Nalini has an ear for curating good music. Chances are she's made (or will eventually make) a list that fits your musical needs.


We all go through difficult times and sometimes words and actions are not enough to help get us through those times. There are times in life when we are brought to our knees and all we can do is pray. While prayer is not something that should only be done during hard times, it is something that becomes salient during those times. In those difficult times, prayer is powerful, but so is the music that pulls our souls toward God.

Most of these songs fall under the Christian genre but they are also good for a belief in God that does not necessarily have to be specific to the Christian faith. Below are motivational, inspirational, powerful, humbling, and spiritual songs to help you through hard times and adversity, to help you overcome obstacles, and to help you keep going when you want to give up. Hopefully, these songs remind us that “If God brings you to it, He’ll bring you through it” and that there’s nothing that we are entrusted with that we are not able to handle. You can do it and, with God, all things are possible.
