I’ll Sing Once More

I can’t believe that this week we will be reading the last three psalms. We started reading on April 13 – right at the beginning of the pandemic lockdown. And we’re ending as (hopefully) things are starting the slow crawl to getting back to normal.  I’ve been thinking about it and maybe this was exactly … Continue reading I’ll Sing Once More

Longing for Normalcy

Though notably disturbing, Psalm 137 is quite relatable. No, not verse 9, but the sentiment behind longing for what used to be. The Israelites had been in exile, where they stayed for 70 years. They missed their homes, their traditions, and their regular way of life. For us it hasn't even been 7 months and … Continue reading Longing for Normalcy

Who can you trust?

http://www.hilariousgifs.com/father-teaching-his-son-a-valuable-life-lesson/ Wednesday's psalm is one that resonates with me...unfortunately. It reminds us how easy it is to trust in things we can see and touch more than we trust in God. I'm ashamed to admit how often I find myself doing that.

The sense I get is that everyone around me, whether you’ve faced significant hardships or not, is … Continue reading Why Did You Stop Fighting?

“Thank You” Like David, not Dido

This week we have several psalms that focus on the cause and effect of our relationship with God. God, you did _________ so I'm going to praise you. This is something I've been working on for a while with my two year old and it's an easy thing to start with your kids too. Georgia … Continue reading “Thank You” Like David, not Dido

The Highs and Lows of David

All but one of this week’s Psalms specifically say they were written by David. And, in this week of Psalms we will see a wide range of thoughts and feelings. David wants his enemies to get what’s coming to them but he also encourages all faithful people to praise God regularly. David pleas for God … Continue reading The Highs and Lows of David
