25 Christian Songs For Bad Days

I asked a few friends what were their favorite go to Christian songs for the bad days. What songs made them cheer up or just jam out to when they’re having a bad day. I added a bunch I like as well. I could of listed more than 25, maybe I’ll make a part two. Either way, I love being able to just shut out the world, plug in my headphones and listen to music that seriously heals the soul, heart and mind. Songs that remind you that you’re not alone, that God is always there with you. That’s like the greatest feeling in the world. Sometimes you will have bad days, bad seasons, but remember you’re never alone. If you can’t find a friend to talk to, God is always there.
