Diving Into My Worship Playlist

Hi everyone and happy Sunday! Wow, posting on a Sunday feels so weird.

Welcome to the first installment of FAITH. I want to gently ease into things so I thought for our first FAITH post, we could take a little visit to my worship playlist. Music is a language that everyone speaks, so I thought it would be a good start.

For me, my worship playlist is for any moment when I am feeling particularly grateful, stressed, or alone. It gives me a great deal of comfort no matter what situation I’m in. And lately, I’ve been playing it much more than any other playlist I have.

Let’s be honest for a minute- there are SO many songs about bitches, money, and drugs. And for the longest time, I didn’t think that my opinions or personality were being skewed because of those songs I was listening to. But recently I realized that a lot of who I am is based off of the music I listen to. I also realized that I let the music I listen to dictate my mood. So I started to change up my listening habits. Now, most mornings I listen to my worship playlist while I get ready for the day and I’ve seen a drastic change in my mood. I’m always feeling ready to take on the day, and a lot more positive about whatever thoughts I’m having.

A lot of my favorite songs on the playlist have lyrics that have spoken to me. They’re lyrics that have changed my outlook and gotten me to think about things a little deeper. It’s hard to explain, but it’s like they hit me in the chest when I hear them and I immediately feel a deeper connection to the song.

Some of my favorites are:

You will never stop fighting for me
When I can’t fight for myself
Every word is a promise you keep
‘Cause you love me like nobody els
e” Fighting For Me, Riley Clemmons

Before I spoke a word, You were singing over me
You have been so, so good to me
Before I took a breath, You breathed Your life in me
You have been so, so kind to me
Reckless Love, Cory Asbury

So when you’re on your knees and answers seem so far away
You’re not alone, stop holding on and just be held
Your world’s not falling apart, it’s falling into place
I’m on the throne, stop holding on and just be held
Just Be Held, Casting Crowns

An Introduction To FAITH

I always want to be transparent with everyone, and there has been something on my heart quite a bit recently. I’ve spent the last couple weeks working really hard on something that I think will be one of my favorite additions to this site!

For the last year, I have found myself diving back into my faith, which I had abandoned for most of my life. Don’t get me wrong- I’ve always had faith, but I haven’t practiced my faith much at all since I was a child. I’m not sure what exactly brought me back to a place of wanting to know God again, but whatever it was, it hit me like a truck.

I started watching videos, reading books, and referring to the Bible in times of confusion or worry. As it has become such a huge part of my life now, I thought I should let that reflect in my work.

I am extremely excited to start my next series- FAITH. Yeah, I spent the last two weeks coming up with that super creative name. Just kidding, but I had to acknowledge how basic it is. 

FAITH is made up of just about literally anything faith based- makes sense, right? That includes everything from bible studies to church notes and personal reflection. It’s my way of sharing my thoughts with you in a new and meaningful way.

I’m super excited to start this series and share this part of my life with you guys. I think this is something I was meant to do and although I feel a ton of pressure, this will be something I look forward to doing.

So stay tuned for new FAITH posts every other Sunday at noon, starting this Sunday!
