From the Heart: Are You Packed & Ready?

The preacher said, where did you get those birds? The boy said, I trapped them in the field. What are you going to do with them, the preacher ask? Oh, I’m going to play with them for a while and then I’ll feed them to my cat at home. They are just field birds and they can’t sing very well.

From the Heart: No Relief is Found

Psalm 88, written by a godly man named Heman, stands alone in the psalter of its unrelenting sorrow and gloom. Unlike David, whose despair usually gave way to hope, Heman’s psalm ends with the word “darkness.” But how can such a woeful psalm encourage us?
