12 in 2012 {May}

have you read through the old testament lately? if you have, then you're well aware of the fact that God's faithfulness is constant, consistent, complete. i'm regularly wowed by the fact that He is always encouraging the Israelites, and each generation thereafter, to remind their families of His faithfulness. He admonishes them to remember, to make sure that each new generation is aware of their history and His faithfulness in the rescuing and redemption of His people. 

as i've been reading through it this year, i've been reminded, too.  i can look back at my childhood and recall moments when my grandparents shared stories of God's faithfulness with me.  days when my dad spoke truth into my young life. conversations with my mom that dramatically influenced my future. and i'm grateful for their faithfulness.

today i find myself in the beautiful, blessed place of being able to speak into my daughter and son's lives, as my parents did for me.  i've been told and taught... and now i get the privilege of telling and teaching.  

 i've chosen a memory verse for this month that reflects that truth:

crystal; whitefish, mt; psalm 89:1
"i will sing of the mercy and loving-kindness of the Lord forever, with my mouth will i make known your faithfulness from generation to generation."

{my mom, Mary}
{my daughter, Izzi}

join me in memorizing a verse each month! post yours in the comment section....

James 1:17 (NASB) "Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow."

Thanks, Crystal. How blessed we are. I was standing in church a few weeks ago with grandson Isaac, as we sang, "From generation to generation, You never fail us, O Lord...yesterday, today and tomorrow until the day You return......Great is His faithfulness. AMEN!

"Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines, the labor of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall
Be cut off from the fold, and there be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like Honda feet, and he will make me walk upon high places.". Habakkuk 3:17-19

Mat 5:13 "You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.

Mat 5:14 "You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.

Mat 5:15 "Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all [who are] in the house.

Mat 5:16 "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
