Can you think of 10 ways to help you hide God’s Word in your heart?

Maybe you long to write the Word of God on your heart, drawing close to Him as you meditate? But perhaps you find the endeavor hard, if not nearly impossible?

I struggle with this at times, too.

Never fear.

Here are 10 ways to help you hide God’s Word in your heart.

Several girlfriends came alongside me with ideas. This list is the result of their thoughts and my own. Call ’em tried and true solutions. Perhaps one will resonate with you, to help you hide God’s Word in your heart.

Write Scripture Daily

Grab a daily planner. Download the KristiWoods.net “to do” list in the Subscriber Library. (Find the password in the monthly newsletter or in your welcome email.) Write the verse in whatever planner you use daily.

Use a Small Notebook

Jot it down in a small notebook, one that’ll fit nicely in your bag. Jot it once, jot it twice. Go ahead and ink it on there if need be. This is a good way to recite and recall the verse while waiting at an appt., in the parking lot at school as you taxi kids, or on the subway during the daily commute

Recite It

Read it over – and over and over again. Do it from memory, look straight at the words.

Set A Daily Reminder

Grab the phone. Set a daily reminder to repeat the verse once, twice, or many more times.

Create Wallpaper

Why not use technology to our advantage? Create wallpaper for your smartphone with the weekly or monthly verse?

Introduction of Christian blog post on 10 Ways to Hide God's Word in Your Heart. Includes Psalm 119:11 on it.

Sing It

Some verses already have tunes designated. Others, you might have to be a bit more creative than me – because somehow I land on Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star for nearly every verse! ๐Ÿ™‚

Post It

Slap that baby up on the wall. Tape it to the mirror. Attach it to the frig or cabinet.

Create Graphics

Download copies of these free Bible verse graphics on our Free Christian Resources page. (Scroll toward the bottom.)

PicMonkey and Canva, even Microsoft Word or Powerpoint, also offer ways to create your own Bible verse graphics. Make your own on the YouVersion Bible App, OR, grab the ones supplied free here at KristiWoods.net.

Use Index Cards

Oh how beautifully index cards work in the venture to hide God’s Word in the heart. They may be old-style, but they’re still very much in style when it comes to scripture memorization. Grab a magnet and slap them on the desk drawer or frig. Clip ’em and put them in your purse. Or, buy or make an index card box in which to keep them.

Record It

Don’t you love how our smartphones have a record feature? Use it well for the scripture memorization attempts. Then replay it and say it…over and over as necessary.

  1. These are great tips, Kristi, several I’d never thought of. I love how you’re making it multi-sensory. DO SOMETHING: make a graphic, record with your phone. Great ideas!

    1. Funny you mention this, Betsy. Just last night I was mulling over the post in my head, counting out the “ways” when I noticed the same “multi-sensory” component. So many of us are different and learn differently. Thank God He has provided different methods.

  2. Great tips, Kristi. I use a spiral (similar to perpetual calendars) and set it on the bathroom counter so I can practice it first thing in the mornings. Always have my current verse showing and flip through the others to review. Blessings as you encourage scripture memory!

  3. Record it, brilliant! I hadn’t thought of that one, but what a quick and convenient way to memorize. Saying it helps me remember, but sometimes in the hectic moments of the day, the powerful Words get lost in a sea of distraction. Having it recorded there on my phone would be a perfect solution. Thanks Kristi!

  4. I’m a memorization-writer. It helps me so much to write things I need to memorize. That’s what I’m doing for your Psalm that we’re memorizing. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m behind already, though. eek. I haven’t done the 2nd verse yet. — Hey, have you seen Denise Hughes’ “Word Writers” studies? I think I’m going to get one of those to do this year. — Thanks for sharing today, Kristi. Prayers of comfort and peace for y’all. xoxo

    1. I”m with you on the writing, Brenda. Although I must admit that I still know the preamble to the constitution thanks to School House Rock on Saturday mornings. Several scriptures put to song still ring within as well. I’ve not heard of Word Writers studies. Sounds interesting! Thanks so much for your prayers. We’ll take ’em. xo

  5. Thanks for all these options, Kristi! The writer in me wants to grab a journal and do just that. Memorizing after the age of 60 isn’t for the faint of heart.

    And it just makes me really thankful for all that KJV Scripture I memorized when a little girl.

    Praise God, it stays etched in heart and mind forever!


    1. Oh, those verses memorized in childhood are gems aren’t they, Linda? John 3:16 sits solidly within me thanks to a religious ed. teacher. During the day, she was allowed to come into our public school and teach about Jesus – during school hours. Those were the days…
