I’m Jealous!

When I read about people who memorize whole books of the Bible, I’m impressed. More than impressed, I’m jealous. I know various favorite scriptures, the Lord’s Prayer and Psalm 23. I’ve been working on Colossians 3 for some time now. Not a whole book, not even a whole chapter, but even so it doesn’t come easy. If I don’t keep at it, I forget what I’ve already memorized. Like Psalm 23 and the Lord’s Prayer, what I memorized when I was young stays with me. But I don’t blame it all on age. For most of us, with today’s smart phones, we don’t have to memorize anything anymore. I used to have all these phone numbers in my brain. Now I hardly remember my own. Don’t get me wrong, I love the convenience of carrying around this pocket-size, super computer with me, but with every technological gain, it seems, there’s also a loss.

One thought on “I’m Jealous!

  1. Good morning Sheila. Yeah I am with you I struggle with the words but realize I still have the meaning tucked in there so maybe it’s not that bad. I have the Holy Spirit, we have the Holy Spirit within us to remind us of Gods love. That’s much more important than exact words. Keep writing, I love your messages. Anne
