Happy New Year!
With the new year starting, I of course began to think of GOALS (not resolutions) for the upcoming year. My oldest son came up with a great one! Awhile back he talked about learning a new Bible verse every week of this year. I thought it was a great idea and told him I was definitely on board! So...with that, the Blake family will be learning a new verse every week. 52 verses. Awesome. (He later told me that he thought he might do a verse every 3 or 4 weeks...oops.)
We thought about starting with John 3:16. I googled a few things and found that this verse is the most sought out verse on the internet. Sounds like a great place to start...but everyone already knew this one. Yay! So.....in studying some notes I had taken this year, and looking in my own Bible and searching a bit online, I think we came up with 52 verses that will serve us very well! So with that, we are off! Hope you will come along for the ride and memorize with us! The first verse?
Romans 8:18 (New Living Translation)
Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later.
