More Hope for the Hopeless

Last week I devoted my Music Monday post to a playlist of “music that is particularly helpful to people who are in less than hopeful situations.” I ran out of time to create a complete list of my favorite encouraging songs, so today I’m posting part two of my list. The songs on this list are ones that recognize that we all go through struggles and challenges in life, but that God is there as our hope and our refuge in times of trouble. This is certainly not an exhaustive list, but it’s a start.

Once again I’ve linked to a YouTube video of each song instead of embedding the video so that this post doesn’t become unwieldy and overly long. Each video will open in a new window or tab of your browser so this page will remain open and easy to get back to.

  1. thanks for this, Linda, I’ll be certain to have a look through! I love ‘it is well with my soul’ – possibly my favourite hymn, of all. love, char

    • Char, I think the only hymn I like better than “It is well with my soul” is “Amazing Grace.” I hope you find some songs on this list, and the one from the prior Monday, that are an encouragement to you. Peace, Linda

  2. This is a good list for me to explore when I’m home alone during the day and I can blast the music the way I like.

    Maybe other people feel this way, but when life is sweet (as it is for me today) I’m in no big hurry to tune in. However… when I need God the most, I’m singing my heart out. Lacking maturity, but true.

    • Linda, I can hardly get through a day without music – preferably Christian rock. I listen to my iPod in a docking station while I’m in the shower and getting ready for work. I listen to CDs in the car on the way to and from work. And I listen to my iPod with headphones while I make dinner. I hope you find something encouraging on this list, whether life is sweet or not quite so. Peace, Linda

  3. Aubrey is sleeping by the computer right now, but I’m going to play us these later. I recognize some, but don’t know others, so we’ll be blessed and ministered to, thanks to you and our Jesus!
    God bless you, beautiful music mentor Linda, and all the ways He works through you!
