Scripture Memory

Bible I have spent the last two days in Elk Rapids, Michigan, a little town along the eastern shore of Grand Traverse Bay.  The lion’s share of each day has been spent working on my Bible memory work.

I write out the passages I am memorizing long hand on 3X5 note cards.  Then I take a walk [about 30 minutes] to go over the verses repeatedly.  After about a half hour, I return to my study desk for more. 

Late each afternoon I have taken 2-hour walks during which time I take the note cards of that day to go over the verses.  To get verses solidified in the mind and heart takes persistence.  You can memorize about 2 verses a week, if you work at it.  But it’s good to have long periods of memorization, too.  These long periods are very enriching but tiring.

I am in full agreement with the Psalmist who said, "I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you."
