Hide His Word: Psalm 71

My journey started in August 2011. The very first large passage that I memorized with the Do Not Depart community was Psalm 143. I didn’t think I could do it. It had been a long time since I memorized much more than a daily to-do list, and there was lots that I forgot to complete on the list with young kids.

Since that time, I have memorized Psalm 143 (12 verses), John 1:1-14, 1 Corinthians 13:1-7, Romans 8 (39 verses), and 1 Peter 1 (25 verses) (see links below). How in the world did I do that? That’s almost 100 verses! I’m shocking myself right now typing it out. I’m so thankful for the Hide His Word FB group. I love the accountability, encouragement, and inspiration among the members.

We will be hiding Psalm 71 in our hearts for the next 14 weeks. Each time I go through my verses, the words go deeper and I get it quicker, but I’m still not “there” yet. There have been so many verses that I memorized when I was young, that has helped me during trying times. And even now, as I memorize the verses, they speak to me.

Anyone interested in joining me for this challenge?

  3. I like memorizing larger chunks instead of random verses (which I can NEVER remember where they’re found!), but have not been consistent like you are. Way to go… I’ll have to check into that group.
