31 Days: Day 9

What do you listen to?

I was driving in the car today listening to the Christian radio station and I realized how much it impacted my mood. It's too easy to let garbage enter our ears without noticing. 

For example the top 5 Billboard Songs include lyrics such as:

  • I'd be waking up, in the morning probably hating myself and I'd be waking up, feeling satisfied but guilty as hell.

  • A girl whose heart gets hotter when night comes

  • So this is it? I sold my soul for this?
  • I'm really gonna miss you picking fights and me, falling for it screaming that I'm right
  • I'll dress nice, I'll look good, I'll go dancing alone I will laugh, I'll get drunk, I'll take somebody home

The top 5 Christian songs?:

  • You're rich in love, and You're slow to anger Your name is great, and Your heart is kind
  • Oh Father, give me grace to forgive them Cause I feel like the one losin'
  • You rescued me And I am Yours forever You saved me, remade me
  • Even when the jury and the judge Say you gotta right to hold a grudge It’s the whisper in your ear saying ‘Set It Free’
  • But when I hear You whisper, "Child lift up your head" I remember, oh God, You're not done with me yet

When I take a minute to compare the two lists it's clear what I want to be listening to. What do you listen to when you aren't paying attention?

  1. I love the Christian radio station. Some times when I am In a car I get a feeling that I am being yelled at and then I realize that it is the song on the radio and someone has changed my station!! I never get that feeling when I am listening to Christian songs, they just sing to my soul !!
