Have you ever read a familiar passage of scripture and felt like specific words were jumping of the page at you?
That’s exactly what happened to Adrienne Camp, author of the new Bible Study “As For Me: Life Through the Lens of the Psalms.”
Adrienne noticed the phrase “As for Me” recurring through her reading of Psalms. She says she has learned to pay attention when she sees something repeating in her Bible study. It means she’s supposed to pursue the idea and find out more. She found that the psalmists used this phrase with purpose, resolving that no matter what season they were walking through, they would keep their eyes fixed on Jesus.
Adrienne, is a South African singer and songwriter, and former lead singer of Christian rock band The Benjamin Gate, but you may know her best as wife of Christian artist Jeremy Camp. They started a family together and Adrienne homeschools their son and two daughters. The family loves traveling the world sharing music and the love of Jesus wherever they go.
This study of Psalms takes you through some of the themes of the book, exploring how we can find guidance in trusting God, finding His will, thanksgiving, wisdom, getting through difficult seasons and learning to praise. The Psalms are songs that have been sung for generations by thousands of people declaring that Jesus is with us in every season we go through.
In this world, where there is craziness and confusion wherever we turn, even in the church, Adie hopes that digging into the Psalms will provide people with direction and words to hold on to. Through making the Psalms a part of our life, people will see Jesus in us, so that the life of a Christian will look different the life of the world.
Adrienne says that although it’s very difficult to choose a favorite Psalms, Psalms 1 is one of her favorites:
How happy is the one who does notwalk in the advice of the wickedor stand in the pathway with sinnersor sit in the company of mockers!Instead, his delight is in the Lord’s instruction,and he meditates on it day and night.He is like a tree planted beside flowing streamsthat bears its fruit in its seasonand its leaf does not wither.Whatever he does prospers.The wicked are not like this;instead, they are like chaff that the wind blows away.Therefore the wicked will not stand up in the judgment,nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,but the way of the wicked leads to ruin.
The study has 7 sessions leading you through the themes of Psalms. There are 5 days of study, along with a video session for each week. The study can be done on your own or with a group. As for Me is published by Lifeway. To find out more or start the study, click here.
