Psalm 42 and 43 with Mike Emlet
“Do you ever get whiplash from reading the Psalms? You know that experience, where the psalmist is one minute singing God’s praises and seems to be delighted to be one of God’s children, and then the next moment he is lamenting the day he was born. What do we do with that kind of pendulum swing in the Scriptures? What does that imply about the nature of the Christian life? Well, that’s the question that Mike Emlet and I tackle in our episode of CCEF On the Go today, and I hope you join us and I hope you enjoy it.” Host, Alasdair Groves
