Are you a doer? || 2016 SMR

Yes, I have a random post coming soon ;) but y’all, we are entering the 2nd month of our 2016 Scripture Memorization Resolution[also known as 2016 SMR ;]! I’m pretty excited!! In the last month 220+ verses have been memorized by those who have joined me for this 2016 resolution. And it’s not too late for you to join! Sign up and jump right in. →This week I want to focus not only on memorizing the Word in my head but also taking the Words I memorize to heart! It is easy to be a reader of the Word but, as we are told in James 1:22, we are to be doers of the Word and warned that if we are only hearers of the Word and not doers that we are deceiving ourselves! And the Lord tells us that we are blessed when we not only hear the Word but also keep it → “But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.”(Luke 11:28)! So, today, I want to encourage y’all [whether you have joined the challenge or not!] to focus on being doers of the Word!

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20

  1. Hi!! Thanks for the challenge! This is one of the best things we can do!
    I just wanted to share with you something that has helped me with memorization.

    I choose 1-5 chapters of the Bible and read them out loud every day, for 2 months :) It gives you a bigger perspective of the things you´re memorizing and it only takes you from 10 to 20 minutes daily to memorize long portions of the Scripture. At the end of these two months you try to say it without reading and work on details.

    I know it´s not for every one, but if it´s hard for you to memorize, it may really help you!
    Last year I had the blessing of memorizing the book of James, Romans and 1 Thessalonians.

    I hope this may help you, His Word is alive, it´s changed me :)

    1. Thank you so much, Alma!! What a fantastic tip. I never thought about reading out loud for memorization!
      Amen! His word is alive and it does it’s good work in us!! <3
