Making God's Words Our Own

My child, never forget the things I have taught you. Store my commands in your heart.
Proverbs 3:1 (NLT)

Are you ready for a challenge?

I have been promoting scripture memorization for years and the time has come to challenge you. Along with Beth Moore’s Living Proof Ministries blog, I’d like us to memorize 2 verses per month in 2017. You can do it! We can do it together.

Jesus memorized scripture. He sprinkled scripture in His conversations and teachings. He used it to stand strong against temptation, to respond to challenges, and to teach his disciples. He tells us His words are spirit and life (John 6:63).

We won’t become superhero Christians or earn gold stars by memorizing. We’ll store God’s words in our hearts so they come to mind when needed. Verses that provide strength, purpose, peace and comfort will become personal. God’s word can replace anxiety, increase our resolve, and transform our attitudes.

Believe it is possible. Ask for God’s direction. Grab one or more partners.

Let’s join together to encourage each other, share practical tips and provide accountability. If you are interested in joining me in a small group, please email me at We’ll communicate online and those who are local can meet for coffee occasionally to practice with each other.

God’s Word is alive and transforming. Store them in your heart so they become your own. (tweet this)

Will you join me in learning 24 verses in 2017?
