Fifty-two meditations on Psalm 27 instruct and encourage believers to worship God through the ups and downs of life.
Psalm 27 is a psalm of trouble and worship, of difficulty and beauty, of the evil of people against people, and of the mercy of God. Because of its honesty about life in this fallen world, Psalm 27 speaks into the life of every believer. At the same time it places joyful and self-sacrificing worship right next to the trouble that is the psalm's background theme. This juxtaposition makes Psalm 27 unique, interesting, practical, challenging, and encouraging.
A Shelter in the Time of Storm takes readers through this roller-coaster-ride of a psalm in fifty-two brief and engaging meditations. These meditations are designed to fill hearts with a patient hope that grows stronger as the trouble-spotted days go by. Reflection questions at the end of the chapter make these meditations thought-provoking and practical.

Taken as a whole, they offer solace to those facing life's trials, while also asking the reader to examine the idols and illusions that keep us from experiencing the fullness of God's peace and joy. The meditations vary in length from relatively short poems to longer writings that require time and reflection in order to get the most benefit. Journaling after each meditation would be ideal. I highly recommend this devotional.
