Have you noticed something about our Scripture readings this week? It is not a coincidence God included 150 chapters of song and praise right in the middle of our Scriptures.
When I teach the children at church how to use their Bible, the first thing we learn is how to find the book of Psalms. We begin there because it helps us navigate the rest of the book.
Praise does the same for our faith. It helps us navigate as we continue on our faith journey.
Let’s give it a try. Hold your closed Bible in front of you and place your thumbs a little left of the middle. When you open it, did you find Psalms? Read the Psalm you find on the page. What do the words speak to you in this moment?
