Recently, I began trying to think of ways to increase my Biblical knowledge and also "hide the Word" in my heart. It's been a weak point of mine, especially when you consider that before marriage, children, mortgages, and little blessings like those entered my life I had bulk passages memorized word for word. I'm not bragging (or pray that I am not, and if so, forgive me), it's just that I long for the days when I could recall the Words of God in an instant.
Then it hit me, I used to study it for hours at a time. I no longer have that luxury and if I were brutally honest with you, I barely have time to read the Word, much less memorize it. I know the first step is to make it a priority. CHECK. So, what else can I do? Even making it a priority I still don't have extra hours in the day. I began thinking, time is short and I want to do this, but how?
One verse at a time.
If I can memorize one verse (or passage) each day, in a year I'll have at least 365 verses memorized! WOW.
I think today I'll begin with reviewing and re-memorizing the 23rd Psalm. I know most of it, but after years bottles and binkies, tag and play-doh, my brain is a little out of practice.
So, please, if you're interested in joining in, please keep an eye out for updates on verse memorization and keep praying for all of us as we strive to draw near to Him.
Up to Jerusalem!
