The De-Stressing Psalm

Join Pastor Bob for another Soul Soothing Sunday.   Today he begins a series on Psalms 120 - 137, called the Psalms of Ascent.  The series is entitled "UNTIL THEN..." and will focus on Psalms/songs sung by the Israelites as they journeyed yearly to Jerusalem to celebrate the 3 yearly feasts of Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles

Bob draws the comparison to our journey here on earth that, for believers, ends when we enter eternity and the New Jerusalem that awaits us.

Today's focus, Psalm 120 is The De-Stressing Psalm (not distressing) and it follows the Psalmist challenges of living in a cruel, lying, deceitful world where integrity and truthfulness is scarce.  It is a dark world plagued with hatred, brutality and prejudice.

The Psalmist's de-stressing hope lies in verse 1; God is always near, hears our prayer and knows our plight living in a cruel world.

"No matter how bad it gets, God is with us and one day, one day this cruel world will pass away and we will enter the New Jerusalem"

Until then, sing of God's faithfulness.
