Music is an interesting thing. No-matter who you are or where you are on this planet, everyone speaks the language of music! Some music is calming and relaxing while other genres are meant to excite and pump you up. Some just make you want to get up and dance! What is it about music that makes it so powerful?
I think music is unique and special because each song that has ever been written comes from the heart of a person. They were inspired and motivated to write about their life, their feelings, their dreams. The songs I like best are the ones that are real. The ones I can relate to ... that have a story behind them and can only be understood by another heart with the same feelings.
Music isn't just people singing. It's a way for God to communicate with us. He speaks to us through songs. His presence can be felt while listening to it. He uses music to heal, enlighten, and touch us. Maybe next time you want to speak to God, don't pray, but sing.
I couldn't agree more. I was trying to do a post on music the other day, but I'm not very eloquent so it was hard to write about my thoughts on my music. You described it so well! Music can sometimes (or oftentimes) express what plain words can't.ReplyDelete
By the way, I wanted to tell that I haven't disappeared from the blogosphere! I am alive.:) I had to make my blog private, for how long I'm not sure, but if you'd like an invitation, then please email me at email@example.com. (Completely up to you--don't feel like you're required to read my blog!)
Thanks!! :) (and great post, too :D)

Music that inspires you, teaches you something, or you can relate to are the best ones out there.ReplyDelete

I love that! Music is half my life :) [The other half is words...lol :)]ReplyDelete
