285-The Eighteenth

“Have you ever felt like those who are supposed to be leading you are not qualified or worthy to do so?

I know in our political environment that is a loaded question with an obvious answer. In today’s podcast and post we continue our ongoing series of Psalms greatest hits as we shrink down this very real, and very common point of existential pain as we look closer at what it means to trust that which is beyond ourselves.

Join me now as we look at the Eighteenth Psalm and discover that the heart of true leadership is trusting and waiting for opportunity to serve, not complaining, back biting, and hating what has already been established.

255-The Thirty-Ninth

“What happens if we turn social justice inward?”

In today’s post and podcast we continue our ongoing series of Psalms Greatest Hits with an exploration of the thirty-ninth Psalm. Everybody is desperate for change right now. The political machine has whirled everyone into a frenzy of battling for one side, one ideology, or one outcome.

Join me know as we follow David from this same point of desperation along his path inward where he discovers something so much greater than winning, where he gains true sight and the ability to see beyond everything into our real battle.

223- The Fifteenth

“According to religion, who gets access to God?”

This is an interesting question which exposes our preconceived ideas about proximity, worthiness, and morality. In today’s podcast and post we continue or ongoing series of the Psalm’s Greatest Hits as we consider the Fifteenth Psalm.

Join me now as we take some cleansing breaths and reflect upon the words of David and how they trigger us. We will look between the lines of the pages and see beyond everything into the motivation of love and how it changes all things.

183- The First…

“Is your soul in need of some care?”

If we never attended to the hair on our heads, over time we would possess a giant mess of disorganization that could become harmful to our health and well-being. Our soul (psuché/ true inner self) functions in a similar manner. We must tend to it, or comb it through if we are to bring order out from internal chaos.

Join me now as we begin a series that will be interlaced over time (not all at once) as we examine the Pslams greatest hits. This time of “combing” will serve us by bringing order out of the chaos that emerges within the deepest part of our being. May this series allow us to see beyond everything.
