Scripture memorization

Who would love to memorize 24 scriptures in one year?! Do you read the LPM blog with Beth Moore? They started this challenge. My friend Beth has started a more intimate group.

If you are interested to join a personal group go to my friend Beth's blog and leave her a comment with your scripture.
On the 1st and the 15 of each month you choose a new scripture to memorize, meditate on. You buy a spiral index card holder and carry it with you so you can look at it when you have time. On the 1st & 15th of every month we will all meet up on Beth's blog and comment our scripture. We will get to see what scripture the other women choose.
As I was cleaning my bedroom yesterday I came across my little bible I keep in my night stand. I decided to open it up and what ever scripture my eye falls on will be the one I memorize. It opened up to Psalms....I had a book marker of Tori from her middle school days in it....my eye went straight to Psalms 119:10 "I seek you with all my heart;do not let me stray from your commands".

I have most of it memorized already. I'm really going to enjoy this.

I decided to write my scripture in my food journal. That way I only have to look at one book.

I hope you join Beth & I on this adventure!

I am definitely going to visit Beth and join this group! What a great idea... I wanted to let you know that I'm editing my post because I don't use Neutrogena... I use Garnier Nutritionist Nutri-Pure microbead cream scrub (oil free) and Skin Renew daily regenerating moisture lotion (w SPF 15). I used Mary Kay from the time I was 13 and even sold it for awhile but its just too expensive so I tried this and I love it... the scrub really leaves your face feeling clean.

Last year, I did a study where I memorized verses..AHHH..my mind was so slow...it was awful. It made me want to check myself into the nursing home.

But, memorzing is important and having those verses at hand!
