As we make all the required effort to get accustomed to the ‘new normal’, It’s essential to highlight some of the activities that make the quarantine a bit more bearable. I shared a playlist of my favorite songs at the moment with my sisters and they loved it! So Nkechi (my sister who actually designed this blog) suggested that I write an article about these songs because you deserve to discover them too!

1. Oasis by Kalley

Kalley is a part of ‘Bethel Music’, a famous music group focusing on contemporary gospel worship songs. This song is one of the many uplifting songs in her album ‘faultlines‘ which she released right in the middle of a chaotic season in her life. The 6th largest fire in California history had just consumed her city and left it in ruins and she was so devastated that she almost quit songwriting but as always, God was her ‘Oasis’. Here’s the full story behind the album. Perhaps we can all relate to this story especially now that the COVID-19 is ruining our entire planet but it is important to always keep in mind that we have an Oasis who’s always right in the middle of it all, making all things work together for our good.

P.S: You should also listen to ‘Right in the middle of it‘ from the same album; awesome lyrics!

2. Anchor by Hulvey

This song is a part of the EP BRKNHRT which was just released in February 2020 (during the pandemic). Isolating alone can drive you totally crazy. I know this because I’ve been there. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve experienced an unimaginable transformation in the way mind works. From being constantly anxious and worrying about things I cannot control to taking deep breaths and laying it all on my ‘Anchor’. Hulvey says in this song: ‘It’s not about talking about you, it’s building my whole life around you!’

I wish I could type out the entire lyrics of this song but thankfully it’s already on the internet.

3. Starting Now by David Dunn

Best believe that David is one of my all-time favorites! This song speaks about trusting God especially in the times we are overwhelmed with doubts and fears just like now. In the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is really difficult to follow a plan we don’t completely understand but that’s what faith is about init? Starting now, I hope we can all pledge to trust God even when we don’t have it all figured out because his plans for us are always perfect.

4. Courage by Social Club Misfits ft (Tree Giants)

Social club misfits (known as Social Club from 2012 until 2016), is a Christian hip hop duo. Their song ‘courage’ which was released in 2016 was the first song they wrote after rebranding and changing their name.
Courage is definitely something we all need right now to be able to boldly sway through the seemingly defeating waves of this pandemic. This song reminds us to ‘hold our heads up and never give up’!

5. Keep Me in the Moment by Jeremy Camp

I chose to leave this one for last because it pretty much sums it all up. Jeremy wrote this song for a movie this year but now all theaters are closed! This medium article explains how it’s really a song for our current crisis. No matter the situation, it’s important to always focus on the moment and the things that matter now more than ever: family, friends and a strong relationship with God. The video also shows this. Jeremy says “I’ve been thinking ‘bout lately, maybe I can make a change and let you change me so, with all of my heart this is my prayer.. oh Lord, keep me in the moment. Help me live with my eyes wide open cause I don’t wanna miss what you have for me’’

As you have already noticed, these are mostly contemporary gospel songs and they are quite uncommon even though they have extremely beautiful and relatable lyrics. I hope that in this era of social distancing, we do not distance ourselves from God. This is really what matters for he remains our clarity in the midst of all the chaos.

What songs have you been listening to lately? Please let me know in the comment section below and I promise to check them all out and reply with my verdict. I’d really love to hear what you hear too!

P.S: If you love these songs and their meanings, please share this article. Someone in your network may need it too.

    It’s beautiful how I can draw a straight line of connectivity between this post and the previous one. In the relaxations, (as encouraged by the previous post) we should still find time for God. It is only in faith that suffering can reveal its purity to us. Thanks for this post Dikachi, especially because it reminds me of a photo I always saw hung up in my dad’s room when I was a little boy.

      I like that you were able to connect both posts! This blog is really just me using my own experiences to provide some form of ‘coaching’ to others in similar situations. Alas, we’re all in this together 😀
