I didn’t read all the other responses, so sorry if this repeats some!

I created a Pandora station based on Brandon Heath’s music, and it’s FAB. I love him, especially “Your Love,” “Jesus in Disguise,” “Stolen,” … okay all of his songs.

Other great ones:

A Better Way by downhere

Stronger by Mandisa

10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord) and You Never Let Go by Matt Redman

On The Third Day by Michael Olson

Things Like You by Sanctus Real

Fly and The Eleventh Hour by Jars of Clay

Awesome God by Michael W. Smith

Blue Skies by Point of Grace

And the one I heard for the first time a few weeks ago, and subsequently fell in love with: Beautiful Things by Gungor

@kris325:  Thank you for sharing your story, it truly is a testament to what God can do in us and through us if we just let him.

The good news is the best is yet to come for you, there is always more of God to receive and more that God can and will do through you. You are on an amazing journey and it will just keep getting better!

I don’t know if you are a reader but I want to recommend to you this book “Just Enough Light For The Step That I’m On” by Stormie Omartian. It talks about trusting God in tough times and how even though we can’t see the future, he can, and we just have to keep moving forward and trusting him.  It’s a really good book, I hope you get a chance to read it.

I relate to a lot of what you have and are dealing with, I recently came upon my own health related issues, but God knows and sees everything and he will take care of us, so even though we don’t know what our future holds we know who holds our future and that’s reassurance enough.

Blessings to you and take care!

i recently went to a wedding where they had the ‘audience’ sing this beautiful christian hymn. it was an outdoor wedding and the sound of everyone singing (FI and i didn’t sing along because we didn’t know the words…we aren’t christian) was just so gorgeous. it was seriously the prettiest song. i’ll find out what it was!!!

Most of these are already listed above, but I felt the need to second them:

 

Worn by Tenth Avenue North – such a beautiful and incredible song, I could never get tired of it

We Won’t Be Shaken by Building 429 – this song greatly helped me when my close friend was killed in a motorcycle accident last month

Bless the Lord (10,000 Reasons) by Matt Redman – we sing this song at my church occasionally and everyone always loves it

Overcome by Jeremy Camp

What Faith Can Do by Kutless

Beautiful Things by Gungor

I Need a Miracle by Third Day

Redeemed by Big Daddy Weave – the lead singer of this band performed at my church once, and his story behind this song is really inspiring

anything by Toby Mac – his songs are so fun too! Some of my favorites are Lose My Soul, City on Our Knees, Steal My Show, Hold Me, and especially Me Without You

Lift It by Thousand Foot Krutch

You’re Beautiful by MercyMe – I saw this song performed at a concert and it was very powerful

God With Us by MercyMe – same with this song

Today is the Day by Lincoln Brewster – he also happens to be the worship pastor at a church near where I live

Carry Me by Josh Wilson

By Your Side by Tenth Avenue North

What Life Would Be Like by Big Daddy Weave

Our God is Greater by Chris Tomlin

Lord I Need You Now by Matt Maher

Fall Apart by Josh Wilson

anything by Switchfoot

anything by Mat Kearney (especially Renaissance, Closer to Love, and Undeniable)

anything by Brandon Heath

 

I could probably think of a lot more, but these are some of my favorites. I’m like you–music is important to me and I have always used it to heal. A lot of these songs have really helped me through some hard times, and I hope they can do the same for you! God bless!

My Savior, My God & Let the People Praise by Aaron Shust

I’m thinking of the songs my church’s praise team performs, but I can’t find the original singers’ names. I only know the two above.

I was so touched by your testimony! Blessings to you!
