We see the words recorded on every page in the Psalms, an array of raw emotions. From fear to trust. Sorrow to joy. Anger to peace. Sometimes the words are shockingly candid, but only because we’ve all been there.
The songs penned over 2,500 years ago are the same songs we as Christ-followers sing corporately in our churches today and will continue to sing together for years to come. As a writer, I love that the Bible was the first book ever printed on the printing press!
“Falling into the Psalms” is a daily devotion for September written by clergy and laity from all over the Texas Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.
It is my hope that as we continue to move into this time of uncertainty in our world and our denomination, you will bathe in the rich words of the Psalter.
Let’s use this forum to encourage one another and to build one another up in sisterly and brotherly love. Leave comments for the writers here and if there is someone you know that needs to see a particular devo, please share a devotional or two. And as we live into God’s promises, let’s continue to depend on God and Praise His Holy name!
Bishop Scott J. Jones
