Are you wondering what’s next after we complete our study in Psalms 51-100?
First, we will go on a 3 week – end of the summer break! This break runs from August 19th – September 8th.
Our Fall Bible Study will begin on Monday, September 9th. Check back here on the blog Wednesday, August 14th for the big announcement of our fall Bible study. I cannot WAIT to share it with you!
But for now – let’s focus on finishing our study in the book of Psalms.
If you are new here – Psalms is an easy read, so you can jump in anytime! Just follow along using the free Bible Study tools below and be sure to check back here this Friday for a wrap-up of our reading.
If you are looking to connect with a community of women who share daily about their quiet times – join us over on Facebook and on instagram. The sharing has been great! If you are looking for guidance in the color coding – visit me on Instagram. Remember, there is no right or wrong way to do this and not all of our Bibles will look alike.
Here’s what mine looked like for Psalms 86-89:

This week’s Reflection & Discussion Questions
(Leaders: Copy and paste these into your groups. If you do not have a group, use these for a personal time of reflection.)
A dwelling is a place where we live or reside. For those who live and dwell close to God, we experience God as a shelter. We are under his protection, comfort and care.
Some only run to God for shelter when they face hard times. But to dwell and abide with God means to walk closely with him every single day. It is only then that God’s shadow can fall on us. Are you dwelling with God or just visiting him from time to time? How can you walk more closely with him this week and live under the shadow of the Almighty?
Singing praises to God is good. It is not just good to God, but it is good for the worshipper’s soul as well. It frees our spirits as we lift our voices up day and night. At night, we have more to praise God for than in the morning because we have one more day of life experiencing God’s faithfulness.
Do you find yourself singing praises early in the morning? How about late at night, at the end of the day? What keeps you from singing out to God more throughout the day?
The sound of waves thundering and crashing against the shores is loud and mighty. The depths of the ocean are fathomless and when there are storms, no man can stop the raging seas. The ocean holds many dangers and pitfalls just as our life does but there is none that is stronger than God.
God’s wisdom and might is above all that we face in life. How does this picture of God being mightier than the waves of the ocean, comfort you in the midst of your challenges or difficulties today? How does knowing that even the winds and the waves obey God, give you peace?
When the Psalmist’s foot had slipped, it was God who was there holding him up. Perhaps he slipped into fear or the temptation to not trust in God. God’s steadfast love for his people is unconditional and he is there for us, even when we slip up.
When we are feeling weak, sometimes we slip but God is with us and he prevents us from falling into ruin. Think of a time when you slipped but God held you up and write about it below. Give thanks to God for his steadfast love that is daily helping us.
While it is good to worship alone, it is also good to worship God in community. This Psalm emphasizes twice the humble act of bowing and kneeling down to the Lord. He is the King of Kings and above all creation. He is our maker and worthy of our humble adoration.
In scripture, we see many different forms of worship from singing, to clapping, to dancing, to shouting, to playing harps and tambourines (and other instruments), to lifting holy hands, bowing down and even falling to the ground in awe. All of these ways are pleasing to the Lord, as long as we come with a sincere heart of humility. Which of these acts of worship do you practice most? Today when you pray, I encourage you to kneel. How does kneeling intensify your prayers?
