“I have stored up your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.”(Psalm 119:11 ESV)
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns, and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”(Colossians 3:16 ESV)
I am starting a new thing. A friend told me about Scripture Writing. So, being the curious person I can be, I looked it up. What is Scripture Writing, you ask? Let me tell you what I found online:
According to google, “Scripture writing is a practice where you write out Bible verses or passages by hand. It’s not just copying words but meditating on the Scripture and letting it sink deep into your heart.”
Why do people do it? I’m glad you asked. Again, according to google there are three reasons:
1. “Meditation and Reflection: writing something down can help you to think about its meaning more deeply. When you write out a Bible verse, you might find new insights or understanding you hadn’t seen before.”
2. “Memorization: Writing verses can also be a helpful tool if you’re trying to memorize them.”
3. “Connection with God: spending time writing Scripture can be a form of worship, helping you connect with God on a personal level.”
I started yesterday. As I was pondering on which verse to start with, John 3:16 popped into my head. I wrote the verse in the notebook I got specially for this project. Then I thought about it for a while and then wrote my thoughts down. No, you can’t see what I wrote. That’s personal, sorry.
I suggest you try it. It might draw you closer to God. There are even scriptures that talk about memorizing scriptures. I really hope you try it. I hope that if you do, it helps you.
Have a blessed day, everyone.
