A couple of weeks ago, I posted a scripture memorization challenge and pledged to post updates on my progress to hold myself accountable. I think it took me longer to memorize these last two verses than it did the first 12. I leave my set of cards on my bathroom counter where I can recite each morning the ones I have already memorized, and then I can meditate on the ones I am learning while I finish getting ready in the morning or as I am washing my hands throughout the day. I surprised myself last night when I recited this verse in my head while putting my oldest to bed. (He wants me to massage his neck and back while he reads each night.) I wasn’t certain I had remembered the verses correctly, but I recited it again while getting myself ready for bed, and I had it memorized–finally!
My goal is to memorize half of a chapter each month, so I am on target. I need to make cards for the rest of chapter one and start meditating on them. If it took me a week to learn these last two verses, I better get started on the rest of the chapter, since February is a shorter month.
My mom, my mother-in-law, and one friend (that I know of) have accepted my challenge to memorize Ephesians. I also have a few friends who are memorizing Philippians this year. What verses are you learning?
