The last month and a half have been very difficult, I have had major health issues to deal with, change in Jobs, and lifestyle adjustments to make. As a fan of music in general and Contemporary Christian Music specifically I have music on, most of the time.
Martin Luther’s take on music is one I have long remembered and often quoted. He understand the amazing power of music in our lives. Listen to what the good Dr. Luther has to say:
I wish to see all arts, principally music, in the service of Him who gave and created them. Music is a fair and glorious gift of God. I would not for the world forego my humble share of music. Singers are never sorrowful, but are merry, and smile through their troubles in song. Music makes people kinder, gentler, more staid and reasonable. I am strongly persuaded that after theology there is no art that can be placed on a level with music; for besides theology, music is the only art capable of affording peace and joy of the heart… the devil flees before the sound of music almost as much as before the Word of God.
During some of the most difficult days of late I have been amazed at the faithfulness of my God to come to me in Scripture, the wisdom of Others, and through Music. I am going to take you on a journey through some of the music that of late has spoken to me. I hope that you will find it speaking to you as well. In my next post I will share what has for me in these last few weeks become my theme song, and one I listen to daily, often several time a day. You will have to come back for the title, but I will tell you the group: KUTLESS send me a comment if you think you know the song.
