Looking to grow your Scripture memory bank? So am I!
As a busy mom I’ve been slacking in this spiritual discipline, but I long for this to change.
It’s because I’m always on the go that I must tuck away portions of God’s Word in my heart. It’s what I must hold onto when quiet times are rare.
I’m starting small with a collection of 12 passages I curated to align with the months of the year. I also chose these because they highlight aspects of God’s character, so we can behold His goodness in the daily mundane and trouble.
With each set of verses I sought to capture each month’s holidays or seasonal changes, while imparting biblical hope needed to walk by faith.
Lastly, within each passage there’s one short verse that you can try memorizing first.
Do you want to join me? I’ve created and added memory verse cards in my subscriber-only freebie library. Subscribe and you’ll receive the library link and password in the welcome email.
Tape them next to your kitchen sink, your office desk, the car dashboard, wherever you glance often and meditate on them.
Another great way to memorize verses is to write (and re-write!) them down weekly and study them throughout the day – I love the little Scripture Memory Journals from Daily Grace Co. designed for this purpose!
A third strategy is to sing them to your own tune – perhaps with your kids. 🙂
Here are monthly passages below. May the Spirit bring joy, peace, and strength to your heart to follow Christ as you put His Word to memory!
January – 2 Corinthians 5:14-17
“14 For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died;
15 and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.
16 From now on, therefore, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we once regarded Christ according to the flesh, we regard him thus no longer.
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”
February – 1 John 3:16-18
“By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.
17 But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?
18 Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.”
March – Job 5:8-11
“As for me, I would seek God, and to God would I commit my cause,
9 who does great things and unsearchable, marvelous things without number:
10 he gives rain on the earth and sends waters on the fields;
11 he sets on high those who are lowly, and those who mourn are lifted to safety.”
April – Isaiah 55:10-11
“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
11 so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.”
May – Isaiah 43:18-19
“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old.
19 Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”
June – Proverbs 6:6-8
“Go to the ant, O sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise.
7 Without having any chief, officer, or ruler,
8 she prepares her bread in summer and gathers her food in harvest.”
July – Psalm 73:25-28
“Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you.
26 My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
27 For behold, those who are far from you shall perish; you put an end to everyone who is unfaithful to you.
28 But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord GOD my refuge, that I may tell of all your works.”
August – Psalm 119:105-108
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
106 I have sworn an oath and confirmed it, to keep your righteous rules.
107 I am severely afflicted; give me life, O LORD, according to your word!
108 Accept my freewill offerings of praise, O LORD, and teach me your rules.”
September – 2 Corinthians 9:10-12
“He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness.
11 You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God.
12 For the ministry of this service is not only supplying the needs of the saints but is also overflowing in many thanksgivings to God.”
October – Psalm 118:4-6
“Let those who fear the LORD say, “His steadfast love endures forever.”
5 Out of my distress I called on the LORD; the LORD answered me and set me free.
6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”
November – 1 Thessalonians 5:16-24
“Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not despise prophecies, 21 but test everything; hold fast what is good. 22 Abstain from every form of evil.
23 Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
24 He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it.”
December – Luke 2:11-14
“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”
