History of Redemption pt 1

I'm memorizing 7 pages of scripture. I'm insane.
I have down 1/2 of a page. 6 1/2 more to go! insane.
I'm surprised that I'm actually getting it. It's hard. But God is revealing Himself so much in this process and I love it. I actually love it. I love having His word in my mind constantly.
So here is what I have memorized so far:
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  The earth was without form and void and darkness was over the face of the deep.  And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. (Genesis 1:1-2)

Then God said, "Let there be light," and there was light.  And God saw that the light was good.  And God separated the light from the darkness. (Genesis 1:3-4)

And then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.  And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him.  And God saw everything that He had made and behold - it was very good.  And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man.  The man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed. (Genesis 1:26-27, 31; Genesis 2:22,25)

And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, "You may surely eat of every tree of the garden, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die."  But the serpent said to the woman, "You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God knowing good and evil." So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her and he ate. (Genesis 2:16-17; Genesis 3:4-6)
His word is so good. Why don't I memorize scripture ALL the time?! It's powerful.
