My Heart Cries Out: Gospel Meditations for Everyday LifeISBN: 9781433556814
"My hope is that this volume will help you to see the Savior more clearly, to understand his grace more deeply, to confess your struggle more honestly, to worship him more fully, and to find in these meditations the motivation to continue to follow the Savior even when he's leading you into unexpected and hard places." -Paul David Tripp
Best-selling author Paul David Tripp invites you into his personal reflections on his experience of God's ever-present grace through the ups and downs of his life. He shares his celebrations, disappointments, cries for help, confessions, and confusions in the form of 120 meditations that were written over many years through various joys and struggles.
Vulnerable yet pastoral and wise, these meditations in the form of verse showcase how God's amazing grace intersects with the mundane, unexpected, messy, and beautiful moments of everyday life.

"As with a timeless hymn lyric, Tripp has the great ability to grasp the vast riches of biblical truth and distill it for us in creative, compelling, and wonderfully practical ways. His writing has regularly shaped how we think as individuals, parents, and songwriters."
--Keith and Kristyn Getty, hymn writers; recording artists
"One of Paul Tripp's great gifts to us is his ability to communicate profound truths in ways that are not only clear and searching, but also beautiful. With this collection of poems and meditations, he leans in to that gift to give us something that is, on the one hand, completely new, and on the other, familiar in its wisdom, insight, and honesty."
--Russ Ramsey, Pastor, Christ Presbyterian Church, Nashville, Tennessee; author, Retelling the Story series
"As I read these meditations, I couldn't help but wonder if they are the types of prayers the Holy Spirit speaks on our behalf when our groans are too deep for words. My Heart Cries Out is a beautiful, honest, and grace-filled collection of reflections from a heart that has been near to the Lord for many years. Your heart will cry out indeed-cry out for joy and thanksgiving as you read the pages of this wonderful book."
--Trillia Newbell, author, Sacred Endurance; If God Is for Us; and Fear and Faith
"As a sage with scars, Paul Tripp offers us contemplation, transparency, beauty, and verse spoken straight from his soul. But the impact of this book surfaces not in the scope of Tripp's gifts or weakness but in the page-by-page celebration of God's unrelenting grace. If you're looking for a daily, creative, and soul-nourishing drip of gospel truth, feast upon the pages of this book!"
--Dave Harvey, Teaching Pastor, Summit Church, Fort Myers, Florida; author, When Sinners Say "I Do" and Letting Go
"This book is theologically rich, biblically faithful, and devotionally nourishing for the soul. My heart was stirred, and my love for the Savior inflamed! Read and be blessed. Read and worship."
--Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
