We all need a little reminding some days. That’s the good thing about having Bible verses handy. No matter how wonderfully a verse has spoken to our hearts before, to read it anew is like reading it for the first time. Scripture seems always fresh and applicable for the moment.
For those folks who may not be great at memorizing Bible verses and for folks who need that gentle reminder of living the sanctified life, there is a way to get scripture where it’s needed most. Here’s how.
Strategically placing Bible verses in areas where temptation or discouragement is most likely to happen, is one way to help survive when the battle rages. Bible verses placed in certain areas around the home, the office, and even on the dashboard of the car, are gentle but effective reminders of how to live a life that’s pleasing to the Lord.
Here are some Bible verses you might use and suggestions of where you might fix those Bible verses. But first, you will need an index card for every Bible verse you plan to use. You will also need a Bible version that most speaks to your understanding. You will be writing out your chosen verses on the index cards and fastening them in specified locations. If you prefer a smaller reminder card, cut the index cards down to fit the size of the Bible verse.

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. (I Peter 3:3, NIV)
When it gets to where you are no longer noticing the Bible verse–like it has become part of the fixtures–it’s time to switch it out for a different Bible verse, or else color the card with bright colors that will attract your attention. Strategically placing Bible verses where they will have the most impact is a beneficial way to get scripture into your heart, help you to memorize scripture, and help you where and when you need the reminders most.
