As a preface, I don’t know a ton of Christian music and it’s because I’m super purposeful about when and where I listen to it. I don’t like it as background music because I don’t want to become desensitized to the meaning of what is being said or what I am saying to God. That’s certainly not how everyone encounters music; it’s just the way I am around this type of music. That means that a lot of my music comes from recommendations or worship experiences. Here’s a few that are really resonating with me in my times of prayer and worship:
Even When It Hurts (Praise Song) Live – Hillsong UNITED
I know there’s abundance happening in a lot of spaces in my life and so it might seem like a contradiction but this song? It feels like it’s been the song of my heart the last few months.
No Longer Slaves // Jonathan David & Melissa Helser // We Will Not Be Shaken Official Lyric Video
I love so much of this, but one of my favorite lines is, “You split the sea so I could walk right through it, my fears were drowned in perfect love; You rescued me so I could stand and sing, ‘I am a child of God…'”
Pieces (Official Lyric Video) // Brave New World // Amanda Cook
“It isn’t shy, it’s unashamed, You’re love is proud to be seen with me. You don’t give your heart in pieces, You don’t hide yourself to tease us. Uncontrolled, uncontained, Your love is a fire burning bright for me…”
