You Still Hear

It fills the atmosphere whether or not you listen you still hear...

   Music.  It makes more of an impact than you think.  What you listen to infiltrates your thoughts, attitudes, and even actions.  Don't believe me?
   I have seen this in my own life.  I mostly listen to Christian music, but I like a little bit of everything.  When I listen to secular artists I find myself focusing more on what they sing about - which tends to be boys and relationships.  You all know that I -and you- have much better things to think about.  For some reason, these songs also seem to get stuck in my head much easier, solidifying their messages in brain.  In the same way, though, when I listen to music with a Christian message that is what I tend to think about.  Songs about God's grace, power, and love keep me focused on that.  When challenging and inspiring songs get stuck in my head, I am convicted all day.
   Still don't believe me when I say music makes a big difference?  Test it for yourself, then.  I hereby issue a challenge to all of you, no matter what kind of music you currently listen to.  For the month of April, 30 days, listen to only Christian music.  Only music focused on God.  Do it, and see what kind of impact it makes on your life.
   Don't think there is any Christian music you'll like?  I think you are sadly mistaken.  Try listening to K-LOVE radio, and look up bands like tobyMac, Beckah Shae, Skillet, and Francesca Battastelli on YouTube.  There are soooo many Christian artists out there that I know you will find someone you love.
   So, are you willing to jump out of your comfort zone and take a chance?  Only Christian music, starting April 1st, for 30 days.  Are you in?  Let me know in the comments!

Disclaimer: I am not  saying that all secular music is awful, bad, sinful, or whatever.  I still listen to it, and there are songs that I love that are not Christian.  I am not saying "never listen to secular music again"(just for the month of April).  Maybe God is telling you that, but I am not.  Just so ya know....
