Lyrics Matter

Music has always been a major part of my life.  I loved to hear my mother sing.  The radio was usually on in the family car.  Meet the Beetles was on the turntable as was Mario Lanza.

When I was in elementary school, I started singing harmony in a chorus and continued this throughout high school and a bit in college and church.  I now sing on the church worship team.

Ever hear of an earworm?  It is when you can't get a tune out of your head.  Often, I fall asleep with a song on my mind and wake up with one as well.

In the last few years, I have found that I have to be very careful of what I listen to.  Music has such power!  A song can bring me back to middle school, to memories of a dating relationship, to sorrowful times in my life, to sinful times that I don't need to dwell on bringing on spiritual attack.  One time, I actually had to leave a store because a song playing brought on a panic attack!

For new readers, if you haven't figured it out already, I love Jesus.  I try to love Him with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength.  It is for that reason that I have taken to listening to only Christian themed and classical music.

Have at it, earworms.  I am safe with what I have been listening to.
