Update: I am looking over at the LPM blog and I keep looking at other peoples verses and say, ” Yea, that’s a good one, I could have added it to the list..its amazing how much scripture you realize you already do know when someone lays it out for you on a platter!
The thing I want to add here though about memorizing scripture; when you start to…you don’t realize it, but you actually start applying them to your life, and it really does change your perspective on how you view the world…So don’t fear it:) Just try it!
I love you O Lord, my strength,
The Lord is my rock my fortress my
my God is my rock in whom I take refuge.
He is my shield and my horn of my
salvation, my stronghold. I call to the Lord who is worthy of praise,
and I am saved from my enemies.
Hey there! Happy 2009!!!!!!!!!
If you are someone who did not make a New Years Resolution…well, one healthy one you might try is scripture memorization:)
The LPM Blogwith our own Beth Moore has presented a challenge to memorize 24 scriptures this year…1st and 15th of every month:)
Above is the scripture that I memorized:)Look here for the details:)
All you need is your bible, a spiral index cards, and colorful markers…I bought an extra set of regular notecards so I can also post the scriptures I want to memorize on my fridge:)
I have loved reading through scripture people have thought of memorizing…Phil 4 was one of them, short story…my friend Lisa had me memorize and meditate and that scripture I know well enough that I could jump rope and say it aloud…I could say it underwater…I could sing it from the tops of the mountains…and during hurricanes(which I HAVE)….memorizing scripture it is vital to our lives people!:)
Most scripture I memorized from listening to songs: Avalon, FFH, Watermark, Nichole Nordeman, Third Day, Rebecca St. James, CeCe Winans, Amy Grant, Newsboyz, Rich Mullins, and of course Passion and Vineyard worship! I encourage you if you want to really memorize to listen to some of their music, or go to their concerts.
Beth Moore and others are great for this too:)
Some scriptures that are great to memorize:)
Acts 20:24(testify to love song comes from),
