The Bible shows us again and again that God’s love is meant to be felt and lived on a daily basis. We have to find ways for our belief and faith to enter into our lives and lift the burdens of pain, stress, anxiety, and guilt. One way to do this could be writing our own psalms, through which we can interact with scripture and with God.
—Jane Herring, One Day I Wrote Back: Interacting with Scripture Through Creative Writing (Upper Room Books, 2015)
If you were to write a psalm, what would it say? Join the conversation.
All you people: Trust in him at all times!
Pour out your hearts before him!
God is our refuge!
—Psalm 62:8 (CEB)
