Thy Will by Hillary Scott & The Scott Family
This song can obviously be anyone’s to sing about submitting to God’s will. The story behind it is the singer from Lady Antebellum and her miscarriage.
Sweetly Broken by Jeremy Riddle
At the cross, I’m “sweetly broken, wholly surrendered.”
I Will Trust In You by Lauren Daigle
Lauren lost her grandfather during the writing of this song. She connects Jeremiah 29:11-13 to the message of this song.
Sparrows by Jason Gray
The message of this song is God understands how we are inclined to fear and that it is the enemy’s main weapon against us. Just as God takes care of the birds (sparrows), he will take care of us.
Diamonds by Hawk Nelson
This song compares how we are like diamonds. Diamonds are refined by fire. God also uses pressure and trials to refine us. He is making us into diamonds.
King of the World by Natalie Grant
One of my favorites! Her first line is “When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world?” Indeed, when did I forget? I often take on the whole weight of the world myself. God doesn’t need me to do this!
Touch the Sky by Hillsong United
“Upward Falling” and seeing God when falling on your knees. It’s the complete opposite of today’s worldview of climbing to the top.
Chain Breaker by Zach Williams
I’m not sure this one needs much of an explanation! Who among us doesn’t have chains that need breaking? Another of my absolute favs!
Different by Micah Tyler
In the beginning of the song, the artist explains the meaning of the song as he changed it when he had a series of events happen in his life.
Whom Shall I Fear by Chris Tomlin
When it feels like the world is against you, this song is so comforting to remember you have an army of angels on your side.
O Come to the Altar by Elevation Worship
This song beckons those hurting and broken to come to Jesus whose arms are open wide.
10,000 Reasons by Matt Redman
Love this one! I can feel my soul singing it!
Bulletproof by Citizen Way
This is an upbeat song about the armor of God from Ephesians 6.
Even If by MercyMe
This song is a reminder that God is worthy of praise even in those situations that you have prayed for a different ending.
Strangely Dim by Francesca Battistelli
This song is about focusing on Jesus and shutting out the rest of the world. Perhaps even taking a fast from social media.
Need You Now by Plumb
Redeemed by Big Daddy Weave
Redeemed came from a place of the singer never feeling like he was good enough. For him it was weight, for you it may be something else, but it is always something for everyone.
Good Good Father by Chris Tomlin
Knowing you always have a good father taking care of you that is a better parent that you could ever imagine is the comforting message of this song.
O’ Lord by Lauren Daigle
God will never leave your side! Yes, we need to be reminded. Make sure to listen to this one today!
Oceans by Hillsong United
God calls us out into the water to test our faith. He is waiting for us there.
