I burst into tears today…
I was cleaning my living room making ready for our Christmas tree when it dawned on me. The ornament, the one I had so lovingly bought last year most likely wouldn’t be put on our tree this Christmas season. The ornament made for a new family member, the one I so long to hang on the tree would probably sit in a bag for another year. So I just stood there and had myself a good cry. At times that’s all you can do, cry out to God. I kept going and my living room is now sparkling and ready for a tree.
I’m sharing this because I know that some days you just break down. Some nights you cry deep into the night. Sometimes the only thing you want to do is scream… and that is why I have decided to add a list of songs that get me through. I want to share this so hopefully the next time you are feeling down, you find encouragement in song and you can worship and praise God when you’re in tears.
So here goes:
- Just be held – by Casting Crowns
- Still – By Hilary Scott
- Thy Will – Hilary Scott
- Shoulders- by David Wesley
- Trust in You- by Lauren Daigle
- Eye of the Storm- By Ryan Stevenson
- Oceans (where feet may fail) -by David Wesley
- Fix my eyes- by David Wesley
- Chain breaker- by Zach Willams
- Holy Spirit- Francesca Battistelli
So what about you? When your days are rough what do you use to get you through? Any songs for me?
Let us sing praises to God in the good times, and the bad!
