We talked about worship some of the time, and went through a bunch of Psalms, pulling out different verses that emphasized why we should worship God in different situations in our lives.
It was a time of refreshing after the busyness of the past few months.
I really appreciate the passion that David and the other writers put into their psalms. They don't hold back their emotion, they are honest with God. They are real.
I like realness. And I haven't been really real, honest, or open with myself and others in the past. I think that has been something that God has been working in me for a while, but it's going to take time. And as I become more real, I become more of the person who God created me to be.
So this morning, I just felt like reading from psalms. So I will leave you with Psalm 62 to think about.
"I wait quietly before God,
for my victory comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress where I will never be shaken.
Don’t make your living by extortion
or put your hope in stealing.
And if your wealth increases,
don’t make it the center of your life.
God has spoken plainly,
and I have heard it many times:
Power, O God, belongs to you;
unfailing love, O Lord, is yours.
Surely you repay all people
