Music That Changes my Mood – Part Nine

I was asked yesterday to add some different music to my series ” Music that Changes my Mood.” I have featured songs that are mostly rock and pop (leaning heavy at times on K-pop.) Like I said in my first ever post my music is vast and its any genre. I do listen to Gospel music. I grew up on Christian Gospel music.

When I was asked to add some uplifting Christian Gospel music I thought, I really like that idea. Music is pretty amazing in every genre. At different times in my life my music taste changes. But I will always remember my favorites no matter the genre. So here is blend of Christian music from my childhood to now. Enjoy.

You can find the complete series here. 

I also wrote a new feature article here.

This post came at a fortuitous time since the subject matter fits the article.

Music That Changes my Mood – Christian Gospel Part One

Point of Grace – Keep the Candle Burning

This song brings me back to my childhood and riding in the car as the kid after church with my mom. It’s an amazing song and there are many songs from Point of Grace that is all I can say are simply amazing.

Love and the Outcome – The God I Know

I found this song I think last year while perusing K-LOVE radio (Its the only radio station I will listen to in my car when the rare occasion I am not on iTunes music. Since then most of Love & the Outcome’s music will always be one of going to musicians.

DC Talk – Just Between You And Me

This song is from DC Talk’s Album Jesus Freak. It was the first album I ever bought for myself. My sister introduced me to DC Talk and I have seen them live at Spirit West Coast a few times. This song got me through so much depression as a teen. It’s a song that gets you on the right path with God through honesty.

Audio Adrenaline – Never Gonna Be As Big As Jesus

Audio Adrenaline. Another Christian Rock group from my early years. This song pretty much speaks for itself. I am sure in this series there will be many AA songs on my list.

Mandisa – Overcomer

If you need a song that is just uplifting to get you through a hard day, look no further than Mandisa’s Overcomer. I love this song when I am losing faith in my writing.

Laura Story – Perfect Peace

This song by Laura Story is amazing, just listen to the words. I couldn’t find a good video but I liked this one because it’s visually pleasing. If you haven’t heard her music please do, she is an amazing Christian Gospel artist.

Jonny Diaz – Breathe

If life is moving too fast and you are feeling anxious listen to Breathe by Jonny Diaz. It will bring you back to your center. This song is high on my list of songs when I am anxious. Just breathe.

I wanted to end this post with a really good song that I love. It’s Matthew West’s Day One. This song is just wow. When I found this song it was as if God was speaking to me. It brought me back to my faith. I had given up on my faith for a long time before I found it again a few years ago. This song brought me back to God when I was living in the past. It means the world to me to share what this song means. It’s a great song. It inspired me to pick up my writing again. This song is why I felt good enough to write my blog. Granted it took me awhile, but it this song that changed me.

Matthew West – Day One

Well That’s it for this edition Music that Changes my Mood. This has been really great to share.

Always Keep Fighting.

  2. I dig these tunes, too 🙂 Have you heard of “King & Country”? They’re from NZ or AUS and they’re one of my faves. A few songs that have lifted me out of some deep, dark holes are “Ocean” (Hillsong United), “Call it Grace” (Unspoken), “Broken Vessels” (Hillsong), “Shoulders” (King & Country), “The Hurt & The Healer” (MercyMe), “Run Wild” (King & Country), “Through All of It” (Colton Dixon), “Start Over” (Flame), “Just Be Held” (Casting Crowns *This one can still move me to tears on one of “those” days – you know what I mean), and “You Are More” (Tenth Avenue North). Music is my safe place 🙂

  3. James, I love your blog! When I think of you, I think of this verse: “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. ” 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
    You bring much comfort to others. God bless you!
