I have to be honest. I wasn’t every intentional in my Scripture memorization this month. It got super busy. I know it shouldn’t be an excuse, but it is. Here’s another excuse that might surprise you – I got a new phone. What does that have to do with Scripture memory? For me, a lot. I use the RememberMe memory verse app to do a lot of review. After I switched phones, I didn’t get around to inputting all my verses into the app. So without my daily reminders at 7am, I didn’t do a good job of reviewing. I did memorize the verses, but not as best as I could have if I had worked on it more each day.
One thing that I love about memorizing Scripture is that it is helping me remember other things more. I’m able to have more of my to-do list in my head than I did before I started memorizing again.
I don’t have anything exciting to report on for Week 14 – 17. I’m still using Scripture Typer to review and memorize the verses. I have enjoyed getting to meditate on the words of this passage. Only a handful of verses left, and then hoping to use the remaining 2 weeks to really get the verses from my head into my heart.
- Start date: Sunday, November 6th
- Finish date: Saturday, March 31st
- Pace of 2-3 verses a week, with a 2-week “life happens” buffer.
Romans 8: Am I Totally Crazy? | Life in the Spirit | Heirs with Christ
Psalm 143: Mid-Month Update | I Did It! | Future Glory
I love your 2-week “life happens” buffer. Because it does. You’re doing great and I’m so excited we’re doing this together.

You can backup the verses of your old phone to a website, and then download them to your new phone (see http://sites.google.com/site/rememberapp/synchronize). By the way, Remember Me is now also available for iPhone, iPad and BlackBerry PlayBook. 🙂
