Discover a fresh approach to prayer by reading the 40 day journey through the Psalms.
My version of Psalm One
Life takes new meaning,
When I choose to go God’s way,
I don’t worry about what other people are doing,
They can do their own thing,
My heartfelt joy is found in doing God’s will.
When I take the time,
To listen to his voice,
And, think about what he wants for me,
I realise this is the truly creative life,
That has eternity’s mark.
Psalm One sets the scene for an amazing journey into prayer. In the Psalms I have discovered firsthand some of the rawness and pain experienced by the Psalmist. This ebook is the first 40 Psalms that I have put in my own words. They are a reflection of what was written by the original writer and then brought to our world today. They reflect many of the themes that are common to discouraged, depressed, anxious, fearful people. At times some or all of these things have been true for me. I have used some of these experience and cried out with the Psalmist in my writing.
One definition of found poetry is, “it’s the literary version of a collage”. In finding these Psalms I have gathered together my emotions, feelings and pain and sought to “find” my understanding of what David was saying. It’s the worst possible translation methodology but it’s been a great personal re-discovery of God.
The 40 day journey is a chance to take some time out and listen to God’s voice. God’s praise will last for eternity, we have the great privilege to begin that praise now.
