” Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”

Welcome to the “Wisdom Wellspring”!  This is a section that is added to weekly with an encouraging verse to focus on for the week and prayerfully memorize it as a treasure in your heart.  The idea for this section came as I was finishing up a Priscilla Shirer Bible study the “Armor of God” and “Fervent”.  In the study she recalls a young mom of 5 who weekly placed a 3X5 index card with a verse on it in her mini-van to help her stay focused as she darted from thing to thing in support of her family and community.  Priscilla recalls the mom stating that at the end of the year she would have 52 new verses memorized.  As I read this testimony I felt the Lord nudge my heart “you can do it!”.  Of course I questioned that at first because “I’m not good at memorizing”.   Then came the prompting of how I could do it with your family and friends.

So the challenge began!   I shared it with my Bible Study class a few days later and even provided the rings and 3X5 cards too.  I was committed and my family was getting a life changing stocking stuff this year!  We would all be filling our heart with a wellspring of the Lords wisdom.   I hope you will join us on this treasure hunt!

Here is the list of verses we will be memorizing.  Each is linked to the weekly post if you are just starting out.  Let me know if you are joining the “Wisdom Wellspring” journey.  I would love to lift you up in prayer.  **You can leave a private comment that will not be posted publicly by stating in your comment you wish to not to be published for public view.  I respect your privacy.**
