Still memorizing...

I know I haven't posted my verses in awhile, but I am still memorizing two verses a month- through the initial encouragement over on Beth Moore's blog. [For those of you unfamiliar with this, it's a goal to choose two verses per month of the year to memorize, totaling 24 verses for the year.]

I love this habit, although I have found myself struggling to actually memorize these past several verses.

What usually happens is this:

>Find an appropriate (meaningful) scripture for the two-week period? Yes.

>Write it down in my journal? Yes.

>Post it up in my shower, where I'll see it every morning? Uh... I haven't posted a verse since Verse 13. I'm now on Verse 18, so clearly I'm lagging behind.

>Recite the verse over and over again? Not if it's not posted in front of my eyeballs in my shower, I'm finding.

So. I could choose to get very discouraged about this and throw in the towel (Considered. Rejected.) OR I could tell myself that I'm doing much better on the memorizing front than I would be if I weren't doing this, and I am thankful for that. AND regardless of whether or not I know these verses by heart, I am meditating on them and praying through them, [at least initially]. I just may need a few extra months to get them actually memorized. :)

Oh, and at least for the time being, I'm posting the current verse I'm memorizing on the sidebar of my blog.


  1. well done my friend! I am so proud of you not throwing in the towel at this stage in your life!
    Your doing a great job!

  2. Oh I'm glad you're posting them in your sidebar! And oh, Eph. 4:2 is such a good one. I need to intentionally commit that one to memory too.

    You're being so faithful! Thanks for the encouragement. :)

  3. good for you! i love Beth Moore. hope your having a nice Sunday :)

  4. I love what God does with these bits of Scripture when we have hidden them in our hearts. They seem to come to mind at just the right moment. Keep at it and thanks for the encouragement to the rest of us to do it too!
    There's a passage that's been bouncing around in my head and I think getting it down on paper and placing it somewhere visible is going to be my next step. Thanks Stacy!

  5. I can tend to throw in the towel when I can't stick to the original plan. Good for you!

    It encourages me to keep moving forward in some growing committments I made that I have fallen behind in. :o)
