What is our response to distress? What is our reaction when we are in the midst of trials/hardship?
Psalm 123 is both an encouragement and a challenge to us when we are in midst of the great challenges that we face in this life. The psalmist shows us how to live life "in between"...how to watch & wait with hopeful expectation, knowing that our God is always doing his redeeming work in us, around us, and through us!

What is worship? What is the purpose of worship? Why do we do it? Why is church important?
Psalm 122 is the song of a person who has decided to go to church & worship...it is an excellent example of what happens when people worship.
The 3rd Psalm of our "Songs of Ascent", Psalm 122, confronts some of our misunderstandings and our false notions about church and worship and challenges us to find the joy in honoring and giving credit to our Creator for who He is and all He is up to in us, around us, and through us!
