Scripture memory – a lost treasure

Years ago, I was challenged by Ann VosKamp, a humble and gentle woman I was fortunate enough to meet and share a meal with at a writers conference. Her genuine spirit touched me deeply. She is not a woman looking for fame, she simply seeks to know God and make Him known.

Ann writes on her blog:

“In making to-do lists to run our lives, why not make time to let God’s Word revolutionize our lives? Because making time to memorize His Word is putting the first things first.

If we fail to keep His Word in mind, we may simply fail.

In the age of Google, who still memorizes God? Are we losing a way of life… and losing our way?”

So I took her challenge, along with THOUSANDS of others to memorize Romans chapter 1, 8 and 12.

Yes, memorize.

It’s taking longer than expected, but I am working through these chapters believing whatever words God hides in my heart will be mine forever. I pray they will change me, shape me, and challenge me the way only Living Words can.

I want to know God. I want to declare His grace, majesty, and mercy through my life.I never want to be satisfied. Never. I want to constantly yearn for more. Click on the Romans Project to open a link to the bible memory group at Scripture Typer AND JOIN!
