Hey everyone, last week we shared that when Scriptures are set to music they are really easy to memorize. And to jumpstart your library we gave away 5 Scripture Songs available for download. This week’s Scripture is Matthew 6:31-33.
You can listen to it here:
Here are some more tips for memorizing Scriptures:
Write the verses on notecards, including the reference. Review them regularly, even if you only read them regularly.
Sing the Scripture Song first, then say it a couple times.
Use the “memory palace” technique: I don’t know who invented this, but I use it. Your “palace” can be made of the rooms in your home, or you can make up imaginary rooms.
For each Scripture, make up a picture – for example, for “Do not be anxious,” a DONUT with an ANXIOUS BEE buzzing around on it. Imagine the “Donut Bee Anxious ” say, on the couch in your den, the first room in your memory palace. Each Scripture will have a different picture, located in a different place in the room. Some memory experts suggest limiting each room to 5 “memory objects.” Keep these 5 notecards together with a rubber band. Review the rooms regularly.
I spend a few minutes on Scripture memory first thing in my morning devotions. I have found this to be a really helpful habit.
