Verse #4

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous.  Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.  Joshua 1:9 NIV84

I have a confession...When I first started this memorizing thing I wanted to pick a verse for something that I was going through or a verse that spoke to me.  After these first four verses I have found that a little difficult.  Call me a slacker or what ever you want but here is why... Each week we all have new verses to learn.  By all I mean Chaney and Tucker have two separate verses that they learn each week for Awanas.  Chaney has a new verse each month for her Sunday school class.  Tucker and Paislee have a different verse each month for their Sunday school class.  By the time I get done helping them memorize those we have already gone through about four different verses in one week, add mine in and that is five different ones.  For a  mom with not much brain power left I find myself struggling so I'm changing my tactics.  I will be picking one of the verses the kids do.
