Taking Our Emotions to the Lord in Psalms

Taking Our Emotions to the Lord in Psalms - Reading and Writing Psalms
Life is full of emotions – sorrow, joy, confusion, frustration, anger, fear….

We can’t avoid emotions, but it's important we handle them Biblically.

The Psalmists offer wonderful examples. They were open and honest about their feelings, but careful to remember God’s faithfulness.

That’s one reason to read the Psalms. And, if you're so inclined, you can take it one step further and write personal "psalms" to the Lord, sharing your specific sorrows and joys with Him.

Below are eleven one-minute devotions based on specific emotions and specific Psalms. May they encourage you to take your emotions to the Lord!
