Scripture Sunday...

Sunday, November 6, 2011

Here's a beautiful promise:

Psalms 32:7

"You are my hiding place; 
you will protect me from trouble 
and surround me with songs of deliverance." 

When I was a little girl growing up hearing my father preach, he once devoted every Wednesday Night Bible Study to the book of Psalms.

One Psalm, every Wednesday. 
Of course, he split Psalms 119 into sections.
I don't know how long this took for him to 
"Preach his way through the Psalms"
But I do remember enjoying these sermons. 

My father gave me his sermon books on Psalms
a few months before he passed away.

They now sit in my library and I love to open them up and read them and picture my dad studying for hours over the sermons he wrote.


I remember my father explaining the meaning of this word 
found so frequently in the book of Psalms.

He simply said, "Think on that."

Oh, I've heard other explanations of the word,
but I still like the one I learned from my father.

Today's a perfect day to pick up our Bibles
and find a portion of scripture to read
and simply, 
"Think on that."

Enjoy your Sunday!


  1. This book is a most precious possession ~ words from your dad and from your Heavenly Father.

  2. What a great promise! and I like your fathers interpretation on Selah. So often we read, but don't think.

  3. What a treasure you have Lois. I also like that he taught Psalms on Wednesdays, I love Psalms and Proverbs.
    Enjoy your day.

  4. Oh Lois how wonderful that he left you such a treasure. I love it. And I love the Psalms....not many days go by that I don't find myself reading sooo many of them. Have a good day!

  5. So beautiful, Lois. I know you recognize how mightily blessed you are to have the powerful legacy of your father and your mother, but I still had to say it.

  6. Beautiful. I've never heard Selah described quite like that, but I like it!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me sweet comments.

  7. How wonderful for you to have such a treasure! I love reading in Psalms. Have a great day!

  8. You are so blessed to have had both a father at home AND a father who valued the word of God. Precious. I would love that treasure, and am so glad you shared it with us in the blogosphere.

  9. I love reading Psalms...and how wonderful to have your fathers work! :D

  10. Nice post thanks for sharing...God bless you

  11. WOW - what a priceless treasure you have in those sermon notes!! for many many reasons:) I am going to remember that - Think on That! I haven't heard that one but I really like it. Hope it was a great weekend for you.

  12. This book of sermon notes from your dad is such a treasure. My husband's dad was a pastor, too, and, when he passed, my husband got his sermon notes. Right now they are all loose, stored in a box, but we started putting them together in a scrapbook, so they can be easily looked at and reread. What a priceless treasure!

  13. What a truly lovely post and what wonderful memores of your father. I hope you have a great week!
    Take care my friend, Carol

  14. Talk about a priceless treasure, Lori...what a blessing!

  15. This brought tears to my eyes. What a rich family heritage you have.
