Many of the tasks that I am assigned at work don't take a lot of concentration. My mind starts to wander and it never fails that I start to worrying and stressing. Then it just snowballs. I spend the entire day worrying and by the end of the day my mind is a mess of mush, my stress levels are through the roof and my neck and shoulders are tense. I finally decided that I needed something else to occupy my mind during the day because I was trying to lower my stress level and I was making myself crazy. So, I decided that I would try memorizing scripture. Any time that my mind was not occupied, and I felt myself starting to worry and stress, I just started working on my verse.
For my first verse I chose Psalm 139. It was a verse that I started memorizing while I was in high school and never finished. It took me about a month even with the head start, but I do only work three days a week, at least that is my excuse, it is NOT because I am getting old.
Psalm 139 (NIV)
your eyes saw my unformed body.
