Living the adventure

A Guest Post by Beckie Lindsey

Katy here. I have the pleasure of introducing you to a writer friend whom I met last year at a conference. Beckie Lindsey loves God’s Word, and I’ve asked her to write about hiding Scripture in our hearts by memorizing it. Here are some practical tips, and I hope you’ll check out Beckie’s blog for more insightful posts.

“Memorizing Scripture is easy!” said no one.

I wish I could tell you there’s a special technique that makes memorizing Scripture easy peasy. But there isn’t (at least that I know of!). Nope. It takes good old fashioned discipline. However, I can tell you it’s so worth all of the effort. Allow me to share how I began memorizing Scripture and how it has transformed my relationship with God and others. You see, as we grow closer to God, the natural byproduct is loving others better. But first a disclaimer: I’m still growing in this. I’m not one of those people who can recite entire chapters of the Bible. Not yet, anyway.

Since last September, we’ve been looking at verses that you can hide in your heart and display in your home. It would be hard for me to pick my favorite topic. But God knows how to deliver grace to our hearts at just the right time with just the right Bible verse. Have you seen Him do that?

How many times have we stood on the edge of the unknown and we knew we should move forward in faith? Has it happened recently to you? We hesitate to enter the unknown because we can’t see how things will turn out. We can’t see the safety net either—God’s invisible hand. Human reasoning tells us to run back the way we came, to depend on what we can see, and to trust in our own abilities. But a still, small voice tells us to jump in faith. We recall how God has helped us in the past. We remember when He taught us to fly.

I can’t count how many “unknowns” I’ve stood before, unsure of what was ahead. But I do remember that each time I jumped in faith, either God caught me or He taught me to fly. When I have depended on Him, He has never let me plummet into darkness. He was the light I needed and the hand that upheld me.
