Psalms #8 – Final Thoughts

Psalms

This is the last post in the Psalms series and we hope you have enjoyed reading it as much as we have enjoyed writing it. The RCG team has really enjoyed researching and studying psalms. We have discovered loads of things we didn’t know about the psalms.

The Psalms were not intended to be read, they were simply the writer’s, who was mostly David, emotions throughout his life. Often when we read them we say he must have been thinking one way or another whilst he wrote a specific psalm. We simply don’t know what he was thinking but that does not mean we cant learn anything from them. In this series we have been looking at possibilities of where and when David wrote a Psalm so we can try to understand some of what he was thinking whilst he wrote the psalms. We’d finally like to say a quick thank you to everyone who has read any of the posts. Please email us any feedback to rcgteam@yahoo.co.uk. Stay tuned for more posts and the next series which is coming soon.

As this is the penultimate post in what has been a very successful Psalms series, I thought we could return to a Psalm that we have already looked into the meaning of and tell you something very interesting about it.

The Western Front was home to much of the fighting in World War One and some of the worst battles the world have seen. In this post, I will be explaining how, after losing the most precious thing in their lives, devastated parents held onto their faith with God. This is displayed thought the message they chose to have inscribed on their sons headstone; the message of the Lord.

Psalms #6 – Psalm 117

In this post we won’t be explaining the meaning of Psalm 117, but we will be doing something equally important. The Bible has been translated into hundreds of different languages and is currently being translated into many many more. We would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank all workers and volunteers who are and have been involved in translating the Bible. Below is a collection of Psalm 117 and some of the languages it has been translated into. I believe that millions of people have been and will be moved by reading the Bible in their own language. I hope you agree with me and acknowledgement of how amazing the Bible is, like this post or post an uplifting comment.

Psalms #5 – Psalms 23

Psalms 23 is probably the most well-known Psalm in the bible. This post in the Psalms Series is going to be a bit different to the others. As this psalm is probably the most well-known and there are many explanations to what David meant dotted around the internet, I am going to talk about what can be learnt from this Psalm however I will leave a link to a few websites which talk more about the meaning.
