Jonah’s Psalm

Today’s sermon was from Jonah 2:1-10, Jonah’s prayer from the belly of the whale, or great fish. Here’s a song based on that same text. If you heard the sermon, this will serve as a good backdrop or reminder. If you didn’t hear it, the link to listen is below.

Here’s the text from Jonah.


The beauty of holding your tongue

In studying for today’s lesson on Psalm 73, I read this verse:

If I had said, “I will speak thus,” I would have betrayed the generation of your children.

The Psalmist was in the midst of a personal thought crisis, and really wanted to speak his piece. But he didn’t, at least not immediately. He […]

Until I came into the sanctuary of God

“… this book brings us into the sanctuary, draws us off from converse with men, with the politicians, philosophers, or disputers of this world, and directs us into communion with God, by solacing and reposing our souls in him, lifting up and letting out our hearts towards him. Thus may we be in the mount […]

But I will sing!

But I will sing of your strength; I will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning. For you have been to me a fortress and a refuge in the day of my distress. O my Strength, I will sing praises to you, for you, O God, are my fortress, the God who shows […]

Psalm 111 – praising God in the congregation

Praise the LORD!

I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation.

Great are the works of the LORD, studied by all who delight in them. Full of splendor and majesty is his work, and his righteousness endures […]

Out of the depths

The best part of reading the Psalms is that they need little explanation. You read them, you know exactly what the psalmist is saying. Like Psalm 130.

Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord! O Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleas for mercy!


How happy!

Where do you find delight? Join us in church today as we delight in the Lord’s instruction!

How happy is the man who does not follow the advice of the wicked or take the path of sinners or join a group of mockers! Instead, his delight is in the Lord’s instruction, and he meditates on […]

The lie we want to believe

We still believe that original lie, don’t we, just like Adam and Eve?

(Adam and Eve) had been introduced to the lie that would now rule the world: The lie that the creature can be like the Creator. All other lies are but an extension of this one. Every time we sin, we affirm the […]

God is not dead!

Need a good Word to start today? How about this from Psalm 18:46?

“The LORD lives! Praise to my Rock! May the God of my salvation be exalted.” NLT

Because God lives, He is both a Rock and a Savior. As a Rock, He is unchanging and impregnable. As a Savior, He offers forgiveness […]
