me of the importance of focus:

crystal;whitefish; Proverbs 4:25-27 (NLT)
"look straight ahead and fix your eyes on what lies before you.
mark out a straight path for your feet;stay on the safe path.
don't get sidetracked; keep your feet from following evil"

can't wait to see your verse! post it here!!
even if you're choosing to memorize the same verse as me,
type it out here in the comments section...

I use to put my verses on Facebook but I like to start sharing my fav Bible verses with you here. This one grab my attention... and I changed the word "Israel" for "Facebook"... I like the way it sounds...

"Listen, O Facebook! The LORD is our God, the LORD alone. And you must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength.” Deuteronomy 6:4-5 NLT"

God bless you!

Isaiah 41:10
The Message (MSG)

Don't panic. I'm with you.
There's no need to fear for I'm your God.
I'll give you strength. I'll help you.
I'll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.

Ephesians 4:31-32 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice. And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

Hebrews 11:6-"And without faith it is impossible to please GOD, because anyone who comes to HIM must BELIEVE that HE EXISTS and that HE rewards those who EARNESLY SEEK HIM." (My emphasis in caps). As an ex-Seminary student, we were taught how to interpret and keep in context the HOLY Scriptures, but, I have learned, you can be taught and read all day. The Scriptures become true and "alive" to us, when we have to put them into practice and begin living and trusting Our Precious LORD by faith. I Love your post, Crystal! They are an encouragement. In HIS LOVE and Grace, Sissy
