Tuesday's Ten - Favorite Contemporary Christian Songs

I listen to a wide variety of musical styles, depending on the mood I may be in. I love country, Broadway/movie soundtracks, classical, 80s rock, traditional Catholic hymns, & so much more. Typically, though, I'm usually tuned into the local Contemporary Christian station. I find so many wonderful, uplifting songs there...plus, I don't have to worry about making sure the munchkins aren't hearing anything inappropriate.

For today, I thought I'd share some of my favorite Contemporary Christian songs. I'm not linking to YouTube for these, but I'm sure you can find all of them there. As with most of my Tuesday's Ten lists, this is not in any particular order.

Above All by Michael W. Smith - This was the first song that really got me hooked on our local radio station.

On My Knees by Jaci Valesquez - Such a powerful young voice singing such a powerful song!

Blessings by Laura Story - This one brings tears to my eyes, esp. lately.

Slow Fade by Casting Crowns - This song was in the movie Fireproof.

Never Alone by Barlow Girls - a very comforting song, esp. when you feel like there's no one there for you

Lose My Soul by Toby Mac - a fun song w/ a great message

El Shaddai by Amy Grant

By Heart by Point of Grace - They have many great songs & you can't go wrong w/ any of them, but this is one of my favorites.

Joseph's Song by Michael Card - This Christmas song is sung from Joseph's point of view.

Jesus Take the Wheel by Carrie Underwood - This is one of those crossover songs that bridges the gap between country & Christian music.
