A few months ago, a friend from church asked for songs to brighten her mood. This is absolutely my wheelhouse.
I love music, but am most passionate about music as it is used in worship (which is fortunate since I’m married to a worship pastor) and music that redirects our hearts back to Jesus. I answered my friend and then told her, shortly after, that I wanted to share this very topic that she had inspired!
I fully believe in guarding my heart and fueling my mind with music that feeds my soul. Our souls are too precious for junk, so I try to keep it “clutter-free.” Maybe I am in the minority here, but I believe that if my purpose is to worship God (and it is, by the way…that IS the purpose of life), then my mind should be fixed on tunes that bring Him the glory and lead my soul to a deeper love for Him.
When I am listening to music that glorifies God, then I feel more able to serve and love others. I feel refreshed and my mood improves noticeably. There are several current (or semi-current) songs that pair the right tempo and tune with Biblical truths that motivate, challenge, and provoke meaningful conversations. In fact, this specific genre of music just might help you clean the house a bit more quickly…so I have heard!
Today, I am sharing twelve of my favorites. Every one of these songs meets two very important criteria: they are both 1) worshipful and 2) happy! Save this list for the next time you’re feeling defeated, depressed, or overwhelmed. I’m very confident that this playlist will turn your frown upside down! This is what works for me! I hope it has a positive impact on your life, as well!
May your hearts be filled with the happiest of songs and your homes abound with His praises!
From my heart to yours,
