My Favorite: Worship Songs (at the moment)

FullSizeRender (5)As a worship leader, even when I am not leading weekly, I still search out new worship songs {and old ones that I can fall in love with again}. It’s funny how a certain song can seem to say exactly what is on your heart at the time. Worship songs for me are much more than the key, rhythm, or the style—the words are what pull me in. I love poetic worship songs that cry out to God and have a way of pulling us deeper into the presence of God. I have been listening to the same songs the majority of the time lately, so I thought I would share them.

  1. Ever Be by Bethel

This song. This is an incredible anthem that proclaims that God’s praise will ever and always be on our lips. This song played in my car at a moment where I didn’t really feel like praising God, and this song came in all its conviction and I just wept and worshipped. Even when things aren’t going our way, we should praise Him. And when things are wonderful, we should have His praise on our lips. Lord, let this song be more than words…let this be our hearts cry.

  1. On the Throne (Featuring Kari Jobe) by Desperation Band

I love Kari Jobe and Desperation Band—put them together and you can’t go wrong. These worship leaders know how to write songs that are full of truth and heartfelt proclamation to Christ. One thing I like about this song is that it’s urging us to praise even through the valleys because Christ is higher than the mountains that stand before us. The bridge of this songs is all about Christ and who He is {magnificent, sovereign over all}. Sometimes I think the best worship songs aren’t even talking about us and what Christ does for us but God himself and this bridge does just that.

  1. You Don’t Miss a Thing by Bethel

This is a song that I had heard before and then one day, the power of it just hit me! My favorite line in the whole song is, “in a crowd of ten thousand, you don’t miss a thing.” Wow. It’s easy to feel like we are alone. And it’s easy to feel like God doesn’t have time for us. But guess what? He hears you, He sees you, and He is always there. This song makes me think of the story in the Bible when the bleeding woman touches the hem of Jesus’ garment and He feels it. If you remember, Jesus was surrounded by a lot of people that day, yet He stopped and knew that this woman had touched him…even among probably multiple other touches. Just like that woman, God knows us. Even among all the world, God doesn’t miss anything in your life. If that doesn’t make you feel loved, I’m not sure what will.

  1. God with us by All Sons and Daughters

If you haven’t ever listened to ASAD, do yourself a favor and look them up. Their songs are full of honest truth and words that are easy to step into worship with. This song in particular is one of my favorites right now. There is so much I can say about this song, yet even as I listen to it now, I seem to be speechless. This is a song that makes me just want to fall to my knees and worship. I am so thankful that God is with us and this song is a way to thank God for that.

I promise you will love it, here is ASAD singing God with us.

  1. Nearness by bethel

This song was such a Godsend. Literally. I only found this song because I saw a lyric picture of it on Pinterest and loved the few words I saw and went to listen to this song. I am a very anxious person, and this song is an anthem for my heart. “and my heart will stay steadfast, I know that You are good.” Amen. This song reminds me to find God in the stillness and that He alone can keep my heart and life steady. I want to remain steadfast in His presence. I hope this song reminds you that Christ is always near and that He is always good.
