As we begin our journey through 1 Peter, we are reminded right away that the road to glory (our amazing inheritance) is filled with trials. God is in the midst of our trials, using them to strengthen our faith in action (not just intellect) and to refine our hope so that we are truly looking forward to His return. He promised to “guard” us through His strength, as we journey toward the inheritance He is “keeping” for us in heaven.
There are a few artists who capture the struggle of the Christian faith in their music powerful ways. If you are looking for some music that will encourage you in your trials and will help point your heart toward heaven, here are a few albums you might want to listen to…
Ellie Holcomb, Read Sea Road
Andrew Peterson, The Burning Edge of Dawn
Fernando Ortega, The Shadow of Your Wings
