PSALM 91 :: THE SECRET PLACE

Reaching Hurting Women Ministries OFFERS FOUR THEMES FOR study and CONTEMPLATION EVERY MONTH of THE YEAR.
EACH OF THE FOUR POWER-PACKED THEMES are A 12-MONTH study SERIES ASSIGNED TO A SPECIFIC FRIDAY OF EVERY MONTH. IN MONTHS WITH FIVE FRIDAYS I’LL BE REVIEWING TOUCHING INSPIRATIONAL MUSIC.
On the first Friday of each month in 2021 we will be studying Psalm 91. We’ll be learning this powerful psalm and applying its phenomenal promises to our life  one phrase at a time.  We begin today with verse one.

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. ~ Psalm 91:1

DWELL

When we commit our life to God by accepting Jesus Christ as our Savior, we become hidden with Christ in the dwelling place with God the Most High. Here we have a special relationship, where we can live safely protected and secure. When we live from a place of rest and peace the blessings will flow.

The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. ~ Proverbs 18:10

SECRET PLACE

This secret place isn’t actually a secret. Nor is it just for the special few. The secret place is for all who humbly come to Christ… young and old, rich and poor. All are welcome. Dwelling in the secret place allows us to live our life free from fear, in a peaceful rest knowing that God is taking care of everything as we cast our cares on Him.

For you are my hiding place; you protect me from trouble. You surround me with songs of victory. ~ Psalm 32:7

THE SHADOW OF THE ALMIGHTY

Being in the shadow of the Almighty shows how close God is to us. We are so close that His shadow covers and protects us. This closeness represents a spiritually intimate relationship with God our Father.

When we make time to be in God’s presence — pray, worship, and grow in our relationship by reading The Word — we will stay close to our Heavenly Father, safe in His protective shadow.

I pray you are blessed by Victory Boyd’s beautiful rendition of Psalm 91.

RHW 2021 PREVIEW

In 2021 Reaching Hurting Women continues our magazine format which offers four different themes for study and contemplation every month for the year. Each of the four power-packed themes will be a 12 month series assigned to a specific Friday of every month. In months with five Fridays we’ll be offering a special column reviewing touching inspirational music.

Happy New Year! I’m so excited to give you an overview of the upcoming weekly Reaching Hurting Women columns for 2021.  We’ll be continuing our magazine format which offers four powerful themes for study each Friday of the month. The schedule will be as follows:

1st Friday of Each Month: Psalm 91 

The first Friday of each month we will be studying Psalm 91. We’ll be breaking down this powerful psalm one phrase at a time and applying its phenomenal protection promises to our life today.

2nd Friday of Each Month: The Holy Spirit

On the second Friday of each month we’ll be going through an in-depth study of The Holy Spirit. We will be learning about who The Holy Spirit is, what are the gifts and fruits of the Spirit and how we can walk them out in our daily life.

3rd Friday of Each Month: Life Recovery Gifts

Continuing our ongoing recovery work, this year we’ll be studying the 12 Gifts of Life Recovery. We will learn about the hidden blessings that come as an added benefit with our journey into wholeness and health.

4th Friday of Each Month: The Do It Afraid Book Study 

Our book study for 2021 is Do It Afraid: Embracing Courage in the Face of Fear by Joyce Meyer. We will learn how to understand fear, recognize how it works in our life, confront the fears that hold us back and achieve lasting freedom from those fears. Join me as we dig into Joyce’s awesome and timely released new book.

5th Friday Months: Music Reviews 

I’m really happy to be continuing the special column that I premiered in 2020. On the last Friday in each of the months that have five Fridays (January, April, July, October and December) I’ll be bringing you reviews of Christian music that has particularly touched my heart and spirit.

I’m so looking forward to a wonderful year of writing and study together in the Lord. I hope you’ll join me and bring along a friend when you can.

I pray God’s many Blessings upon you and your family for this coming year and always… Tamara
