It seems more challenging than ever to "Give Thanks". God never changes and His promises fail not so we have much to give thanks on even in the midst of the turmoil we find ourselves living in. Scripture has many examples of giving thanks for things that are in our daily lives - we will examine them in scripture. Let's not lose our "Thankful Hearts".
This series takes a look at the five different types of psalms, the Hymnal of the Hebrews. We’ll see how God uses the different types of songs to reach our emotions, thoughts and spirit.
