Are you familiar with “monkey brain”? It’s when you’re not thinking clearly, but you can’t seem to stop it.
You might have monkey brain syndrome if . . .
- You’re constantly checking email and Facebook
- Your mind flits from one thought to another non-stop
- You can’t stay on-task longer than 10 minutes
- You barely remember what you did yesterday
- You never complete one project before you start another
We experience this more often than we’d like. We can’t think of words when we need them; our brains feel tired; we don’t think we can add in one more thing to our schedules.
Capture Your Thoughts
But there is an activity to help us take every thought captive (2 Corinthians 10:5).
Memorizing chunks of scripture can align your thoughts with God’s thoughts.
Now we’re getting ready to memorize a new section of scripture.
If you can squeeze in a 5-minute spiritual exercise a day, several days a week, this memory challenge will work for you.
Will You Pray?
We’re not asking you to decide yet. But we are asking you to pray about it.
Ask God if the benefits would be worth your investment of time and energy.
If you get a “yes,” come back Monday, September 11, and sign up to join us.
We’ll announce the section of scripture then (it may surprise you, so be prepared!). We’ll also give you a collection of free resources to download and print.
Better Together, Never Alone
We will be here with you to walk together on this journey.
But more importantly, the Lord will also walk with us. As I’ve said before, even if we don’t actually retain any of the words we attempt to memorize (but trust me, you will retain many!), the time spent with God is still worth it.
No time in God’s presence is ever wasted.
Why should we settle for a monkey brain when there’s a rich treasure of God’s truths to focus on instead?
