Best Inspirational, Encouraging Songs to Understand Your Purpose, Worth, Uniqueness and to Boost Your Self-Esteem

Updated on February 3, 2019

You are loved, wanted, matter, important, valuable, wonderful, great contributor to society, gifted, have great potential, etc. The day you were born was the best day for the entire world. These are statements everyone should believe.

I have come across many different types of people who do not believe this, do not feel good about themselves, have self-hatred, self-rejection and do not have a healthy self-esteem.

This can be for various reasons. Maybe they choose to believe negative things about themselves as a result of negative words spoken over them by parents, relatives, people in general and had no one to believe in them. Or unfortunate circumstances sucked the life out of them.

There are also some whose parents marriage end in divorce or death and blame themselves for the breakup of their relationship, and take on the responsibility for their parents happiness and unhappiness. So they do not think good things about themselves.

These are also many people out there who were born out of wedlock, considered themselves illegitimate, see themselves as a mistake, question their birth and experience problems in understanding their purpose in life. This affects their life, relationships, attitudes, moods, etc They are their own worst enemy.

As a result of these experiences, I have compiled these songs to bring them out of their present thinking and for them to understand and embrace their worth, contributions to society, gifts, skills, and for them to know who they are.

If you know such folks who are hard or down on themselves a lot or anyone needing encouragement, please share these songs with them.

The first song comes from Contemporary Group, Ashes Remain. They sang Here for a Reason.

You're not forgotten, you're not alone
You think you're worthless, but you're worth it
And He calls you His own
Made in His image, you were made for more
You think there is no plan, that it's all by chance
But don't believe that anymore:

Every time that you wake up breathing
Every night when you close your eyes
Everyday that your heart keeps beating
There's purpose for your life
So don't give up
Don't lay down
Just hold on
Don't quit now
Every breath that you take has meaning
You are here for a reason

Contemporary Group MercyMe delivers an excellent song for those struggling with how they feel about themselves, worth and life. Listen to their song, 'Beautiful.' It is from their album The Generous Mr. Lovewell. Here are some lyrics of the song Beautiful.

Days will come when you don't have the strength
When all you hear is you're not worth anything
Wondering if you ever could be loved
And if they truly saw your heart, they'd see too much

You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are made for so much more than all of this
You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are treasured, you are sacred
You are His
You're beautiful

MercyMe Beautiful

Hawk Nelson is a Canadian Rock group from Ontario. Their songs are very encouraging and uplifting. Listen to this marvelous song, 'Made.' Here are some of the lyrics from this song.

You're beautiful, wonderful
You're perfectly made, perfectly made
You're meant to be what you see
You're not a mistake, not a mistake

Brighter than stars that shine
You light up the Maker's eyes
And you'd believe if you could see
The smile on His face
The moment you were made

Another Song by Hawk Nelson

Fearfully and Wonderfully made sung by Matt Redman, British singer song writer and author. Here are some of the lyrics of this amazing song.

So fearfully and wonderfully made,
How could they say there is no God?
Reminded every breath that I take,
Itґs by Your hand I have been formed
So what am I going to do with this life You gave me?
What could I do but live for Your praise

Your grand designs leave us amazed.
The wonders of the way weґve been made
Speak of Your power, tell of Your grace.
So what am I going to do with this life You gave me?
What could I do but live for Your praise?

Country Star Faith Hill expressed the journey of understanding our identity in her song, 'Who I am.'
