How's it coming?
Just wanted to check in and see how the Scripture memory is going!!! We're halfway through the two-week period on the first verse of the year, so hopefully those words are soaking into your minds and hearts. I know Romans 15:13 is working on me!
I've been absolutely amazed at how quickly I have been able to memorize this verse. Even with a bunch of words (hope, peace, joy, trust, hope, power!) that I was originally getting confused about which one came when, the Lord has allowed me to hide this verse in my heart.
Two things that really helped me with this particular verse (because of all the confusing words) are: word pictures and motions. It sound ridiculous, I know, but it's what worked for me this time.
The other thing I've done this week is tell literally everyone I know that I'm really committing to Scripture memory this year and telling them that they have permission to ask me for my spirals and quiz me ... any time. Now THAT'S accountability! And I welcome it.
So ... keep it up. I can't wait to hear how it's going for you!
