Where do you find time to memorize Scripture?
Listening to mp3 while commuting to work or school
3 by 5 card on mirror while brushing teeth
Ipod while exercising
Don't eat breakfast until you have reviewed
Call your memory partner each day and recite on phone
Type it to your facebook friend
Forward your scripture passage instead of other email forwards
Waiting in line at grocery, bank, doctors office
Turn off the TV or computer and just do it!
In her book "His Word in My Heart," Janet Pope says
" I have been taking my two teenagers to the orthodontist once a month for the last four years, two years each. Instead of sitting in the waiting room listening to secular music and reading tacky magazines, I often wait outside in my car, going over my verses. You can cover a lot of territory in thirty to forty-five minutes. This is just one example that has worked for me. It wouldn't work with a three-year -old. You will find your own pockets of time as you look for them.
"Time is a precious commodity, with only twenty-four hours allotted to each one of us each day. I am not by nature an efficient time manger, but I have learned to utilize little moments here and there for God's Word. Though two-minute slots may have seemed insignificant at the time I began memorizing, they have added up to an enormous amount of Scripture memorized in ten years. I am now working on my ninety-first chapter. I do not share that to overwhelm you, but to show you that great progress comes a few minutes at a time."
