Speaking to God from the Heart
The Christian life is marked by joys and struggles, and much like the psalmists, our hearts long to cry out to God, our maker, sustainer, and redeemer—in both praise and calls for help.
Paul David Tripp, author of My Heart Cries Out: Gospel Meditations for Everyday Life says:
The life of faith for a follower of Jesus Christ is messy. We live in a fallen world where every believer will deal with disappointment, grief, pain, and confusion. There is something about the freedom, creativity, and emotionality of poetry that allows me to capture this spiritual struggle using a different style in the form of verse, written as I interacted and communicated with my Lord and Savior.
A 6-Day Devotional
Over the course of six days, watch videos and read Scripture as you follow along with these gospel meditations adapted from My Heart Cries Out: Gospel Meditations for Everyday Life by Paul David Tripp and see how God’s amazing grace intersects with the mundane, unexpected, messy, and beautiful moments of everyday life.
