Memorization Monday - Take the challenge, week one

Our pastor challenged us to either get better at or start memorizing Scripture. I used to be very good at this when I was young, but have slacked off the past few years. I am going to use my blog as a way to keep me accountable in this area. This week’s verse to memorize is Psalm 119:2. Here it is in various versions. Pick the one you would rather use.

Start by reading the verse and praying about it. Then write it down on a 3 x 5 card and carry it with you or keep it in your car. Look at it as often as possible and repeat it whenever you can. Pick an accountability person to say it to at the end of the week. Make sure the person is responsible to actually hold you accountable. If you are so inclined please leave me a comment about how you memorize Scripture and what way works best for you.

Psalm 119:2

Blessed are they who keep his statutes
and seek him with all their heart.
(New International Version)

How blessed are those who observe His testimonies,
Who seek Him with all their heart.
(New American Standard Bible)

Blessed are they that keep his testimonies,
and that seek him with the whole heart.
(King James Version)

Blessed are those who keep His testimonies,
Who seek Him with the whole heart!
(New King James Version)


  1. I remember when we were assigned Bible verses to memorize each week in Sunday School. It was easy to do then, but now? I'm going to study and memorize with you, so I hope you keep posting verses. I think God must have sent you to me! Many blessings to you and your family, Patricia

  2. Thank you, I am glad you are also taking up the challenge. We all need each other to hold us accountable. I plan to post a new verse every week. God bless.


I love comments!
