Bible memory

Today's blog is about what challenges I am doing this month. I will only go into detail about one here and do the others next week.

Right now I am in the middle of 3 different challenges. Two are clutter/spring cleaning related which I will go into detail about next week. 

I am doing a 30 day Bible memorization challenge for the month of March. It has been so awesome to meditate on God's Word daily and as I memorize the verses, I have found myself learning more about them during my review of them.

The Bible instructs us to meditate on God and His Word, and to keep His Word with us. To keep His Word and lay it up with us in our hearts so that we may not be led astray by false doctrine or distracted by the things of this world. Over and over, we are told to have our minds and hearts renewed and transformed by the Spirit of God, who brings all the things to our remembrance that we have been taught in His Word.

Deuteronomy 6:6
Proverbs 7:1
So many verses to list!

What better way to draw nearer to God, then to think on His Word all day long? We cannot and will not always have our Bible in hand while we are doing our chores, or driving down the road, or in persecution, but we can always have God's Word with us in our minds and hearts by memorizing it!

I have two different programs that I have found extremely useful in memorization. The first one is which also has an app. I like this app because I can add verses to different collections and have them categorized however I want. Also, it is handy for keeping track of how long it's been since I have reviewed a verse, since it is important for retaining them to go back every once in awhile and review even after having successfully rmemorized a verse.

The other program that I have found very fun lately is the memory engine and verse pack at I love the way I can memorize a verse in a very short amount of time using the verse pack page at this site. Also, there have been so many awesome classes and tips and Bible studies and readings on this site that I highly recommend you check it out. Not everything is free on this site, however, but the classes on memorizing the Bible I have taken here, were totally worth the money!
