We are in a 5-week series entitled, "Psalms: Praying Our Emotions." We will be looking at how the Psalms teach us to pray the emotions of Anger, Sadness, Fear, and Joy. Emotions are important because they reveal our hearts and what we care most about. We are not to give up our emotions (suppress or ignore them), give in to our emotions (act on every impulse we have), but GIVE our emotions to God, that is, pray our emotions to the God who made our emotions.
In honor of senior night, we look at how to pray our fears from Psalm 23. What I want all our seniors to know as they leave college and head off into the world is that God is their good shepherd, they need to face the darkness, and that they are not alone when they do so.
Seniors, may the Lord bless you and keep you. You are loved.
