This week we begin a new series “How do we cope with James?” This week we ask “How do we cope with ... Speaking?” We all face difficulties in life and James has some great advice.
The Gospel Coalition have produced a playlist of 100 songs inspired by the book of James, and I intend to share some of those songs each day on the Blog, but you can listen to the full playlist during the next few weeks as we continue our studies in this book. I have benefited greatly from listening to these songs over and over again as I have asked God to speak from His word.
You can stream the playlist on Spotify or on Apple Music right now.
Here are the songs for today.
This week is all about How we cope with Speaking.
- “May the Words,” Ellie Holcomb - A beautiful song asking that our words would be acceptable in the sight of God
- “Take My Life and Let it Be,” Paul Zach, featuring Liz Vice - a beautiful acoustic version of this hymn. verse 3
Take my voice and let me sing
always, only, for my King.
Take my lips and let them be
filled with messages from thee,

Doing What’s Right In Our Own Eyes
How Long Does It Take To Read The Bible
This Website was mentioned in Tides on Thursday, it is a page giving timings for how long it takes tech average person to read the individual books of the bible. It may surprise you how little time it actually takes. It also gives you lots of options as to how long it will take to read the whole bible or just the New or Old Testaments.

Do you long for revival? From time to time, the Lord has brought supernatural renewal to his people using the ordinary means of grace—prayer, the preaching and reading of Scripture, and singing the wonders of the gospel of Christ. As Alistair Begg reminds us in this clip from Sing! Global 2020, no situation is hopeless when almighty God is on our side. Sometimes, when things seem most bleak, God is merely setting the stage for his surprising work of grace. So we walk forward with confidence, proclaiming the Word of truth, and waiting patiently on the Lord.
