This Ain't Your Momma's Christian Music

Many things have evolved since the 21st century first began. The means of how we connect with others has evolved; with our portable laptops and our iPhones that do any and everything under the sun. Our sources of entertainment have expanded from only newspapers and daily news to Netflix and online media outlets (Odyssey is the best obviously). The same is true for our music. Sure, Justin Bieber's voice has transformed from adorable to talented, and Drake started at the bottom and now nothing but views, but what's really happened?


"Wait, what? People actually listen to that stuff?" Listening to worship music anytime other than Sunday mornings when your mom just dragged you out of bed and is keeping you from falling asleep by flicking you on the side of the head is absurd. But why?

We seldom realize the effects of music. If asked, you might not remember the first song you heard this morning, but spend 5 minutes alone and I guarantee you will remember when you stop and realize there's been a song humming in your head all day. Our music influences what and how we think whether we realize it our not. Given the choice, I'm sure everyone would choose to have a happy day rather than a unfavorable one. So what are you listening to throughout the day? Are you positively or negatively affected from it? If your answer was negatively, then here's your fix. Change what you listen to.

YES, as crazy as it may seem, worship music is pleasant. Not only is it pleasing to the Lord, but it's also good for us and can be captivating and enjoyable.

Groups of beautifully talented musicians and songwriters have written music over the last 10 years that speaks, excites and encourages us when we are feeling anything but. Some of the most-heard tracks have come from worship groups such as: Hillsong, Bethel, Elevation, etc. Below are seven of this years's most powerful and moving songs, intended to draw us in and praise the Lord in the best way they/we know how.. With all we have!

Challenge: When you wake play these songs and see how positive your day is with the different influence! Comment below if you experience a change!

John 4:21-24 | 1 Chronicles 16:23-31

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
