Finally a New Year's Resolution

Alright, so I finally landed on my New Year's Resolution for 2013: memorize at least one Bible verse a month. I struggle with memorizing Scripture and I know it's important to do. I just never seem to get to it. I tried memorizing our church's weekly fighter verses, but a week is too short for me. I would finally get a chance to do my quiet time and start on the verse only to realize it was already Friday!

But I think I could do one a month. I really want to take this to heart. I want to meditate on the verse, apply it to my life, and let the Lord use it to transform me.

I need to come up with some fun, effective ways for memorizing it though. Any ideas?

My Janurary verse is 1 Samuel 12:24:

Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider what great things he has done for you.

Perhaps try saying your verse during walks and exercise times. It helped me. Love, RCS

The syntax of that verse is horrible. I tried saying it three times and it tripped me up!

Write it on an index card and read it whenever you can. Unfortunately now with old age memory problems I can't torture myself trying to memorize anything.
