Scripture memorization. I think it’s one of those things you have to get in the groove of or else you’re toast. Back in the day, I could rattle off verses like nobody’s business. Then I turned 8 and it all went downhill from there.
In 2009, on the Living Proof Ministries (Beth Moore) Blog, there was a Scripture Memory Challenge. Memorize 2 verses a month for a year. I started off strong, faded in the middle and scrambled to catch up at the end.
Having verses tucked in your head that you can pull out whenever you need them? Awesome. Getting to go to Houston to meet a bunch of amazing women I’d only ever known online? Icing on the cake.
They’re doing the Scripture Memory Team again in 2011, and I’m determined to go hard all the way this time. And unless God changes the plan, I’m going to choose 24 verses that talk about his love for the poor and oppressed.
So, I was reading the LPM blog this evening, and Beth is doing something really cool. She’s offering a little spiral notebook to write your verses in for just $3 + shipping.
I bought 2. One for me and one for you. For a chance to win, just tell me a verse that is special to you. I’ll announce the winner tomorrow and get your spiral to you as soon as I get it. (U.S. addresses only please)
And how cool would it be to meet you in Houston in January 2012??
