15 Staples For Your Christian Worship Playlist

15 Staples For Your Christian Worship Playlist

15 of my absolute favorites.


I know I'm constantly looking for new tunes for my worship playlist, so I wanted to compile a list of 15 of my favorites! Some of these songs are super popular, and others aren't very well known at all, which makes them all the more special to me. I wrote my favorite verse for all of them to give you an idea of the idea behind each song, give them all a listen they're quite incredible!

1. "All I Want" by Red Rocks Worship.

"My desire is more of You in my life. Nothing satisfies like You God. Flood my eyes till all I see is Your light. Hear my only cry. Oh, You are is all I want."

2. "Thy Will" by Hillary Scott.

"I know you're good, but this don't feel good right now. And I know you think of things I could never think about. It's hard to count it all joy, distracted by the noise, just trying to make sense of all your promises. Sometimes I gotta stop remember that you're God and I am not, so Thy will aren't."

3. "In Awe" by Hollyn.

"I'm livin' in awe 'cause You don't need me at all but You couldn't love me more. I'm livin' in awe, and every day I fall but You never let me go."

4. "The War Is Over" by Bethel Music.

"This is my battle cry I'm found in Jesus Christ. This is my battle cry I'm won by Jesus Christ. He hears my battle cry He gave me back my life. He hears my battle cry I give Him back my life."

"He has made a way for us, born for glory out of dust. Children held within the arms of peace. He has made a way for all, mercy waits where sinners fall. He is our victory, He is our victory!"

5. "Psalm 42" by Tori Kelly.

"As the deer pants for the water so my soul, need You Lord. When thirsty God, You're the living water and my soul, need You Lord. I need You Lord."

6. "Adoration" by UPPERROOM.

"Every knee will bow and every tongue confess that my Jesus is, He's the Lord of all. Jesus, You are worthy for the glory and honor and praise."

7. "There Is a Cloud" by Elevation Worship.

"Every seed, buried in sorrow you will call, forth in its time. You are Lord, Lord of the harvest calling our hope, now to arise. We receive Your rain."

8. "You're The Only One" by Chris Renzema.

"Though the earth may try, to satisfy my heart. Though the earth may try, to tell me you're not faithful. Though the earth may try, to blind me from your goodness You shine through. You're the only one who fills me up."

9. "Faithful" by Elevation Worship.

"I was down to the wire hoping You would come through. And You stepped in the fire like You always do. How I'm convinced of Your love, You are more than enough. You are faithful. Why should my heart be afraid?"

10. "Defender" by Rita Springer.

"When I thought I lost me, You knew where I left me. You reintroduced me to your love. You picked up all my pieces, put me back together. You are the defender of my heart. Hallelujah, you have saved me, so much better this way. Hallelujah, great Defender so much better your way."

11. "Fullness" by Elevation Worship.

"Tongues of fire testifying of the Son. One desire, Spirit come, Spirit come. Speak revival, prophesy like it is done. One desire, Spirit come, Spirit come."

12. "Out Of Hiding" by Steffany Gretzinger.

"And now I'll be your lighthouse when you're lost at sea. And I will illuminate everything. No need to be frightened by intimacy. No, just throw off your fear and come running to Me."

13. "Do It Again" by Elevation Worship.

"I've seen You move, come move the mountains and I believe, I'll see You do it again. You made a way, where there was no way, and I believe, I'll see You do it again."

14. "Forever" by Kari Jobe.

"The ground began to shake. The stone was rolled away. His perfect love could not be overcome. Now death where is your sting? Our resurrected King has rendered you defeated!!!! Forever He is glorified."

15. "New Wine" by Hillsong Worship.

"Make me Your vessel. Make me an offering. Make me whatever You want me to be. I came here with nothing but all You have given me. Jesus, bring new wine out of me."

As you can see, I have a lot of Elevation, they may or may not be my favorite ; ) I definitely recommend checking out the full albums with all of these songs too. Praises on praises for gifted artists to bring us these sweet sounds to worship our King!

'Jane The Virgin' Season Five Made Me Hate Jane

Season five has ruined Jane Gloriana Villanueva.


SPOILER WARNING: This article contains spoilers for "Jane the Virgin"

Now, for all the super fans left, let me preface this article by saying that I love "Jane the Virgin." The show itself has brought a large piece of Latinx culture to an American audience in a way that is both educational and thrilling. Somehow, the writers of this modern Telenovela managed to find the balance between "soap opera" drama and modern TV drama.

However, while the show itself remains captivating, its main character has lost her luster. In other seasons, Jane proved to be an honest, selfless young woman. One of the prime examples of this is when she tells Michael she is pregnant instead of just accepting his proposal and dealing with the consequences later.

In seasons one through four, Jane was, as expected, caught up in the drama, but she always tried to put others before herself. She was fiercely protective of her mother and abuela as well as her son, Mateo. She was eager to help a struggling Petra, though Petra was nothing but rude to her.

Season five Jane is a different story.

This Jane perpetuates the idea that it is OK to play with someone's feelings, that she is right in dangling a relationship over both Raphael and Michael's heads. She claims that she doesn't know what she feels, that she has feelings for both Raphael and Michael. That she can't just run from her feelings for Michael.

She preaches that "love" is only an emotion. That it is ONLY felt. That because she "feels" something still there with Michael, she must still love him.

Sorry to break it to you Jane, but love isn't just a feeling. Love is a choice. It's a struggle. It's a fight you'll never stop fighting. It's a race you'll never get tired of running or when you do, you'll take a long drink of water and keep going.

Quite frankly, the way in which Jane treats her relationship with both men is emotional abuse. It is not only affecting the adults, but also the children as Mateo begins acting out and Ana and Ellie are convinced Raphael is taking drugs. While toying with the hearts of two men she cares about, she is also placing a wedge between herself and her son.

It seems stupid to be so opinionated about a silly TV show like "Jane the Virgin," but I know what it's like to be the second choice, then the first choice, then second again. Always wondering if you'll be good enough the next time, what you could have done better, how you could be different. Jane's actions in the final season only perpetuate the idea that it's OK to play with someone's emotions and that love is only a feeling. If you don't feel it, you don't have it.

Disclaimer: I am totally Team Raphael (if that wasn't obvious enough in this article), but here's why: Jane and Michael's relationship was based on "feeling." It "felt" magical. Raphael and Jane were not "love at first sight' but grew to love and accept one another. To me, this is the beautiful story. This is the real story of love.

6 Ways I Was Able To Achieve Straight A's At The University Of Georgia This Semester

It honestly took me entirely too long to figure out how to do well in my classes.


It is super common for students to come to the University of Georgia and have a horrible first year academically, because of the rigor and new stresses. High school doesn't prepare you for it, and it can often times make you feel really crappy about yourself. It is common for straight A students to come to UGA and start making C's. The reasons vary from studying habits to a new environment, but either way, it is the worst feeling in the world to be top of your class, and get to college and start falling behind. I haven't really made bad grades in college, but I came to UGA with a 4.2 GPA and I can assure you that was NOT the case after my first semester.

1. I stopped relying solely on my memory and used my resources.

I have always been the type of person to have a planner, but it even takes a lot to remember to look at the planner. Therefore, it was time to take things to the next level. I reminded myself of deadlines, events, and assignments in various ways to make sure I didn't slip up. This included google calendar, putting up a whiteboard in my room, notecards with important dates, etc. I have major anxiety about forgetting things, so to solve that, I just literally wrote them everywhere I possibly could.

2. I figured out why I was in college and what my purpose was.

It's hard to do something every day that you aren't even sure about. When I started to make lower grades, it was easy for me to think I was at the wrong place or doing the wrong thing. I had to really make confirm that college was for me and what I really wanted for myself. I did this by studying abroad and getting to know some of my professors. I learned that I really loved to learn and wanted to continue living in a scholarly world. All and all, I figured out that I really belonged here and I could do it.

3. I changed my major.

It was super hard for me to do this because I am the type of person that creates a plan and sticks to it. Changing my major meant that the plan was changing too, and that was one of the hardest decisions I've made. But once I changed my major to something that better fit me and what I wanted to do in the future (changed it from Risk Management and Insurance to Consumer Journalism), I was more confident and eager to make better grades.

4. I realized that everyone is in the same boat.

UGA admissions state that in 2018, the high school core GPA Overall Average of All Admitted First-Year Students was a 4.07. That means just about everyone coming in pretty much got all A's, dual enrolled, and/or took AP classes. But I can assure you, there aren't many people who continue to get those kinds of grades. And that's okay. College is much harder and it takes time to adjust. I had to realize I wasn't the only one.

5. I put school before EVERYTHING.

I missed events for my clubs, time with my friends, and I honestly probably watched Netflix a total of 10 times maximum. I decided if I was going to be in college, then it would be my first and only priority. It's easy to say that, but it's hard to miss fun things when this is supposed to be the "best four years of your life." But you kind of just have to come to terms with the fact that there will always be more chances to do those things, but if you make a bad grade it isn't necessarily going to go away.

6. When I could, I started saying YES.

It was easy for me to constantly feel like I had no time to do any more clubs or activities, but it was possible with balance and strategic planning. The more things I was involved in like UGA HEROs, Young Democrats, or even Odyssey Online, the more excited I was about what I was doing with my life. I even became a notetaker for two of my classes so I was forced to take good notes and go to class. I also studied abroad when I felt like I had absolutely no time and it turned out to be an experience that I will never forget. I said yes to things I was genuinely passionate about and things that would help me further develop skills for my future career(s).

Ultimately, to make the grades I wanted, I had to reevaluate everything I was doing and put the work in. It is all about your mindset and how far you are willing to push yourself. It's about things like being willing to do the extra credit, going to the office hours, staying in when everyone else is going out, giving yourself adequate time to study, and being surrounded by people who have similar goals. I also REALLY wanted my Zell Miller Scholarship back and I made it a goal to get there. Set goals and make them happen. If you are wanting to get better grades, my advice would be to emirs yourself completely into school. It doesn't sound super fun or cool, but it is only a few years and the return will be totally worth it. If you are studying something that you are passionate about, it shouldn't be hard to direct that energy into your schoolwork.
