Scripture Memory Round 3

This is a beautiful picture of my bible study friends. Last night we completed A Woman's Heart, God's Dwelling Place -- a bible study written by Beth Moore. It was a 10-week study that we started in the fall (but due to the holidays and general life interruptions...we just finished the last session yesterday). And oh my! If you have not taken that study - it's incredibly eye-opening! It's quite intensive and sometimes overwhelming, but truly, truly, God has opened my eyes to the cohesiveness of scripture. From Genesis to Revelation - it all fits together! I realize that is a pretty basic generalization, but although I have studied the bible my entire life - I have never seen the correlation of the tabernacle in the old testament to JESUS. It's awesome! This study has fueled my faith and deepened my hunger to study His Word.
Okay - I'm a little late in posting my memory verse for the 3rd round of scripture memory - BUT, I already have it memorized so no big deal, right? :)

Ephesians 3:16-19 (NIV)

"I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."

Father God, thank You for Your faithfulness. Thank YOU for your unconditional love, for your Word that is so PERFECT. Continue to fuel the fire in my heart; give me an undying passion to know You more and more. In the Mighty, Holy, Perfect name of Jesus. Amen.
