1d4cb080-51be-423f-9f63-e4ae66c0dd98ugh!….  I was just post-modernized…I mean, let’s get real.  Do you really know what gets pumped through your little, tiny brain when the news is on?  Um,…Let’s see,..Dali lama, universal health care, fiscal responsibility, Obama peace prize, hate crime legislation, tolerance, bigotry, evolutionary missing link, Limbaugh, Pelosi, another serial murder, corrupt police, absolutely no prayer in school, inclusiveness, zero-tolerance, gun control, and on and on and on…..like a bad computer virus, slowly messing with you mind.  Then again, maybe another movie murder with an ax will help me to relax! 

Rest assured, though, there is a solution.  Serious.  Scripture memorization.  For the unbelieving, It’s a great late night sleep aid.  For those who believe, peace like a river.  Try it.  Start with the one below.  You can do this!  You can have this memorized by Thanksgiving and be on to another in time for Christmas.  Nothing works better for the soul than an exercise in the means of grace.  Let me hear your success stories!

For a more sober and serious look at scripture memorization, check out this John Piper/DG video.

Psalms 139
1 O lord, thou hast searched me, and known me. 2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. 3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways. 4 For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether. 5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me. 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it. 7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? 8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. 9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; 10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. 11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. 12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee. 13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. 14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. 15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. 17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! 18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee. 19 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men. 20 For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain. 21 Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? 22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies. 23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: 24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
