The inspiration for this EP was based off the Bible verses from James Ch.1 verses 1-18. We all face trials and tribulations, but God promises us that this fight helps us grow and makes us steadfast.
To actually consider your trials as joy is something I find many Christians struggling with, even myself. Our faith in Christ Jesus is what helps us stand and take these life and spiritual situations head on. I know from experience that my struggles fought by God have been the greatest victories given to me by God (Exodus 14:14 ESV). This EP is dedicated to every one who has ever faced a difficult time.
I pray this project encourages you.

Testing Of Your Faith
2 Count it all joy, my brothers, [b] when you meet trials of various kinds, 3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. 4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
9 Let the lowly brother boast in his exaltation, 10 and the rich in his humiliation, because like a flower of the grass [c] he will pass away. 11 For the sun rises with its scorching heat and withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beauty perishes. So also will the rich man fade away in the midst of his pursuits.
12 Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. 13 Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one. 14 But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. 15 Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.
16 Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers. 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. [d] 18 Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures.
