Scripture Memory

One of my goals that I've had for a long time is to memorize scripture from the bible. I'm always in situations where I wish I could quote a verse word for word, but can only repeat the basic idea of it. I follow the Living Proof Ministries Blog occasionally and they are having a scripture memory challenge for 2011:

My first memory verse for the year is:

"Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you." Ephesians 4:32

Every two weeks we are supposed to pick a new verse to memorize...for a total of 24 this year. We are supposed to choose one that pertains to our current life experiences.  I have this one memorized now and am so glad that I do. I need to focus on this daily. I can be so unforgiving sometimes...of others and myself. I need to forgive daily just as Christ forgives me daily. I need to forgive others...daily. 

I'm excited about the challenge to memorize 24 scriptures this year. And I pray that God will reveal verses to me that hit close to home. I pray that I will be still and quiet long enough and immerse my self in his Word long enough to hear his voice. 


  1. Hey friend, I am doing this too! Doing Isaiah 33:2 " Oh Lord, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress." Hope you can finish it out - me too!

  2. Hi Jackie! It's nice to meet you. I hope we cross paths soon!
