To you, O’LORD, I will make music. ~ Psalm 101:1
Or I would if I could carry a tune or play an instrument. I have always loved music, all kinds of music. I just never was gifted in that way.
However, I can listen and that I do well. In fact, as I type this I have my radio on. Of course, if I am going to listen to music now, it must be the right kind — inspirational.
I was lucky though and found an amazing contemporary Christian station, KLOVE. Have you heard of it?
Over the past few months, I have heard great songs that inspired me in my life. I am going to tell you about my top 10.
Truly, it is just 10 songs I love. I could list a lot more and may later.
10. Never Been A Moment by Micah Tyler
We all go through tough times. Micah Tyler sings about how God is always with us and loves us every moment. It’s good to know in the best of times.
9. Forgiven by Sanctus Real
We all have a past. However, in this song Sanctus Real helps us remember that we are forgiven.
8. Love Broke Through by Toby Mac
Do you remember that time when you first accepted Christ’s love. Toby Mac sings about his moment when love broke through.
In another song that reminds us of HIS forgiveness. Tenth Avenue North tells us we have been remade. This is what the name TRUE METAMORPHOSIS means as I talk about on our home page.
6. Chain Breaker by Zack Williams
We all have chains — some from addictions and others from traumas in their lives. There is even a few that have both types — looks away quickly. In this song, Zack Williams reminds us that Jesus can break any chain we may have.
Hillary Scott sings about heartbreak in this song. It reminds us that even while struggling through the most difficult things we need to be willing to follow HIS lead. The hurt and sorrow is temporary but HIS LOVE is eternal.
This song by Lauren Daigle reminds us that it is our job to bring back those that have drifted from God’s path. As in Ezekiel, it is our job to prophesy to the dry bones so that they may come alive in Christ.
3. Good Good Father by Chris Tomlin
Do you ever feel unloved? In this song, Chris Tomlin praises our Heavenly Father who loves us all. HIS love is as perfect as HE is. Chris is right he is a Good Good Father.
This song by Sidewalk Prophets hits real close to home for me. In fact, I cried every time I heard it. It is sung from the viewpoint of someone struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts. The song asks is you would tell someone about God’s Grace to save their life. I am glad someone did for me.
1. Jesus by Chris Tomlin
Chris Tomlin brings us another praise song that speaks for itself “Jesus.” HE is so much to any that follow HIM, as I spoke of in How I Went From Suicidal to JOY.
Music has always been important to me. Now, it’s so much more because it is a way to praise God who is so worthy of our praise.
What’s your favorite inspirational song? I would love to know. Please feel free to comment.
