Available to SHIP now; STORE PICKUP in 7-10 days
Gwendolyn Carole Tipton believes that King David kept a journal that became part of the Psalms. He wrote of his sorrow, pain, joy, gratefulness and concluded each message with words of praise to God. Lamenting the pandemic season is her book of Psalms. Like King David, Tipton's journal examines the events of the day with myriad observations and aspirations. During the pandemic, she wrote about things happening in her and others' lives that fostered abrupt changes in their comings and goings and emotional feelings about how to simply be still. Throughout this book, the author puts forth numerous Bible verses to validate her belief in God's covenant with us and present prayers of supplication petitioning God for help and intervention. Our lives are changing, and we are not at the helm of the transformation. Journaling will help us get through today, the days ahead, and remember the past.
