How the Psalms help us make sense of the various seasons in our lives‪.‬ The 180 Church Podcast with Dr. Sammy and Friends

    • Christianity

Life is of battles and blessings. Whether you’re in either season, it may feel like no end is in sight. Psalm embraces some of David’s darkest emotions in his battles. Yet, as God was with David in his valley, He is with us. If we feel we’re in a valley this season, God is there, will walk with us, and will not leave us broken. It’s an opportunity to become more whole, in community, and under God’s leadership. Other times, we may be on our hills, feel absolutely sated, and without want. This can lead us down the wrong path where we feel like we’re better than others. David experienced his cycles of his hills and valleys, but never gloated and boasted in himself. Whether a battle or blessing, how do we remember worship and humility? In either place, we need look up to God and to others in moderation, community, and grace.
