Blues Psalms

Blues Psalms

Scripture: Psalm 102:1-28 (MSG)

We all get the blues from time to time. It’s just a part of being human. We need the blues, to get through the blahs. Many of the psalms are blues or to use more fancy theological jargon, “laments.” But I like the term blues better because the word is infused with soul. Singing the blues to God will help us get through this pandemic. Through the unique difficulties you and I face. The blues are important because they help us process seasons of change, loss, and pruning. The blues give voice to our pain, so we can press through to praise. The blues found in the psalms are daring and devout prayers. Gutsy and honest. They live in the tension—pleading with God against God. And God works through the blues to transform us from a pray-er to a prophet by helping us believe God will deliver us from the status quo and bring us into a new unseen place in the future. This week we’ll be looking at Psalm 102, the bluesiest Psalm of them all.
