In the 40-Day Bible Reading challenge, we’ve been plunging and playing in the Psalms this week. I’ve so appreciated the way Eugene Peterson breaths fresh language, imagery, and color into this collection of songs and poems in The Message Bible.
“At day’s end I’m ready for sound sleep,
For you, God, have put my life back together.” —Psalm 4 #LIVEWONDERSTRUCK [Tweet this]
“God’s a safe house for the battered,
a sanctuary during bad times.
The moment you relax,
you’re never sorry you knocked.” — Psalm 9 #LIVEWONDERSTRUCK [Tweet this]
“God is the bedrock under my feet,
The castle in which I live,
My rescuing knight.” —Psalm 18 #LIVEWONDERSTRUCK [Tweet this]
“God’s love is meteoric,
His loyalty astronomic,
His purpose titanic,
His verdicts oceanic.
Yet in his largeness
Nothing gets lost;
Not a man, not a mouse,
Slips through the cracks.” —Psalm 36 #LIVEWONDERSTRUCK [Tweet this]
“Take a good look at God’s wonders—
They’ll take your breath away.” —Psalm 66 #LIVEWONDERSTRUCK [Tweet this]
What passage from the Psalms is taking your breath away recently?
