Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 19: Catch Up and Optional Lesson

How can it be Sunday again already!? Here’s your chance to do a bit of catch-up! Optional assignment: You’ve been learning new skills over the past month (if this is your first Busy Mamas Bible study). Look at verse 3 today and decide how you want to study it. Will you use the interlinear to study words? Will you look at cross-references? Will you get adventuresome and try out something […]

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 10: Imagery

Yesterday we looked briefly at parallelism. The main point we want to remember is that biblical poetry makes use of repetition to enlarge and amplify ideas. Besides parallelism, the other main characteristic we see in Hebrew poetry is imagery. The poetry of the Bible is filled with vivid pictures that speak not only to our minds, but also to our emotions and our imaginations. We’re going to look for some of […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 7: Our Part, God’s Part

Isn’t this an amazing psalm? It’s going to be next-to-impossible to limit this study to just thirty days! There’s so much to study and meditate on in these few verses! Today we’re going to mark some other important words that will help us better understand what we read. (This lesson is a bit longer than some, but it’s not difficult. It just requires a few more instructions on my part.) […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 4: Verse 1

We’ve been looking at God in Psalm 91. Today we’re going to look at the first verse of this psalm and what it says about man in relationship to God. The psalmist announces his theme at the very outset of his song, and then goes on to expand on that theme. Assignment: Pray, thanking God for His Word and for His Holy Spirit who helps us understand it. Then turn […]

30 Days in 1 Samuel 25, Day 26: David’s Gratitude

From our first glimpse of Abigail, responding to the young man’s message, until the last words she speaks to David, she has certainly proven her character. The narrator’s judgment of her is validated again and again as Abigail evaluates her situation, acts quickly, and speaks with wisdom and courage. Through Abigail’s action, David is brought face-to-face with himself and with God. Is he really going to exact revenge with his […]

30 Days in 1 Samuel 25, Day 4: Abigail

Much of the Old Testament, including 1 Samuel, along with the Gospels and Acts, consists of narratives — stories of actual historical events. These narratives are like the beautifully painted nesting dolls I’ve always loved — the ones that open up to reveal another smaller doll inside, which also opens up to reveal an even smaller one inside it. In a similar way, the narratives of Scripture are stories with […]

30 Days in Psalm 22 for Busy Mamas, Day 24: Water and Wax

Let’s take one more day to focus on Jesus’s description of His suffering. We’ll be moving fairly quickly and covering quite a bit of ground. Use more than one day to complete this lesson, if you need to. (There’s so much more we could study in this section! It would be a good passage to come back to and study more on your own after we’ve finished our study together.) […]

30 Days in Romans 8 for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 24: Together

We’re going to spend just one more day on verse 28 before we try to fit all the rest of the chapter into 6 (or 7…or 8…) more days. I think it’s especially good to slow down and really try to study verses that we have heard many times and possibly even memorized. It’s easy to zip past a familiar verse and miss much of what God may want to teach us. Assignment: Pray, asking […]

Thirty Days of Child Training Boot Camp for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 31: Doers of the Word

We’ve come to the last day of our study.  I have really enjoyed studying with you all! You’ve finished your review. God has probably taught you many things from His Word along the way, because His Word is “living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart”  (Heb. 4:12, […]
