Monday morning Grown Up Conversations
We all sometimes struggle to find words to express our feelings. That is why God gave us the Psalms. For many people whether followers of Jesus Christ or not – we have found a Psalm that expresses our feelings along the journey of life. For me, I can say many times when I struggle to articulate my feelings, I have found Psalms to be a book of solace.
When we are sad or disheartened, there is a Psalms to soothe our anxieties and fears and to show us how to safely vent into the ear of our caring Heavenly Father. Even feelings of anger and bitterness find a quiet place of honesty as in Psalm 73:16-17 “When I tried to understand all this, it troubled me deeply till I entered the sanctuary of God; then I understood their final destiny.”
You are not alone when it comes to feeling overwhelmed like riding a roller-coaster of emotions. We are all susceptible to unexplained feelings but how we manage those feelings determine if we are winning or losing the war.
Have you ever tried to use a screwdriver when you really needed a hammer? Frustrating experience. But that has nothing to do with the screwdriver – you just chose the wrong tool.
Let the conversation gets started – All week I will be using the Book of Psalms as my conversational pieces.
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night.
He will be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season; its leaf will not wither, and whatever he does will prosper.
The ungodly are not so but are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
Therefore, the ungodly will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly will perish.
God charts the road you take. The road they take is Skid Row.
