The melody breaks through the silence. Christ the Savior is born, Jesus the love song of God is born! This is one of Chris Tomlin’s songs a remake of “It came upon the midnight clear. “
These lyrics run through my mind when I wake up in the morning. As do all the other songs I keep listening to over an over… eventually the lyrics will get into me.
Did you know that the message of a song is more believable to your brain. Music speaks to your right hemisphere where your emotions originate. So if your needing to get a certain truth, find a song with those particular lyrics and listen to it over and over.
Eventually your brain will bypass your left hemisphere logical thought and you will believe the message. This is the reason negative music has the same effect!!
This is my personal opinion: if a person listens to music that is dirty, rough and negative that person starts to become like those lyrics. They start to feel the emotions of the song.
We need to use the power of music in a positive way. I use to sing “I surrender all, I surrender all, all to Jesus I surrender, I surrender all.. on an on, over and over. I would sing this when I was struggling with negative emotions and eventually I felt better!
I also love the song: Because he lives: Because he lives I can face tomorrow.. because he lives, all fear is gone, because I know I know he holds the future, life is worth the living just because he lives.. this would help me get perspective when life was falling apart.
My pearl is the power of worship music. It can change the direction of your hour, day and entire life for that matter!
