The world can be a cauldron of adversity, a crucible of trouble, a cul-de-sac of endless suffering with no way out (or so it seems). All of us at one time or another can become
overwhelmed and at a loss for words to express what we feel. The Psalms help us with this problem.
The beauty of the Psalms is that the very words written in the book of Psalms are words given by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. When we are at a place in our lives where we are at a loss for words – try the Psalms. We will find words custom fit just for us. There are psalms of thanksgiving, praise, repentance, sorrow and suffering. All these are meant to facilitate healing and promote a healthy expression of what is in our hearts. The Psalms are given to us as a gift from God.
