James and the soul journey….

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.

  1. I am in awe that you have undertaken this project. May your mind and heart remain firmly committed when Satan whispers, “Look, it’s only two verses. You can do them with tomorrow’s two.” I think you are doing something great, and when you have done it, you must, must, must share the book with others by telling the text aloud. Google “National Association of Biblical Storytellers.” You will be sooooo encouraged by them.

    1. I will look them up… thanks for the encouragement. I KNOW the enemy will fight for he already has. Knowing that there are those, like you, encouraging me spurs me on. Thanks Katherine!!

      1. Several years ago I memorized the story of Moses at the burning bush in order to tell it in a journaling workshop. I will never really know what it did for all the people who heard me tell it, but it changed me. I’ll be looking forward to progress comments once in a while as you work on this project.

I'd love to know what you think...
