Kellee’s Playlist

Kellee's PlaylistWhen we encounter suffering in this life, we have an incredible choice before us. Either we run toward God or run away from Him. David says, “I have set the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken” (Psalm 16:8). Jesus’ brother James, tells us to, “Consider it pure joy, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.” (James 1:2) Jeremiah found hope when he chose to remember the steadfast love of the Lord, his mercy and great faithfulness. My friend, Kellee, is showing me how to run toward God and wholeheartedly trust him in her time of trial. She is part of our Trinity Church worship team. Many of you know and have been praying for her mom, Judy, as she battles cancer. A month or so ago, I asked Kellee what worship songs were encouraging her, and her family. She started rattling them off, so I asked her to write them down. Now I’m listening to a Spotify playlist made from songs she recently handed to me on “little Miss Princess” paper.

Worship music is a wonderful way to “always set the Lord before us” so that we will not be shaken. These songs help us to persevere. They cause joy to spring up inside because of God’s steadfast love, mercy and faithfulness. These songs also give us the words to pray when it’s hard to find our own words. Now I share Kellee’s playlist with you, so you may be encouraged in whatever kind of trial you or your loved one is facing. As you listen, remember to pray for, and reach out in love, to those you know who are facing trials. This is after all what it means to “bear one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ.”(Galatians 6:2)
