A memorization tip…

     Greg and I are memorizing verses together in 2009.  I am very excited about this, but he pulled out the important but intimidating Romans 3:21-26 for our first verses (for those of you who listen to Greg ever, you will not be surprised by this choice!).  It is wordy and challenging and in my mind I know a mix match of the NIV and ESV.   We are memorizing the ESV.

    I am excited I got the whole thing perfected while cooking vegetable beef soup yesterday.  As I cut vegetables, I repeated the phrases and meditated and memorized.  I am going to start redeeming the time that seems mundane (cooking, cleaning, etc) by thinking on scripture.  What a blessing that time was.  Instead of worrying about something pointless, my mind was turned toward the gospel!  I usually write scripture over and over to memorize it, but I held onto this passage while doing something else.

   So, try it, and let me know what happens!

  1. My mom made me do that for Bible Drill. At the time, I wasn’t keen on repeating words over and over again while peeling potatos, but now I am so grateful.
