Delving into the psalmists' recurring choices of praise over panic, she encourages us to reset the rhythm of our days in light of God's sovereignty and strength.

As I opened Psalms for the Anxious Heart, I wondered, “Can there be rich spiritual depth in such small daily portions?” The answer is a resounding YES! You will find hope in times of hopelessness, learn to lament in Day 5, and love the four daily sections to go deeper: Selah, Today's Truth, Listen, and Pray. Expect to find your soul enlarged. Mine was!
