Psalm 84

Today's psalm is all about the longing to be near the living God. I love the yearning in it. I love the JOY that is shown when God is called our "sun and shield!" Be thankful, as you read this, that if you have received Christ as Savior, you no longer have to go to the temple to meet with Him. He is within you, and you are called His temple. Yes, you.

Psalm 77

I had informed my husband as he left for work that day my plan was to cry my eyes out. He didn’t comprehend this in the slightest and looked quite relieved that I didn’t seem to think him necessary to the process. After he left, I pulled our overstuffed chair up to the fire, put on sweet worship music, grabbed a box of Kleenex, and simply sobbed. It was just what I needed. It was a time when trouble seemed all around […] Read more »
