Music is a powerful thing. It can bring encouragement, comfort and joy. It can to take you back in time and catapult you into the future. It can break chains, lift you up, and pour out healing. It’s a powerful gift that God has given us, and it’s a gift for people of all ages.
Last night I was getting my kids ready for bed, and my 5-year-old son mentioned that he was struggling with bad dreams. There was a scary image haunting his mind, and he asked, “How do I get it out of my head, and make it go away?” Wow. The battle of the mind is a topic that I’ve spent many a day working on myself, and here he was, a kindergartener, seeking out tools to fight the battles he faces in the night. I searched and searched for some comforting worship tunes to put on that night, as I know in my own walk, Worship has been a powerful weapon for the darkness that has plagued my heart and mind. We talked through scripture and prayed, but sometimes your heart just needs a song.
This playlist is a go-to for those moments in our lives. Whether it’s a bad dream, anxiety, stress or just a weary and tired spirit that you’re dealing with. Sometimes Life can beat us up and weigh us down, but we hope that these songs can bring the rest and peace of Christ in the face of whatever you and your family are dealing with today.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
