Once there was a person tormented night after night, waking from terrible nightmares of a pack of vicious dogs attacking the person. One night, the person prayed before going to sleep that this nightmare would cease. The dream occurred again, but this time the self in the dream faced the dogs; they immediately turned to flowers!
This psalm is something like that dream, only greater. You’ll read verses of wonderful trust in the power and protection of God. When you are frightened by anything or anyone, just pray this psalm. Each verse is like a beautiful flower whose fragrance can fill your heart with peace.
On Wednesdays from this point on, we continue to read
the Psalms in numerical order, beginning with Psalm 14.
These Firestarters are from a new edition of The Bible Through the Seasons being developed for families with children. For the Firestarters in the original edition, I recommend the ebook.
