    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.

Our Journey – Week 23

Reflection Date should have been: June 8th

During week 23 we continue through
(and are almost finished) the Psalms,
begin 1 Kings & 2 Chronicles and
venture through Song of Solomon!

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 23

As we’re almost finished reading through all of the Psalms – I’d like to share combined charts of prayer, blessings, praise and help from different sources: The Life Application NIV Study Bible, and Halley’s Bible Handbook.

PRAYER IN THE BOOK OF PSALMS

 Prayer is how we communicate with God. Psalms could be described as a collection of song-prayers. Probably the most striking feature of these prayers is their unedited honesty. The words often express our own feelings – feelings that we would prefer no one, much less God, ever knew. But, understand – God already knows them! Making these psalms our prayers can teach us a great deal about how God wants us to communicate with Him. Too often we give God a watered-down version of our feelings, hoping we won’t offend Him or make Him curious about our motives. As we use the psalms to express our feelings, we learn that honesty, openness, and sincerity are valuable to God.

Prayer of:                                                                               Psalms:
Praise to God …………………………………………………………….. 100; 113; 117
Thanksgiving by a community ……………………………………… 67; 75; 136
Thanksgiving by an individual ……………………………………… 18; 30; 32
Request by the community ………………………………………….. 79; 80; 123
Request by an individual ……………………………………………… 3; 55; 86
Sorrow by the community ……………………………………………. 44; 74; 137
Sorrow by an individual ………………………………………………. 5; 6; 120
Anger ………………………………………………………………………. 35; 109; 140
Confession ……………………………………………………………….. 6; 32; 51
Faith ………………………………………………………………………… 11; 16; 23

I hope the above helps those in need of the information – it was eye opening and enjoyable to locate the information! Other points that I focused on during this reading… was 1 Kings 3:9/2 Chronicles 1:10: we may ask for wisdom, knowledge and discernment!

Psalm 119

Psalm 119 is the largest book in the Bible with 176 verses. Every verse mentions the Word of God under one or another of these names: law, statutes, righteous laws, decrees, commands, precepts, word, ways (KJV, also testimony, ordinances), except vv. 90, 121, 122, and 132. This psalm is an acrostic, or alphabetic, psalm with 22 carefully constructed sections, each corresponding to a different letter in the Hebrew alphabet (below) and each verse beginning with the letter of its section. What is more, each stanza has eight lines! There is much repetition throughout this psalm which helped God’s people memorize His Word and pass it along orally, since they did not have personal copies of the Scriptures to read as we do. Remember, God’s Word, the Bible, is the only sure guide for living a pure life. I look forward to delve deeper into Psalm 119 and journal my venture in the future!
