Waiting For Good News

Good news. We all wait for it, listen for it, hope for it.

Whether we wait for news of peace in a battle we’re close to in place or time, news of supply when we’re at the end of our rope, or news of joy when we’re wondering if life indeed holds any, we all love to hear good news.

Today, as I consider my own longing for good news, I am reminded of those I love. God is the greatest source of good news that greets me today – such peace in knowing that I am/we are not alone in my/our challenges. My wife, children, family and friends are the purest of good news to me, coming to me again today and reminding me that to be deeply loved, and to deeply love, are treasures that most newspapers and magazines will not linger over today – but which I will enjoy.

Look for, listen for, your good news today.


Sheltering Mercy and Endless Grace help us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation. Sheltering Mercy helps the reader pray Psalms 1-75; Endless Grace leads in prayer through Psalms 76-150.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. Each book contains 75 prayers drawn from the Book of Psalms, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning there. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

These artful, poetic, and classic devotional books are a perfect gift, and feature compelling stunning illustrations and hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms. Co-written with Ryan Whitaker Smith, Brazos Publishing.
