Reaching the finish line is a wonderful accomplishment. Although we have reached the end of the book of Psalms, the race is far from over. Listen as the psalmist encourages us – almost panting like a runner at the end of the race – to keep going and praise the Lord at all times.
We are fascinated by items that carry the label “new” and will sacrifice much to have the latest and greatest. Because of what God has done for us, we can sing a new song. Listen as Psalm 149 is unfolded and explained, then join in singing a new song of joy, justice, and praise!
Don’t hurry away from Christmas! The shepherds on the night of Messiah’s birth, returned with rejoicing and great wonder thinking about all the things they had seen and heard that evening.

We have all been to the place in life where we feel alone and abandoned; that the whole world is against us and there is little to no hope for escape. David describes this point of life as he pens Psalm 141. in the midst of all that is happening, David knows that God will […]
One of the deepest personal needs is to be known. David expresses the joy and thrill of being known by the God of the Universe in Psalm 139. Be encouraged as you listen. God knows who you are! God knows where you are! God knows what you are! God knows what you are facing!
