The outstanding five-piece, pop-acoustic worship group I Am They returns with a follow-up to their moving self-titled debut album. Trial & Triumph confronts the everyday struggles we face and reminds listeners to place their victory in the eternal security of Jesus Christ.
The first single released from the album, Crown Him, is all about surrender. As Jon McConnell, the lead vocalist from the song shares, "sometimes we lose sight of the eternal purposes our lives carry. We can get so worried about our own agendas and building a kingdom for ourselves that we forget that it’s really not about us or our kingdoms at all.” Matthew 6:33 says, ‘But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.’ Jesus wants us to come to Him before anything; to surrender and make Him king of our lives and He will always have our back. As people hear this song, we pray that they would be reminded that whatever it is we pour our lives into, it is meant to magnify and glorify God and crown Him as king over everything: our struggles, our burdens, our victories – even the songs we sing. May we live daily in His victory and for His glory.”
