Bible studies for writers | Psalm 69

Something new about King David occurred to me, and it happened after I read verses 6 and 7, and I underlined the words “humiliated” and “humiliation.” In these lines, David essentially is saying that he doesn’t want his actions to reflect on good people around him. He says, let me be the one to bear… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 69

I can’t help but dedicate every psalm I read lately to Ukraine. Appropriately, the notes in my Bible give this description as the theme of this psalm: “Remembering God’s glory and power. Times and cultures change, but God is always majestically present as defender and provider.” Sum it up: Lord, send them scattering!To every corner… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 68

I absolutely adore the thought of God’s face smiling with favor on us. I love it so much that’s about all I could picture when reading through this short psalm. It made me feel so happy and loved. Sum it up: I love it when I can feel your graceAnd your gaze smiling down on… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 67

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 66

Have you ever been a leader of a team or group? Verse 12 of today’s psalm got me to thinking about leadership today. “Then you put a leader over us.” I remember a professor in college telling us once that a utopian society would never be possible because humans just naturally form into teams and… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 66

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 65

I’m seeing hope today in David’s words. While we sit holding our breath, waiting to see what will become of the world, these words give me hope that we will see sunny skies again. It’s weird, isn’t it, to see the world unite in the midst of chaos … after a plague couldn’t do it… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 65

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 64

“Listen to my complaint.” I complain a lot to God. Well, I wouldn’t call it complaining totally. It’s more like asking why a lot. Most of the times the answer is … just wait. I think we do a lot of waiting in our lives during times of trouble. I think, too, that it was… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 64

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 63

Sometimes I forget to praise God. Sometimes I wake up and don’t even think about God for several minutes, and that makes me feel so guilty, like one of those dreams when I have a baby and forget where I put it. In my dreams, though, I always find the baby, and it’s just fine.… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 63

I think a lot of people are waiting quietly on the Lord these days. What is there left to do? Power, O God, belongs to you. Sum it up: We’ve prayed about all we can pray.We’ve asked about all we can ask.Now, we wait,Almost holding our breathTo see what is next. Power, O God, belongs… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 62

I can’t help but pray King David’s psalm over Ukraine and her people right now. I’m not going to sum this one up. I’m going to type it word for word and wash each of these words over Ukrainian men, women and children right now. Sum it up: O god, listen to my cry!Hear my… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 61

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 60

A psalm “useful for teaching” is how the notes in my Bible describe today’s reading. I can see that. Though, I thought all psalms were useful for teaching, so I thought that particular phrase above this psalm was curious. It is a hopeful psalm, indeed. And that’s all I have to say about that. Sum… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 60
