I don’t know if I have ever been as challenged and encouraged by the Word of God as I have been these past 2 weeks while reading the Psalms. They contain great wisdom and direction from the Lord on how to worship him as he deserves, how to mourn our sin deeply, and how to hope in His great love and mercy. What a blessed and treasured time it has been, though immensely difficult as well. It seems that every time I open the Word to the Psalms, the Holy Spirit is speaking directly to me, revealing truth about me and about himself. Many of the Psalms could have been ripped straight from my thoughts and transplanted to the page they described my thoughts and feelings so accurately.

How gracious is our God that he would deign to speak to us, let alone love us and minister to our needs. He is great indeed.

Humbled by his grace,
