Overview

This inspirational companion to Memory Rescue, Dr. Daniel Amen’s groundbreaking book, is an invitation to discover the healing power of Scripture meditation and memorization as an intentional spiritual discipline.

There is a reason the Bible calls us over and over again to “remember.” Remembering God’s acts, promises, and guidelines for living is essential to a healthy spiritual life. And as part of regular spiritual practices such as Scripture meditation and memorization, it can contribute to a healthier mind and body as well—reducing stress, increasing brain capacity, and even helping to reverse problems like memory loss.

Stones of Remembrance includes:

  • Key Scriptures to memorize and meditate on so they’ll always be with you when you need to be inspired, challenged, or comforted
  • An introduction to the biblical and biological basis for “remembrance” as a healthy life habit
  • Tips for incorporating Scripture meditation and memorization into your life and increasing your memory capacity
Whether purchased as a gift or as a practical spiritual follow-up to Memory Rescue, Stones of Remembrance is a wonderful resource to help cultivate the healing power of God-focused remembering.

CHAPTER 1

REST

On the seventh day God had finished his work of creation, so he rested from all his work.

GENESIS 2:2

It's not a coincidence that so much emphasis is placed on rest in the Bible. God designed our bodies to restore and recharge themselves through sleep. Even he rested on the seventh day (Genesis 2:2). This simple act was important at the dawn of Creation, and it's still important now. When we sleep, our brains actually "clean" themselves. They hit the reset button and ready themselves for another day. Anytime we get fewer than seven hours of sleep, we lessen our capacity to think clearly. Simply put, when our brains don't get enough rest, they start making mistakes. If you want to keep your brain healthy and happy, make sure to get plenty of sleep.

Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.

MATTHEW 11:28

The Lord replied, "I will personally go with you, Moses, and I will give you rest — everything will be fine for you."

EXODUS 33:14

Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

MATTHEW 11:29

You have six days each week for your ordinary work, but on the seventh day you must stop working, even during the seasons of plowing and harvest.

EXODUS 34:21

Be still, and know that I am God!

PSALM 46:10

I have given rest to the weary and joy to the sorrowing.

JEREMIAH 31:25

Youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.

ISAIAH 40:30-31

Remember to observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.

EXODUS 20:8

In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.

PSALM 4:8

I lay down and slept, yet I woke up in safety, for the Lord was watching over me.

PSALM 3:5

Only in returning to me and resting in me will you be saved. In quietness and confidence is your strength.

ISAIAH 30:15
