Self Control and Failure and Scripture Memory

Self Control is not something I do very well. I never have. I fail and fail over and over again as a attempt to set goals for myself. Did you see how I stalled out after 18 days in my 30 days of thankfulness… Lame! So I quit. Rather than pushing through, I stop. Its one of the things I like least about myself. I desire to be self controlled, I desire to walk that fruit of the spirit. I want to be a woman of my word. I need the Lord to meet me in this area of my life. I need to change and grow in Christ likeness.

Anyone else?

For Christmas, my Mom and Aunt, got all of us girls Beth Moore's Siesta Scripture Memory Spirals. So I  committed to memorize 21 scriptures in 2011 with thousands of other women all over the world.

I am really looking forward to actually accomplishing this goal. I think I can do it. With the help and accountability of the ladies in my life, and the great grace of my savior, I will not fail!

So my first verse is this:

As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men, but in the sight of God chosen and precious, you yourselves like living stones are being built into a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. - 1Peter 2:4-5
