New Worship Series God is Holding Your Life
“The works of God’s hands are faithful and just.” – Psalm 111
Life is a series of exclamations from “O No!” to “Help!” to “Oh Yeah!” We can swing between disappointment, helplessness, and gratitude on a daily basis. There are also seasons of our lives when we feel inundated with more of one than the others. As we enter the new year, we had hoped we would be past the “O No!” of the last several months. Instead we find ourselves with ongoing prayers for “Help!” The Book of Psalms knows all about this. Written over a span of time from exile and isolation to the rebuilding of the community, the poetry of the Psalms will accompany us in this series, reminding us that through it all, we can trust and even give our thankful “Oh Yeah!” because God is, indeed, holding our lives.
June 20: “These Lives are Precious” – Psalm 72:1-7, 10-14
June 27: “Awe and Wonder” – Psalm 29
July 4: “Where Can I Go?” – Psalm 139: 1-18
July 11: “In God Alone” – Psalm 62: 5-12
July 18: “The One is Shining Forth” – Psalm 50:1-6
Sign up for the Daily Psalm Reading Program
(June 21 to Sept 9)
We are starting a new series, “God Is Holding Our Life” from June 20. One key aspect of this series is a Psalm reading program, which anyone can do! We will plan to read 2 Psalms a day (every day except Sunday), and you can join any time. Once you sign up, you will receive a daily email with the 2 chapters. We hope everyone can participate, at least some of the time, so we can together learn the Psalms as a church.
You might be surprised at the depth of emotion and difficult circumstances experienced by the psalmists. They wrote about very real circumstances and prayed heartfelt prayers to God from the depths of their soul. We can probably all relate to something that we read in the Psalms. Once you get started, you will be richly blessed as you read and ponder these psalms!
