A Little Nudge

I enjoyed a wonderful, much needed conversation with a special mentor last night. In our talking, she made me realize that God is nudging me in several areas of my life right now. Sometimes these little nudges are obvious, and other times it takes us awhile to acknowledge them.

I am struggling with a few areas of my life right now, and I am so grateful that I am able to see and recognize God nudging me in ways to learn more about Him and has opened my heart more every day to have that burning desire to shine for Him.

I learned of a great growing activity from a dear & beautiful blogging friend, Amy, of which I admire so much. She has been such an inspiration to me and pushes me to grow in my daily walk with the Lord. I have decided to join her in participating in the SSMT (Siesta (Sister) Scripture Memory Team). I am going to learn 26 Bible Verses throughout the year and I would love for you to share in this exciting journey along with me.

The Bible Verse that first came to mind was one of the most powerful verses I can think of and I hold it so close to me each day.

"God is able to do immeasurably more than all we could ask or imagine."
Ephesians 3:20

I will close each of my posts with my SSMT verse as a reminder to both you and me. I would love to hear some verses that are extra meaningful to you.

I am going to leave you with an excerpt from The LPM Blog who created the SSMT. And stop over and say hey to sweet Amy. Let her know that I sent you. You will love her!

"The hard part is not the start. It’s pressing on all the way through the year to the finish. But, then, like all runners that make it across that beautiful line, we get to celebrate a huge victory that only comes to those who sweat it out. We give all praise and glory to our empowering, sustaining God and sit back for a reflective moment, take a deep breath, and feel His glorious good pleasure. Community will become more and more essential as we realize that, without making a public commitment and running the race beside a host of others in this Scripture memory marathon, we’ll probably fizzle out. There is no doubt in my mind that we’re more successful at this together than we are separately. It’s God’s way."


  1. Found you through BloggyMom. Thanks for posting!

  2. You are too sweet! I am so humbled by your kind words!! I had tears as I was reading this.....and please know, that YOU inspire ME! I love reading your posts and they always leave me thinking and at the same time so encouraged!! I am so thankful we "met" and I'm really glad you are participating in SSMT - I will be praying for you as you join in!
    btw, Ephesians 3:20 is one of my all time favorite verses!!!

  3. Britton, great post! I think I will try this next year.

    This year I started the chronological Bible in a year. A dear friend/mentor of my sister in law in charlotte, started a blog to follow along with the daily readings. She does a wonderful job of adding explanations, research, etc. She started it in 2010 but is going back through it again this year. It is AWESOME! Anyway, something you may like (or want to try next year). My goal this year is to focus on one aspect of deepening my understanding and Faith in God! (and stick with it the whole year!)
