Arms Wide Open by Creed

"Arms Wide Open" may quite possibly be the most popular Creed song they've ever recorded. The song depicts all things faith. People tend to turn to church and their faith when they are at their most vulnerable state in life. There comes a moment, in everyone's life, when they have to self-reflect and identify the things that need to change. If your arms are wide open then you'll be more inclined to find the meaning behind your struggles and the challenges that you are presented with in life.

Him by Lily Allen

Lily Allen's song "Him" is about God himself. The song is about the emotional and internal wrestling that we all have about our beliefs. Allen asks questions that we all have asked at some point in our life about the man upstairs. We have all wondered what God is like and how he would perceive the everyday happenings in life that we experience and he observes. While the song has a humorous underlying tone, the song celebrates human nature's constant questions.

What I've Done by Linkin Park

"What I've Done" by Linkin Park is a song that speaks about confessions and the search for repentance. We must all face the good and bad things that we've done throughout our life. We cannot change the mistakes that we've made along the way. Instead we must let go and start again with a reborn approach on life that is better educated and enlightened.

Going to church gives sinners the opportunity to repent their sins and ask the Lord for forgiveness. If we continue to live stagnant within our mistakes then the circle of hatred will only live on.

Who Will Save Your Soul by Jewel

"Who Will Save Your Soul" by Jewel is an in-depth examination of life events and the judgment day that we will all eventually face. The question of who will save your soul is the long standing question that we are all faced with. At the end of the day, no matter what you do or don't do, you will have to face a greater force that gets the final say. Attending church and staying true to your faith is what will save your soul when it's all said and done.

Jesus Walks by Kanye West

"Jesus Walks" by Kanye West preaches to everyone the one and only person that they need in life - Jesus! Once you shed everything and allow simplicity to take over, the only person that can explain or provide an explanation to the unexplainable is Jesus. He is savior and will always be there no matter what struggles and issues we face because Jesus walks for everyone.

Use Somebody by Kings of Leon

"Use Somebody" by Kings of Leon is a song that has a lot of meaning that can be viewed in many lights. However, considering the lead singer's father is a preacher there is no doubt that there is a correlation between church and the lyrics in the song. Who else would you be able to use when times are rough, when times are perfect or just when you're having a bad day in general. Your church and Lord are the only ones that will always stand by your side when you're waging wars for better or worse.

You Raise Me Up by Josh Groban

"You Raise Me Up" by Josh Groban should be played before or after each service at church. When the world seems like it's coming to an end, God is the only person that will always raise us up and help us stand tall. There's no end or doubt in his powers because he is the hope and perseverance that we need when times get rough and the storm clouds are hanging down amongst us.
