10 Songs to Cheer You Up When You’re Feeling Down

    Ladies, when I’m feeling down, I find that prayer and reading the Bible are very comforting. But there’s also another thing that puts the spring back into my step, and that’s listening to uplifting music!

    So for those of you who need a little cheering up, here are some of my favorites…and trust me, I had a really difficult time narrowing this list down to just 10, so I hope I can add to it at a later date. In the meantime, take a listen to these tunes and may God bless your day and cheer your heart!

    1. I love the Newsboys so much! 🙂 And Shake is really fun! But the songs I always go to when I’m feeling sad is “You’re Beautiful” by Mercy Me and “By your Side” by Tenth Avenue North 🙂 🙂

    2. I LOVE THESE SONGS!!!! Especially “Children of God”, “Tell the World”, “This is the Stuff”, and “Miracles”!!!! But two other great songs are “You are More” by Tenth Avenue North and “More Beautiful You” by Johnny Diaz!!

    3. I cry every time I listen to Tell the World. I mean, break down the lyrics, and what Christ did for you suddenly becomes so clear.
      can’t offer you nothin’, but your care & kindness keeps comin’
      And your love is so unconditional, I get butterflies in my stomach
      I got the old me in the rearview, now the new me got a clear view
      And I was so dead, I couldn’t hear you, too deep in sin to come near you
      But you drew me in, you cleaned me up, so take me home, beam me up
      Before you do, just let me tell the truth, and let these folks know that I done seen ya’ love
      And it’s everlasting, infinite, it goes on and on, you can’t measure it
      Can’t quench ya’ love, they can’t separate us from the love of God, there’s no estimate
      My face look the same, my frame ain’t rearranged, but I’m changed; I promise I ain’t the same
      Your love’s so deep you suffered and took pain, you died on the cross to give me a new name
      Ain’t nothing like I’ve seen before, I got a beaming glow
      I was low, down, and dirty, but you cleaned me, Lord
      You adopted me, you keep rocking me
      I’mma tell the world, and ain’t nobody stopping me!
