For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust.~Psalm 103:14 NKJV

This is the first in a series of verses I will be attempting to memorize this year. I figured I would share them here as I try to study each of them so that you can follow along if you choose. Beth Moore is doing a Bible verse memorization project on her LPM Blog and since I’m participating there, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to post useful information about the various verses I’m trying to learn on Leading the Follower. If you have comments as you follow along, please share your thoughts here. God bless!

This verse speaks of God’s mercy and the realization that we are not a mystery to Him. He knows what we are made of, literally, and He is never surprised by the decisions we make or the actions we choose to take or not to take. Our God takes pity on us because He is fully aware of the demons with whom we wrestle and He wants us to learn from the experiences we have while we are struggling to understand how to defeat them. According to Nelson’s Compact Bible Handbook, this particular Psalm is an anthem of praise and may have been written by Ezra or Nehemiah.

When reading this verse, I am reassured that when I make mistakes, He will forgive me. I know that He will stick with me because He made me. The same way I would never be able to turn my back on my own child, God has that mercy on me and I live in the ever-forgiving shadow of His grace. What a wonderful blessing!



My name is Rebecca Benston. I'm an author, speaker, and advocate for women and children. My spiritual journey has led me to many questions about what is right and how to live out the purpose that God has set for me.

I am finding that after considering all other possibilities, there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that without living a life that acknowledges the blood of Jesus we are lost. Yet, there are many who claim to know Him and understand His teachings who spew hatred and look for any and all opportunities to judge others instead of seeking them out to lead them to Christ. The goal of this blog is to work towards removing the animosity that exists between followers of Christ who subscribe to different doctrinal approaches and beliefs about what is expected of a "good" Christian. Also to draw the unbeliever closer to Christ through practicing His love and patience and to help all followers understand that love and true faith cannot co-exist where hate, intolerance and a sense of superiority live.

I also hope to open a dialogue with people from many different religious backgrounds and to work together with followers of this blog to break down some of the barriers to harmony that exist in our society. I hope you will join in the conversation!
