Maybe I’m the only one. But, maybe not.
I struggle to memorize Scripture. If I have a plan and accountability, my chances of succeeding are far better. But, often times, I start out strong and quickly fizzle out. I’ve tried everything — note cards, flash cards, songs, apps…you name it, I’ve probably tried it. So, what’s a girl to do?! In the past, I’ve used this downfall of mine as an excuse to not memorize God’s Word. “I don’t have time…I keep forgetting…I’ll just forget them anyway…” This is what I told myself to get a free pass from not seeking God about it.
The Bible is clear that we need to have His Word on our hearts. In fact, that’s the foundational verse of ETCH…
Dear friend, do what I tell you;
treasure my careful instructions.
Do what I say and you’ll live well.
My teaching is as precious as your eyesight—guard it!
Write it out on the back of your hands;
etch it on the chambers of your heart.
Proverbs 7:3 (MSG)
And also this…
The Word is very near you; it is in
your mouth and in your heart so
you may obey it. Deuteronomy 30:14
Apparently, I wasn’t the only one who felt this tension. My fellow ETCH girls did too. They needed a tool. Something helpful, practical, and easy-to-use. But, not something we had to take out to use and put it away when we were done. That didn’t work before. We longed to have something beautiful that would look gorgeous in our home — enough to leave it out all the time.
The heartbeat behind ETCH is to provide products that will help us ETCH Scripture on our hearts. But, not just for people to buy one more thing that they don’t need. We, honestly, just pray that your relationship with Jesus will grow stronger and deeper every day.
Because of the tension we felt in our own lives about memorizing Scripture, the Alphabet Scripture Art Cards were designed, made and created by our ETCH team. The cards are multi-faceted in the ways they can help anyone in your family memorize Scripture. It can help young children learn their alphabet on one side by associating it with a verse on the other. For older kids and adults, the word association can help you memorize 26 verses! And, they were beautifully designed to be displayed in any kitchen, home, office, or classroom.
