Maintaining My Addiction

Joyful Toon by Mike Waters

During the summer before my senior year in high school I surrendered myself to Jesus and a couple of months later received an experience called the baptism into the Holy Spirit.  These two encounters with the Spirit of God radically changed me and the direction of my life.  When my pastor saw the my new love of the Lord, he took time to show me his Bible verse memorizing method.  I adopted his suggestion and started a life long Bible memorizing program.  Soon Bible memory became a good, healthy addiction.BIble

At age 33 my vision impairment precluded using my eyes to read.  Therefore, I started using electronic devices to read the Bible and I soon started using these same devices to help with memorization.

Now that I’m 67, it’s becoming difficult to read the largest of print.  No problem for my memorizing addition though.  My wife or secretary reads the book, chapter and verse onto a digital recorder.  I use another aid for the visually impaired called a Victor Reader to look up the verses and record them on a digital device. Then I use this recording to review my memory verses.  What a deal—you can’t keep an old guy down.
