Sing a New Song
Humans are relational, emotional beings—and nothing reveals this more beautifully than the book of Psalms. As the psalmists pour out their hearts to God, they uncover the multifaceted character of the Lord almighty and reveal his grace-filled plans for his people. In this, the psalms also invite us into honest prayer and praise.
In Sing a New Song: A Woman’s Guide to the Psalms, author Lydia Brownback says:
Sing a new song! The call is sprinkled throughout the psalms to express the joy of new blessings received from God’s hand. Those blessings weren’t limited to the psalmists’ days; they are meant for us as well.
