Are you looking to get more out of your time studying the Bible? Or maybe you're ready to finally start building a consistent, daily quiet time with the Lord? If that sounds like you, then Nicole would like to personally invite you to join her Help! My Bible is Alive FREE 30-Day Challenge, kicked off on February 1st. To sign up, head over to

This is the second episode in our Love Psalms series. Here is the first episode.

If you are in a season of discouragement, loss, or grief, come study Psalm 6 with us.

Discussed This Week:
• Have you accepted that trouble and suffering is a part of this world, not the exception but the rule?
• Other Psalms of lament: 8, 12, 32, 38, 46, 51, 102, 130
• One of Nicole’s favorite definition of mercy: “God’s affection set on relieving our affliction”
• Even if we have brought grief on ourselves, like David has in Psalm 6, we can still cry out for mercy.
• Does God punish us for our sin? (Yes, according to 1 Thessalonians 4:3-8.) Nicole explains how with grace, the penalty for our sin is removed and we can have right standing with God. But grace does not mean that if we go on sinning that we do not receive consequences.
• How do we handle it when God doesn’t seem to come to our aid?
• The confident turn in Psalm 6 that shows us in the midst of suffering we can have confident hope in who God is.
• Three questions: Do I need to repent of something in my life? Do I need to have confidence in my grief in sorrow? Do I need to believe that God has heard my cry?
