His Word in my Heart

In January I committed to memorizing 2 verses a month for 2009. I keep them in a note card sprial that has gone many places with me including to Alivia's birth! I'd like to keep electronic record of these verses and I'll begin here. The following verses were chosen while I was preparing for the birth of Alivia. I needed His encouraging words to gaurd me against the "fear of natural birth" that is ingrained in the women of this culture and to help me to trust that He perfectly created my body to birth our baby. I should trust that He knew what He was doing!!! :)

Isaiah 30:21
Whether you turn to the right
or to the left,
your ears will hear a voice
behind you saying,
"This is the way;
walk in it."
Philippians 4:8
Finally, brothers, whatever is true,
whatever is noble, whatever is right,
whatever is pure, whatever is lovely,
whatever is admirable- if anything is
excellent of praisworthy-
thing about such things.
1 Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm.
Let nothing move you.
*Always give yourselves fully
to the work of the Lord,
because you know that your
labor in the Lord is not in vain.*
2 Timothy 1:7
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, (or "fear" diff version)
but a spirit of power,
of love,
and of self-discipline.
Romans 12:1
Therefore, I urge you, brothers,
in view of God's mercy, to offer
your bodies as living sacrifices,
holy and pleasing to God-
this is your spiritual act of worship.
Zephaniah 3:17
The Lord your God is with you,
he is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
he will quiet you with his love,
he will rejoice over you with singing.
Isaiah 40:29, 31
He givees strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
...those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Psalm 71:6
From birth I have relied on you;
You brought me forth from my mother's womb.
I will ever praise you.
