As I started climbing the stairs, I recited Proverbs 18:10 over and over out loud to myself. I tried not to look down and kept a death grip on the railing. As I ascended, I was profoundly shaking with anxiety and nearly paralyzed by fear, yet I just kept taking the next step and saying that verse. When I reached the top, the guys were happy to see me, and I tried to pretend I was fine. I was still exhausted, nauseated, and terrified, so I sat down on the platform. It was an absolutely gorgeous day, warm and sunny with a gentle breeze. When you are a hundred feet above the ground in a flat area such as an airport, you can see for miles. The view was incredible. For a moment, I became lost in the scene. Then it hit me. The fear was completely gone. Peace reigned throughout my mind and body. I was wholly at ease, suddenly amused at the concept of seeing the ground far below. That beautiful day in Oklahoma, high above the airfield, I was awakened to the power of memorizing Scripture. "Michele is very clear that the ultimate objective is to change one's heart and life. She has written more than an exceptionally practical how-to guide on the important topic of Scripture memorization. She also carefully explains, in a thought-provoking way, the rationale and motivation for believers to be involved in this practice. Her biblical and theological insights, practical suggestions, and thorough analysis of the reason for memorization are a welcome addition to any believer's library" - Dr John A. Martin, President, Roberts Wesleyan College and Northeastern Seminary
