The past couple of months, I’ve managed to get up an hour earlier to do some of the things I love the most, such as working out, reading, meditating, journaling, and spending time with God. I have been able to dive into the bible once again and have a deeper, more meaningful, and intentional relationship with God.
In the following blog post I’d like to talk about what I do to memorize some great bible scriptures in order to have reminders and verbal commands to share with others.
Index Cards. If you have access to any sort of small index cards, these would be better and more durable to keep around. What’s better about these cards vs a journal? Well, you get to have visual reminders all over your most seen areas.
Car/Kitchen/Mirrors/Bathroom/Room. These are the areas I tend to go to the most, so I tape my cards in these places. Yes, even my car. I put one usually around the dashboard area. If I look at my speedometer daily then I can see my verse daily.
Use pretty things. If you decorate your card or take the time to make it look “pretty” to you, you will most likely gravitate towards it. Why do you think so many love calligraphy and the typography/lettering trend? It makes any bible verse stand out and look gorgeous.
Recite a few times. This goes without saying, but I love to practice saying the verse at least once during prayer and meditation time and during my commute to and from work.
Why memorize scripture? It’s the living word of God. It is fully alive when you say it out loud instead of it sitting inside a giant book. It’s the scriptures that we, as Christians (if you are one) are able to relate to. I love to do this not only throughout the rest of the year, but I take special attention during lent season when my relationship with Jesus is a more in-depth study of His life, death, and resurrection.
I hope these tips inspired you to study this week with me and fill your house with pretty cards and reminders all over your house!
