Memory Monday: Psalm 9:9-10

Are you working on memorizing Scripture?  I have become more intentional about it since January, but it's something I have to be truly disciplined about or it will fall by the wayside.

Today I came across a new blog to me, The Simple Wife, and she posts Scripture on Mondays that she intends to memorize through the week.  I would enjoy sharing my Scriptures with you, so I thought I might participate with her. 

I especially need these verses right now because I need a refuge in the time of trouble I'm experiencing.  They remind me that God is my only refuge, not people.  And I will more quickly trust Him if I have sought Him and know His character.

The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, A refuge in times of trouble. 

And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.

Psalm 9:9-10 (NKJV)


  1. Hey Liz,

    I've been encouraged to see how many bloggers are getting into scripture memory! I recently built a side-panel widget for blogs that displays memory verses from the website. It can either display random verses, or, if you are memorizing scripture on scripturetyper, it can show the most recent verse you've memorized. I hope you find it helpful!

    Many Blessings,


  2. I memorized a ton in college (a good chunk I still remember) but not a ton since then. Just this morning I've started working (again) on memorizing Romans 8. I love memorizing chapters because it allows me to meditate on them.

  3. Liz,

    I'm so glad you're joining us!


  4. I love the verses you've chosen to work on. I'm going through a tough time myself, so they're encouraging for me to read here. God is indeed our refuge; may we never forget it! Thanks for sharing.


Thanks for dropping by my blog. I love comments! I'll reply to you here or in an email, unless you have your email option turned off.
