2009 Scripture Memorization Complete!

The year-long journey I began almost 365 days ago is complete. Last January 1, I embarked upon a scripture memorization challenge with Beth Moore and her "Siestas" to memorize 2 scripture verses a month. I've actually blogged about this twice before, so if you missed either one, you can click here to see the first blog post and click here for the second.

In my second posting, I listed the first 10 scriptures that I memorized to simply give you a taste of what I've been doing and what God has been showing me through this challenge. I'll repeat those 10 scriptures again here but will also give you the remaining 14. It's been such a great challenge to do this. Some sciptures were easier than others to remember, but I've been able to use ALL of them after I started memorizing them. That has been the amazing part! God has placed me in a situation in which each of these verses has come to mind, and I've been able to share them with others as encouragement or even repeat them to myself for assurance. He is so cool! What an awesome God we serve!

I can't wait to begin this again in 2010 and already have my spiral of index cards ready to go. I use this to record my verses, and it keeps them all contained in one place for easier storage and portability. With January 1 still a few days away, I encourage you to think about and plan to do this along with me. If you need further help about how to get started or how to pick verses, etc...just email me (see Profile page) or post a comment, and I'll be happy to help get you started! It's been a huge blessing friends. I can't stress that enough!

"I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you." Psalm 119:11 (NIV)
