The Christian person is called to lament. To lament is to engage with the sorrow we are feeling even if, and perhaps especially when, what we are feeling may not line up with how things really are. Psalm 13 helps us discover what lament looks like and how we can bring our sorrows to God.

Wise Living - Part 8 - In Need of a Nap
Jeremy Mulder • April 26, 2020 • Jeremy Mulder
What do you do when you feel like the stress is going to overwhelm you? What happens when you hit that moment where you feel like, "none of it matters anymore?" The story of Elijah offers us some clues. After his greatest victory for Israel and for God, Elijah still feels like there is no reason to go on living and hides under a bush–but he doesn't stay there. So how does he go from hiding under a bush to running to the mountain of God? That's the question we'll consider in this sermon.
Wise Living - Part 7 - Settling In

Most of us live our lives waiting for the next good thing to happen. We endure the circumstances of today because we have something to look forward to in the future. God's plan for his people, however, is that their knowledge of future security in Christ would give them the confidence to settle in to, and not just endure, their current circumstances.
