To Sing – James 1:2-4

To Sing – James 1:2-4

It’s hard to keep singing
When sometimes my world
Still looks like the past
All the trials keep coming against
And I just want to cry out why?
But I keep finding the words
To sing to You with joy
On the days when I feel lost
You bring words to sing out loud
My Lord, You say persevere
The glory is still to come
Drought will come to an end
And I will taste the riches
So bring me a song to sing
With great joy of this heart
For perseverance until the rains come
And to Your greatness I will sing again

James 1:2-4

To Persevere

To Persevere (James 1:2-4)

When I fall to my knees
With my prayers screamed out
To Heaven above
That’s when I find You there
To pick me up
Out of the dirt
You place in me Your mighty strength
To keep on keeping on

To persevere
No matter what the trial
To persevere
No matter how great the pain
To persevere
Through the test of the storms
To persevere
Through the trials of the fight

You never leave my side
My comforter in the night
The bringer of joy
With the light of the morning
And rebuilder of this heart
For the great things ahead
So I’ll walk together with You
And persevere through every trial

Verse of the Day – Romans 15:4

Romans 15:4

Romans 15:4

There are things I pray for regularly, things I still hope can be put right, sometimes as each day passes I lose my hope for these things and become discouraged, but then I find a word or vision which reminds me to stay steadfast and wait upon the Lord, lifting my spirit and my hope.

GLORIOUS by MERCYME
The worlds shaking, with the love of God
Great and Glorious, let the whole earth sing
Let it sing

The worlds shaking, with the love of God
Great and Glorious, let the whole earth sing

And all You ever do, is change the old for new
And people, we believe that…

God is bigger than the air I breathe
And the world we’ll leave
God will save the day, and all will say
My Glorious, my Glorious

Clouds are breaking, heavens come to earth
Hearts awakening, let the church bells ring

And all You ever do, is change the old for new
And people, we believe that…

God is bigger than the air I breathe
And the world we’ll leave
God will save the day, and all will say:
My Glorious, my Glorious
My Glorious, my Glorious
My Glorious, my Glorious
My Glorious, my Glorious
My Glorious

God is bigger than the air I breathe
And the world we’ll leave
God will save the day, and all will say:
My Glorious

God is bigger than the air I breathe
And the world we’ll leave
God will save the day, and all will say:
My Glorious, my Glorious
My Glorious, my Glorious
My Glorious

Verse of the Day – James 1:2-4

James 1:2-4

James 1:2-4

Going through a time of test I felt my faith slip at times, but to come out the other side, I realise that actually my faith has become stronger, because it didn’t matter where I was, I was never alone.

WASTELAND by NEEDTOBREATHE
I’m the first one in line to die
When the cavalry comes
Yeah it feels like the great divide
Has already come
Yeah I’m wasting my way through days
losing youth along the way

Oh if God is on my side
Oh if God is on my side
Yeah if God is on my side
Then who can be against me

There was a greatness I thought for awhile
But somehow it changed
Some kind of blindness I used to protect me
From all of my stains
Yeah I wish this was vertigo
But it just feels like I’m falling slow

In this wasteland where I’m livin’
There is a crack in the door filled with light
And it’s all that I need to get by
In this wasteland where I’m livin’
There is a crack in the door filled with light
And it’s all that I need to shine

All of these people I meet
It seems like they’re fine
Yeah in some ways I hope that they’re not
And their hearts are like mine
It’s wrong when it seems like work
To belong all I feel is hurt

In this wasteland where I’m livin’
There is a crack in the door filled with light
And it’s all that I need to get by
In this wasteland where I’m livin’
There is a crack in the door filled with light
And it’s all that I need to shine

Oh if God is on my side
Oh if God is on my side
Yeah if God is on my side
Then who can be against me

1 Peter 4:19

Sometimes it’s easier during times of suffering to lose our spirit of perseverance, when we should draw closer to God and praise Him for what we have, rather than what we have not.

SANCTUARY by KNOW HOPE COLLECTIVE
I’m frightened in Your presence
Humbled by Your power
Longing for Your sacred love
My heart is Your cathedral
Dark and full of mystery
Echoing the sounds of one and in this very moment

This is Your sanctuary
I am Your sanctuary
Jesus, You are worthy
And You have made us holy now

These walls have been my refuge
Offering an anchor
Resting in Your sacred love, ooh
You’ve drawn me to Your altar
I’m here but I have nothing
Crying for the sounds of one in this very moment

This is Your sanctuary
I am Your sanctuary
Jesus, You are worthy
And You have made us holy now

I can feel You here, I can feel you right here
In this moment, in this very moment
I can feel You here, I can feel you right here
In this moment, in this very moment

This is Your sanctuary
I am Your sanctuary
Jesus, You are worthy
You have made us holy

This is Your sanctuary
I am Your sanctuary
Jesus, You are worthy
And You have made us holy

This is Your sanctuary
I am Your sanctuary
Jesus, You are worthy
And You have made us holy now
You made us holy now

2 Thessalonians 3:5

2 Thessalonians 3:5

Too many times do I find myself worn down by everyday trials, in those times I need my heart directing to His love and perseverance, as I find it too easy to feel like I’m struggling alone.

LET IT RAIN by POCKET FULL OF ROCKS
We feel the rain of Your love
We feel the winds of Your spirit
But now the heartbeat of heaven, let us hear

Let it rain
Let it rain
Open the floogates of heaven
Let it rain
Let it rain
Open the floodgates of heaven

Hebrews 10:36

Hebrews 10:36

Following a face to face conversation earlier this evening with a fellow recovering alcoholic and discussing our respective journeys, I was reminded that mine is one of perseverance, I have to keep taking the bumps and bruises, but rise above them all and keep waiting for His perfect timing.

I WILL WAIT by THE CLASSIC CRIME
I will wait

I used to let you fight
(fight for me again)
but now I stand alone
(will you fight for me again?)

I will wait

Will you fight for me again?

Will you fight for me?
(again)
Will you fight for me?
(again)
I will wait for you
I will wait
