Our Psalms of Praise Through life’s Pains

October 30, 2013

Reading the book of Psalms brings much joy to my heart because I see that the writers are pouring out their hearts and expressing how good and great our God is. Every verse practically mentions something in reference to praising the Lord. What I also see in the psalms, is that David and the others recognized our true purpose for our life, and that is to praise His name and to give Him Glory.

October 8, 2013

Many times I find myself sitting wondering what to do for the day. I pray and wait and then for whatever reason, I find myself restless.
