Everyone needs a little inspiration and direction throughout the day. Keeping God at the forefront will help us survive the change from summer freedom and will keep our focus and mind on what is important. I’ve been working on memorizing scripture, which is not my forte. However, when I made it a family goal, the accountability between my daughter and I, made it so much more doable. Here are thirty verses we plan to memorize in the first thirty days of school.

Lord, please sharpen our minds so we may know and discern your Spirit more clearly.

Technically speaking, that is 32 verses. But I the last one was so good I couldn’t refuse adding it. I didn’t find these bible verses on my own. I googled. I’ve never been to this site where I found them, so I can’t attest to their purity or doctrine. But, the scripture from the Bible is sound and good.

What are some of the spiritual goals you have for this upcoming year?
