Beginning of the journey...

     The purpose of this immersion will be to show the importance of studying God’s word and how that affects a person. I will memorize one Bible verse each day of the thirty days and meditate on that verse. I plan to communicate the process of change in my life that I anticipate. I want to share this so that you can see the results of God’s word, and can be provoked get involved as well.

     "How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word. With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments! I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you." Psalm 119:9-11

     This is the first day of memorizing one verse each day for 30 days!! Psalm 119:9-11 speaks volumes to me because David shows, through this psalm, his love and passion for God's word. He was known as a man after God's own heart. My hope for this immersion is to "guard my way according to God's word." I too want to be a man after God’s heart. This will be a difficult journey and I realize I have to be dedicated. 

My hope is that you will join me by following my journey and responding to my posts.

What do you think about this passage?


  1. This is cool Lem! Thanks for the inspiration! The Corenflos family are doing this with you!

  2. (Hope this posts this time) More Word=less sin. Following you on the journey.

  3. Excited to hear about your journey in God's word and the life changing effects of meditation. Hope others will join you. Count me in—D.

  4. this makes me smile...even having the will and the heart to be a man after God's own heart must make God smile too. We need more men after God's own heart! Way to go Lem,

  5. Paul, who certainly had a relationship with God, said, "I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, and be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: that I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." Love you, Paps
