This post provides 22 worship songs for when you’re hurting. As Christians, we know when we offer a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving to God, He turns our situations around completely. We can be encouraged and remember He is greater than anything we are facing. You will be comforted, encouraged, and maybe even break out dancing with at least one of these songs! These are some of my favorites. All the songs are linked to YouTube videos so you can enjoy a snippet to see if they are for you.

Mix with Bible Study
Hopefully, these songs have lifted you to a place of praise and thanksgiving to God. That’s where miracles happen! However, don’t stop there. Go deep in studying the Bible about whatever it is that has you concerned. Please read this post here on how to do a topical Bible study, and this one here on tools to help you go deeper in your Bible study.
Getting into discouragement can quickly lead a Christ-follower into distrusting God and then fear. This is where the enemy comes in to wreak havoc.
When you are discouraged, do the opposite of what your physical self wants to do and begin to give praise and thanksgiving to God. This pleases God. It will build your faith and shore up joy and peace in your life. Better yet, you give the enemy no room in your life and you will be reassured as God will solve your problems.
