God knew about the benefits of music to help us deal with stress, to be healthier, happier and even holier, which may explain why the largest and longest book in the Bible is a book of songs. They are called psalms, and we are going to dive deep into these psalms as we are currently walking through some of the deepest, darkest, national stress of our lifetimes. Over the next several weeks, we are going to listen to a song that God gave to a shepherd named, David., which I believe could be called “God’s greatest hit.” It is the 23rd Psalm, and it is probably the best-known chapter in the entire Bible. Of the 150 psalms in this collection, the 23rd Psalm is the most popular and best known. It is only 118 words in English, but it is probably the most familiar 118 words in the hundreds of thousands of words that are found in the Bible. I can tell you as I’ve gone back and read this psalm over and over and over, it does make you feel good. It does lower your stress level. You realize there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and these important truths do bring the sunshine from out behind the clouds.

  • The Last Walk - February 14, 2021

    I love what Jerry Seinfeld said, “According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking and number two is death. This means to the average person if you have to go to a funeral you are better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.” Whether or not you fear death you do have to c...
