College is exciting, new, challenging and stressful. Some days, it's all those emotions and more all at once. I don't know about you, but music speaks volumes to me and it helps me feel very grounded when things feel hectic in my life.

As I've made it (almost) through the first semester of my college career, I wanted to share some of the songs that have helped me feel at peace when it all feels to be too stressful.

1. "Pursue/All I Need Is You" Hillsong Worship

"Now until forever
Jesus, I surrender
Show me what I don't know
More of You
I'm desperate for Your presence
Longing to be with You
Lead me to a new place
More of You"






"Open my eyes
Let me know more of Your love
More of Your love
Here I will wait
Just for a glimpse of You, God
I'll wait for You, God"




2. "Highs And Lows" Hillsong Worship

"Highs and lows
Lord You're with me either way it goes
Should I rise or should I fall
Even so
Lord Your mercy is an even flow
You're too good to let me go"




3. "Here Again" Elevation Worship

"Can't go back to the beginning
Can't control what tomorrow will bring
But I know here in the middle
Is the place where you promise to be

I'm not enough unless you come
Will you meet me here again
Cause all I want is all you are
Will you meet me here again

As I walk now through the valley
Let your love rise above every fear
Like the sun shaping the shadow
In my weakness your glory appears"












"Not for a minute
Was I forsaken
The Lord is in this place"

4. "Who You Say I Am" Hillsong Worship

"I am chosen, not forsaken
I am who You say I am
You are for me, not against me
I am who You say I am"


5. "Overflow" Red Rocks Worship

"I believe what You said
That You're not done with me
I know You always make a way
I know You've always stayed the same"


"Your promises remain
So I come to You, 'cause...
Lord, my cup is empty
Lord, my cup is empty
Fill me with Your Spirit
To overflow, to overflow"




6. "Let It Happen" United Pursuit

"You're full of life now
And full of passion
It's how he made you
Just let it happen.
And he calls each one of us
By our names to come away
And he whispers to your heart
To let it go and to be alive"






"So take me back
Back to the beginning
When I was young
Running through the fields with you"


7. "Seasons Change" United Pursuit

"Though the music changes, and the songs we sing
We still lift our praises to our loving God and King.
Though the seasons change
Your love remains"


8. "Lean Back" Bethel Music

"I will lean back in the loving arms

Of a beautiful Father.

Breathe deep and know that He is good.

He's a love like no other"


9. "Defender" UPPERROOM

"You go before I know
That You've even gone to win my war
You come back with the head of my enemy
You come back and You call it my victory"


"And all I did was praise
And all I did was worship
And all I did was bow down
And all I did was stay still"


"When I thought I lost me
You knew where I left me
You reintroduced me to Your love
And You picked up all my pieces
Put me back together
You are the defender of my heart"




10. "Extravagant" Bethel Music

"It's extravagant, it doesn't make sense
We'll never comprehend, the way You love us
It's unthinkable, only heaven knows
Just how far You'd go, to say You love us"


"Here is all my love
It's Yours, no conditions
When You pull me close
No, I won't resist it"


11. "Fierce" Jesus Culture

"Before I call

Before I ever cry

You answer me
From where the thunder hides
I can't outrun
This heart I'm tethered to
When every step
I collide with You Like a tidal wave
Crashing over me
Rushing in to meet me here
Your love is fierce"







12. "Hunger" David & Nicole Binion

"This world could never satisfy, the longing in my soul
When all is lost and hope is dry, when all I feel is cold
I'm coming back to Your presence"

"'Cause there's a hunger and a thirst
I am desperate, immerse me
I'm not waiting, not anymore
I need You, Lord, I need You, Lord"


13. "Cover The Earth" Kari Jobe & Cody Carnes

"Let the Spirit rise up, let it break through the walls
And beat down the doors, and crash through the windows
And cover the earth"

"Fear has no choice but to bow
Chains have no choice but to break
Shame has no choice but to leave
In Your presence"


14. "Relentless" Hillsong Worship

"You carry us, carry us

When the world gives way
You cover us, cover us
With Your endless grace

Your love is relentless"

15. "Anchor" Hillsong Worship

"I have this hope
As an anchor for my soul
Through every storm
I will hold to You
With endless love
All my fear is swept away
In everything
I will trust in You
There is hope in the promise of the cross
You gave everything to save the world You love
And this hope is an anchor for my soul
Our God will stand
Unshakeable"











"Your Name is higher
Your Name is greater
All my hope is in You
Your word unfailing
Your promise unshaken
All my hope is in You"




These songs have been on a constant loop for the past three months. I hope you can enjoy them and let the words wash over you and speak into your life, just like I have, especially if you are feeling overwhelmed.

    Imagine this: You're at your best friend's summer birthday blowout party. They hand you the aux cord. Suddenly, every song you've ever heard escapes your memory. With the help of this list, that scenario won't happen and you'll kick the party into gear, everyone will be calling you the "aux cord hero."

    1. "Magic In The Hamptons" - Social House (ft. Lil Yachty)

    This feel-good jam easily tops the list. This chill beat will hype up any get-together or car ride (with the windows down). It's hard not to blast it on full volume and sing along to Lil Boat's catchy rap verse.

    2. "Pineapple" - Ty Dolla $ign (ft. Gucci Mane & Quavo)

    This song gives us MAJOR beach vibes. Three of the biggest names in rap right now came together and blessed us with this sick beat. Nothing screams summer more than pineapples, this song has it all.

    3. "Champagne and Pools" - Hoodie Allen (ft. Blackbear & KYLE)

    Champagne and pools? Sounds like a summer dream to me. Need I say more?

    4. "Mixed Personalities" - YNW Melly (ft. Kanye West)

    This non-traditional summer lovin' song puts Danny and Sandy to shame. Kanye's catchy chorus mixed with Melly's verses makes this song perfect for any barbecue or pool day.

    5. "GRoCERiES" - Chance The Rapper (ft. TisaKorean)

    Chance the Rapper's newest release brings positivity and love like all of his other beats. Nothing screams summer like lemonade, and this jam reminds us to keep this summer simple while still having fun.

    6. "Make Believe" - Juice WRLD

    My personal favorite of his new album will be a staple by the end of the summer.

    7. "No Advice" - Skizzy Mars

    Skizzy Mars' newest release will be bumping through your speakers on repeat after the first time you hear it. Infectious beats and catchy lyrics are Skizzy's forte, causing this song to make our list. Everyone could take a little advice from this song about how to live their life this summer.

    8. "Truth Hurts" - Lizzo

    If you didn't think a girl power jam would make this list, you were wrong. Every girl can relate to this song in some way, and it'll have you bouncing in the club, in your seat, anywhere. This jam will pump you up this summer.

    9. "Shoota" - Playboi Carti (ft. Lil Uzi Vert)

    This song has been an insane pump up jam since it's release in 2018. It continues to bring the hype, so it should make a comeback on your playlist this summer.

    10. "TAlk tO Me (REMIX)" - Tory Lanez (ft. Lil Wayne, Rich The Kid & DJ Stevie J)

    Tory Lanez is one of my all time favorite artists of the year. This remix will be the perfect addition to your summer playlist.

    I mean, what are you doing? Don't just sit there. Open up Apple Music or Spotify and add these jams to your summer playlist!
