Bible Reading Plan for December (Blogging Through the Bible)

Psalms Reading Plan

Wow, can you believe we are already in the month of December?! This month as we seek to keep Christ in Christmas, let's be sure that we don't become so busy that we neglect to spend time in the Word of God. Please join me as we continue to read in the book of Psalms in December.

We will read in Psalms until December 19th when we will break for Christmas until January 5th. Courtney Joseph, over at Women Living Well, home of Good Morning Girls, has some exciting things planned for us in the New Year, so stay tuned to her blog for more details. I'll also be sure to keep you updated here at Grace-Filled-Moments too.

Here is a bookmark for your Bible that you can print off for our reading this month:

Here is this week's reading plan:

Today we are reading Psalm 8. What were your thoughts on this Psalm? Please share with me in the comments below.

Psalm 8

Scripture: Psalm 8:4 What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him?

Observations: As David contemplates God’s creation, he questions why God is mindful of man and why He visits us.

Application: With this being the first day of December, it seems fitting that we are in this Psalm. God, the Creator, is mindful of us. When I look into the night sky and see all of the stars shining bright, I do feel tiny in comparison. I understand what David is saying as I stare up into the never-ending reaches of the night sky. It’s amazing that God created every single star that I gaze up at, and then to think that He is mindful of me. He knows my weaknesses and loves me anyway. He visits me every time I open up His Word and commune with Him in prayer. 

God visited the world in human flesh as a babe in a manger in order that He might save His creation – you and me – over 2,000 years ago. This first week of Advent we focus on the hope we have that Jesus will visit us again to take us home with Him. Hallelujah!

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for being mindful of me and of my need for a Savior. You loved us all so much that You sent Your precious Son Jesus as a babe in a manger, to live in the flesh a perfect life, and to die for our sins so that our broken relationship with You could be restored.  You were mindful of us and did not even spare Your only Son. What amazing love! Thank You, Jesus, for willingly laying aside Your glory to come to Earth as a babe and for laying down Your life to save mine. Thank You for the hope we have of Your glorious return. While we are waiting for that blessed day, may we be intentional to look for Your presence in our lives and to spend time daily in Your Word and communing with You through prayer. It’s in the hopeful name of Jesus I pray. Amen!

I'll see you back here on Wednesday for another Blogging Through the Bible post!

Walking in His Grace, 
***During the month of December I will be doing an Advent study using Jesus: Light of the World, Praying the Scriptures through Advent by my sweet friend, Candace Crabtree over at His Mercy is New. I will be blogging about my time in the Scriptures that focus on light, what God says about light, and praying through the Scriptures that I'm studying as I seek to turn my heart toward the True Light of the world...Jesus...the real reason we celebrate Christmas! I hope you'll join me here every Tuesday beginning tomorrow for Praying the Scriptures through Advent.
