Psalm 119 can be intimidating coming in at 176 verses! I don’t want that to scare you away from reading this powerful Psalm. This Online Bible Study breaks this Psalm down into a manageable Daily Scripture Writing Plan, Journaling Reflection Worksheets, bonus Bible Journaling Worksheets for using the SOAP Bible Study Method, and a Word Study worksheet.
Note: All of the studies in The Good Enough Shop were once “Live Studies,” meaning our Online Bible Study Community met in a private Facebook group and live weekly Zoom Bible Study meetings. If you’d like to join us, click here to learn more about our Online Bible Study Community.
Bible Study Template
Sometimes it can be confusing and even overwhelming when you want to start reading your Bible. These Online Bible Study Worksheets can help; think of them as a Bibel Study Template. Everything has been designed for ease of use and clarity when reading your Bible.
The Daily Scripture Writing Plan clearly shows you each day which verses to read and write. The Journaling Reflection Questions help you dig deeper into the verses you read and write each day. And the bonus Bible Study Templates for SOAP and a Word Study are designed to be printed multiple times–they do not have day-specific content.
Psalm 119 Online Bible Study
Benedict XVI had this to say about Psalm 119 (or Psalm 118 according to the Greco-Latin numbering), “…what is most important for us is this Psalm’s central theme. In fact, it is an impressive, solemn canticle on the Torah of the Lord, that is, on his Law, a term which in its broadest and most comprehensive meaning should be understood as a teaching, an instruction, a rule of life. The Torah is a revelation, it is a word of God that challenges the human being and elicits his response of trusting obedience and generous love.”
A “Rule of Life” Psalm, I love that term! He goes on to say, “This Psalm is steeped in love for the word of God whose beauty, saving power and capacity for giving joy and life it celebrates; because the divine Law is not the heavy yoke of slavery but a liberating gift of grace that brings happiness.”
What is a Rule of Life?
I found a beautiful explanation online, “A Rule of Life is an intentional pattern of spiritual disciplines that provides structure and direction for growth in holiness. A Rule establishes a rhythm for life in which is helpful for being formed by the Spirit, a rhythm that reflects a love for God and respect for how he has made us. The disciplines which we build into our rhythm of life help us to shed the “old self” and allow our “new self” in Christ to be formed. Spiritual disciplines are means of grace by which God can nourish us. Ultimately a Rule should help you to love God more, so if it becomes a legalistic way of earning points with God or impressing others, it should be scrapped. If the traditional, ancient term “rule” concerns you because it sounds legalistic, think of “rule” as a “rhythm of life.”
YES! This is why we join together each month to study and write God’s Word! The world wants us to believe God’s Law, His Word, and His commands are confining and soul-crushing, taking away all our freedom and creativity as individuals when in reality, it’s quite the opposite. God’s Word reveals His beauty, His love for us–His children, and the ways of joy only found in Him.
Is it Too Late to Join the Live Study?
Our Online Bible Study Community has completed this particular online Bible study, but each month we start a new one!
These Bible Study Worksheets are similar to the ones we used when we were reading, writing, praying, and studying Psalm 119. I say similar because as of July 2022 I have updated these Bible Study Worksheets! I cleaned them up, simplified the Daily Scripture Writing Plan, clarified some of the Journaling Reflection Questions and added the bonus worksheets. The only thing I did not update was the price!
Can I Access the Psalm 119 Online Bible Study?
When you purchase this Online Bible Study you have access to all the Bible Study Worksheets. If you join our Online Bible Study Community, although we are not reading, writing, praying, and studying Psalm 119 right now, you will have access to the recorded videos, Zoom Bible Study meetings, and recorded Facebook Lives that are in our private Facebook Group–Kitchen Sink Missionaries.
Do You Have Free Bible Study Worksheets?
I do! I have an entire library full of free Bible Study Worksheets and Bible Journaling Printables! These are available for email subscribers.
In the coming weeks, I’ll share how I’m reprinting these Online Bible Studies and making my own Bible Study Notebook. I honestly haven’t been this excited about my personal Bible Study in a while! In case you want to gather your supplies now, here’s a list of what I’m using:
A Happy Planner (Big)–the main reason I love a Happy Planner is that I can add pages to it!
Extra Pages for my Happy Planner–for notes, reflections, and doodles
Happy Planner Hole Punch–so I can turn anything into an insert: church bulletins, things I print off the internet, cards, ect.
Frixion Multi-Colored Pens
Sharpie S Note Highlighters
Other Online Bible Studies
I’ve recently updated the Online Bible Study: Philippians. Again, I cleaned up the Daily Scripture Writing Plan and Journaling Reflection Questions. I added two bonus Bible Study Worksheets: SOAP Bible Study and a Character Study Worksheet for the Apostle Paul.
