5 Secular Songs That Could Easily Be Worship Songs

Pop songs, country songs, alternative songs, indie songs, or whatever genre you can think of all have songs that could easily have a double meaning. Just because music is not labeled in the Christian category doesn't mean it can't reference spiritual awakening or a call to Jesus in a time of struggle.

Here are six songs that you could easily fit into a night of worship.

1. "Wake Me Up" by Avicii

The first few lyrics say it all for this song.

"Guided by a beating heart, I can't tell where the journey will end, But I know where to start."

Although the song's intended meaning revolved around life being a journey and how it's okay to be a dreamer, these lyrics can also reflect how someone can't do this 'journey' alone.

2. "Feel Again" by One Republic

Right off the bat, OneRepublic lays down that with a certain someone, they feel a revival inside them. Sounds a little familiar, huh?

"I've been everywhere and back trying to replace, everything that I've had till my feet went numb, praying like a fool that's been on the run."

Even though this song's intended meaning is about a good relationship after several bad ones, you can also imply that after time and time again of filling your heart with things besides God, the relief of finally letting Him in is revolutionary.

3. "In The Name Of Love" by Martin Garrix & Bebe Rexha

"If I warned you that the fire's gonna burn, Would you walk in? Would you let me do it first?"

As Christians, we've been reminded time and time again that Jesus has already won the battle for us and our sins have already been paid for. We can see the same theme in this hit song.

This song also has a cover done by Kari Jobe, a Christian singer, who sang an acoustic version for Spotify Studios.

4. "I Walk The Line" by Johnny Cash

Although this classic was written about his wife, June Carter, Cash's lyrics can also mirror someone's faith keeping them aline. He sings about the love he has for his wife who keeps him steady, much like we sing about a savior who can tame our hearts.

5. "Fix You" by Coldplay

"Lights will guide you home, and ignite your bones, and I will try to fix you."

Coldplay hit us with another heart-wrenching anthem and reminded us that we all want some sort of fixing.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
