This week we begin a new series “How do we cope with James?” This week we ask “How do we cope with ... Trials?” 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 listen 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.
Today the songs are mostly an introduction to worshiping God.
“Steadfast,” Sandra McCracken. Anything by Sandra will bless your soul, here she sings of the Steadfast God as we are lead through trials to find Steadfastness/Perseverance.
“Morning Song (Give Me Jesus),” Antoine Bradford - a simple song where we just simply ask for Jesus.
“O Praise the Name,” Shane and Shane - a great hymn of praise to God.
“May You Be Glorified,” John van Deusen
