live like you're loved by hawk nelson

“and live like you know you're valuable /
like you know the one that holds your soul /
cause mercy has called you by your name /
don't be afraid to live in that grace”

the first time i heard this song, it really opened my eyes. it revealed the way i've been living my life, without even realizing it. an upbeat song that's a great mood booster.

no longer slaves by bethel music

“You split the sea
so i could walk right through it /
my fears are drowned in perfect love /
You rescued me
and I will stand and sing /
i am a child of God”
no longer slaves
grace, inspiration, and jesus image concert, party, and music image
i! love! this! song! so! much! we sing it at my youth group all the time, and it never fails to give me goosebumps and simply make me happy. call me weird, but i can't sing along to this song without smiling. since i was little, i've always seen God as my Father, and i as his beloved daughter. when i first found this song, i fell in love with it.

our god by chris tomlin

“water You turned into wine;
opened the eyes of the blind /
there's no one like you;
none like you /
into the darkness You shine
out of the ashes we rise /
there's no one like you;
none like you”
our god
god image god, lord, and psalm image
the most uplifting, powerful song you'll probably hear today. it's a great song that's easy to jump around to and yell the lyrics out.

flawless by mercyme

“could it possibly be
that we simply can’t believe /
that this unconditional
kind of love would be enough /
to take a filthy wretch like this
and wrap him up in righteousness /
but that’s exactly what He did”
“take a breath smile and say
right here right now i’m ok /
because the cross was enough”
quotes, enough, and motivation image love, bible, and quotes image
this is such an important and beautiful song. it's perfect for times when you feel unworthy of God's love, or maybe disqualified. it's a reminder of how God sees you; and He sees you through the same love that was displayed through the cross, which has made you flawless.

he said by group 1 crew

“who you are ain't what your going through
so don't let it get the best of you /
cause God knows everything you need,
so you ain't gotta worry /
you may be knocked down now
but just believe what He said”
he said
christian, faith, and words image god, inspiration, and life image
this one is just a happy, upbeat song that's easy to listen to, and it of course has a great message and important reminder.

king of my heart by steffany gretzinger

“let the King of my heart /
be the wind inside my sails,
the anchor in the waves /
oh-oh, He is my song /
let the King of my heart
be the fire inside my veins /
the echo of my days /
oh-oh, He is my song”
king of my heart
book, reading, and coffee image jesus, Christ, and hope image
this song is so utterly beautiful. it's perfect for a mood booster, or to just listen to as you sit in worship and God's presence. i tend to listen to it when i'm reading my bible, or having a rough day.

broken vessels by hillsong worship

“all these pieces
broken and scattered /
in mercy gathered
mended and whole /
empty handed
but not forsaken /
i've been set free”
broken vessels
cross, grunge, and dark image bible, cover, and god image
another absolutely beautiful song. the chorus is a rendition of amazing grace, and it's just such a great song about healing and God's amazing mercies and love.

even if by mercyme

“i know You're able and I know You can
save through the fire with Your mighty hand /
but even if You don't,
my hope is You alone /
i know the sorrow, and i know the hurt
would all go away if You'd just say the word /
but even if You don't,
my hope is You alone”
even if
god image autumn, goals, and home image
being relatively new, i only recently heard this song for the first time. and honestly, i feel like i've been given a revelation. this song touches on the occasions where God's will is to leave mountains unmoved, and you still having trust in Him anyway. God never promised us a perfect life or perfect situations. this song is the perfect representation of that.

hello, my name is by matthew west

“hello, my name is child of the one true King /
i’ve been saved, i’ve been changed,
and i have been set free /
amazing grace is the song i sing /
hello, my name is child of the one true King”
hello, my name is
god, child, and jesus image jesus, god, and lord image
this one is just a happy, upbeat bop to sing along to. i love it because when i sing it it's like i'm declaring it over myself, and calling out the lies the devil tries to tell. and rejecting the titles he tries to call me, but rather what my Father calls me: child of the one true King.

thanks so much for reading!
