Intention Living


Don’t you love this? Wouldn’t it make a wonderful blog header?

It was posted by Intentional Living on Facebook. (Intentional Living is my FAVORITE talk radio!)

 This is what was written under it:

It is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” 1 Peter 1:16 NIV

I’ve made it to the 2nd day of SSMT, which is the brainchild of Beth Moore at Living Proof, allowed God to create through her.

Beth doesn’t seem to want the glory for what she does. From what I can tell (I just finished downloading and listening to all nine sessions of The Inheritance) she is very sincere, a woman of God. His vessel.

If you’ve never heard, met or seen Beth Moore (and for some reason I hadn’t until last summer) here’s my description of her–She’s like a Texas Cowboy Cheerleader who’s channeling God.

I’m not trying to be irreverent or disrespectful, but Ms. Moore is from Texas and she has all the verve and enthusiasm of a world-class cheerleader, and she lives her life for God.

Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did. – 1 John 2:6

From what I’ve seen and heard, Beth does.

Today is January 15th, so it’s time to go to her blog and put in my memory verse: I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, have the power along with all the saints to grasp how deep and long and wide is the love of Christ. Eph. 3:18 NIV

Okay, I can never remember which comes first–long, deep or wide, but I’ve got the gist, and that’s what matters. Right?

I’ll also be telling her what my next verse is. It’s one that I badly need to learn–Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult but with blessing, because to this you were called that you might inherit a blessing. 1 Peter 3:9 NIV

It’s a tough rule, and I’m very sure without Help, I can’t do it, but with this verse memorized, I’ll have a much better chance of obeying it.

Won’t I?

If you haven’t started SSMT, it’s not too late. (You know what they say, it’s NEVER too late.) Jump on over to the Living Proof website and click on Blog.

God might speak to you, too.
