Our world has been turned upside down, we want to return to normal, yet we sit in the unknown and that can cause massive anxiety! Today Perry and Shawna welcome author Becky Harling to the show to talk about her new devotional: Psalms for the Anxious Heart (www.moodypublishers.com). In our conversation you’ll find that the Psalms are the vaccine for our anxious hearts. First, the Psalms show us that we don’t to muster up enough faith: We can just fall on the One who is faithful.
Then, they also encourage us to be good with the waiting because God is working in the now of the unknown. Next, the Psalms also give us permission to express any and every emotion that we have. Because that’s what the Psalmists do! Including the emotion of feeling cut off from God. Then, the Psalms show us that God is our refuge. And finally the Psalms don’t condemn us for our feeble faith, but remind us of God’s unshakeable love for our trembling hearts. See what I mean? The vaccine for anxiety!
