True Ministry and Heart Hiding {Week 32}


This is the first of two  Heart Hiding posts this week, True Ministry and Heart Hiding {Week 32}.  By the calendar it is Week 38.   I’m working on Week 33.  Next week we will go back to one post per week.  The goal is to keep memorizing, even if we are behind at the end.

How about you?  How is your memorization going?

This is week 32 of  Heart Hidingwhere we are memorizing 2 Corinthians 1-5.  Paul talks about his ministry.  I love that the reason for not fainting is God’s mercy.

Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;

But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

2 Cor. 4:1-2

The Apostle Paul, as we ought also, ministered God’s Word honestly before God and man.  Not to earn his way, but out of love for having his way paid for him, and his desire to see all men saved.

I am continuing to review  2 Corinthians 1:1-24 and 2 Corinthians 2:1-17, as well as 2 Corinthians 3:1-18.

As I have mentioned before, I have my verses in Scripture Typer, which reminds me to review previously learned portions on a regular basis.  I find that I often need more frequent review for better retention.

Have you been able to share Scripture Typer with anyone?   What a wonderful resource to be able to share freely!

The heart hiding {Scripture Memorization} page has links to all of the posts.  You may want to check it out.  It is located  under the BIBLE tab, which is under the WORSHIP tab, which is just below the header (WordWorks).  The heart hiding page now has every heart hiding post linked to it, so that you no longer have to scroll through them all (and wait for them to load).

If you have a moment to share with others how God is using His Word in your life,

we would all be blessed and encouraged.

The Spirit of the Lord and Heart Hiding {Weeks 30 & 31}


This is the second of two  Heart Hiding posts this week, The Spirit of the Lord and Heart Hiding {Weeks 30 & 31}.  By the calendar it is Week 37.   I’m working on Week 32 — almost caught up in my posting!  After next week we will go back to one post per week.

How about you?  How is your memorization going?

This is week 30 & 31 of  Heart Hidingwhere we are memorizing 2 Corinthians 1-5.   .

Now the Lord is that Spirit:  and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

2 Cor. 3:17-18

What a difference after the death of Christ on the Cross!  What a blessing the Spirit of the Lord brings, as He teaches us and changes us into the image of God.  It is incomprehensible!

Week 31 is a review week.  I am also reviewing Philippians 1-4 from a previous year.

I am continuing to review  2 Corinthians 1:1-24 and 2 Corinthians 2:1-17, as well as 2 Corinthians 3:1-16.

As I have mentioned before, I have my verses in Scripture Typer, which reminds me to review previously learned portions on a regular basis.  I find that I often need more frequent review for better retention.

My Love Is On The High Seas {Julie Fowlis}


More about this in an interview of Julie Fowlis, which speaks of using Gaelic as one’s first language, for those of Scots-Irish descent.    My paternal grandmother’s family is from the Outer Hebrides, and spoke Scottish Gaelic.

Here Julie sings My Love Is On The High Seas in the Disney Pixar trailer for Brave.  The English lyrics below are from YouTube.

English Translation:

On a quiet evening at the beginning of May
When the bat was in the skies
I heard a tearful young maiden
Singing beneath the shadow of the green branches
The sun was setting in the sea
And no stars yet graced the sky
When the young girl sang sorrowfully
“My love is on the high seas”

The night’s dew began to fall
Each bloom yielding softly to the droplets
The wind blew in a fragrant breeze
Bringing life and renewal to each field
The girl tunefully sang her song
Quiet and peaceful like the June dew
And this chorus constantly repeated
“My love is on the high seas”

Day darkened and the stars shone
Setting their course amongst the clouds
The maiden sat, burdened by her sadness
Her singing could not have been more soothing
I moved closer to the young woman
Singing of her love sailing on the sea
Oh sweet was her sad lament
“My love is on the high seas”

The music enticed me
Nearer to the brown-haired maiden of the warm eyes
And she prayed to the King of Heaven
“Protect my love on the high seas”
Her heart was breaking with love
When I took her by the hand
“Wipe your eyes, your love is safe
I have returned to you from the high seas”
