The Book of Romans
The Book of Daniel
The Psalms are a collection of songs, poems and prayers written to God by real people like you and me, expressing real joys, pains, sorrows, hopes and fears.
The writer of this Psalm was in a crisis. He felt incredibly low, as if life was rapidly passing him by and he had nothing to show for it... Yet in the middle of his pain and difficulty, he found that God had wonderful purposes for him; his life had meaning that went well beyond himself.
