Welcome to a new series, here on The Church Sofa – and it’s going to be a long one. Don’t worry, it’s in a good way! We’re going to be blogging our way through the psalms.
I love the Book of Psalms. It’s like the song book of the Bible, full of every emotion you can imagine, good, bad and ugly. Lots of them were written by King David who is one of my all time top blokes. He has this kind of of perpetual blessing and anointing combined with an unbreakable grace that no matter how badly he screws things up (and he does, in spectacular fashion on numerous occasions) he always comes through closer to God and trusting even more.
The idea for how I’m going to do this came from my wife. She did something similar a few years ago in a notebook. What she did, and what I’m going to do, is focus on one verse from every Psalm. As I go through I’ll be highlighting these in my Bible (yep, real book kind of Bible) and blogging about my thoughts, why I’ve picked this verse and what I feel God is saying to me through it.
Hopefully some of what I write through this seems relevant to you and might encourage you in some way too.
