The Blessing of Memorizing Scripture

A while back I began using this plan to memorize the book of Colossians in a year. I am about half way through chapter three. It has taken much more than a year to even get this far, much less finish in one year, but I am excited to even have done this much. (I should say that if you are interested in the plan, the problem with not finishing in a year was me, not the plan! It is very doable.) God has been kind to keep me motivated, help me to remember, and bring it to mind when I need it. For example, on this Monday morning, I prayed from chapter three of Colossians that I would have a compassionate heart, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience because the old self has been put away and the new self is being renewed in knowledge after God’s image. What a glorious thought!
