Scriptures From Memory

I am three passages into my commitment, and so far, so good. Here's what I have in my heart now:

Rejoice in the Lord always! I will say it again, Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything. But in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally Brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything be excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.

Philippians 4:4-8

This passage was memorized in three separate chunks, over the month of January and the first half of February. I am finding this pace and this commitment VERY MANAGEABLE.

Won't you consider joining me? ;-)
