4 Songs that Got Me Through Tough Times
Just recently I posted an article about the bible verses that got me through tough times. You can read about it here: https://hubpages.com/religion-philosophy/these-bible-verses-got-me-through-tough-times
I love music. I play sad songs to have something to cry to and to know that I'm not the only one that is going through a particular situation. I play my favorite rap songs from J. Cole or Kanye West to get hyped to. I play some Frank Sinatra or the Beatles when I'm in a happy mood.
The same goes for when I feel lost, lack of inspiration, and far from His presence. When that happens, I listen to these songs and they give me a sense of peace, confidence (in both myself and in God's divine plans for my life), and direction.
Peace by Hillsong
There's a peace far beyond all understanding
May it ever set my heart at ease
Dare anxiety come, I'll remember that peace is a promise You keep
Peace is a promise You keep
In God's presence, we feel this serenity and peace that we cannot explain. His power is transcendental, which means it's divine. It surpasses all rationality and logic. That's what I feel when I listen to this. I feel at ease knowing that God is for me. God promised us peace. Despite having troubles and difficulty in our lives, He promises that everything will be all right.

New Wine by Hillsong
In the crushing
In the pressing
You are making
In the soil, I
You are breaking
So I yield to You and to Your careful hand
When I trust You I don't need to understand
Just like in the song Peace by the same artist, this song teaches us to trust God. God's got us even if we cannot see the bigger picture just yet. God's got us even if we do not understand what is going on. We just need to have faith that in the crushing, in the pressing, He is making us new. In all these adversities, He is shaping us into becoming stronger, wiser, kinder.

Blessings by Chance the Rapper ft Jamila Woods
I'm gon' praise Him, praise Him 'til I'm gone
When the praises go up, the blessings come down
It seems like blessings keep falling in my lap
Okay, I love Chance the Rapper. The beat of this song makes me feel good. It's not like the other worship songs that are too sacred or too church-y (I just don't know how to explain it LOL). This song reminds me that when we praise God, when we trust His words, God keeps His promises as well. So, are you ready for your blessings? Are you ready for your miracles? If so, God will pour out His grace unto you.

Blessings by Laura Story
'Cause what if your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know you're near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise
Ahh! I remember the first time I heard this song. I went to a catholic school my whole life and my class just came back to the city after our immersion and retreat. For the past few days we immersed ourselves into the lives of the people in a far flung area and reflected on our lives. There was a lot of crying. Upon hearing this song at the last activity of our retreat, we were already back at our school with our parents beside us, we all cried.
This song just gives you those feels that it does not matter if you have hit rock bottom. When I hear this I am reminded that these hardships are not here to bring me down. They are here to catapult me, just like a rock in a slingshot. Everything happens for a reason. It depends on how we look at trials because we all have them. Life is fair because it's unfair to everyone. What makes us all different is how we view our tribulations.
I hope these songs ease your troubles as they have mine. Life is hard, but we shall rise above it. God is our safety net for as long as we allow Him to be, as long as we open up to the fact that He alone can save us.
Love and light, lovelies. Love and light. I hope you have a great day.
