The Thrill of Hope - #2 - The Welcome Mat

AdventinthePsalms.jpg

Psalms are real talk, real prayers, real songs, of real people.  So they’re a beautiful thing. We get to see authentic believers struggle in prayer with God. We get to see believers wrestle and even get upset with God. We hear them cry out in desperation.  We hear them sing out with joy. We hear them worship.  We hear them pray. We hear them preach.  We hear them complain.  We hear them struggle.  We hear them yell at God.  We see them fall into his arms.  The psalms are full of real people living in a real, living, breathing, wrestling, open and authentic relationship with God.  Over the next few weeks, during our Sunday services, we’ll be looking at some of the psalms of Advent.  Today, we’ll start with Psalm 24.
