Several of this week’s Psalms talk about fully relying on God. Although this is our ultimate purpose, no one ever said it was easy.

When our lives (or the whole world) are in turmoil, humans … Continue reading In His Word I Put My Hope

How often have you heard that it helps to say instead of “I have to go to Sunday school”, “I get to go to … Continue reading I Get To Read The Psalms
One of the main things my friends make fun of me for is my lack of visible emotion. We didn’t express our emotions in our home when I was growing up so it doesn’t come super naturally for me. I think that’s why I love the Psalms so much. They help me feel…or at least … Continue reading Laugh, Cry, Scream, Whatever!
