    Book Reviews

    I love to read and review books and have a very broad range of genre interests. Reading and reviewing Advanced Review Copies is also something that I greatly enjoy and am always more than happy to do. I express my opinions openly and love to share the great new books and authors that I come across. I am more than thrilled to do reviews for any author and/or publisher.

Prayer  /  Reflection  /  Journal & Bible Reading Catch Up

Come join Our Journeyus to read through the Bible Chronologically – this six day plan gives you Sunday off so that you can have a devoted prayer time to reflect and journal on what you’ve read throughout the week! And if needed – a day to catch up on any readings you may have missed. Please know that you can begin with the 1st of the year or at any time you please (and then catch up when you’re able to – maybe even next year)! May God Bless you as you walk and build your relationship closer with Him!

WEEK 21

The Life Application NIV Study Bible shares a chart – Highs and Lows of David’s Life
“The Bible calls David a man after God’s own heart (1 Samuel 13:14; Acts 13:22), but that didn’t mean his life was free of troubles. David’s life was full of highs and lows. Some of David’s troubles were a result of his sins; some were a result of the sins of others. We can’t always control our ups and downs, but we can trust God every day. We can be certain that He will help us through our trials, just as He helped David. In the end, He will reward us for our consistent faith.”

Highs & Lows of David\'s Life

14 Psalms are connected with specific events in David’s life… from them we can see a growing relationship between him and God. Listed here from the Life Application NIV Study Bible roughly in chronological order:

Event in David’s Life

Reference

Psalm

What David Learned about God

When Saul sent men to David’s home to kill him

1 Samuel 19

59

God is my fortress

While running from Saul

I will glorify the Lord at all times

While running from Saul

56

When I am afraid, I will trust in God

While hiding in the cave of Adullam

God is my refuge

After learning that Doeg had murdered 85 priests and their families

1 Samuel 22

52

God will bring evil people down to everlasting ruin

When the Ziphites tried to betray him

1 Samuel 23

54

Surely God is my help

While hiding in a cave

1 Samuel 24

57

I will take refuge in the shadow of God’s wings until the disaster has passed

While hiding in the Desert of En Gedi

1 Samuel 24

63

My soul clings to God; his right hand upholds me

When Saul’s pursuit was over

2 Samuel 22

18

To the faithful, God shows himself faithful

After being confronted about his adultery with Bathsheba

2 Samuel 12

51

The sacrifices God desires are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart he will not despise

During Absalom’s rebellion

2 Samuel 15

3

From the Lord comes deliverance

During Absalom’s rebellion

2 Samuel 15

7

He is a righteous God who searches minds and hearts and can bring to an end the violence of the wicked and make the righteous secure

Take time … really delve into Psalm 40 which helps us to understand: Doing God’s will sometimes means waiting patiently. While we wait, we can love God, serve others, and tell others about him!

Have a blessed time walking Our Journey through His Word!
