This week we continue our 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 with a little thought about their subject matter.
- “Be Thou My Vision,” Shane and Shane
- “Trust You,” Aaron Keyes

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

From the group that brought us “Yet Not I But Through Christ In Me” we have “Jesus Strong And Kind” - Simple enough for every age, but profound, Jesus-centred, grace-filled, heart-warming and memorable. A wonderful song to meditate on.
We have featured songs from Shane and Shane a number of times n the Blog, here is a full 56 minute concert from the LINGER Conference last year.
One of my best discoveries during the past year has been the music of Sandra McCracken. I’ve come very late to Sandra but her music is thoughtful and biblical, I’ve shared a number of her songs over the months, here she is in conversation about her songwriting with Matt Merker from Getty Music. Sandra shares about the hymns that have influenced her songwriting, how the biblical posture of lament reminds us that suffering is never meaningless, and the story behind her song "We Will Feast in the House of Zion."
Jared C. Wilson explains the relationship between worship and Scripture in this first of three videos. https://t.co/pcs6REIwih
There is an extra free book this month. The Hiding Place - The amazing story of Corrie Ten Boom, a heroine of the Dutch Resistance who helped Jews escape from the Nazis and became one of the most remarkable evangelists of the 20th century, is told in her classic memoir, now retold for a new generation.
This is a classic book that is well worth investing your time in.
