The Psalminizers — Jason, Melanie, Jim and I —go through an introduction to Psalm 119 as we reach the longest of the Psalms. We’ll begin to read it this week and then continue to explore it for the next several weeks.
As we begin a journey over the next nine weeks into what the Bible tells us about where we are going, we start by understanding the start.
Jason and I go through Psalms 115-118 in a special “Zippy the Wonder Snail” edition of Songs for Our Temple as we continue our one year journey through these songs praising God and applying His truth to our lives.
After seven months of horrifying war, the last few weeks have been inspiring as the Ukrainian Army, with the help of western weapons and local courage that no weapons could provide, have reclaimed swaths of occupied land.

As we conclude this Psalm, we turn to the question of what are we going to do? Are we making the right choices with our service?
Jim takes us through Psalms 112-114 as we continue our one year journey through these songs praising God and applying His truth to our lives.
As we turn to the next part of Psalm 2, how do we understand the language of the Messiah being “begotten”? What does that tell us about the confidence we can have in Him?
Melanie helps us to unpack one of the most challenging of Psalms, 109, along with the lofty joy of Psalms 110-111.

Here’s another secret though: they aren’t anybody’s.
