Song of the Week

One of the hardest things for new Christians to do is give up the music they are accustomed to listening to.  My husband and I can attest that it is definitely a process.  First, you have to clear your mind of all the negative ideas you already have about Christian music (Gospel is for old people, Christian rap is whack, etc).  Most of us have an aversion toward Christian music that we don't even know we have.  It's cool on a Sunday, but turn it on Tuesday and people are looking at you funny.  Second, we have to make it a habit, and we do that by repetition.  We have to tune our ears to enjoy the sound.  That means when our fingers start itching to switch the station back to Lil Wayne and Trey Songz, we have to be able to say no and stay true to our process of developing good listening habits.  I know it sounds like a hassle, but honestly it's not that hard.  When you find artists and genres that you enjoy listening to, you'll be surprised at how relieved you are to be able to sing a song without bleeping out half of it, or listen to a song without having to try to convince yourself, "I don't really believe what they say, it's just a nice beat."  With these thoughts in mind, I've decided to share a new song every week that I have found uplifting and enjoyable  (click on the red link below).  I hope you will give these songs and artists a chance, but remember these are just my preferences.  There is plenty of music out  there for everybody.
