Wow, despite the unrelenting heat, the summer has seemingly flown by! Spending the last several weeks in the Psalms has been balm for my weary and dry soul. As a professional church musician, the Psalms are easily my “go to” for Scripture.
I mentioned a few weeks ago in our group sermon that one of my seminary professors challenged us that when we read Scripture, each passage should call to mind five other passages. I know for this Psalm series, I had at least 5 songs come to mind for each one that was chosen. I feel like we have only scratched the surface on the richness found in these 150 gifts.
Psalms give us voice when ours is silent. Psalms remind us to give thanks in all situations. Psalms let us express the whole range of emotions found on Pastor Stella’s “Emotion Wheel.” Thanks be to God. May we continue to make a joyful noise!
