My new goal, well, a goal that I keep coming back to; to memorize scriptures. We live in this age of smart phones, where we have so much information at our finger tips. Richard G. Scott gave a fabulous church talk about the power of scriptures. Love his quote:
“Great power can come from memorizing scriptures. To memorize a scripture is to forge a new friendship. It is like discovering a new individual who can help in time of need, give inspiration and comfort, and be a source of motivation for needed change.”
I’m trying to use my phone for good, and work on memorizing more scriptures. Smart phones can be great tools or horrible time wasters. I love the new LDS gospel library app. I made a notebook titles ‘Scriptures to memorize’. I’ve added a handful of verses to work on. Then, I have them in my brain, ready to recite anytime, especially when the rough moments hit.
The verse above was mentioned at Girls Camp last week. I think it’s beautiful. What is your favorite verse? Let me know, as I’ll most likely fall in love with it, and add it to my notebook. Thanks:)
