Into the Psalms

I was talking with my sister the other day about what an emotional roller coaster life seems to be at this point in time. This is something that I have been really struggling with during the past few months. I described it as a nightmare that I couldn’t seem to get out of. As much as I tried to rely on God and surrender to Him, I was truly holding on to a razor thin edge of hope. As I was so worried about a safe place for my dad to be, there was a day when almost all of the family was together and we all prayed together. Then I heard God’s prompting, “Now watch me work.” A few days later, we were getting things in order for my dad to move into Morning Star. Tonight I started the 4th and final year of my Bible class. We started with the first section of Psalms. The instructor stressed the fact that the psalms reflect our human condition being creatures with emotions. The verses go from lamenting to praise and back and forth. No matter what state of mind we find ourselves in, we can find it in the psalms along with encouragement and direction. It sounds like exactly what I need right now – of course. Even though it was a tumultuous day, I find myself grateful tonight.

I Found God today being led back into His Word.
