memorize a favorite verse...

memorize a favorite verse. This is going to be easy, easy, easy today.

We all have favorite jokes, sayings, riddles, songs, even commercials or lines from movies that we love and can recite at the drop of a hat. But, have you ever memorized your favorite passages from the Bible. Are you able to recall with clarity and accuracy those verses which have brought you peace, comfort, encouragement, inspiration or hope? If you can - great, now pick another one to memorize. If you can't, start today with just one verse. It doesn't matter if it's long or short. Find the one passage that means the most to you. The one line or paragraph that captures your heart and soul with God's love, power or knowledge. Find one simple verse that you can memorize. This verse, you will find, will feed you when you are uncertain or scared or just having a bad day. Use this verse for strength and solice. I have many, many favorites but the only I draw on the most is: "Therefore do not worry, saying, 'what shall we eat?' or 'what shall we drink?' or 'what shall we wear?' For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. " (Matt 6:31-34)

So, for today I will memorize a favorite bible verse. I will find the passage that speaks to my heart and soul and I will carry it my mind from this day forward.
