We are roughly A MONTH away from the launch of The Honesty of the Psalms: Wrestling with the Word of God in a Broken World! “What is this said book?” you may be asking…well, I’m glad you asked!
Authentic relationships should happen naturally. When you have true relationship with someone, no matter where you are or have been, you are allowed the space to express a whole host of honest emotions. I would argue that most people desire this in their relationships. And yet how many of us find that we become uncomfortable in THAT type of relationship with our Creator? How many times have we found ourselves trying to act, or even be, something different with God than where we actually find ourselves? And yet isn’t this what the Psalms DON’T do? This book, through my personal studies and struggles. I seek to help readers not only work through the joys and pains of the psalms but help the reader work through their own related struggles. If an authentic relationship with God is our desire then we need to feel safe in expressing however we feel, knowing all along, that God allows us to express our anger, joy, sadness, grief, and abandonment when they come upon us. That whatever we are feeling, wherever we find ourselves in our walk with God, through the psalms we are given permission to wrestle with a holy God in a broken world – knowing all the while he has already responded to our needs. And at the end of each reflection I ask you to respond to 3 questions that will hopefully guide you, the reader, into a deeper conversation (with that specific psalm as our guide) within your own context.
So – why am I telling you this? Well, this blog STARTED because of these psalm reflections!
