Music has always been a huge part of life, both general music as well as Christian music. I’ve often found that when I’m struggling I find myself listening to music that lifts my spirit, or when I need reminded of God’s love for me, I find myself listening to songs of praise and worship – Why? I believe because God has erected me to that music.
Music is such a huge inspiration to me in my Christian life, that I often thank God for those who have been inspired by Him to write the music (and the words). I read the following prayer on a friends Facebook status a few days ago (You know who you are, I hope you don’t mind me using it):
We are moved by music and word , given through God , we all have different tastes , but we give thanks to those who inspire us through ,in word music and song … however it touches or moves us , in whatever form it takes we give you the thanks and praise …. for the gift you give these people who sing , speak , and write your word what an important ministry , IN YOUR NAME WE PRAY … AMEN .
