Summer in the Psalms

Aug 11, 2019 | Dan MacGillivray

Hope Remains

Hopelessness is a common expression of the soul in our culture.  The script we write in our hearts doesn’t always look hopeful.  Not only does what we read on our news feeds often leave us feeling helpless, what we see going on in our lives leaves us feeling the same way. The psalmist reminds us time and time again that hardships are a part of life. We can’t escape pain. But we can cling to hope -  a hope that in the middle of the mess there is a God who is faithful to walk with us. Because of the steadfast love of God, we can cry with hope, no matter what life brings.

Series Information

Does life sometimes feel like you are on a roller coaster? There are great highs and everything seems to be going our way. Until we experience that next drop and the low that follows it. Add to this the time in between where it can feel like we are just hanging on for dear life or we are busy trying to catch our breath.  Sound familiar? Ever wonder if there is anybody else who knows how that feels? Join us this summer as we explore the Psalms finding wisdom and language to help us navigate this ride called life.
