THE JOSHUA CODE | WEEK 7

starting monday off right can impact the rest of your week!
i like to think that for the most part i try to stick to this simple routine: 

first things first:
W O R D  I N 
W O R K   O U T
W O R K  P L A N 
i try to wake up, spend time in the word
get in my workout for the day 
and then get the days work done. 
priorities!

we are on week 7 of the JOSHUA CODE - but if you want to catch up on the first few verses you can do so herehere and here and last weeks two catch-up verses here. take it one verse at a time, or feel free to just pick it up with us this week!

Here is last weeks and this weeks verses:

w e e k -  s e v e n 
All we like sheep have gone astray; 
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquities of us all. 

i s a i a h  5 3 : 6 
. . . 
sheep are dumb
sheep are directionless
sheep are defenseless 
. . .
"Since we find ourselves like sheep - dumb, directionless and defenseless 
(and 'since we have turned, every one, to his own way') God has come to our rescue. 
(The Joshua Code, pg. 49).

"As you memorize this verse this week, meditate on that fact that 'God demonstrates His own love towards us, 
in that while we were sinners, Christ dies for us' (Romans 5:8). 
God does not have simply A remedy; 
He has the ONLY remedy for our sin."
(The Joshua Code, pg 49).

i love what Hawkins says in the introduction of this book talking about the 'Joshua Code':
'The Joshua Code  is a challenge to keep God's Word in our mouths through memorization and to keep it in our hearts through meditation "day and night"'. 
"This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night,  that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success" 
 j o s h u a  1 : 8 

I pray that you continue to come back to the blog for the weekly verses as we learn and memorize scripture verses together and grow in faith and love together!
