Psalm 4 Rachel Mumaw

Hey, it’s 4/4 and we’re reading Psalm 4! I’m sure that wasn’t planned at all!

This Psalm is a bit of an emotional rollercoaster, from “So be afraid, and don’t sin! Think hard about it in your bed and weep over it!” to “But you have filled my heart with more joy than when their wheat and wine are everywhere!” But it’s a good song about the ebbs and flows of a life of faith. We cry out to God, we do our best to follow God’s laws and to reflect on our sins in a world that often does not, and we trust at the end of the day that God is faithful and will give us peaceful sleep. Wherever you are in your faith journey, know that it is all part of God’s plan and God’s relationship with us, and each ebb is just as important as each flow.

Prayer: For peace
