Music touches the heart. It can uplift your emotions when you’re down or put words to pain when you can’t find them. Worship music takes you to a great place. Here are some selections that can warm the heart and spirit.
When You Feel Alone
"I’m Not Alone” by Kari Jobe – When everything goes wrong and your emotions sweep over you like a tidal wave, you feel like no one else understands.

“Came to My Rescue” by Hillsong – If you feel lonely, it helps to remember times God rescued you in the past. This song is a humble, in-your-face prayer that both acknowledges God’s presence in the past and asks for his presence again.
When You’re Amazed at His Love
