Our “estate planning” would do well to include equipping ourselves with songs that have nurtured the Church for decades and centuries.
As you thirst in a dry and parched land for something to give life and hope instead of sadness, worry, and despair—run to Christ.
Be encouraged by scripture today.
Be amazed with me at how well the Psalmist anticipated Advent. Consider how our lives might reflect a patient optimism for righteousness to prevail in our lives and for salvation to be our destiny. Let us live in that expectation this Advent season.
If you want to know what an honest song is then look to the Psalms. They cover every kind of human emotion. John Calvin talks about the Psalms as “an anatomy for all parts of the soul.” They are prayers that capture the totality of the human experience.
