Romans 3:23 (NLT) — 23 For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.

John 3:16 (NLT) — 16 “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.

John 1:14 (NLT) — 14 So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.

John 1:1 (NLT) — 1 In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Genesis 1:1 (NLT) — 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Here are all of our memory verses so far. How are you doing? Do you have them all memorized? I repeat them everyday to keep them fresh in my mind. Sometimes I do it a couple times a day. Also I may stop and pray at one of the verses. I ask him to create his perfect day for me. To create in me a clean heart, an ability to love him more, a better understanding of scripture, etc. I praise him that he is God and that no one can take his place. I thank him for his unfailing love and faithfulness to me. I stop and ask him to give me a better understanding of his love that I might know him better and appreciate him more. I praise him for his perfection and thank him for forgiving me of my imperfections.

In this way I use the verses to stay in fellowship with the Holy Spirit who inspired these verses. I find that praying these scriptures helps me to be at ease in my day. I also discovered that it brings rest to my soul and steadies my faith in  the Lord.

Anybody want to weigh in on your experience so far with these verses? Or do you have some insight on one of the verses that you would like to share? What you have to say will probably encourage all of us to continue memorizing.

Be Inspired Hilltop! And thank you for tuning in:)

    One thing that is making memorization harder is that I am more familiar with the verses in another traslation.
