In an effort to hold myself accountable for memorizing Scripture, I'm attempting to post my weekly memory verses again. I plan to choose a verse each week that will help me grow in areas of weakness. Memorizing a random verse works for some, but I need one that is currently applicable to help me with both the desire to memorize and the ability to remember God's Word. I use a dry erase marker to post the verse on my bathroom mirror and practice the piece of Scripture each time I'm at the sink. In choosing a verse, I typically find one in my (intended) daily Bible reading that I keep in mind for the following week, or come across one in a Bible study. You can also find applicable verses by looking in the Concordance section at the back of your Bible or simply doing an internet search for verses in an area that you're seeking growth; for example, you could search for "Bible verses on gentleness." And of course, you're welcome to use my memory verses as your own each week. If you type your email address in the subscription box on the right side column, you'll receive an email with my new verse for the week. Happy memorizing!
