TOP 15 SONGS YOU NEED ON YOUR PLAYLIST IN YOUR WAITING SEASON

Waiting…

For a better job, the wifey, the hubby, the promotion, the child, the admission or simply through the process? It never feels great.

I think I’m one of those people who have been through the school of WAITING and never seem to graduate. I look back at my life and I’ve had to wait for nearly every major event of life. It’s never been easy.

I can relate COMPLETELY with the midnight ocean size tears, the roller coasters between faith surge and Hopeless dips. I also can COMPLETELY relate with every stage of loss/grief- shock, denial, anger, bargaining, acceptance and whatever else you might have felt or are feeling.

I also know like the back of my palms, the disappointment the human soul feels when you doing all God asked you to do and not getting the result you anticipated or thought he meant to deliver.
I’m very familiar with disappointment, all shades of rejection and again whatever else you might have gone through or are going through.

Inasmuch as I’m grateful I get the chance to feel ( sadness, grief, pain and all the other adjectives associated with waiting) and empathise with you via this post, I haven’t come for us to build a pity party mansion in here. (Laughs)

This is what I want to do…

I want to take you by the hand and show you the door I constantly walk through. The door which leads me to the throne of grace where I not only find grace and obtain mercy, but also find the love and acceptance I need to live out God’s purpose for my life.

Trust me, baby. There’s no better way to endure and grow through the waiting season than to constantly fill your mind with thoughts of God’s love even when you don’t believe it! Yeah, I have moments like that when my dumb head doubts that he loves me,but i know by all proofs that CHRIST is addicted-ly  in love with me. His love for me is insane.

I’ve taken the time to write out the lyrics especially for those who mayn’t be able to play the videos for want of data. I encourage you to meditate on them. They are deeply thought words not just songs.
I’ve also left links for mobile downloads so you can have them on your phones too. Send me a hug later! (Laughs)

NB: These songs appear to make more meaning right when the tears are streaming down your face.

So when you feel like not talking to God, or not going to church or not doing anything “God-dy” just turn them on.

Here we go

1. EVEN WHEN IT HURTS (Hillsong United)

1       Take this fainted heart
Take these tainted hands
Wash me in Your love
Come like grace again

PRE-CHORUS
Even when my strength is lost I'll praise You
Even when I have no song I'll praise You
Even when it's hard to find the words
Louder then I'll sing Your praise

CHORUS
I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise


BRIDGE
And my heart burns only for You
You are all You are all I want
And my soul waits only for You
And I will sing till the morning has come

And my heart burns only for You
You are all You are all I want
And my soul waits only for You
And I will sing till the miracle comes

TAG
Even when the morning comes I'll praise You
Even when the fight is won I'll praise You
Even when my time on earth is done
Louder then I'll sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise  (Source) 






2. OCEANS (Hillsong United)

You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You've never failed and You won't start now

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior (Source)








3. GRACIOUS TEMPEST (Hillsong United)
[Verse 1]
Your love towers over me
Gracious tempest endless sea
Your love is like a storm

[Verse 2]
Endless tide of mercy reign
Let it flood in my heart again
Surround me like an ocean
[Chorus]
Your love is crashing over me
It's surging like a raging sea
Immerse me in the wonder of Your love
A downpour of unending grace
Consuming all my reckless ways
My sins submerged
Your love have saved my soul
Your love is like a storm (Source)




4. JUST BE HELD (Casting Crowns)
[Verse 1]
Hold it all together
Everybody needs you strong
But life hits you out of nowhere
And barely leaves you holding on

And when you're tired of fighting
Chained by your control
There's freedom in surrender
Lay it down and let it go
[Chorus]
So when you're on your knees and answers seem so far away
You're not alone, stop holding on and just be held
Your worlds not falling apart, its falling into place
I'm on the throne, stop holding on and just be held
Just be held, just be held

[Verse 2]
If your eyes are on the storm
You'll wonder if I love you still
But if your eyes are on the cross
You'll know I always have and I always will

And not a tear is wasted
In time, you'll understand
I'm painting beauty with the ashes
Your life is in My hands

[Chorus]

Lift your hands, lift your eyes
In the storm is where you'll find Me
And where you are, I'll hold your heart
I'll hold your heart
Come to Me, find your rest
In the arms of the God who won't let go (Source)







5. HOW HE LOVES (Jesus Culture)

[Verse 1]
He is jealous for me
Loves like a hurricane
I am a tree bending beneath
The weight of His wind and mercy

When all of a sudden
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory
And I realize just how beautiful You are
And how great Your affections are for me

[Chorus]
And oh how He loves us
Oh, oh how He loves us
How He loves us
Oh

Yeah, He loves us
Oh, how He loves us
Oh, how He loves us
Oh, how He loves (2x)

[Bridge]
We are His portion
And He is our prize
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes
If His grace is an ocean, we're all sinking, ha ha

So heaven meets earth like a sloppy wet kiss
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest
I don't have time to maintain these regrets
When I think about the way that He loves us

[Chrous]
Oh, how He loves us
Oh, how He loves us
Oh, how He loves (Source)



6. ALL I NEED IS YOU (Hillsong United)
[Verse 1]
Left my fear by the side of the road
Hear You speak
Won't let go
Fall to my knees as I lift my hands to pray
Got every reason to be here again
Father's love that draws me in
And all my eyes wanna see is a glimpse of You

[Chorus]
All I need is You
All I need is You Lord
Is You Lord
All I need is You
All I need is You Lord
Is You Lord
[Verse 2]
One more day and it's not the same
Your Spirit calls my heart to sing
Drawn to the voice of my Saviour once again
Where would my soul be without Your Son
Gave His life to save the earth
Rest in the thought that You're watching over me

[Bridge]
You hold the universe
You hold everyone on earth
You hold the universe (Source)





7. WITH EVERYTHING (Hillsong)

[Verse 1]
Name above names
Lamb that was slain
Beautiful God
The king above kings
God of all things
Beautiful God
And there is no other Name
Like Jesus
Give You all of the praise
Oh Lord Jesus

[Chorus]
So let hope rise
And darkness tremble
In Your holy light
That every eye will see
Jesus our God
Great and mighty to be praised

[Verse 2]
God of all days
Glorious in all of Your ways
Majesty and wonder and grace
In the light of Your Name

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
With everything With everything
We will shout for Your glory
With everything With everything
We will shout forth Your praise

And our hearts they cry
Be glorified
Be lifted high above all names
For You our King
With everything
We will shout forth Your praise! (Source)



8. FOREVER REIGN (Hillsong)

You are good, You are good
When there's nothing good in me
You are love, You are love
On display for all to see
You are light, You are light
When the darkness closes in
You are hope, You are hope
You have covered all my sin

You are peace, You are peace
When my fear is crippling
You are true, You are true
Even in my wandering
You are joy, You are joy
You're the reason that I sing
You are life, You are life
In You death has lost its sting
Oh, I'm running to Your arms
I'm running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign

You are more, You are more
Than my words will ever say
You are Lord, You are Lord
All creation will proclaim
You are here, You are here
In Your presence I'm made whole
You are God, You are God
Of all else I'm letting go

Oh, I'm running to Your arms
I'm running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign

My heart will sing
No other Name 
Jesus, Jesus (Source) 


9. SAME POWER (Hillsong United)
Same power that conquered the grave lives in me
Lives in me, your love that rescued the earth lives in me
Lives in me. (Source)



10. HEALER (Hillsong)
(Verse)
You hold my every moment
You calm my raging seas
You walk with me through fire
And heal all my disease

(Pre-chorus)
I trust in You
I trust in You
(Chorus)
I believe You're my healer
I believe You are all I need
I believe You're my portion
I believe You're more than enough for me
Jesus, You're all I need

(Bridge)
Nothing is impossible for You
Nothing is impossible
Nothing is impossible for You
You hold my world in Your hands (Source)




11. DESERT SONG (Hillsong United)

[Verse 1]
This is my prayer in the desert
When all that's within me feels dry
This is my prayer in my hunger and need
My God is the God who provides

[Verse 2]
And this is my prayer in the fire
In weakness or trial or pain
There is a faith proved
Of more worth than gold
So refine me, Lord, through the flame
[Chorus]
And I will bring praise
I will bring praise
No weapon formed against me shall remain
I will rejoice
I will declare
God is my victory and He is here

[Verse 3]
And this is my prayer in the battle
When triumph is still on its way
I am a conqueror and co-heir with Christ
So firm on His promise I'll stand

[Chorus]
And I will bring praise
I will bring praise
No weapon formed against me shall remain
I will rejoice
I will declare
God is my victory and He is here

[Bridge]
All of my life
In every season
You are still God
I have a reason to sing
I have a reason to worship
(4x)

[Verse 4]
This is my prayer in the harvest
When favor and providence flow
I know I'm filled to be emptied again
The seed I've received I will sow (Source)

Oh, hey, what a moment You have brought me to?
Such a freedom I have found in You
You're the healer who makes all things new, yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm not going back, I'm moving ahead
Here to declare to You my past is over in You
All things are made new, surrendered my life to Christ

You have risen with all power in Your hands
You have given me a second chance
Hallelujah, hallelujah, yeah, yeah, yeah

14. I AM NOT ALONE (kari Jobe)

When I walk through deep waters
I know that you will be with me
When I’m standing in the fire
I will not be overcome
Through the valley of the shadow
Oh I will not fear

(Chorus 2x)
I am not alone
I am not alone
You will go before me
You will never leave me
(Verse 2)
In the midst of deep sorrow
I see your light is breaking through
The dark night will not over take me
I am pressing into you
Lord you fight my every battle
And I will not fear

(Bridge 4x)
You amaze me
Redeem me
You call me as your own
You're my strength
You're my defender
You're my refuge in the storm
Through these trials
You have always been faithful
You bring healing to my soul (Source)






15. THE ONE WHO REALLY MATTERS (Micheal Smith)
I feel You so close to me
I can hardly move or breathe
I can feel Your presence all around
I fall knees down to the ground
You're the one that really matters
You're the one that really matters
You're the one that really matters
You're the one that really matters
I know that I have been found
The cares of life can't hold me down
Cause You're the one I want to please
What matters now is what You think
You're the one that really matters
You're the one that really matters
You're the one that really matters
You're the one that really matters
I know that I have been found
[x2]
And I can't help but scream about the way that You moved in
Chaotic love has messed me up so I could live again
[x2]
You're the one that really matters
You're the one that really matters
You're the one that really matters
You're the one that really matters (Source)
