Bible studies for writers | Psalm 132

Have you ever seen a really good idea turn into something really bad? Of course you have. It happens all the time. Something starts out as an astounding feat or an inspirational endeavor, and through the course of time and mismanagement, it becomes an eyesore or a burden or something to be completely ashamed of.… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 132

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 131

I had to read this psalm three times to make sure my attitude about it was correct, and yep, what I ended up with was … pffft, if only. If only “I don’t concern myself with matters too great or too awesome for me to grasp.” If only “I have calmed and quieted myself.” If… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 131

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 130

If God is not keeping a record of our sins, why should we? Let me direct you to verse 3 of today’s psalm. Furthermore, if we shouldn’t keep a record of our own sins, we darn sure better not be keeping track of others’ either. Sum it up: I am at the end of my… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 130

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 129

I don’t handle mean people well, and I sure don’t like it when their nasty attitudes are directed toward me. It’s HARD to live in that atmosphere day in and day out. Some people do, though. King David was one of them. He didn’t ask to be thrust into the spotlight. He was just minding… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 129

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 128

There are many psalms in the Bible that offer promises no man can fulfill, and this is one of them. Taken out of context, this psalm can be used to harm and suppress others. And that’s a shame because it really is a beautiful psalm full of hope and most likely written by someone who… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 128

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 127

I love verse 2 of this psalm. It took me a minute to get it, and I had to read it several times before I did. But to me it says that rest is a blessing. Accept it! Now, that’s not to say that hard work isn’t essential, but it’s comforting to know that there’s… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 127

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 126

Have you ever been honored for helping someone? It’s a great feeling. And it’s a pretty icky feeling when you put forth your best effort, maybe even sacrificing some things you like, and don’t even get a single thank you much less a banquet thrown in your honor. Then what do you do? Well, I… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 126

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 125

Contentment in the Lord means being content in your heart even when your mind might be racing a thousand different ways, and this psalm just spoke to me about that for some reason. Maybe it’s because I’m feeling somewhat content today. I didn’t say in control or not hysterical, either. I said content. Some days… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 125

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 124

Man, what a question to start this psalm with! I hated ending that sentence with a preposition, but it had to be done. Otherwise, I’d have had to have written something ridiculous like, “Man! What a question with which to start this psalm!” And that sounds pretentious. If there is one thing I have learned… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 124

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 123

I just read some news headlines, so I indeed related to having my “fill of contempt” like the writer of this psalm. However, I have learned not to get so darned angry. I’m not saying some anger isn’t good and helpful, but there is a balance, and I truly believe it takes practice and a… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 123
