A lesson learned – Memorization

So a few days ago my brother and I found ourselves trying to memorize a bible verse:

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭3‬:‭20‬ NLT)”

Now in our effort, we learned a lot.

First lesson:

Education is important. “Mere” reading and writing skills apply to bible reading and understanding scriptures.
We tried to memorize it word for word, but came to realize, if we can’t read it and understand it well, we wouldn’t be able to memorize it!

Second lesson:

Your goal should be UNDERSTANDING and not forceful memorization (or cramming). As I said, when we understood what was written, it was sooo much easier to memorize because the bible makes sense and it flows as it should!

Third lesson:

Keep trying, don’t give up on your memorization. God wants us to have the word at the tip of your tongue at all times!!

And final lesson:

Get a memorization buddy (if you can). It was so much easier to memorize with my brother because whatever I missed, he had it and whatever he missed, I had it.

So don’t lose faith and keep reading the word because it matters.

“Who am I that you are mindful of me?”

The Love of God is like no other and the events in my life can attest to that.

Oh how He loves me.


People wonder why I’m so happy these days.

They wonder why I can show love.

They wonder why I’m so comfortable in my skin.

They wonder why I am who I am.

Well here’s the answer.

It is because of the love of God and the love He has for me.

To some it may seem like a “front” that I put on, but to me, it’s real and it really is real.

His touch.

His comfort.

His healing power.

His reassurance.

Thank you Jesus for saving us all.

That’s why I’m happy.
