Memorizing Scripture-->Guest Post By Lilly Shyree

  Hello! Today me and Lilly, from A Lilly in God's Garden are doing a post swap. Here's her post, and when you're done reading be sure to check out her blog!
Hello there,
I’m Lilly Shyree and I blog at:  Today I want to encourage you to know God’s word better.   
-          God’s word is powerful!!
Hebrews 4:12 says, For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
-          His word shows the way!!   
Psalm 119: 105 says, Your word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
We see from these verses that without the Bible…we are helpless.  This is why I really want to stress Bible memorization, which is a great way to know God better. 
Psalm 119: 11 says, Your word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against you.
There are days when we don’t have a Bible right in front of us to look up a verse.  There may be a days when our Bibles are taken away from us and we won’t have the encouragement to get through the persecution.  But if we memorize his word then no one can take it away from us!!  With God’s word we will always be able to fight against the troubles that come our way. 
Maybe you are thinking… “Wow this is good truths but I can’t memorize.  I’ve tried but I just CAN’T memorize.” 
But you can.  If I can…YOU CAN.  I’m sure you could probably sing the song Let It Go.  You might not realize it but you are always memorizing something.  We need to make sure that we are memorizing good things that are truly important. 
“Where do I start?” 
Start out this week memorizing one verse.  Try memorizing John 1:1, which says, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Here are a few steps on how to memorize:
-          Read the verse a couple times
-          Read the verse aloud a couple times
-          Read the first line a couple times
-          Say the first line aloud without looking at the verse
-          Repeat these steps until you’ve got the verse memorized
Tip: If you can, try to record your voice saying the verses and listen to it multiple times a day.  You can even burn it on a CD and listen to it while you go to sleep.  It helps a lot!!
Do you memorize God’s word?  How do you memorize?  What are your favorite passages?
Thanks so much, Laura, for doing the post swap with me!!  It was a lot of fun!

Free Docu-Series on Cancer/Earn up to $250 This Week

 Hello everyone! How is your week going? Recently, my family has been watching a really informative series on vaccines. Well, starting May 16th, the same company that made that will be airing another series, "The Truth About Cancer," online for free. It is a nine-episode long series, and will be played one episode per day. I definitely suggest that you and your family consider watching it.

  • It is estimated that 1/3 of all females alive right now will get cancer, and 1/2 of men. 
  • You will learn safe and effective ways to cure cancer in this series.
  • You will learn how to prevent cancer.
  • It will only be FREE for a short time. 
  • And more!
  -Now for the second part of this post: earn up to $250 this week.
  The makers behind "The Truth About Cancer" are trying hard to get the word out about this. So hard, in fact, that they will pay  you to refer people before May 16th. Here's how it works.
  1. Register using THIS LINK.
  2. By registering, you will get your own referral link. Bookmark this page so you can go back to it for your referral link later.
  3. Share your link! If 10 people register before the 16th using your link, you will get a $10 Visa gift card. If 25, 50, 100, or 250 people register using your link, you will get that amount in a Visa gift card. It may not be easy, but it seems worth a try to me!
  Has your family ever watched "The Truth about Vaccines", or "The Truth about Cancer"?

A Writing Tag!

  Today I'm going to be doing a writing tag that Lilly from A Lilly In God's Garden tagged me in. I've never done a tag before, but here it goes!

1) What Genres, Styles, and Topics Do You Write About?
  Historical Fiction
2) How Long Have You Been Writing?
  I've wanted to be an author ever since I was little. I had changed my mind, but now I want to write again. 
3) Why Do You Write? Different reasons. I really enjoy it, and it's a very exciting thought to one day have a book published,
4) When is the Best Time to Write? It's usually evening/night when I write. 
5) What Parts of Writing Do You Love? What Parts Do You Hate? I love when I'm writing something fictional, and not really thinking much about if it sounds right. I can always change that later, but you get the most written down this way. Something I hate is when I know there's a specific word I'm looking for, but can't remember what it is.
6) How Do You Overcome a Writer's Block? I guess I usually just think until it comes to me, or take a break from writing.
7) Are You Working on Something at the Moment? Yes, besides blog posts, I am working on a book, "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms." It's about two sisters in the 1800's who become orphans. I also will be writing a short story soon, for Rosalie Valentine's short story dash.
8) What Are Your Writing Goals This Year? Finish "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms" and publish it.

  I tag: Hailey Hudson

            Hannah White
              Audrey Caylin

  And you! Please use this tag if you wish! And if you leave your link below I may add it to this post. (:

The Good Samaritan

The Good Samaritan
Luke 10:25-37

  "And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou? And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live. But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour? And Jesus answering said,
   A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on himAnd went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. 
  Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise."
  Have you ever really thought about this parable? The Jews thought of the Samaritans as people below them. And here is a Samaritan, (after a priest and a Levite walk by ignoring him), helping him. But he doesn't just clean and bind his wounds. He takes him to an inn, and pays for a room. Then, leaving, he tells the host to take care of him, and if he spends any more than the two pence he gave, he'll pay it when he returns. 
 What can we learn from it?
  •   Go the second mile. He doesn't just bind his wounds and go. He pays for an inn, and pays for the host to tend to him more.                                                                                                     
  • Love everyone, not just friends. Knowing that Jews looked down upon Samaritans, he helped him anyway. 

  What else can you learn from this passage? Is there anything that stands out to you?

Kind Words

Kind words.
Kind words are a great way to bless anyone's day, and kind words can last a lifetime! 
 How do you feel when someone says something nice to you? Happy, right? How many people can you cheer up today? It's so easy to say kind things. I challenge you to bless someone's day (today) using   kind words.   It doesn't have   to be anything big. "That looks   nice on you," "You sure helped a lot!", and, "You're   great at ______," are a few ideas. 


The Bible mentions kind words.

  • Proverbs 16:24 "Pleasant words are a honeycomb, Sweet to the soul and healing to the bones."     
  • Proverbs 12:25 "Anxiety in a man's heart weighs it down, But a good word makes it glad."         
  • 1st Thessalonians 5:11 "Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing."

So, how many people you can bless today?

 PS.Here's another idea you can use to bless someone...(:
