Tonight was our first small group gathering focusing on Scripture memorization. We spent some time in fellowship, and shared stories of what God is doing in each of our lives. Then we broke off by ourselves and spent time memorizing a few verses of Scripture. It was alot easier to focus on learning the Word with friends around doing the same thing. Afterwards, we got back together and helped each other by repeating back what we began memorizing. This is fun, because you begin to pick up on some of what the other person is learning as well.
Have you ever taken the time to memorize a verse that is dear to your heart? Maybe a Scripture that God gave you during a season in your life when you needed encouragement? If not, I challenge you to take a 3 x 5 card and write down one Scripture and focus on it for a few days. Watch how God will bring new life to His Word when you focus in on it through meditation.
If you are in the Birmingham Area and want to join us, we would love to have you! Please email me email@example.com to get more information on this Thursday evening opportunity.
