WEEK 1 - June 12, 2016
Psalm 1 differentiates between two paths of life; one holds water, the other collapses. The difference depends on what/who you love.
WEEK 2 - JUNE 19, 2016
"THE Wide Angle"
The story we find ourselves in is one in which there is a steady and faithful God that people have taken for granted and thought of too lightly and too little. The world (and we) have said in our hearts, He must decrease and I must increase. That has been devastating to our world and our experience with life. Psalm 2 tells us that God has a plan for the chaos in our world.
WEEK 3 - JUNE 26, 2016
David is brought through his rumbling and preaching to himself; from a place of anxiousness, fear, and anger, to a place of compassion and empathy. This teaches us that when life seems to fall apart, you don’t have to fall apart with it. God can use our most difficult moments to deepen our trust in Him and to produce gratefulness in us that will encourage people around us.
WEEK 4 - JUly 3, 2016
Throughout one of the most hurtful moments in his life, King David bookended his days with a morning prayer (Psalm 3) and an evening prayer (Psalm 4). With life closing in on him, David prays, God hears, and David is made glad.
WEEK 5 - JULY 10, 2016
Every person has been faced with the questions: What do I do when I feel that everything safe and everything decent is under attack? Where do I turn now?
In Psalm 5, we find David in the middle of trouble, not diving down the “rabbit hole” of depression, anger, hopelessness, or planning his own ways to get out of trouble, but he places his focus on who God is.
In following his example, we can find that the gospel is the answer to every human tragedy.
WEEK 6 - JULY 17, 2016
We all know what it’s like to get caught in sin. But what happens when we fall into sin? It’s what you do after you sin that makes the difference between life & death.
WEEK 7 - JULY 24, 2016
You cannot be a man after God's own heart if you aren't interested in what is on God's heart.
