How about listing to only Christian music, and nothing else?
Hey, would you like to join me in listening to only Christian music?
It will change your life! And for the better! Trust Me!
There was a time about 11 to 12 years ago when I use to listen to most any country music station that came on the radio. What I now call worldly music. ( It was in small amounts and not everyday mind you, but still. ) I never really thought much of it. I never really considered that it wasn't pleasing or glorifying to God. That never even crossed my mind. I was just enjoying the music. Enjoying the beat and rhythm.
Then something changed. Somehow it hit me that all that we do, all that we watch, or listen to is to be pleasing and God honoring if we are indeed His children. And most country music certainly does not do that!
So that was it. I was off of every station but Christian. no more worldly junk for me! That was the same time when I changed the movies I watched and the books I read. And the same goes for our children even in their teens. They know I don't allow or respect worldly music.
Unfortunately when out and about in stores, in Doctor or dentist offices I sometimes have to listen to the worldly music against my will. And what a shock I get! Seems the worldly music has gotten much worse since I use to listen to it. It was some horrible stuff I heard and just a common country station. YUCK!
My all time favorite verse in the Bible to use to rate music, movies, ect... is Philippians 4:8.
If the music, movies, and books fits this verse then your good to go, if not out it goes! That simple!
And we need to really consider the power of music and lyrics. They effect us more than we think. And they clog our brain. So if it is is not good stuff then there we are with all this junk in there, and floating around, and coming to our memory when ever we want or maybe even when we don't want it to.
Christian music is so full of encouragement, of hope, inspiration, and powerful words and truth that lift us up and keeps us going strong as a believer. And if you have the music playing through out your day you are like getting a devotional after devotional all day long! Not just your 15 to 30 minutes in the morning or evening.
And what better words, or phrases to have floating around in your head, and coming off your lips! God gets praise and glory! And you get a boost of energy and a dose of hope to keep on going!
My favorite Christian radio station is out of Tyler, Texas. So when we are down here in our Texas home that is the radio station I have on in our home or car and it is continuous great Christian music from many great Christian artist.
And now my son has figured out that we can also hear it when we are in our Canada home too!
So if you are going to do Christian music this is the radio station you will want. Wherever you are in the world you can still listen to it!!
So I do hope you will, if you don't already, take up the challenge with me. Your whole life will be blessed for it! And God will be honored!
~May every little detail of your life be honoring and pleasing to God!
In Him, Mae
