Music Appreciation

music, healing, God, praise
Did you know that God made us to enjoy music?
  • It’s part of being human.
  • It’s part of praising God.
  • It’s part of self-expression (bad and good).
It soothes, calms, excites, enrages, and compromises us depending on what type of music we choose.

I recently saw a video called Alive Inside about an elderly man living in a nursing home.  As the video starts, he's barely alive, sitting slumped over all day, rarely speaking. Then they hook him up to an ipod with a collection of music, including Christian music, and he's transformed.

He comes alive in ways he’s been dead for years: he speaks with enthusiasm, sings, and expresses his feelings and thoughts.

Music is a powerful aspect of our lives, another way we are finely tuned by our Creator. Make sure that your music is full of joy and life. It need not all be Christian, but be sure to include songs to the Lord (Psalm 33:3).

    1. Yes, Amanda, we are meant to cry out to the Lord in song...if we fail to do it, the rocks will cry out! Luke 19:40. Bless you!
