    Ex 33:15-16
    Then he said to Him, “If Your Presence does not go [with us], do not bring us up from here. For how then will it be known that Your people and I have found grace in Your sight, except You go with us? So we shall be separate, Your people and I, from all the people who [are] upon the face of the earth.”

    this is one of my most recent favorites. It reminds me how severe it is to try and live this life on my own without God’s direction,
    i have just lately become another staistic… i am trying to make it through the devistation of a failed church plant. as hard as it can be to see something you love die, it is sooo much harder to try and make it live when God is not in it anymore.
    i dont believe that God allows difficult times so that He can punish us, i truly beleive it is so we can get closer to HIm, so we can mature in our faith, and draw near to Him. I love my Jesus with everything i am. even thoughit feels like my heart has recently been torn into tiny little peices, my God is faithful, and He is right here every step of the way, holding me in His arms comforting me in ways only our Saviour can.
    Dont go anywhere without Him. it’s not worth it.

    Colton, check me out on facebook!
    I actually memorized that scripture. I have a few I have memorized; The Magnificant, the 1st chapter of the Gospel of John, the 1st Psalm, etc.

    Memorization is great, because it allows a scripture to minister to you in an every deepening way.

    Memorization is a lost art, but humans actually do have a tremendous capacity for memorization. Many of the Greek classics were passed down from memory for hundreds of years before they were written down.

    Finally, memorization is unique in its ability to bring you into a real intimacy with a passage of scripture.

    Isaiah 9:1-7, is one of my favorite scripture passages. The beauty of the language can be appreciated by all those who love literature. However, it goes beyond that for me. The message puts everything in perspective. Jesus reigns!

    o Us a Child Is Born

    1 Nevertheless, there will be no more gloom for those who were in distress. In the past he humbled the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the future he will honor Galilee of the Gentiles, by the way of the sea, along the Jordan-
    2 The people walking in darkness
    have seen a great light;
    on those living in the land of the shadow of death [a]
    a light has dawned.

    3 You have enlarged the nation
    and increased their joy;
    they rejoice before you
    as people rejoice at the harvest,
    as men rejoice
    when dividing the plunder.

    4 For as in the day of Midian’s defeat,
    you have shattered
    the yoke that burdens them,
    the bar across their shoulders,
    the rod of their oppressor.

    5 Every warrior’s boot used in battle
    and every garment rolled in blood
    will be destined for burning,
    will be fuel for the fire.

    6 For to us a child is born,
    to us a son is given,
    and the government will be on his shoulders.
    And he will be called
    Wonderful Counselor, [b] Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

    7 Of the increase of his government and peace
    there will be no end.
    He will reign on David’s throne
    and over his kingdom,
    establishing and upholding it
    with justice and righteousness
    from that time on and forever.
    The zeal of the LORD Almighty
    will accomplish this.

    I’ll Start it off.

    One of my favorite scriptures is Philippians 2:5-11

    “Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
    Who, being in very nature God,
    did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
    but made himself nothing,
    taking the very nature of a servant,
    being made in human likeness.
    And being found in appearance as a man,
    he humbled himself
    and became obedient to death—
    even death on a cross!
    Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
    and gave him the name that is above every name,
    that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
    and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father.”

    This scripture amazes me every time I read it. It explains that we need to have the attitude of Jesus. Who gave up everything to be a servant, and who lived to save us. Jesus truly is the only one worthy of our praise!
