Journey Through Psalms

In January I decided to go on a journey through the Book of Psalms. Over the past decade, I have read portions of this book several times. Each time I have made this journey, God has met me on the dusty trail. On this particular journey I am reading a chapter or two everyday and writing down the verses that speak to me. I am purposefully reading this book as if I have never read it before praying God will provide a fresh revelation along the way.

I invite you to journey with me on this dusty (perhaps even snow covered) trail. Don’t worry about catching up or even staying in step with me. God will be your constant companion.
