    “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”
    James 1:17 (NIV)

    I’m just so grateful for Scripture memory and all that it brings to my life. God is so faithful to bring verses to my mind that I’ve written in my spiral and typed into my phone app at the exact times that I need them, whether it’s just to bolster my spirit or encourage someone else. Committing to memorize these verses has also enriched my life by placing me in a community of women who uplift and support one another. It’s priceless and really defies description.

    The Lord gives his people strength, The Lord blesses them with peace.
    Psalm 29:11 NLT

    One of the greatest blessings that I have experienced this year is to be able to share this experience with a wonderful group of women who I have attended Bible studies with over the years. Back in January I asked them if they would be willing to hide God’s word in their hearts and help support each other in the process. It has been great sharing all our verses twice a month. Their love and support is what has helped me to memorize each verse.

    And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew, he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified he also glorified. Romans 8:28-30 (NIV)

    Praise God! I did it, by the grace of God! I prayed that God would bless me with the ability to commit his word to memory, that I might hide it close to my heart. And he graciously answered with a resounding yes. I have a new passion, and have been adding to my verses regularly. yay!!!

    *Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fullfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord. (Luke 1:45, nkjv)

    I got challenged last year to start memorizing more Scripture, and I found this so I did it. It was hard at times, but once I started getting a groove in it, I realized that it was something that was becoming a great habit for me. Constantly looking out for Scriptures to memorize, writing them down constantly, taping them everywhere in my house; it started to resonate within me. I absolutely loved this year, and will do it again.
    Cheers! 🙂

    When I picked each of my scriptures, over the course of the next two weeks, it always spoke to some point of my life that I needed to hear. It was an answer to prayer before I knew I would be praying that prayer.

    Thank you Beth for leading us in this journey. Although I have not been able to memorize all the verses, my spiral notebook has stayed out all year, and every time I go into my kitchen I have a fresh reminder of God’s love. I picked verses mostly from John because it reinforced what I was learning in Bible study. Merry Christmas to all of you!
