How has your 2018 been? Mine has been pretty good. Yes, there have been sad bits, but on the whole, it has been a wonderful year full of wonderful experiences. Today, I want to share with you my favourite worship songs and Christian music from the past year (not all of it was released this year, this is a list of what I have enjoyed this year!).
All the people said Amen – Matt Maher
I think this was the very first song I added to my 2018 playlist at the beginning of this year! It’s such a fun, uplifting song and great fun to sing along to in the car.
Resurrection Day – Rend Collective
I love the whole of Rend Collective’s album, Good News. But this particular song has a special place in my heart as I spoke about this subject in my Sunrise Service talk on Easter Sunday (check out my blog about it here).
Reckless Love – Bethel
This has been such a popular song this year, and I definitely joined the huge numbers of people loving it. But this song was made even more special when we sung it at a friend’s wedding. This is a fantastic song to sing in a group of Christians celebrating love!
You restore my soul – New Wine Worship
I’m pretty sure I heard this song at New Wine in 2017, but when I searched the lyrics, I could never find it. So, I was SO excited that it was one of the main songs we sang in the evening celebrations this year and on their 2018 album too!
Weep with me – Rend Collective
Earlier this year, I got the opportunity to go to Rend Collective’s Tour and worship with them. They performed this wonderful song and it was so, so powerful! It’s a great reminder for us all to worship God even in the hard times.
Tremble – Mosaic
This song was recommended to me by a friend and I really like this. I’m not usually a fan of repetitive songs but I just don’t get bored of the lyrics in this song!
Somebody tell them – City Harbour
You know when you have Spotify on and it decides to leave your playlist and play your ‘suggested’ songs? And you’re in the car so can’t make it stop? That is how I first found this song. I wouldn’t call it a worship song really, but it’s a great Christian song so definitely worth a listen!
BONUS – as well as my favourite worship songs, I figured I’d also share my 3 favourite other songs too!
On my way – Phil Collins
This is the song from Brother Bear, and it’s also the song my husband sung as I walked into our wedding so it’ll always be one of my favourites!
Journey On – Elms District
I discovered this song when it was at the end of a Criminal Minds episode! It’s such a lovely song to listen to.
The Greatest Showman Soundtrack
Does anyone not love this soundtrack?
