Encouraging Songs

There are so many songs that are so encouraging to me. I love being able to worship God through music. These songs have brought me so much peace in the hospital or whenever I'm really sick. When I listen to these if I'm in the hospital, it reminds me what is important and that God is in control. It's very peaceful in the midst of the chaos. When I listen to these songs when I'm not in the hospital or really sick, it reminds me that God brought me through those hard times. It's so encouraging.

I thought that I would share some of the songs with you! On my ipod I have a playlist called "Encouraging". I love having all those songs in one playlist. 

I'll put the name of the song and then the artist after it. The ones that are bold are songs that are really encouraging me at the moment.

These are more upbeat songs.

  • Glorious Day (Living He Loved Me)-Casting Crowns
  • Courageous-Casting Crowns
  • I Will Sing of My Redeemer- Selah and Barlow Girl

  • All I Need-Bethany Dillon
These are some of my favorites. They are very powerful and really make me thing.

  • Carry Me- Audrey Assad
  • I Lift My Hands- Chris Tomlin
  • I Will Rise- Chris Tomlin
  • You are Good- Nicole Normand

  1. I love love love the sound of an 'encouraging' playlist! At the moment when I'm in need of that, I just search the 'Christian' genre ones on my iPod and skip through a few, but having a separate list is a great idea.

    A few of mine:

    I Am - Jill Phillips
    Irene - TobyMac. And also Get Back Up.
    He Will Carry Me - Mark Schultz
    One Thing Remains - Jeremy Riddle
    You Never Let Go - Matt Redman

    ..and those are just the ones I actually have a copy of. I'm sure there are a load more worship songs but I can't think of specific ones off the top of my head.

  2. This is great! Some of my favorites are:

    All the Broken Pieces - Matthew West
    Farther Along - Josh Garrels
    Long Way Home - Steven Curtis Chapman
    The Saints - Josh Wilson
    The Redeemer - Sanctus Real
    The Healing Has Begun - Matthew West
    Desert Song - Hillsong United
    Strong Enough - Matthew West
    Every Little Prison (Deliver Me) - Matt Maher

    Fun fact: I made an "Encouraging" playlist after I read this!

  3. Jadon Lavik's "Changing Happy" is very encouraging to me. Enjoyed sharing your blog, thanks for the post.
