We have only eight more days left of our “Psalms in 30 Days” Bible study.

I am so excited that we have all made it this far. I have been enjoying reading this book in its entirety. Psalms has always¬† been my favorite book of the Bible. When I first started on this S.O.A.P. journey I honestly didn’t think that I would be able to do it. (I know, what faith I have in myself.) But I really didn’t think that I would be able to do this everyday. Between my children, my own business, my blog, and all of my other responsibilities I thought I would fall behind terribly. But I am really happy to say that I am only behind two days. (*smiles* I bet you thought I would say that I was all caught up.)

God has really been blessing me during this Bible study.

I have never done a daily devotional. I have never even spent a dedicated amount of time with God in the morning. It was something that I have always wanted to do, I just never put it into action. I didn’t even know what the purpose of spending daily time with God was until this Bible study.

I notice that my days are better when I begin in His words.

I notice that I am much calmer and that I am better prepared to deal with my day mentally. I take life’s ups and downs in strides. During this short Bible study my faith has been tested over and over again. I have had to deal with a lot of obstacles in the past 22 days and I notice that I am applying His word to my reactions, and the way that I live my life, because of me spending my mornings studying God’s word.

I also love the S.O.A.P. method of Bible study. Before I was just reading my Bible and saying a prayer. I really didn’t study or concentrate too hard on what the Bible was actually saying. I was more focused on just reading. Now, I pray before each Bible study and I focus on a scripture. Observing it and then figuring out how to apply that verse into my life has given me a better understanding of what the scriptures mean. I have even started to use a concordance so I can make sure that I’m not taking each verse’s meaning out of context. I really have taken this Bible study and allowed it to start changing my life around for the better. It is helping me to understand God’s plan for me, and I have come to the realization that even though I think God has forgotten me, He hasn’t.

The best part about this is that I have been reading the book of Psalms to Baby Girl too.

She has been participating in my daily devotions. I know that she doesn’t understand right now how much this will positively affect her life, but she will. I want to teach her to spend a portion of her day with God too, and that starts by her watching me doing it. I am even going to start doing Family Devotion Time with my children this summer.

I think that it’s important that my sons learn how to spend time with God each day as well.

How has God been working in you during this study of Psalms? I would love for each of you to share your stories, your testimonies, or the blessings that He has given you.

Happy Memorial’s Day to each of you.

Please spend it enjoying your family. Tomorrow is never promised, so live today in faith like it is your last to please Him. Say a prayer for all of the soldiers that we have lost, all of the veterans that have been injured, and all of the soldiers who are still overseas in war torn countries.

  1. Your bible study method quite commendable, and I don’t think many people have the dedication you display in gather meaning from the bible and life. It’s really made me think twice about my understanding of the bible. Your right about you’re child. She may not realize it now, but you’re creating a foundation that will be appreciated later in life.
