My verse for this semester:
How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, You are still with me! ~Psalm 139:17-18 (NLT)
“God teaches us by this method of repetition through Scripture with good reason: The human mind is incurably centrifical, forever flying off at a tangent; it must be brought back to the great central truths of the gospel, over and over. Our minds must be made literally to con-centrate…Our thinking needs to intentionally con-centrate — to literally circle again and around again around the central thing.
” ~Ann Voskamp, at A Holy Experience quoting a theologian.
