Songs that Pull My Thoughts to God

Music can do such wonderful things for your soul. It can soothe the anxious heart. It can motivate one to get moving. It can turn our thoughts toward God in worship.

Some of my favorites:

Your Name by Paul Baloche
Everlasting God by Brenton Brown
Hosanna by Paul Baloche
Mighty to Save by Laura Story
We Need Jesus by Kim Dexter
We Fall Down by Chris Tomlin

  1. Love your post! Chris Tomlin definitely has some powerful songs. So I think my songs would be “Awakening” by him, and “Our God” by him also. Got a chance to see him in concert in NC a few months ago, needless to say it was amazing! =)

  2. We’ve been listening to the Psalms in our car. Jamie Soles has two woderful Psalms albums, Pure Words (1-15) and Ascending (120-134). We’ve also been memorizing Psalm 103 and 19 using a We Sing the Word CD and it’s in our car, too. I think listening to God’s Word as we drive to and from our many activities has made a difference in our attitude. And my 2 year old can sing about half of Psalm 19!

  5. I love all the songs you mentioned. I would add these!

    Revelation Song (Philips Craig and Dean)
    Here in Your Presence (Hillsong)
    Our God (Chris Tomlin)
    Jesus Messiah (Chris Tomlin)

  6. During the worst of times overseas, when we felt like nothing was ever going to be right again, when we felt lost and alone, we listened to this “Blessed Be Your Name” sung by the Newsboys. Life moved on, God comforted us and taught us many lessons and brought us to where we are now. However, on Thursday I found myself at the same place – feeling broken, scared, and alone. I spent time in Scripture, crying out to God, and then I thought about that song. I listened to it and sang along through my tears and God reminded me that no matter where I am, He is there and I need to remember to thank Him despite my circumstances. Great reminder!!

  7. God and Man at Table Are Sat Down – the one I have is sung by Travis Cottrell
    Immanuel – Michael Card
    Jubilee – Michael Card
    Shackles – Mary Mary
    Blessed Be the Lord God almighty
    I Pledge Allegiance to the Lamb – Ray Boltz (who needs our prayers)
    Hallelujah, Salvation and Glory

    I recently got a new phone and just last night I got an audio Bible l0oaded to it.

    At Your Feet by Casting Crowns

    God Be Praised

  10. The one I’ve been singing to myself a lot lately is the newest release by Casting Crowns…..Glorious Day.

    “Living He loved me, Dying He saved me, buried He carried my sins far away. Dying He justified, freely forever. One day He’s coming Oh Glorious day…Glorious Day!”

    More – Matthew West
    I Celebrate the Day – Reliant K

  13. Hallelujah by Heather Williams
    – hands down my favorite of all time!!

  14. We have similar taste in music, Jessica. For me just about anything by Watermark/Christy Nockels especially Holy Roar, Captivate Us , My Covering and You Come as You Are. I cannot help but sing along in praise and adoration.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
