Faith Based Support Groups - Music That Keeps You Going

View Full Version : Music That Keeps You Going

Does anyone have a certain song or songs that inspire/motivate/keep you focused? My daughter and I made a CD that we labeled "Positive Energy" with songs that keep us strong in our Faith and make us wanna dance. We listen to it almost every day. :)

I'll name a couple of our favorites and maybe the other awesome people here can share some of theirs.

Trading My Sorrows - Darrell Evans
Voice of Truth - Casting Crowns
And almost anything by Angels and Airwaves

I absolutely love Christian music and could probably write you a list of about a hundered songs, but I'll contain myself. :D
- I love just about anything by Third day. Come On Back To Me is my all time favorite, but I find all of their music very inspirational.
- Made to Love by Toby Mac. Just about anything by Toby Mac will make you want to dance!
- I Will Not Be Moved by Natalie Grant.
- My Deliverer by Mandisa
- The Lost Get Found by Britt Nicole
- Forgiven by Sanctus Real
- I'm Letting Go by Francesca Battistelli
- Your Grace Is Enough - Matt Maher
- Song of Hope - Robby Seay Band
- Salvation Is Here - Llincoln Brewster

Hope you find something here that you like. By the way, if you don't have any Christian contemporary music stations in your area, did you know that you can listen to many of them live via your computer? 104.7 and 93.3 out of Atlanta are wonderful stations. Direct TV also has a wonderful station, Spirit which is on...826 I believe.

I could not remember the name of a song or the artist last week...of a song I first heard a little over a year ago...your post reminded me!

I just love this song by Lincoln Brewster ~ Today Is The Day

03-23-2010, 12:13 AM
Third Day ~ These Thousand Hills; Angnus Dei (Allelujah, oh our Lord God Almighty, You are Holy); Saved; and well, anything they do really ...

Darlene Zschech ~ All things are possible; Free to Dance (again) ...

Hillsongs Australia ~ My Redeemer Lives; This is how we overcome ...

I also like Chris Tomlin, Vineyard, Casting Crowns, Bryan Duncan, Jars of Clay, Passion, Micheal W. Smith, Rebecca St. James ... to name just a few but I like the easy listening songs too.

Some of these songs and artists we already enjoy, but there were some that weren't familiar to me. I'll be checking out new tunes this afternoon.

Our contemporary Christian station here is really good: 89.3 KSBJ. I just don't listen to it as much as I should!

Ooh, thought of a couple more...
Shackles by Mary Mary
Dive by Steven Curtis Chapman

I have many favorites , I think my all time favorite is "Holy,Holy,Holy" (early in the moning our song shall rise to thee)
Other favorites are "We Shall Behlold Him" written by Dottie Rambo
And I love "Standing On Holy Ground' ( We are standing on Holy Ground and I know there are angels all around, let us praise Jesus now, we are standing in his presence on Holy Ground.)
Just a few examples I have more.

:D BUMP ~ thought that this thread should be bumped up so more people could share their favorite music ... :D

We now have a Christian station here that runs out of a local church; and it is so nice to have that choice available to us these days ... :)

08-23-2010, 04:41 PM
I'm so glad you bumped this thread! I've made a list from all ya'lls comments of songs to check out.

I have one to add.

These Are The Words I Would Say - Sidewalk Prophets

"Be strong in the Lord, never give up hope, you're gonna do great things, I already know, God's got His hand on you, so don't live life in fear, forgive and forget, but don't forget why you're here, take your time and pray, these are the words I would say."

Just saw this thread, it's hard to narrow it down! I do have some upbeat favorites that I listen to while I walk...

Natalie Grant (I will not be moved)
Nichole Nordemon (Brave...and just about everything else she does!)
Steve Curtis Chapman (I do believe)
Addison Road (Sticking with you)
Barlow Girl (No one like you)

Particularly love the female artists above b/c they're in my range and I can sing along...hard to do when you're trying to run, but helps pass the time! ;) Blessings!
