Scripture Memorization. It is something I've never been good at. Unless it is in a song, I tend to not remember it very well, OR I remember parts of it, but rarely the address. I've decided it is no longer an excuse and we are going to start memorizing scripture as a family. I'm taking baby steps. I won this gorgeous old window frame with a blackboard in the center at a silent auction when we attended the Burn's Night Supper a few weeks back. I knew it would be perfect for what I had in mind.
I had to move another picture off the the living room wall and hang it in its place. Thomas Kincaid move over! I wanted it to be in a visible location, where the whole family could see it. I'm letting the kids help me pick a verse and then when we get it memorized, we'll pick another verse. This is really helping! Especially the verse above. If I get even one word wrong, I will hear about it from Hailey especially. She loves memorizing scripture! We also try to pick a verse around a topic we might be struggling with as a family.
Not only is this a beautiful part of our living room decor now, I know it is benefiting us as a family as we learn God's Word together. We want to hide God's Word in our heart so we won't sin against Him. That is our goal. We aren't perfect. We make mistakes everyday, but we are so grateful for a loving Savior who forgives and extends the grace we so desperately need. We appreciate the chance to be able to start over again, leaning on the power of His Spirit instead of our own weak flesh. I praise God for the fact that when we are weak, HE IS STRONG!
How about you? I would love to hear creative ways your family memorizes scripture.
