The Overwhelming Flood

Pastor Amy Epp
The flood is rising and I am about to be overwhemed, the Psalmist says. We've all felt overwhelmed, anxious and despairing. The Psalmist gives us words of laments and helps us hand those emotions to the one who loves us.
Show Notes

When if feels like life is too much, when people suck, when stress is eating us up, when injustice is rampant and we can't stand it, the Psalms are there for us.  The Psalmist lets it all out at God in anger, blame, despair and grief and God takes it.  Though we feel like the church doesn't want us to express our sadness or our anger, we never should feel like God is sending that message.  Pastor Amy allows the Psalmist to speak and shares some of her own experiences of feeling the rising, overwhelming flood, knowing God to be present, loving mother through the storm.
