Memorization -pt 3

As you have read in previous posts, I have been wanting to memorize verses. The best book to do that out of is the Book of Proverbs! So for the last week, I have been reading the Proverb that falls on the day's date, and have been taking note of the one verse (or the few verses) that pops off the page at me as the one I want to remember.

The interesting thing is I don't seem to remember them very well, if at all. Another interesting thing is I find myself thinking about these popping verses while I am ready to drift off to sleep and can come up with what they are, only not perfectly yet. Is there something to that? Is the quietness of the evening a help to be able to process the Word better? There is a definate advantage in being quiet and getting still when focusing on God. "Be still and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth." -Psalm 46:10

Well, today there were about four verses that popped at me so my brain will have to work overtime on remembering them all. I will share the one that sums them up:
"For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth comes knowledge and understanding" -Prov 2:6
In days like these, how can we not look to Him for wisdom, knowledge and understanding? It is so important to remember that He is our Source.

all very true... i try to remember verses and most of the time i just cant. but since buddy focused on the discipline verse..... i would think about it when i needed it... like when i was running and didnt want to be running... or when i was looking in my fridge and didnt need to be doing that.
..... there are some that i remember easily.... but not many.
... funny how we can remember songs and lines from movies and tv shows... but can not remember the words from the Bible as well.....
