    Come to Jesus Chris Rice

    I heard it yesterday with the piano and want to look up the music to play it.
    Love reading the posts below with all of the songs…many I love listening to also.

    Thank you. Praying for peace (and calm) that transcends understanding that can only come from the Lord.

    I think While I’m waiting by John Waller is a great song to listen when feeling anxious or even overwhelmed . The lyrics are beautifully written and are true for me while I’m waiting I will serve you . I will not fade .

    I like to listen to Kari Jobe sing “Be Still” live. When my heart feels unsteady and I listen to that song, I feel that God is talking to me…it’s a beautiful feeling!

    “Benediction” by The City Harmonic is fantastic! (Most of their work it, actually 🙂 One of my favorites.)

    Ahhhh! Andrew Peterson is one of my favorite christian artists. I rarely hear about him from other people so I am really happy he was included on this list.
