This week I had the privilege of watching Morgan review her memory verses without me reminding her. She had her packet out and methodically went through her verses. She has enough memorized that it takes her awhile to review. She spent time in her own sweet little world enjoying the quiet of remembering parts of the Bible she has implanted in her heart. I loved it!
One of the reasons I enjoy summer with my family is because time is set aside daily for scripture memory and review. The kids and I get out our packs, review, and learn new verses. I'm already looking forward to that time together. Have you thought about teaching your kids a system of learning scripture? If they can talk, they can memorize verses with your help. If they can read, they can memorize verse with your promptings. What better gift to give your kids than a heart full of God's word?
Right now I'm continuing on is Psalm 95. My memory is hit or miss right now. Sometimes I feel like my brain is so stuffed full that I don't feel like I can squeeze one more thing in. I wish I could tell you it is full of wonderful and glorious content, but that would be a lie. I am realizing that memorizing scripture isn't as easy for me as it used to be. I must be at that age. Excuses, excuses.
Oh come, let us worship and bow down;
Let us kneel before the Lord, our God, our Maker!
For He is our God,
and we are the people of His pasture,
and the sheep of His hand.
In college we sang a worship song that had these verses in it. I can't help but to sing it every time I read these words. "Just the she-e-e-ep of His ha-a-a-and. Just the she-e-ep of His hand." I'll have to get over my cheesiness as I memorize these two.
What are you memorizing, friends? We are four months in. How is it going? Are you still going strong? Have you struggled in consistency? How are you seeing God's word as living and active in your life?
Praying that each of you are filled with power out of His glorious riches through the Holy Spirit in your inner beings!
