Thanks to all who participated in last weeks link up on Romans 8:25! We enjoyed reading your reflections.

We invite you to participate in the 2nd edition of Verse by Verse.

Every 1st & 3rd Monday of the month we will post a new verse for memorization. As a community of believers writing about the Truth, let us write it in our hearts as well as on our blogs. 

We also want to add more interaction through hosting a link-up of your reflection on the verse. This way you’ll be able to read other Christian women blogger’s thoughts on this verse. We will make the link-up live the 2nd & 4th Friday of each month to give each of you enough time to memorize, reflect on and write about the verse. To read last week’s reflections visit here. We also have an iphone background for you to save! We pray that the word will saturate your lives in a new way through this challenge.

Verse for the next 2 weeks is John 16:24. In context, verses 19-24:

Jesus knew that they wanted to ask him, so he said to them, “Is this what you are asking yourselves, what I meant by saying, ‘A little while and you will not see me, and again a little while and you will see me’? Truly, truly, I say to you, you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice. You will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn into joy. When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world. So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you. In that day you will ask nothing of me. Truly, truly, I say to you, whatever you ask of the Father in my name, he will give it to you. Until now you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.

    I received the email to join the linkup, but I am not quite sure how? Could someone please explain the process to me, and what time do you go live? I am on EST. You can email me at [email protected]
    I am new to this process, so help would greatly be appreciated. Thank you!

    Happy to discover your memory challenge here. I currently am gearing up to participate in memorizing John 15 so I won’t start anything else new now, but I’ll pass along your site to others in our “Hide His Word” Facebook group who might enjoy doing this challenge.
