Our church is studying the book of Proverbs together. Throughout the 9 weeks of sermons from Proverbs, the congregation is reading through 1 chapter a day (which means we will read through it twice). In addition, we were given verses to memorize. Bible memorization is not my strong suit. At all. It comes very easy to my way-cute husband however. That means I focused on memorizing 3:5-6 (which he already has memorized anyway) and he focused on 3:19-26. And by "focused on" I mean he read through it once and then recited it back to me missing, oh, maybe 3 words. Ridiculous!

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and he will make your paths straight. (I typed that out without looking it up, thank you. Memorized verse numero uno!)

Proverbs 3:19-26 By wisdom the Lord laid the earth's foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place; by his knowledge the deeps were divided, and the clouds let drop the dew. My son, preserve sound judgement and discernment, do not let them out of your sight; they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck. Then you will go on your way in safety and your foot will not stumble; when you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you like down, your sleep will be sweet. Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, for the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being snared.
