#ScriptureBank2016, Week 32

5th Monday
This post may contain affiliate links.

It’s the 5th Monday in August. We’re “off” this week for memory verses, but we’re wholly “on” for encouragement in ways to grow.

Below are 3 methods I use to hide God’s word in my heart.

What methods do you use for memorizing scripture?

I’ll be honest, unless I follow through, the scriptures flutter away. It’s more like they’re scribbled on a post-it that takes off with the wind. But when I follow through, often using these tools, the verses are banked for future use. They’re set to memory, and it’s good.

1. Scripture Notebook

This is a picture of my notebook. (Why do I feel like a 2nd grader at show and tell right now?) 🙂

How to Use a Scripture Notebook:

~ Print the verse/prayer on our trusty printer then place the scripture in a notebook. Verses gather on the left, matching prayers (from the following week) slide into sleeves on the right.

~ Flip through the notebook daily, following the words with your finger while reciting the verses.

Note: The notebook needn’t be this large. The verses glued onto index cards or printed on cardstock then gathered with a binder clip or binder ring will work as well.

2. Write It Out

Welcome to my daily “to-do” list.

At the bottom of each page, a section awaits for the current week’s verse. I simply write it as in addition to the reference – daily. (Ok, so “most” days is probably more realistic.)  Directly underneath is an area to write out the previous week’s verse.

All-in-all, I scribble 2 verses per day – “most” days. 😉 As the week progresses, I try to write more of it from memory with a goal of “all” before the next #Scripturebank hits the blogosphere.

BONUS: There’s a freebie coming…

You know that “to-do” list mentioned above? The i’s are being dotted and the t’s crossed on its creation. I’m making one just for you! A free “to-do” list will be offered soon for subscribers only. So don’t delay, sign up today and look for your freebie later this fall.

3. Investigate How Others Memorize Scripture

~ Blogs

Others often have valid, helpful ideas. Take Lisa at True and Faithfulhere’s a read from her blog. It’s the child’s candy land of memorization ideas.

~ Pinterest

And then there’s this: Pinterest!

(Do you hear the hand clapping, a girl giddy with excitement? I luuuuv Pinterest.)

To make life easy, I’ve pinned ideas from around the blogosphere on this board. (You’ll also find past #ScriptureBank verses pinned here as well.) Dig in, my friend, and have a memorization ball!

Regardless of the memorization method, consider hiding God’s word a priority, okay? Let’s encourage one another to keep trying different methods until we find the one that works for us. His word banked deep in a person’s heart is life-changing. It’s a clear battle win over darkness.

I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. PS 119:11 NLT Click To Tweet

  1. For a girl who never even had scripture memory on her radar growing up, it is flat out a GIFT to have God’s Word so ready in my thoughts. In all reality, it’s probably one of the top life-changers for me. it makes me want even more…though I’ll admit it’s a battle to fight for time and *mental space* for it. <3
