Week 1- Be Blessed Psalm 119 Challenge



Welcome to WEEK #1 of the Psalm 119 Challenge. Read Here, to catch up.

My tip for this week is to cut and paste images into a word document.
Or feel free to draw your own.

Psalm 119: 1-8
(click image to make larger)

Read the 8 verses while looking at the images over and over. Pretty soon, just look at the images and not the words. You will be surprised how much you can remember! I think I might do a different page for the next 8 verses, once I have these down pat. Do you think this might work for you?

This was extremely helpful for me (since I am such a visual learner).


What about you? What insight can you share? What helps you memorize scripture?

  1. That's how I teach my kids scripture! Interestingly enough, it never occurred to me to do that for myself!

    Great idea Traci-

    Have a blessed day,

  4. I better get to it!! I decided I'm gonna learn it in Hebrew...I'll just look at it as part of my daily homework from class. I think it'll be easier for me, as each verse is in order of the alphabet. 1-8 is all the Aleph's :) This will definitely be a challenge!!! Love it!

  9. I was busy Thurs. but have been reading Psalm 119! What helps me memorize verses is writing them out, singing them, or reciting them. :) I love the picture idea!
