THE BOOK OF PSALMS :
A magnificent collection of poems and songs written over a period of many years.
The Psalms were originally intended and used as worship songs for both congregations, as well as for individuals and for this reason you will notice that many of the Psalms address God directly, which makes them easy for you to read and pray.
The Psalms are treasures filled with praises and worship to God, but not only this they also hold practical advice and helpful insight into the many different emotions, struggles and victories that you may walk through on a daily basis.
.. GOD WANTS TO HEAR YOUR HEART ..
As you spend time reading the Psalms, notice how raw and honest the writers were with God, when they spoke to God they spoke directly from their hearts.
It did not matter if they were joyful, confident, afraid, angry, depressed or lonely, they wrote about it.
In the midst of expressing themselves fully and freely to God, the Psalmists realized their desperate need for God in fresh new ways, and they reaffirmed their unwavering trust in Him.
Have you realized that every single emotion that you ever experience seems to have already been mentioned in the Psalms, and the reason for this is so that you may grow in confidence knowing that no matter what you are going through, God wants to hear your heart.
Your journey through life may sometimes feel a little difficult to navigate, and there will be days when you find yourself desperate for a word of encouragement, an instruction, or even a word of comfort.
