These songs lift you out of that dark place of insecurity, fill your heart with worship, and allow you to see the light of His love.
Many of these songs reflect the hurt I felt when I was insecure. They also reminded me of the beauty that exists in me and the love that’s here for me (even when it doesn’t feel like it). Now I must warn you…this ain’t your momma’s playlist. lol
I love good ol’ fashioned worship songs, but this is not that playlist. If that’s your style, check out some of my other playlists.
The Insecurity songs on this list are by young Christian artists and mostly have a TOP 40 sound. You’ll hear a mix of upbeat and slow songs and the message they deliver is powerful.
Now for the good stuff…

Songs About Insecurity Playlist – Top 10
The playlist has dozens of songs, but below you’ll find my top 10 songs
Through your Eyes | Britt Nicole
This is my all-time favorite song to listen to when my self-esteem needs some CPR. Trust me, you’ll have this one on repeat. #banger
Favorite lyric – “Cause you stood right there and then you broke apart the lies. You told me I had something beautiful inside. You brought to life the part of me I thought had died”
Love your Life | Hollyn
In the moments when you’re struggling to find a reason to keep going, the lyrics in this song will motivate you to get back on track.
Favorite lyric – “Don’t look to the left or right, You know the future’s worth the fight”
Better | Britt Nicole
It’s hard to pick just one favorite lyric from this song because truthfully I belt out this entire song from beginning to end. The whole thing speaks to who I was… a girl/teenager who just wanted to hide and fade into the background. If you’re in that place now, it will get better!
Favorite lyric – “Hey girl in the back of the classroom afraid to stand out. So scared that you’ll say the wrong thing so you don’t make a sound. Paper planes in the sky, crashing one at a time. Praying that they don’t land where you hide”
Known | Tauren Wells
Sigh… my favorite devotional song. Listening to this song brings me to tears. I’ve hated God and I’ve felt like He didn’t love me. This song is a heartfelt reminder that God loves us, no matter who we are and what we’ve done.
Favorite lyric – “I’m fully known and loved by You. You won’t let go no matter what I do. And it’s not one or the other – It’s hard truth and ridiculous grace, to be known fully known and loved by You.”
The Breakup Song | Francesca Battistelli
If you’ve ever struggled with fear, allow me to introduce you to your new ANTHEM. Fear doesn’t have to own you. Singing along to this song will remind you that you have power over fear.
Favorite lyric: “fear, you don’t own me. There ain’t no room in this story. I ain’t got time for you Telling me what I’m not”
Imagine Me | Kirk Franklin
This is my jam and it’s an “oldie” but goodie. If you’ve ever felt unloveable to yourself, others, and even God – this song will speak to your heart. Open your heart to a new way of viewing yourself.
Favorite lyric: “Imagine me, being free, trusting you totally, finally I can Imagine me. I admit it was hard to see, You being in love with someone like me. But finally I can Imagine me.”
You Know my Name | Tasha Cobbs
You’re not forgotten, you’re not dismissed, you’re not overlooked – the God of heaven and earth knows your name. He loves you and he wants to heal your broken heart. This song is the perfect message for anyone feeling forgotten by God.
Favorite lyric: “God, You know me, So I trust You with my life“
Work of Art | Britt Nicole
Giirrll, by now you know that Britt Nicole speaks to my whole entire life. #fangirl. Anyway, I used to HATE the way I looked and spent every day comparing myself to other women and tearing myself apart.
If you’re feeling inadequate, feeling like you’re not beautiful because you don’t have the hair, booty, boobs, etc… that you want, LISTEN UP QUEEN – you my dear are a work of art.
Favorite lyric: “I know you Don’t think you’re beautiful Cause we don’t look like The girls on the cover of Vogue…“
No Filter | Britt Nicole
Selfies, insta-stories, snapchat… it’s so easy to hide behind perfectly filtered pictures and to get caught up in the image we portray to other people. But, what about when those photos make our lives look better than they are? Or when the smile we’re wearing fades when the cameras off?
Can we be real with ourselves. If you’re struggling silently, I dedicate this song to you…
Favorite lyric: “what we let the whole world see Isn’t really you and me. So tell me was a picture worth?“
Gracefully Broken | Tasha Cobbs Leonard
Has it ever occurred to you that when God made you, He thought you were perfect? The things that are hurting you, destroying your self-esteem, causing you to feel unloved… God can take all those things and use them to turn your life into something amazing. Ask Him what He had in mind when He created you, and surrender to His will for you. It’ll change your life. I promise.
Favorite lyric: “Have Your way, use me Lord, I surrender (I surrender)
Do Your will, it’s all Your way, I surrender (I surrender)
Use my life for Your glory, say I surrender all (I surrender)
You want to tell Him right where you are (I surrender)”
