I had an amazing idea this morning.
Twice a month I try to write something inspiring about memorizing scripture. Part of me feels like my words have begun to sound a bit like Charlie Brown's teacher. I know. Some of you are incredibly kind and love me a lot and want to argue right now. But, what else can I say about this topic? I love the Bible. I think it is important to memorize it. You should memorize it with me. Duh.
So, here is my idea.
Do you want to write a few paragraphs of how God has spoken to you, changed your way of thinking, used you in a situation by memorizing His word? I've been writing about my passion in this for a year and a half, and it is time for your story to be told. Why do you memorize? What victories have you had? What has been your favorite passage to learn? How have you overcome difficulties in discipline?
Oh, I'm getting more excited just telling you about it! Instead of me talking about memorizing scripture twice a month, I'm going to have some of you guest blog about your journey! Brilliant!
I will be asking specific people to share. It doesn't have to be long. But, please don't wait to be asked if you feel like it would bring glory to God to share your story. Any way that we can lift high His great name on this little blog, let's do it!

This month I am continuing to work on 2 Corinthians 4:16-18. I started on the first of the month, but need to keep at this one, as well as the others I've memorized over the last few months.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
What are you memorizing? Post it up, friends. And, don't forget to let me know if you would like to share some words on this subject.
