Today I am thankful for music, including uplifting Christian songs.
Music is a beautiful thing best described from Dictionary.com as:
“an art of sound in time that expresses ideas and emotions in significant forms through the elements of rhythm, melody, harmony, and color.”
God enjoys when we praise and worship Him through songs/singing:
Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! – Psalm 95:1
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. – Colossians 3:16
A Psalm for giving thanks. Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! – Psalm 100:1-2
Sing to him a new song; play skillfully on the strings, with loud shouts. – Psalm 33:3
Christian songs are very uplifting, give encouragement, Honor God, inspire, and people can relate to them, whatever struggle or battle they are going through in life.
Have you ever listened to any Hillsong songs?
One of my favorite Hillsong songs is titled “From the Inside Out”….
A thousand times I’ve failed Still your mercy remains
And should I stumble again
Still I’m caught in your grace
Your will above all else, my purpose remains
The art of losing myself in bringing you praise
Everlasting, Your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending, Your glory goes beyond all fame
my heart and my soul, Lord I give you control
Consume me from the inside out Lord
Let justice and praise become my embrace
To love You from the inside out
Other favorites of mine include Something Beautiful – Needtobreathe, God Gave Me You – Dave Barnes, Praise You in the Storm and Come to the Well – Casting Crowns, Our God is Able and Mighty to Save – both Hillsong songs, etc.
Also, you can listen to K-LOVE Radio to find a wonderful mixture of uplifting Christian songs and encouraging stories from others all day long! Be sure to check their radio channel out!
It is amazing how much God works through uplifting Christian songs that can reach people’s hearts. It is a great way to worship and spend time with God!
Today I am thankful for music, including uplifting Christian songs! God certainly speaks to me through them. 🙂
