Every week our Creative Arts team chooses a verse to memorize. Some weeks it is harder than others, maybe the week has been busy,maybe the verse is longer than usual. I’ll be honest and tell you that there are weeks I have allowed this discipline of memorization to be last on my list and it has suffered because of that.
This week the ladies bible study of James by Beth Moore started up and the very first session, wouldn’t you know, Beth mentioned memorization. To be specific Beth was offering a challenge, to those feeling particularly ambitious, to memorize the entire book of James. But, book or verse, we can use this same anagram of encouragement at times.

Ask God for the ability
Believe You can do it
Increase the portion each week (this can apply a bit more to larger sections)
Determine a set time everyday to practice
Enjoy it!
