Amy Jo’s Scripture Tips

Guest blogger, Amy Jo Becker:
“I have been reading your blog lately about the Word of God… All my life I have been memorizing Scripture, and at one point I thought about writing a course of study on HOW to memorize Scripture. I just believe it is SO important.
I especially like songs that are directly pulled from Scripture–and there are so many–from Psalms to hymns to children’s music to my goofy “Country Collection” of the Scripture Memory Songs series.
Lately I have been listening to the Psalms over and over (I have the whole NIV on CD, so I can just play it while I get ready for work in the mornings) and it is amazing how much we memorize simply by rote!
Another thing I’ve been thinking about lately is the importance of not only memorizing, but simply just dwelling on Scripture.
Matt. 12:34 “For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks.” Whoa, huh? Yeah.
I want not only what comes out of my mouth, but what forms the basis of my worldviews to be righteous. Refreshing. Wise.”
NOTE FROM JEANIE:  On www.biblegateway.com you can listen to the whole Bible (New International Version) on Real Audio or Flash Player.  I highly recommend clicking on Psalm 119.  It is about 15 or 16 minutes long and some of the most awesome prayer language you’ll ever hear.  After the first 4 or 5 times I listened, I definitely started picking up some sentences just like Amy Jo says.  For the rest, I just personalize it and pray it for myself with the Word of God “prompting” me.
