Every once in awhile God sends me constant reminders about an area of life that requires my attention, in order to align with His Word. Unfortunately, I don't always choose to listen and follow His guidance. After hearing the same message in several places, I'm convinced that God is calling out to me. Now, I have to decide if I'm going to keep pushing that message aside or if I'll have the guts to finally say, "Yes!"
Since my salvation several years ago, I've understood the purpose and vitalness of memorizing scripture (to cease Satan's lies, to help and lead others, and to engrave the Truth on my heart). Yet, I've failed to make it a habit. I've had a couple good runs, lasting months at a time, and then life happens and Scripture memory falls to the side.
If I claim that Christ is the highest priority in my life, my actions need to match my intentions. As soon as I publish this post, I'll head straight to my bathroom mirror to record my weekly verse, Philippians 4:8. Since I spend several minutes in front of the mirror every day anyway, it's the perfect place for me to memorize His Word. If I can make time to watch recorded episodes of Project Runway, then I can certainly make time to sear God's heart onto my own. I encourage you to join me this month in making scripture memory a weekly habit, and prayerfully, a permanent part of your life.
