Scripture Memory Challenge

I am participating in the Scripture Memory Challenge over at the LPM Blog. We have committed to memorizing two scriptures each month for a year. We start a new one on the 1st and 15th of each month. The first verses I chose were Psalm 119:35-37
"Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight. Turn my heart towards your statutes and not toward selfish gain. Turn my eyes away from worthles things, preserve my life according to your word."
There have been many times during the last two weeks that these verses have been just what I needed to focus on.

The new verse I started on today is Isaiah 33:6
"He is your constant source of stability; He abundantly provides safety and great wisdom; He gives all this to those who fear Him."
I can't think of a better verse to put my focus on while being constantly bombarded with the world's unstability.

I haven't spent alot of time concentrating on scripture memory for a while, so this is a great challenge for me. I like that the focus of this challenge is more on understanding and using the verses, not just memorization.

One more thing...I saw this great tip on Dori's blog for making memorization easier--haven't tried it yet but plan to and thought it was worth sharing.

It's not too late to jump on the bandwagon and enjoy the accountability and encouragement of a huge number of Christian women taking God's Word into our hearts and minds.
