What is God teach you or revealing to you in the Psalms?
Reading the Psalms often takes me back to when I was encouraged by my parents and various Sunday school teachers to read the Bible on my own. By far the easiest for me to read as a young girl were the Psalms. They were like poetry or songs to me, and indeed the Psalms are often referred to as the Bible’s “songbook.” Many of the old hymns that I remember growing up were based on Psalms as well. “A Mighty Fortress is Our God” which was sung at Washington National Cathedral following 9/11 was a paraphrase of Psalm 46 written by Martin Luther. “O God, Our Help in Ages Past” is a paraphrase of Psalm 90 written by Isaac Watts in 1708 and often sung at funerals and remembrance days. Crazy, I know…but it was these old hymns that bubbled up for me during the first days of the pandemic when we had little information and things were pretty scary. The words rang true and comforted me even though they were written so long ago.

Creation is our theme all summer long! We are working on memorizing our new Bible verse, Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth." We are also learning a song, "My God is so Big," linked here: Sing Hosanna - My God Is So Big | Bible Songs for Kids - YouTube
