Back in January, I joined the Revive Our Hearts challenge to memorize one portion of scripture every month. This has been an incredible blessing to my life!
Starting this month, we are going to memorize the entire book of Philippians! It's so neat to see how the Lord works. Last year our church did a study on this book and it was in my heart to memorize it. Back then I just couldn't even get myself to start.
But after 6 months of doing this memory verse challenge, I'm ready!
The end goal IS NOT to fill my head with lots of verses.....but to draw near to God. That's really what matters to me. Just meditating on the same passage over and over again it has been a great discipline.
Along with the challenge I receive a weekly email with encouragement and quotes from different pastors and writers who give tips on scripture memorization.
So....I'm really going to challenge you all! If you've always wanted to memorize a book of the Bible, check out the challenge details here.
And while you are there click on the link to hear the incredible testimony of Janet Pope. She came to our church once in Chicago and beautiful recited the entire book of Ephesians. She is truly inspiring!
