The Psalms are the songbook of the Bible and a record the heart’s deepest longings and vulnerabilities. The writers of these inspired songs remind us that godly affirmations and raw emotions serve to move us into God’s presence.

Two Is One

If having two is considered having only one, rarely will you find yourself with none. These words act as a reminder that being proactive will always serve us better than being reactive.
