My Psalm of Trust | Joy Cometh in the Morning | A Present Help in Time of Trouble | Be Still, and Know that I am God
This week we begin the book of Psalms. Have you ever read the entire book of Psalms? It is an easy read…and we are going to invite you to join us in reading the whole book this month if you would like to! We will average about 4 pages a day. The schedule will be posted on the board each week. You will be able to find the reading schedule in our newsletter or on the app! This week in Come, Follow Me we will be studying the first part of Psalms with a focus on trusting the Lord.
The psalms lead us to do what the psalmists do—to commit ourselves to God through pledges and promises, to depend on God through petition and expressions of acceptance, to seek comfort in God through lament and complaint, to find mercy from God through confession and repentance, to gain new wisdom and perspective from God through meditation, remembrance, and reflection. The psalms also help us see God—God not as we wish or hope him to be but as he actually reveals himself.
