Psalm Meditations

These are my reflections on what I’ve called the “shorter Psalms.”  This began a few years ago as a chance for me to think more personally and devotionally about the Psalms.  Eventually, I thought it might be a helpful aid to people who would like to overhear my meditations or reflections on these Psalms.  So, I decided I would email my reflections out each week or two.  It turns out that I’ve been able to write another meditation every 2 to 3 weeks on average–depending on how my other responsibilities are going.  So I wanted to keep these short enough to be no more than 1 page in length, and I always want to reprint the entire Psalm so that people could begin like I did–by reading the Psalm for themselves.  The reflections on Psalm 56 are the latest to be added to this collection.

I don’t claim to have any new or remarkable insights into these psalms, but I hope that they are the kinds of meditations that will resonate with you as they have with me.  Hopefully, we can grow through them and learn that the Psalms are a wonderfully personal glimpse into the hearts of psalmists praying, singing, rejoicing, crying, confessing, pleading, and sometimes angrily shouting at God.  But they do it in a way that is always faithful.  May we always follow that example.

God bless,
