GEMS FROM PSALMS

              C.S. Lewis — ‘The most valuable thing the Psalms do for me is to express                                                                the same delight in God which made David dance.’

My fourth hope for your 2017 – an appreciation and love for the Bible.   These are some of my favorite Psalms with my comment.  Tomorrow I plan one more 2017 hope for you.  Guess what it is?  I think you will be surprised.

Chap. 1 – Contrast righteous man/evil man. Which do you choose?
Chap 15 – Characteristics of a good man
Chap 16 – The joy/blessings of being a saint of God
Chap 23 – The most memorized chapter of the Bible – brings comfort and joy
Chap 24 – Read this one aloud. Wonderful.
Chap 25 – Especially vs 1-15. Verse 14 is a  “WOW!” verse.
Chap 34 – For those who desire peace and good things.
Chap 37 – Advice to righteous (fret not, trust, commit, refrain, wait, etc)
Contrast righteous and wicked.
Chap 42 – Relationship with my God
Chap 46 – God is our refuge and strength – He is in control
Chap 51 – Repentance
Chap 90 – Moses’ prayer – full of good stuff
Chap 91 – Well known and loved by many – me, too (personalize v14-16)
Chap 92 – Oh WOW again; especially vs 12-15
Chap 104 – Nature, God’s World – Wonderful
Chap 112 – Delights of those who fear God
Chap 121 – The Lord watches over me!
Chap 139 – God knows me!
Chap 146 – I will praise the one in whom I put my trust! My Hope.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
