God's guidance6 God's guidance7 good successAYou are not too old to memorise scriptures. Scripture memorisation is one of the greatest investment you will make in your life as Christian. Others have done it, you too can. I will be sharing different methods of memorising the scriptures in this page. So if you are interested in it, bookmark this page and come back for updates.

“It’s all about self-limiting beliefs. The most common
limiting belief I hear is…”I’m too old”.
Initially we also thought that as you go older, your memory
power decreases.
But that completely CHANGED our mind when we met a 74 year old man that could recite considerable part of New Testament.
That’s why we’re really confident that whatever your age is,
you have an enormous power to memorize scriptures.”

8 And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.

5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief. When You make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, And the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand. Isa53:4,5,10
