For the Soul

Songs that Soothe the Soul

The past two weeks have been quite difficult for me, with days when I felt overwhelmed,….and me just being plain discouraged. Yet the Lord constantly encouraged me with verses after verses to place my trust in Him, to have joy in the Lord and be thankful for the wonderful answers to prayer He gave to each problem that I had, each obstacle that faced me.

During times like these, songs and hymns are like a soothing balm to my soul… they really raise my spirits up and keep me focused on the heavenly aspects. Have you ever had songs that seemed to just speak to your heart as if Jesus was right there comforting you? Well, here are a few of the songs that I’ve been recently listening to.

I’m sure you will find them just as uplifting as I did, and a reminder to Praise the Lord every day!

What songs do you listen to when you need encouragement?

  1. Hi Becky.
    Thanks for this post. I love the second hymn, I had never heard it before and I love learning new hymns, they can be sometimes hard to find. I love the instrumentation in it too.
    I agree with you, Hymns can give real comfort when needed. The hymn writers have blessed so many through their work. I often find myself repeating them to myself at random times during the day.
    This is one of my favorite Hymns, I can’t find it on you tube so here it is.

    Lord when I think upon the love
    Which Thou to me hast shown,
    To die upon the cross that Thou
    Mayest claim me for Thine own.
    I cannot tell why Thou didst show
    Such love to one like me,
    Save that it is that I might know
    I owe it all to Thee.

    There is no goodness in myself
    to win such precious love;
    I loves thee not – Thou lovedst me,
    and called me from above:
    I heard Thy voice, it won my heart,
    and bade my doubtings flee;
    It gave me rest and peace – O yes
    I owe it all to Thee.

    And still upheld by power divine,
    I urge my way along,
    In haste to reach the promised rest,
    The bright glad home of song,
    And then when glory on me bursts,
    And I thy glory see,
    Again I’ll raise the happy song,
    “I owe it all to Thee”.

    Here are some of my other favorites: (The Lilly of the Valley) (Nearer My God to Thee – this one is amazing!!) (In Christ Alone) (Master Speak! Thy servant heareth)

    Psalm 100
    1 Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.
    2 Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
    3 Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
    4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
    5 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
