12 Worship Songs To Pull You Out Of Your Slump And Revive Your Faith

Because sometimes all you need is a little music therapy.


Have you ever just been stuck? You get up every day, put your best foot forward and try really hard but nothing seems to be going right. If it's not one thing it's another. I feel like it's safe to say we have all had a time or two like this in our lives, and if you haven't yet, well... be prepared because it will hit you when you least expect it, and it sucks to be quite honest. When life is hitting you left and right it's so easy to fall into a slump and be unmotivated and discouraged and you can start to lose your faith a little. Music is something that I have found helps tremendously with lifting spirits, getting out of that slump and reviving faith so here is a list of the top 12 songs, in no particular order, I turn to when I need a little pick-me-up.

1. 'The Breakup Song' - Francesca Battistelli

We are breaking up with fear ladies and gents! Fear is a liar and if you need to let fear go and tell it who's boss there is no better way to do it than screaming this song at the top of your lungs on the car ride to work.

Favorite lyric: "Fear you don't own me there ain't no room in this story and I ain't got time for you telling me what I'm not like you know me well guess what, I know who I am."

2. 'Who You Say I Am' - Hillsong Worship

When you're feeling lost and you just don't know which way to go or what to do or who to be, this song will speak truth into your life. This song will remind you who you are and whose you are.

Favorite lyric: "Free at last, He has ransomed me His grace runs deep. While I was a slave to sin Jesus died for me. Who the son sets free, oh is free indeed I'm a child of God yes I am."

3. 'You Say' - Lauren Daigle

When you're fighting the feeling of not being enough and you feel like you just don't measure up to everyone around you or the person you want to be, it can be so discouraging and draining. This song gently reminds you that these feelings are lies and thieves of joy and it reminds you of what God says about you and who you are.

Favorite lyric: "You say I am loved when I can't feel a thing. You say I am strong when I think I am weak. You say I am held when I am falling short. When I don't belong you say that I am Yours."

4. 'God Only Knows' - for KING & COUNTRY

For when you feel alone and like you're fighting your battles all by yourself. For when you're afraid or too ashamed to want to ask for help. For when you wake up every day and walk around with a fake smile and then go home and cry alone in your room and you just feel like nobody knows what you're going through and no one would understand if you told them. This song reminds you that God knows all things, and He sees you and He understands you and He loves you.

Favorite lyric: "God only knows what you've been through. God only knows what they say about you. God only knows that it's killing you. But there's a kind of love that God only knows."

5. 'You Love Me Anyway' - Sidewalk Prophets

Sometimes we let our sin swallow us whole and we can just feel like we are so unworthy of God's love or we might think we've messed up so bad this time and there's no way He still loves me. That's not true though, and this song is the perfect reminder.

Favorite lyric: "I am the thorn in Your crown, but You love me anyway. I am the sweat from Your brow, but You love me anyway. I am the nail in Your wrist, but You love me anyway. I am Judas' Kiss, but You love me anyway."

6. 'Even If' - MercyMe

When you're going through something just plain awful in your life, whether it's illness, divorce, death of a loved one, etc. and it seems like you're praying and praying and nothing is changing this song is a great reminder to not lose hope. God is faithful even in the waiting.

Favorite lyric: "I know You're able and I know You can save through the fire with Your mighty hand but even if You don't my hope is You alone. I know the sorrow and I know the hurt would all go away if You just say the word but even if You don't my hope is You alone."

7. 'Worn' - Tenth Avenue North

For when you feel worn. For when life is just so hard that it feels like just getting up and getting through the day is a losing battle. For when you're losing your will to fight. This song is a cry to the Lord to come and help and remind us that there is rest and redemption in the arms of the Father.

Favorite lyric: "Let me see redemption win, let me know the struggle ends, that You can mend a heart that's frail and torn. I wanna know a song can rise from the ashes of a broken life and all that's dead inside can be reborn cause I'm worn."

8. 'Give Me Faith' - Elevation Worship

Elevation Worship Youtube

When you're struggling to find the purpose behind whatever it is that's bringing you down. When you just want to know why. Why now? Why this? Why me? When your faith is wearing thin and you can't see the light anymore this song reminds us that God is shaping us through this tough time even if we feel so weak, He is strong and so is His love for us.

Favorite lyric: "All I am, I surrender. Give me faith to trust what You say that You're good and Your love is great. I'm broken inside I give You my life."

9. 'O Come To The Altar' - Elevation Worship

Elevation Worship Instagram

This is another great song to listen to when the weight of your sin, regrets, mistakes, fears, shame and all is so heavily sitting on your shoulders. It reminds you that all of your broken, messy life is welcome and you can come to the altar and lay it down. There is redemption.

Favorite lyric: "Are you hurting and broken within? Overwhelmed by the weight of your sin? Jesus is calling. Have you come to the end of yourself? Do you thirst for a drink from the well? Jesus is calling. O come to the altar the father's arms are open wide."

10. 'Do It Again' - Elevation Worship

Elevation Worship Instagram

This is a great song for when you need a reminder that the Lord will keep his promises to you and you need to declare his faithfulness to yourself so you can stand firm in your faith in him. Sometimes we need a little boost and that's okay, this song is perfect for that.

Favorite lyric: "Your promise still stands great is Your faithfulness, faithfulness. I'm still in Your hands this is my confidence. You've never failed me yet."

11. 'Chain Breaker' - Zach Williams

When you find yourself fighting the same fight over and over again, when you just feel stuck from whatever it is you're trying to be freed from this song reminds us that God is a chain breaker. He can give us the freedom we desire. We don't have to keep fighting day in and day out because the battle has already been won for us.

Favorite lyric: "If you've got pain, He's a pain taker. If you feel lost, He's a way maker. If you need freedom or saving He's a prison shaking savior. If you've got chains He's a chain breaker."

12. 'Unstoppable God' - Elevation Worship

Elevation Worship Youtube

When you feel like you are facing the impossible this song powerfully reminds us that all things are possible with God. Nothing is too hard for the Lord, ever.

Favorite lyric: "Faith commanded and the mountains moved. Fear is losing ground to our hope in You. Unstoppable God let Your glory go on and on. Impossible things in Your name they shall be done."

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.
