WHAT'S A RETEMORY?

 

The word "retemory" is someone's invention. It's not in the dictionary and we don't know who started it but it's a word we have enjoyed and think it's about time it is introduced to the world. It means "to RETain in your mEMORY". We would often put together card sets of verses (a Bible verse on one side, the scripture reference on the other) that we wanted to memorize (or retemorize). We called them "Retemory Cards". Some of the songs on this CD are primarily verses of scripture put to music and so we call them "Retemory Songs".

Retemories can be very beneficial. The Word says:

Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.
Titus 1:9

How can you hold fast to the Word if you don't know it? When you hold fast the Word in your mind you have power. The Word says in Hebrews 4:12:

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Heb 4:12

If we "Think God's Thoughts" like the title of the CD says, then we are going to have to think God's Word which is His Will. Then we will also do what it says in Phillipians 4:8:

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Phillipians 4:8

You as parents need set the pattern for your children. The next verse in Phillipians conveys our desire for you and your family:

Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
Phillipians 4:9

It is our prayer and believing that this CD will help your children to hear and to do God's Word that the God of peace may be with you and your children.
