“At the speed this world moves, few people have time to sit down and read a good long book. Ironically, the remedy for this frantic life can be found in Psalms, the longest book of the Bible.
Its length is not the only intimidating factor. Psalms is an ancient book that spans many centuries and relies on multiple authors. But the Psalms are easier to understand than you may realize. And studying them can lead you to new discoveries, relief, awe, and surprise.
In this study, Ray Ortlund will help you see that the Psalms are a place that God has provided to encounter Him and find help, rest, honesty, hope, courage, joy, and the confidence you need to face this crazy life.” Follow #LovedBiblePsalms to see these posts!

“Everyone has a theology, whether we recognize it or not. We all hold beliefs about God and the universe He created, and what we believe about God influences everything we do. For that reason, we must have good, sound theology.
The Theology Handbook is a reference book that covers a wide variety of topics within systematic theology.” #LovedBibleTheology to see these posts!

“Every Christian wants to grow into the person God made him to be. Every Christian has a healthier, more spiritually mature version of herself in mind. Every Christian looks upon the future’s horizon and imagines a relationship with God ever-increasing in vibrancy and strength.
But how does a Christian get there? How does a sapling with good intentions actually become an oak of righteousness?
You might think the answer is “regularly read the Bible, pray often, and share the gospel consistently.” And those practices are certainly part of it. But in this book, Mason King expands your thinking beyond basic spiritual practices (which typically emphasize what you must do) into a more holistic picture of what a full and flourishing life with God can look like when it is cultivated well (focusing instead on who you might become).
In these pages, learn how you can become a vibrant, healthy Christian by regularly offering to God three main dimensions of your life—your attention, your emotions, and your limits—for when you are disciplined in cultivating these environments at the root, you will grow into the right kind of tree.” Follow #LovedBibleSpiritualDisciplines to see these posts!

“Discover the key to enjoying God in every moment of every day.
We believe in God, we serve God, we trust God, but would we say that we enjoy God on a day to day basis? What exactly does a personal relationship with God look like, and how is it even possible?
This work by Tim Chester shows us how we can enjoy God in every moment of every day, whether we are experiencing good times or hard times; whether we are changing diapers, or stuck on a train. He explores how the Father, the Son and the Spirit relate to us in our day-to-day lives, and how to respond.
As we interact more with God and understand how awesome he is, we will experience joy in our service, our witness, our sacrifices and our suffering.” Follow #LovedBibleEnjoyingGod to see these posts!

“Life doesn’t always go the way we hoped, and sometimes God doesn’t answer our prayers the way we’d like. Challenging circumstances, especially ones with no immediate end in sight, can cause us to question God’s character, his purpose and his ways.
Each of these 20 biblical reflections examines a truth about God and shows how it provides an anchor for the soul in hard times. Author Katie Faris writes with warmth and compassion, weaving in stories of her own family’s struggles with complex medical conditions. She encourages readers to entrust their confusing circumstances and unanswered questions to the Lord and place their hope in his promises. In so doing, they will be sustained in their suffering and enabled to live joyfully and fruitfully, loving and serving God and others, in the midst of their struggles.” Follow #LovedBibleEnough to see these posts!
