This Week: “Songs of Lament” – Psalm 6, Psalm 13, and Psalms 42-43


The psalms of “lament” help us to reconcile what we are inclined to believe about life with what we actually encounter. The songs of lament function as a means of grace to assure us that there is a God-directed order—even in the midst of any present chaos we might be experiencing.
