Psalm 30:5 – For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favour lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning. In this study, we will break the verse up into its four main phrases, and digest the message into encouragement and comfort for those whose are defeated and heartbroken.
Joel 2:13 – Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity. In this study we will focus on the idea of rending our hearts, which is a plea from Joel in the middle of Joel 2, and attempt to understand what Joel was asking for when he asked the people to rend their hearts.
