I keep a digital copy of everything I write on my desktop computer and two separate thumb drives. The thumb drives are home to hundreds of pieces of writing, which represent thousands of hours of work. I do not want to lose them. I also have the work stored on the thumb drives so I can take one of them with me when I travel so I can work on the pieces when I am away from my desk.
These writings are important to me, so I make sure they are safely housed and nearby when I need them.
As important as my own writing is to me, the writings God has inspired through men by the Holy Spirit are even more important to me. So, I make sure that I keep a copy of the Bible in my backpack. I have a version of the Scriptures downloaded on my Kindle and on my phone. In addition, I spend several hours each week memorizing verses so I will always have the Word of God in my mind.
When the words of Scripture are committed to memory, the Holy Spirit can always use them to transform my thoughts and apply the truth of the Bible to my heart. We probably all have books or writings or sayings we cherish and keep with us. Make Scripture one of the books you cherish.
Through the Word of God in Christ, we are “transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:2) through the power of the Holy Spirit.
