  1. Psalm 30, is the foundation for Darrell Evans’ worship song, “Trading My Sorrows,” and a great reminder that pain and suffering “may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning” (30:5). It is, of course, poetic, after all, this is a song. For some, the “night” lasts longer than others, but we know our entire lives on earth are but a fleeting moment compared to eternity. Whatever difficulties we face here, we are assured, “You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy…Lord my God, I will praise you forever” (30:11-12).

    Psalm 31 could easily be used as a redress for our modern society. Many times Christians are looked down upon and discounted as fools, those who chase after the unseen. I think this is especially true for our teenagers and those on college campuses where the diversity movement tempts and draws people away from the Lord. I pray our girls will remember 31:6-8 and know for certain, “How abundant are the good things that you have stored up for those who fear you” (31:19).

    Psalm 32 includes the text from a wonderful song, “You are my hiding place” (32:7). From the song, “you always fill my hearts with songs of deliverance whenever I am afraid, I will trust in you.” Great song, great reminder.

    Psalm 33 reminds us of the majesty of our Lord, “Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the people of the wold revere him. For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, ” and it stood firm.” (33:8-9).

    It’s important to note our worship songs have their roots in the Bible, many of which come from Psalms themselves. If not based on the Bible, why would we sing? How could we offer praise otherwise? Reading through the psalms reminds me look for the root of our worship songs, to find the biblical foundation for the words and meaning of the songs. Then I can sing more fully and will great joy before the Lord!
