Good Morning October 12

We love the Psalms. It is a book of 150 separate expressions of faith. Some are crying out to the Lord. Others asking for help, or vengeance. Some recounting the history of the people. Many others sing out in praise, and trust in the Lord. Some are prophetic. They are all the varied expressions of the heart. It is a joy to read one or more at a time because we can identify with many of the words expressed. Did you ever think of writing your own Psalm? It is a wonderful exercise. You don’t have to be a good poet, or eloquent in speech. You just need to express your own heart toward the Lord. It can be praise and devotion, or need and frustration. It is your heart to the Lord, your Father. “Hear my cry, O God; Give heed to my prayer. From the end of the earth I call to You when my heart is faint; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For You have been a refuge for me, A tower of strength against the enemy. Let me dwell in Your tent forever; Let me take refuge in the shelter of Your wings.”(Ps.61:1-4) Give it a try. It will draw you closer to your Lord.
