My Cup Runneth Over

Good morning dear friends,
My heart was so full when I saw fellow bloggers having a desire to grow in their knowledge of God's word. How exciting. Thank you betty for posting as well, you reach a lot more people than I do and for that I'm grateful.

A couple of you asked how we are going to meet or do this. Well, here it is:
1) Get your notecards.
2) On the 1st and 15th of each month we will all pick a new scripture. Everyone's may be different and some of us may pick the same one. Doesn't matter, just whatever you feel led to memorize and meditate on. By the way, if you haven't started and still want to, jump on the wagon. Its only Jan 3rd, you have plenty of time to learn a verse by Jan.15th.
3)Post on my blog the scripture you are going to memorize.
4) On the 15th we can post our new scripture and tell how we did with our first one. During the month if you are having problems or you are so excited because of what you are learning, post about it.
5) I find it really good to pray the scripture back to the Lord as well. It is His word and so if we pray His word to Him, He is delighted.
6) I have a friend that lives in another state and she and one of her friends have been meeting on a regular basis since around 2000 to do scripture memorization. They help each other. So, if you have someone close or someone to talk to on the phone that would like to join you, that would be a great way to learn as well.
7)This is simply an avenue of accountability for each of us.

May God bless each of us for being faithful to be in His word!

I have already memorized my scripture!

I'll continue to say it out loud and read it. Also, like you said I will pray it.

So on the 15th we will comment on your post our new scripture and on our own blogs we will post on the 1st & 15th about it. Correct?

I think I have mine down but I always look back at my card so I think this weekend I am going to write it down in stead and see how I do.

Glad to be joining everyone.
