Personalizing a Psalm can feel strange at first. I felt a bit inadequate when thinking of placing my own words into scripture. Wasn’t the Psalm fine as it was? But as I started personalizing the Psalm, the benefit became apparent. Reflected in the words was my immediate yearning, hurt, or joy. The prayer changed as my days changed! I also became aware of how the word I used to describe God reflected my relationship with God, my need of God, on that day, at that time.
