2013… the year I commit to memorizing the book of James. All of it.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds,
knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance…
Five chapters… 108 verses… 52 weeks.
Don’t be deceived, my brothers and sisters. Every good and perfect gift is from above…
It’s part of this soul journey.
Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry…
My soul needs the Word imbedded within.
Has God not chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith?
I need the Word instructing me to live counter-culturally.
Mercy triumphs over judgment.
I committed to memorizing the book of James last September. I failed miserably.
What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds?
I’m starting over… my family holding me accountable.
With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings,
who have been made in God’s likeness…
I need this journey.
The Lord is full of compassion and mercy…
More than I know.
