I am enjoying my time memorizing the Book of Colossians so even if I am the only one reading this post I am going to continue on for the year. Being able to have the resources at hand in this series of posts has been a help to me and I have been blessed by studying on the benefits of memorizing scripture.
The next area Susan Heck brings up in A Call to Scripture Memory is:
When Should we Memorize Scripture?
The Answer – At All Times!!
“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”
We should memorize scripture when we are doing dishes, showering, taking a walk, driving in the car, cleaning the house, doing laundry or cooking. Our minds truly have A LOT of idle time so why not fill it with God’s Word. It is really hard to sin when you are meditating on the Word of God.
“I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.”
May you be encouraged and continue on no matter where you are right now. If this is the first post you are reading please join in with us and start today to work on “hiding God’s Word in your heart”.

Just stumbled on this site this week, and I am so encouraged! About 2 weeks ago, I purposed in my heart to embark on some aggressive scripture memorization, and since then, I have found so much online that relates to exactly that. And our local Christian radio station had a mini-series talk show on it as well. It just seems that I am being surrounded by encouragement, and being given sound reason, as well as strategies to succeed! Thank you!
Thank you Monica – your posts are beautiful and they are an encouragement to many so many thanks to you 🙂
