    5 Amazing Songs That Help Me Clear Up Moments of Doubt

    PI ladies, we all have moments of doubt. Sometimes we doubt ourselves, sometimes we doubt our abilities and sometimes we doubt God’s love for us.

    When we doubt, we’re usually questioning what is good, so the sooner we get out of the rut, the better.

    Besides prayer, I find that music is a great way of lifting myself out of the pit of sadness or doubt. I wanted to share some special songs with you. They are inspiring and motivating, and most of all, they carry me whenever I lose my way.

    When I feel tiny in this world, or lost completely, I turn to a song by Casting Crowns called “Who Am I.” This song reminds me that He who is the Alpha and the Omega, He who is the Almighty, He who is the Omnipotent, loves little me. And He loves you, too. And it’s a love that we could never fathom.

    Who am I, that the Lord of all the earth, Would care to know my name, Would care to feel my hurt?…Not because of who I am, But because of what You’ve done, Not because of what I’ve done, But because of who You are… And You told me who I am, I am Yours.

    In times of frustration, when my wants exceed my needs, the following song brings me back to what’s important in life. Often we get lost in all those materialistic desires, when our focus should never leave Christ. Lecrae reminds me of this with his song, “Don’t Waste Your Life.”

    If you making money hope you doing it right because the money is God’s you better steward it right, Stay focused if you ain’t got no ride, Your life ain’t wrapped up in what you drive, The clothes you wear the job you work, The color your skin naw we Christian first.

    Do you ever find yourself just wishing a day or an event were over? It doesn’t have to be a bad time, just a moment that interferes with your regular schedule, or a stressful event you’ve had anxieties about. Regretfully, I’ve felt that way about birthday parties, and sometimes my day has been so stressed that I couldn’t wait until the kids’ bedtime. But life’s so short! Kenny Chesney’s song “Don’t Blink” is a huge eye-opener for me.

    Best start putting first things first, ‘Cause when your hourglass runs out of sand, You can’t flip it over and start again, Take every breathe God gives you for what it’s worth, Don’t blink, ’cause just like that you’re six years old, And you take a nap, And you wake up and you’re 25, And your high school sweetheart becomes your wife.

    I have a desire to do something amazing with my life. I believe that many of us do. But sometimes it just seems like too much work, and it’s easier to just go through the motions. But allowing life to lead you through the ordinary, rather than directing your life through the extraordinary, is a waste. The next song, “The Motions” by Matthew West, drives me to do more with the life that God gave me.

    This might hurt, It’s not safe, But I know that I’ve gotta make a change, I don’t care, If I break, At least I’ll be feeling something, ‘Cause just ok, is not enough, Help me fight through the nothingness of life, I don’t wanna go through the motions, I don’t wanna go one more day, Without Your all-consuming passion inside of me, I don’t wanna spend my whole life asking, What if I had given everything? Instead of going through the motions.

    We all feel discouraged. And sometimes when life beats us down, it seems like too much of a weary process to get back up and keep pushing on. But we have to. Because life will continue to challenge us, so we might as well learn how to overcome those obstacles. “Stand” by Rascal Flatts is a great song for this.

    You feel like a candle in a hurricane, Just like a picture with a broken frame, Alone and helpless, like you’ve lost your fight, But you’ll be alright, you’ll be alright…On your knees you look up, Decide you’ve had enough, You get mad, you get strong, Wipe your hands, shake it off, Then you stand.

    PI ladies, I hope you liked my song selections–it was a pleasure to share them with you. Which is your favorite? Do you have a particular song that helps you clear up moments of doubt?
