bro, it's like all i ever do is post playlists, but i just love recommending music!

i made this playlist recently because i felt like at times i just want to listen to some nice slow music to get me connected with God that isn't necessarily worship (the music genre, that is), but something more contemporary or just some feel good acoustic to sit in the front porch of my house. so, i made a playlist with songs that kinda set that mood, and in the way i discovered a few new songs that are also included. i'll just say, i'm proud of this one, so i really hope y'all enjoy it and are edified by it. God bless!

1. canyons // cory asbury

Canyons wide, oceans deep
Can't contain all Your love for me
No matter how high or far I reach
There's no end to Your love for me

2. he understands // chandler moore

Temporarily removed

He was a Man, Treated bad like me

When I am a long night
You are the sunrise
When I am a desert
You are the river that turns
To find me

4. known // tauren wells

aesthetic, feel, and hand image

I'm fully known and loved by You
You won't let go, no matter what I do

To be known, fully known, and loved by You
I'm fully known and loved by You

5. everything // lauren daigle

So I will trust You even when it hurts

Be the wanderer that's coming back
Leave the past right where it's at
Be more heart and less attack

Image by Jarbas Jacare

I have seen the lily dancing with the wind
Open to the sunshine
Open to the rain
Dressed in all her beauty
Given what she needs
If I listen closely
I can hear her sing to me

8. front porch // joy williams

ocean, summer, and beach image

If never you find what you're looking for
Come on back to the front porch
Say my name through the screen door
Come on back to the front porch
Whatever you've done it doesn't matter
'Cause darling we're all a little splintered and battered
But the light is on, what you waiting for?
Come on back, come on back to the front porch

9. tin roof // chris tomlin

beach, sunset, and sea image

Maybe the streets are gold
And there's a table with plenty room
Maybe we don't grow old
And we got nothing to lose
Maybe in the promised land
There's a choir when you walk through
Oh, but I pray heaven is like
Rain on a tin roof

10. dear God // cory asbury

beach and sunset image

'Cause I try and try
Just to fall back down again
And I ask myself why
Do I try to chase the wind?
I should lean into the mystery
Maybe hope is found in a melody
So I wanna try again
Oh, I'm gonna try again

11. quiet (stripped) // elevation rhythm

beach, summer, and ocean image

I'll just be quiet
And let You speak through the silence
Here I am, no more hiding
You are in this moment, I won't fight it
I'll be quiet

12. in every season // kate rosen

aesthetic, water, and sea image

In every season, Lord, You are faithful
In comfort or hardship Your promise is good
Through every trial I'll count it a blessing
Knowing You're with me and You'll work it for good

13. far kingdom (reimagined) // the gray havens

pink, aesthetic, and sky image

There's a river we will know
Ever clear and ever full
From the fount that overflows
In the light of the King
And when we drink it, we will find
That this joy, ever full, will ever rise
And it'll rise on, in the Kingdom
In the Kingdom

14. paradise // william matthews

Here every treasure will rest
In a house made of dust
There's a kingdom inside me
Now I have tasted and seen
And my heart has believed
You will lead me to glory

15. be alright // dante bowe

book, beach, and photography image

This is dedicated to the broken
The hurt and lonely and forgotten ones
This goes out to the weary
Let's keep dancing while the day is young

16. garden // jervis campbell

Temporarily removed

From the garden, to the shadows
Every heartbeat belongs to you
Like a sharpened arrow
Oh you guide me, you send me through
Though I started so shallow
Deeper, you call me down
When it's hardest to follow
I'll remember, to hold up the crown

17. eden // jervis campbell

beach, summer, and ocean image

You're the bones inside my body
You're the fire that fills my lungs
You're the reason I'm still standing
You're the strength to carry on
And I wanna know you like you it were Eden
Like it's only the two of us
Oh I wanna walk among your presence
I want to feel your fullеst love

18. lost in your love // brandon lake

summer, sea, and ocean image

I just want to be close to Your heart
This is where my healing finds it's start
Here is where I find my peace
Where my soul is finally free

19. enough for you // saint claire

beautiful, summer, and alternative image

We don't know, we don't know if I'll be home today
Came by way of yesterday
Lovers say you just need time
Beggars say that love is dying
If you can find a gentle soul to
Hold you close while the thunder rose
Steady health and steady job
Simple, quiet, is that enough for you?
Is that enough for you?

20. no one ever cared for me like Jesus // steffany gretzinger

summer, sunset, and ocean image

No one ever cared for me like Jesus
His faithful hand has held me all this way
And when I'm old and grey
And all my days are numbered on the earth
Let it be known in you alone
My joy was found
Oh my joy, my joy

21. gratitude // brandon lake

sea and view image

So I throw up my hands
And praise You again and again
'Cause all that I have is a hallelujah
And I know it's not much
But I've nothing else fit for a King
Except for a heart singing hallelujah

22. voice of God // dante bowe

beach, ocean, and nature image

I can hear it in the crackle of a bomb fire
And I can hear it in the middle of the ocean water
Oh, I just can't explain
But it makes me wanna cry
And I can hear when the rain falls on my windowsill
On a playground where children's laughter lives
Oh, I can't explain
But it makes me wanna cry

23. God is love // chris renzema

picnic, sea, and sky image

How great this love
Oh, it's moving all my mountains
It's perfect love
It's casting out my fear
How great this love
Oh, it welcomes me like family
And anywhere I go
It meets me there

24. lightning // pat barrett

aesthetic, sunset, and sea image

Silence from the ones who know better
Quiet is the riot of the oppressor
Devil's plan is we hate each other
Even better if we say nothing
Same day, new face
Old pain, rerun
Headline, heartbreak

25. heal my heart // ecclesia

Image by Jarbas Jacare

Look a little closer and you might find
Look a little deeper you might uncover
My shadow side and my wicked way
My selfish heart all my sinful days
You might not like what You're bout to see
