Thirty (One) Days in Psalm 103 for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 31: Remembering His Blessings

We’ve spent a month studying this one amazing psalm. We’ve slowed down to meditate on these blessings that David urges his soul — our ours — to not forget. Many of us have realized in a new way that we really are forgiven, that we really are loved with a steadfast love that is not going to let us go. What can we do to help us not forget? What will help keep us anchored […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 103 for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 30: Catch Up Day and Optional Assignment

I would like to give you one more catch-up day, even though this is supposed to be the last day of our 30-day study. This will give you more time to work on yesterday’s assignment. Then, rather than ending our study on a Sunday, we’ll take some time tomorrow to think and pray about how we can remember and live what we’ve learned. Optional assignment:  Open Biblestudytools and search on Psalm 103. Take some time […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 103 for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 28: BUT

We finished up Day 26 looking at man’s littleness compared to God’s greatness. We saw our lives summarized in two short verses of Psalm 103. We’re like grass, like a flower in the field. A wind blows over us and we’re gone. We’re about to wrap up our study of this wonderful psalm, but we have one more word to look for in the text, and several other words to […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 103 for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 27: Give Thanks

Thirty Days in Psalm 103 for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 26: Man

We’ve read so much about God in Psalm 103. My prayer is that our picture of God is much bigger, much harder to comprehend, much more appreciated than it was when we started our study almost a month ago. What does this psalm say about man? That’s what we’re going to look at today. Assignment: Pray for God’s continued guidance as you study His Word. Then get out the colored pencils and […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 103 for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 25: He Remembers

Today we’re going to back to our notes from Day 22. We’ve seen why God hasn’t dealt with us as our sins deserve. His steadfast love is bigger than our sins. Now let’s look at the next for in the psalm. Assignment: Pray as you start your study. Ask God to help you believe and remember that Jesus has cancelled the debt for your sin, and ask Him to help you continue to learn from this psalm. […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 103 for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 24: Parallelism

Tomorrow we’ll go back to the “fors” we circled on Day 22. But today we’re going to take a few minutes to look at how Psalm 103 is written. The psalms are poems that were written to be sung. Hebrew poetry is different than English poetry. Hebrew and English poetry both use meter to give a rhythm to the words, but it’s not apparent to us when we read the psalms, since […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 103 for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 23: Catch Up and Optional Lesson

It’s Catch-Up Day! Go for it! I can’t believe we already only have a week left in our study! Here’s an optional assignment for those who would like one: Use the Interlinear tools to study all the words related to sin in this Psalm. First go through the psalm and underline with a black zigzag line every reference to sin, iniquity, transgression and any other synonym for sin that you see. Then, using […]
