Every Monday I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay. It’s the continuation of a weekly hobby that goes back 40+ years. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday August 23RD 2020:

|2||1||10||There Was Jesus||Zach Williams Ft. Dolly Parton|
|3||2||15||No Impossible With You||I AM THEY|
|4||6||24||Alive & Breathing||Matt Maher|
|5||7||19||Keep Me In The Moment||Jeremy Camp|
|7||10||2||God So Loved||We The Kingdom|
|8||–||1||The Blessing||Kari Jobe, Cody Carnes, Elevation Worship|
|9||–||1||Who Am I||NeedToBreathe|
|10||–||1||Peace Be Still||Hope Darst|
# 1 This Week In:
2019 – “Nobody (But Jesus)” – Casting Crowns Ft. Matthew West
2018 – “Who You Say I Am” – Hillsong Worship
2017 – “Broken Things” – Matthew West
This week’s chart is quite the opposite of last week’s inactive chart. There are 3 new entries (most since 14 weeks ago), no non-movers, and a new # 1 smash.
Colton Dixon sings my new favorite song on the radio. I love the opening lyrics to “Miracles”. They remind me of my life 14 years ago:
♫ Ninety miles on the highway
Every day moving so fast
Taking all the wrong ways out
Never saw You coming
Stopping me in my tracks
Keeping me from the long way down ♫
YEP – That’s what Christ did for me. I never saw Him coming. He stopped me in my tracks. He performed a life-changing miracle on that day, and He hasn’t stopped since. They just happen like that.
Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes (married almost 6 years) team-up with Elevation Worship for “The Blessing” – a song that’s increasingly growing on me every time I hear it on the radio.
NeedToBreathe out of northwestern South Carolina are back with their 5TH hit on my chart – and their first in 18 months. They’ve been together for about 20 years, and they were actively releasing music to Christian radio during my “Salvation Era” (2006-2010), but none of it charted for me. When this chart was resurrected in February of 2017 they were one of the first bands that I got to know and enjoy. Their “Testify” debuted on my Week 3 chart of this current era.
And finally Hope Darst enters my chart for the first time with her debut hit “Peace Be Still”. It’s a song that I’ve been singing along to for several months now at home and in my car. It’s the title-track of Hope’s new album that was released this past Friday !
This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again this upcoming weekend – with 4 new entries on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest.
