Thrive Pathway Activity 67

Choose and Memorize Scripture Regularly

The discipline of Bible memory has great value in keeping your mind focused on Christ and keeping God’s plan in your thoughts. As you read the Bible or are talking with other believers, look for scriptures that have particular meaning for you. Note them, and use them as opportunities to memorize God’s word.


Psalm 119:11
"Your word I have treasured in my heart, that I might not sin against you."

Deuteronomy 11:18
"You shall, therefore, impress these words of mine on your heart and on your soul; and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontals on your forehead."


  • Make a commitment to memorize a set amount of scripture. Start with one verse a week. Increase the number of scriptures as time goes by.
  • Ask God to help you remember the scripture.
  • Use whatever tool that works for you. You might write the first letter of each word as a memory jogger, or write out the entire verse on small flashcards to review. Just use whatever method works best for you.
  • Make the verse a screensaver on your computer or phone for easy reference and to reinforce your memory each time you see it.
