Whether it’s a year (Happy 2011!), a project, a commitment or a lifetime, I long to finish well.So as I launch Mega Memory Month 2011 (MMM), I start to worry a little.Will I finish well?It’s interesting to look back at some of the the passages and poems I’ve undertaken: Colossians 1; Philippians 2: 1-11; Psalm 121; John 14 & 15; Frost’s “The Road Not Taken” and “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.”I achieved some of my memory goals, but sometimes fell short. I didn’t always finish well.So instead of starting something new, I decided to return to John 15. When I first dove in, I only made it to verse 17 and retained very little.This time, I would like to make it all the way to John 15, verse 27, “And you also must testify, for you have been with me from the beginning.”So, for Mega Memory Month 2011, I intend to memorize John 15.As I refresh my efforts from previous attempts, I will also revisit John 14. The words of that chapter are tucked away somewhere in a dusty, neglected drawer of my mental filing cabinet. I would like to bring it back to the forefront.How about you? Have you announced your intentions at the Mega Memory Month headquarters? Click HERE to head over and link up! As we commit to our mega memorization efforts, let’s turn to “the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father” (John 15: 26) to help us finish well.
