Some Additional Bible Studies Are Happening!

Would you like some additional guidance as you study your Bible? We won’t start a new live online study until July. (I’m still praying about what chapter to study!) But we do have some other studies happening! For the rest of the month of April, I’m experimenting with a short mini-study of Psalm 1 on Instagram. This is a much more abbreviated sort of study, especially since it is only […]

He Died for My Sin

To help your children understand that Jesus died for their sins, try this simple activity: Nail two scraps of wood together to form a cross about two feet tall. Hang this cross on a wall or lay it flat on a counter or table. In a basket nearby, place pieces of paper, a pen or pencil, a bag of small nails, and a hammer. When the need for discipline arises during […]

Thirty (One) Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 31: Move Into His Shelter

I’m always a bit sad when we reach the last day of our study. It’s such a blessing to study with you all (but it will be nice to sleep at night again :-)). Today we’re going to ask the Lord to sink this psalm deep into our hearts where it will change the way we think, the way we respond to troubles, the way we turn away from our worries […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 23: No Evil

We looked yesterday at the bold statements of Psalm 91:7-8. Thousands may be falling all around us, but it will not come near those who dwell in the shelter of the Most High. Not only will those who trust God be preserved in the midst of calamity, but they are assured that they will indeed witness the judgment of the wicked. Let’s continue with verses 9 and 10 today. What […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 22: Really?

We’ve come to the hard parts of Psalm 91. What do we do with verses like this one? “A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.” And what about verse 10? “No evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent.” They are wonderful words, but how do we reconcile them with the reality […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 20: Shield

Think about the two main metaphors for God that we’ve seen in Psalm 91. He is a fortress, high on a hill, strong, impenetrable, a refuge to run to when threatened. But He’s also a bird, covering its young with its feathers, tender and protective. Timothy Keller, in Songs of Jesus, observes, “It is on the cross where we see the absolute righteous power and the tender, sacrificial love of God […]

30 Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 18: His Wings

(Note: The links in the children’s lesson of the first post today were not working. This version has corrected links. Please discard the previous email/lesson for today.) We’re over half way through our study of Psalm 91, and we still have so much more to explore! Did you think it would be possible to spend thirty days studying just one chapter of the Bible and not get tired of it? The […]

30 Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 17: Trust

God isn’t just a refuge, and He’s not just a fortress. The psalmist says he’s “my refuge, my fortress, my God in whom I trust.” He is the Most High, a high fortress on a high hill, invincible, and ready to protect us.  We can trust Him. Assignment: Pray that God will reveal Himself to you and use His Word to build your trust in Him as you study. Then return to Blue Letter Bible and open Psalm 91. We’re […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 15: A Refuge

Now that we’ve tiptoed into the world of Blue Letter Bible, we’re going to start using a few more of its tools today. The imagery used in Psalm 91 gives us plenty to meditate on as we study. Assignment: Pray for God’s guidance and wisdom as you study today. Then open Blue Letter Bible and go to Psalm 91. Scroll down to verse 2 and open the interlinear tool. (Do you remember […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 14: The Lord

(Note: The lesson for Day 9 has been revised. If you have not completed that lesson, or if you had difficulty understanding the original lesson, you can now go to Day 9 and use the new revised lesson. Thanks for your patience and understanding.) Yesterday was primarily an introduction to Blue Letter Bible, for those who have never used it. If you found it difficult to navigate for the first time, don’t […]
