Psalm 63:1-11 We need God. We need God alone. We need God completely.
Psalm 8 1. Man is made (Psalm 8:5a).2. Man is the crown of creation (Psalm 8:5). Western society has lost sight of God. It no longer sees man as a creature made in God’s image, whose chief end is “to glorify God and enjoy him forever.” It has eliminated God from its collective conscience.

Psalm 19 shows us 3 ways that God speaks to us: He speaks throughcreation, through the Scripture, and through the saints.
Psalm 103 is a psalm of praise. In it, David is very specific in his praise of God. In verses 1-3 he begins with praising God for who He is and praising God for what He does.
After Nathan confronts King David about his sin with Bathsheba, David confesses his guilt to the Lord in Psalm 51. Just like David, we can take refuge in God’s mercy through repentance.
For Mother’s Day we spend some time digging in to God’s plan for the home found in Psalm 127. The family was God’s idea. He has specific goals and a mission for our families and we need to submit to his plan.
Psalm 145:1-21 is a Psalm about God as a king. This Psalm teaches us several things about God’s kingdom: God’s reign is cross-generational (Psalm 145:4-7). God’s reign is merciful (Psalm 145:8-9). God’s reign is testified by the saints (Psalm 145:10-13). God’s reign is compassionate (Psalm 145:14-20).
David is walking through a deep and dark moment of life in Psalms 13:1-6. In the depths of that moment that he cries out to God asking “Where are you?” We may have felt that way sometime too but just because we’re feeling that way doesn’t mean that those things are true. So in those moments of deep sorrow we need truth to anchor us.
