Share Your Playlist

Worship on  Sunday morning is part of my favorite thing about church.  I connect deeply with Jesus through song lyrics that deliver the truths found in scripture.  The truth of scripture revealed in just a little different format really helps solidify the deeper meaning for me.  

Last year when I was really struggling with depression and anxiety, I found that worshiping at home really made a difference in my day.  So I began searching for songs that we sing at church that were my favorites and that move me closer to Jesus.  I began very shyly at first, only singing when no one else was around.  But then I decided that it was ok for the whole household to her me sing.  (I do love to sing)  

I set up a wireless speaker in my kitchen and would play my playlist from my phone over the speaker about as loud as it would go.  I would stand in the sunshine streaming through my kitchen window and lift my face and voice to the Son!  I've now added a second speaker to my bedroom so I can sing where ever I am!!

If you have Amazon Prime, you can download lots of music free.  If not, songs are usually reasonably priced around $1.29.  

Want to see what I'm singing?  Here's my playlist:

    • How Great Thou Art by Trisha Yearwood
    • O Praise the Name by Hillsong Worship
    • No Longer Slaves by Bethel Music
    • Just Say Jesus by 7eventh Time Down
    • Great I Am by Phillips, Craig and Dean
    • Your Great Name by Natalie Grant
    • Revelation Song by Kari Jobe
    • Unstoppable God by Elevation Worship
    • Resurrecting by Elevation Worship
    • Call Upon the Lord by Elevation Worship
Some days I play it all the way through and others days, depending on how much time I have, I will just pick and choose a few songs that have lyrics that I need to hear that day.

Worship doesn't have to be confined to just a Sunday morning.  I find that it completely shapes my mind when I desperately need to be close to my Jesus.  Don't have a great singing voice?  Who cares!  Scripture says to make a joyful noise unto the Lord!  Go for it!!

Do you have songs that you listen to over and over that help uplift your spirits?  Share them with us!

  1. Pretty much anything from Bethel Music or Hillsong theses days. I've also got my son's worship EP on repeat. He has a full length album coming out soon with my son-in-law and their close friend.
