We would all love to draw closer to the Lord in 2017, spend more time in prayer, be more active in helping others.
One path to successfully meeting our spiritual goals is to plant God’s truths deeper in our hearts through scripture memorization.
We asked. You responded.
We appreciate each one of you who filled out our survey on memorizing Bible verses this month.
According to the results, over a third of us have tried to memorize a chapter, but not finished. (Never tried: 15%. Memorized 1-2 chapters: 21%. Memorized 3 or more chapters: 26%).
What keeps us from successfully memorizing a chapter? Responses included:
- I’m too tired
- I don’t have enough accountability
- I’m not disciplined enough
- I don’t have a specific plan
- I’m inconsistent with it
- My memory is too bad
- I’m too busy
We hear you.
For our next memory challenge—details and registration coming January 2!—we will be here with a schedule, a community, reminders, printables, and a suggested structure for us to learn the words together.
