This is how long it took me to recite The Beatitudes (including a few bumps!). I guess I have no excuses not to keep on going. I now know that I cannot say, “I have no time to memorize God’s Word.” or “It takes too much time, and I just don’t have it.”
I have discovered that what it really takes to memorize God’s Word, more than lots of extra time, is being intentional about it.
“It is my hope that you will discipline your mind to trade your thoughts for God’s. As you give your attention to His Word, He will meet you in unexpected places—amidst the laundry pile and the dish pile, in the car pool line and in the drive-through line. Your relationship with God will grow deeper and richer than you could ever have imagined. He will be your constant companion, your most intimate confidant.”
“Train your mind to run to God’s Word, daydreaming with His thoughts. Practice these verses throughout your day, whenever you can squeeze in forty seconds.”
Janet Pope, His Word in My Heart

Blessings on your weekend, sisters.
I'm with you, sweet sister! Thanks for the encouragement to start another Scripture memory project! Katherine asked me how Isabel is doing with her memory work and asked if she can email her. I told her that she can do that tomorrow, since she was asking at bedtime. 😉
Praying for you, friend! May God's living and active Word cause you to abide more deeply in Him that you might bear even more fruit for His glory!!
