I can’t believe we are nearing the end of January…which means, the end of Mega Memory Month with Ann Kroeker. I have already decided that if I do not get to the end of Psalm 91 by the end of January, I will keep going. God has definitely opened my eyes to show me just how much I can memorize when I put my mind to it! I am pretty confident in the first 11 verses of Psalm 91 at this point! wow!! Honestly, I didn’t think I would get this far! Go God! 🙂
My favorite part of this whole memorization thing thus far??
Praying Psalm 91. By far, this has been the most meaningful thing for me. I have prayed the verses at night before bed. I have walked around my neighborhood asking the Lord to do all He promises in Psalm 91 for our family and for our neighbors. I have prayed that He would cover a dear friend with His feathers, like He tells us in verse 4.
And, for a memorization test for myself, I’m going to try and type what I know from memory here:
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.’
Surely He will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge.
His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day.
Nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but none of it will come near you.
You will only observe and see with your eyes the punishment of the wicked.
If you make the Most High your dwelling – even the Lord, who is my refuge
No harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.
He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.
I will go back later and see what words I missed, I’m sure there are a few. 🙂
The biggest thing that has helped me memorize this passage is SAYING IT OUTLOUD before I go to bed each night, several times. For me, it helps to actually say it outloud, not sure why, but it is working. 🙂
