Today is the fourth of November already. Where did October go? The new year is just around the corner. Things are going to get busy around here shortly.
On the 23rd of January, 2011 I made a fifteen year Bible memorization plan. Twelve books in fifteen years. In 2011 a blogger friend challenged her readers to memorize a whole book of the Bible. The plan was (for Colossians) on Holy Experience, Ann Voskamp’s blog.
So I started in 2011 to memorize Colossians. In 2012 I worked on 1 John.
Why not plan out the rest of my life while I’m at it? Sounds ridiculous in a way, but hey. I had all these books I wanted equally to choose to memorize, so I just made a plan.
At two verses a week, that’s about one hundred verses a year. So I did the math and broke the larger books down into multiple years. That’s where I’m starting in 2014. My first large book.
2 Corinthians has, well let’s just say three years’ worth of verses. The number is daunting. I will be memorizing ninety-six verses, chapters one through five.
There you have it. That’s the plan. I’ll be printing those verses up and putting them in my pocket calendar, and putting them into Scripture Typer week by week. Looking forward to 2014. How about you?
