For the month of January, our Scripture Memory passage at Harvest Jacksonville is one of great hope… of new beginnings… of promise… Isaiah 43.18-19.
Although I usually prefer to memorize Scripture in the KJV or NKJV, I actually memorized verse 18 years ago in the NIV (1984), so I will stick with that translation for this passage:
18 Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
19 See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.
