Topical Memory System, developed by The Navigators
Topical Memory System, developed by The Navigators here in Colorado Springs, is an excellent tool for helping us to store up the Word of God in our hearts. I was excited about the possibility of reviewing this item because memorization is something I struggle with, and am eager for help! This system includes a 30-week workbook, a vinyl verse card holder, and 60 printed Scripture verses on various topics of importance to a believer such as Living the New Life, Proclaiming Christ, Relying on God’s Resources, Being Christ’s Disciples, and Growing in Christ-likeness. Each verse is printed on eight separate cards, each one with a different translation. The translations currently included in this system are: NIV, NASB, KJV, NKJV, MSG, ESV, NRSV & NLT.
Although I’ve found that for me, writing the verse down myself on an index card helps me recall it better, the idea and goal of daily memorization and meditation is the same. I really liked how the workbook that comes as a part of this system guides the user as they learn to make this a daily part of their life, and as they experience the growth and joy that comes as you treasure of the Word of God. It is very easy to understand, and they offer much insight into reflection on the various topics. By using the approach of 1-2 verses a week and having it on an individual compact card, one will find that it is very convenient to simply review throughout the day. Thank you, NavPress, for making this available!
