Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 28: From the Trenches
I want to share someone else’s words with you today, because they so beautifully picture what Psalm 91 is all about. Amy, after waiting in suspense for over two months for a diagnosis, now knows that she has stage 2 Hodgkins Lymphoma. She went in for her first chemo treatment this past week. Amy and her husband have been a source of love and encouragement to me and my family […]Read More →
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 […]Read More →
Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 11: Psalms Are for Singing
While we’re busy marking words, making lists, and looking for parallelism and imagery, we don’t want to forget that Psalm 91 was written to be sung, not just read and studied.

Here are a few musical versions of Psalm 91 to […]Read More →
Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 8: Memorize
Psalm 91 is a psalm we need to have stamped on our hearts. We’re going to aim at memorizing the entire psalm, starting today. Don’t let the thought of memorizing sixteen verses intimidate you. Think of memorizing as just another level of studying the psalm. The Psalms, because they are poetry, are easier to memorize than some portions of Scripture. I think you’ll be surprised, too, at how easily you’ll memorize the […]Read More →
Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 2: God
Today we’re going to start observing. We’ll notice all kinds of new things over the next few days as we slow down to take a closer look at what is actually in the text. What can we learn about God? To what is He compared? What does God say He will do? What are we told to do? What words and ideas are repeated? These are the kinds of questions we will […]Read More →
A 30-Day Study of Psalm 91 Begins on March 1!
We talked for years about traveling to the East Coast with our six children. It was one of those dreams you enjoy imagining but never think you’ll really do. But my father and stepmother decided we really ought to take that trip, and paid for all our plane tickets. So we went! I still remember very vividly our first few hours in Washington, D.C. almost eighteen years ago. If all […]Read More →
