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.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
