The Psalms of Ascent

I'm hosting a women's bible study that started tonight using this book. We are studying the Psalms 120 to 134 which are known as the Psalms of Ascent. The thing I love about Beth Moore's studies is that she has a way of talking to anyone and everyone right where they are in life. She also has a great way of paralleling the old and new testament. She compares the pilgrimage of the old testament to the pilgrimage we are in now to heavenly Jerusalem. That pilgrimage can be is hard. The 15 psalms also parallel the 15 steps of the temple. As we ascend through the psalms, we will hopefully go up to the next level in our relationship with God. As we go up we also need to be on our faces in humility.
We are all at different places in our lives from early 20's to 50's but we hope to learn from each other and grow closer as well as grow in our faith.
