Lockdown Mental Health Support – Psalm 118

Last night’s mental health livestream was on Psalm 118: “Will it be OK in the end?” It’s so easy at the moment to be full of worries about how it’s all going to turn out. Maybe we think of what’s happening to our children, or to our jobs, or families, and the like. We just don’t know what’s going to happen. Psalm 118 helps us to be confident that things will work out in the end.

These verses really struck me this time round:

It is better to take refuge in the Lord
    than to trust in humans.
It is better to take refuge in the Lord
    than to trust in princes.

I am aiming to do a session each Friday night during lockdown. I find that it’s helpful for my own mental health, let alone anyone else’s!

Last week’s one was on Psalm 27 – “Don’t give up hope”. They will all be available on the playlist.
