This week we on Beside The Burn we turn back to James asking How Do We Cope WIth Suffering?
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 is the song for today
- “He Is Wonderful,” Lowana Wallace

I’ll add the songs to this playlist each day.
