So I heard on the radio this morning that the Christian station I was listening to had done a 30 day listening challenge. A caller was on the line this morning that had taken the challenge and called in with this wonderful story about how she had fallen away from Christ and her friend told her about the listening challenge and she decided to do it and the songs touched her so much that she was inspired to get back in her Bible and it has positevely impacted every area of her life.
The Lord also uses music to speak to me. There have been many times where a specific song will come on and it is exactly what I needed to hear at that exact moment. There have been days when I’m just feeling down and realized that I had been too busy to turn on the radio or my playlist on my phone and as soon as I turn it on and start listening, my spirits are lifted!
The day I took the leap of faith and gave my notice to my employer back in ND without having a new job lined up in AZ, I remember walking back into my office after just talking to a co-worker about it and I was admittedly thinking “what did I just do?” and right when I walked back into my office, the song “No Turning Back” by Brandom Heath was playing from my phone. There could have been any song playing at that time, but the Lord reassured me with the exact words I needed to hear! Our God is so incredibly amazing, I just can’t praise Him enough!!!
I’m going to issue the same challenge to everyone reading this. If you don’t already listen to Christian music on a regular basis, take the 30 day challenge. Listen to NOTHING but Christian music for 30 days…in the car, at work, etc. If you don’t normally listen to music, START. Make a point to to find a local Christian station and listen. Let’s see how the Lord uses music to speak to you!! 🙂
