What I Learned from Psalms Chapters 101 to 150 – Reading the Bible in 90 Days

As you know I have started reading the Bible. I have 90 days to complete it and I am reading it with hundreds (1200+ to be exact) of other women. Each week (and even day to day) we check-in with each other on our progress, to pray for each other, and to share our thoughts. How cool is that?

So, I thought I would take each Book of the Bible and share my thoughts, verses, or people that stood out or spoke to me on that particular day. I have been doing most of my reading in the mornings reading whenever I can! The key is to get it done. If you get behind, you keep at it….catching up in chunks each day. The readings have been manageable and I am still praying it stays that way for me. I am currently several days behind schedule, but, gradually, I am catching up.

If any of this has peaked your interest in Reading the Bible in 90 Days, check out Moms Toolbox. I am sure there will be another session this winter. And, if I can do it…..YOU CAN TOO!

In my Bible it gave a list of reasons to read the Psalms. I found this helpful and am going to include it here today. To see the previous listings, scroll down to my earlier blog post from Psalms.

Psalm 103:8 The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.  Good, because too often, I need his compassion, understanding and love!

Psalm 106:1/107:1/118:1 Praise to the Lord. Give thanks to the Lord , for he is good; his love endures forever.

Psalm 111:2-3 Great are the works of the Lord; they are pondered by all who delight in them. Glorious and majestic are his deeds, and his righteousness endures forever.

Psalm 112:1 Praise the Lord. Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who finds great delight in his commands.

Psalm 113:2-3 Let the name of the Lord be praised, both now and forevermore. From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised.

Psalm 118:26, 28-29 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. From the house of the Lord we bless you.  You are my God, and I will give you thanks; you are my God, and I will exalt you. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, his loves endures forever.

Psalm 119:105,114 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word.

Psalm 121: 1-2 I lift up my eyes to the hills – where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

Psalm 130:5 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope.

Psalm 136 – A beautiful Psalm, perfect for praising the Lord and all he has done.

Psalm 139:13-16 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.  My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, and your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. If you have any doubt that you are a child of God, read these verses again and again!

Psalm 142:1-3 I cry aloud to the Lord; I lift up my voice to the Lord for mercy. I pour out my complaint before him; before him I tell my trouble. When my spirit grows faint within me, it is you who know my way.

Psalm 143:8 Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. A favorite of mine.

Psalm 146 – God is in control, not us or other people.  This Psalm reminds us of that.

Psalm 148 – Praising the Lord for all of creation!

Psalm 150:6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.

AMEN!

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the Book of Psalms.  Reading them brought a calmness to my day.  Now that my favorites have been marked, I look forward to reading them again and again as troubles arise, on days I need to be reminded of his love, and on days where I am praising His greatness!

Now on to Proverbs……
