Music is the soundtrack of our lives. I have playlists to work out, write, for vacation, and Christmas to name just a few. Maybe you’re on vacation week this week and if so I hope you’re relaxing. You may even be taking stock of the year behind and planning ahead. Even on vacation, what we put into our mind matters. Ending one year, beginning another or whenever we seek change, surrendering to God is one of the best choices to make. I want each day, each year to be about surrendering my life and following Him. So of course, I created a Surrender playlist of music! You can read the inspiration for it here as it reminds me to surrender.
These songs and lyrics remind me of God’s presence, speak hope and illuminate how total surrender is possible. Here are a few of my favorites and the lyrics that speak to me.
The God I Know by Love & the Outcome “I came alive when I let go.”
Trust in You by Lauren Daigle “No matter what I face you’re by my side.”
Sparrows by Jason Gray “If He can hold the world, He can hold this moment.”
We Won’t Be Shaken by Building 429 “We will trust in you, we will not be moved.”
Whom Shall I Fear by Chris Tomlin “The God of angel armies is always by my side.”
Hold Fast by Mercy Me “What I’ve learned in my life, one thing greater than my strife is His grasp, so hold fast.”
You Never Let Go by Matt Redman “If my God is with me whom then shall I fear?”
One Thing Remains by Passion featuring Kristian Stanfill “Your love never fails and never gives up and never runs out on me.”
It doesn’t matter where, when or how often we choose to surrender to Him. However and whenever our surrender happens, He brings us peace. Find His peace by surrendering. Whether it’s a small worry, a big fear or seeking direction for a new year, let these songs speak truth, peace, and comfort into your life.
