Do you ever wake up with a song on your mind? Or find yourself humming a tune randomly and wonder where that came from? Sometimes it is some annoying jingle or song that you don’t even like. What I am noticing is that often the ones first thing in the morning are actually just what I need to hear and remember for me day. I guess this is especially true because they are often Christian praise songs for me. My perspective is shifted and I am rehearsing truth through song.
The challenge comes in not only relying on these random songs in your head but surround yourself with the positive and affirming truth you need to hear. Working with youth, I used to see the difference made by what songs they were choosing to listen to. What are you feeding your mind? What messages are you constantly rehearsing through the music and lyrics playing?
What I love more than anything is hearing the spontaneous songs that my daughter comes up with. She sometimes doesn’t make total sense but the nuggets of praise and truth that shine through makes my heart sing.
