We are coming to a close in Colossians with only one month left. I don’t have the book memorized and I still have a long way to go but I am thankful to have the posts here to look back on as I continue to move forward. I will leave the Colossians tab up all through next year so I pray if you have started you will continue on in working through memorizing this whole book.
My dear friend Bambi at In the Nursery of the Nation shares how their family has been spending an hour a day memorizing scripture. I appreciated her reminding us how many days go by that we waste hours on meaningless activities. Think how much we can accomplish if we spent even fifteen minutes a day hiding God’s Word in our hearts. Visit her post, The Most Important Part of Our Day here.
Paul Washer shared a story of a friend who had memorized a lot of scripture and Mr. Washer said to him, “I wish I had the gift of memory like you do.” His friend replied, “I don’t have the gift of memory, I just work real hard at it.”
May we all work hard at taking the time to have God’s Word on our hearts and the tip of our tongues so we will “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have”.

I am still with you on this although I haven’t made hardly any progress. I will keep working on it. I am almost finished with a study on Colossians that I did just because I was trying to memorize it. Thank you so much for this encouragement.
Thank you Judith it is encouraging to know someone is still with me :). Doorposts has a study going on this month on Colossians 3 that I have been going through and really benefiting from. Love the look of your blog. Hope is all is well with you and your family. Much love, Marci
