Once again, you must be choosy in picking out a station on the internet, but I have found a couple that I truly enjoy. The first one is The Gospel Station which plays entirely Southern Gospel music with very little commercial interruption (and I mean VERY little). Of course, there are still a few songs on there that I don't exactly like, but for the most part, I really enjoy their music. It's great for when I'm working around the house or exercising.
When I'm writing, I turn on Pandora radio. This is a unique site in that it lets you create your own radio station. You type in an artist or style that you like, and it creates a station for you based on your preferences. Beyond that, it allows you to fine-tune your station. For example, when a song comes on that you really like, with the click of a button you can tell Pandora to find more songs similar to the one you liked. On the flip side, if a song comes on that you don't like, one button click tells Pandora not to play any more songs like that. I have my Pandora radio playing in the background right now. I created a station of soft instrumental music for my enjoyment. Jason created a station of soundtrack music. We both love our stations.
So, why did I think this was important enough to post in my blog? Well, how many times is music mentioned in the Bible? I can't give you an exact number, but I can tell you it is mentioned a lot and, as far as I know, always in a positive way. Music is a gift from God. Music (if it's the right kind) can be a means of worship. Music is stress-relieving. Music can bring forth emotion. Music is important. I truly believe that!
So, if you're having trouble finding music you can appreciate and enjoy, you may want to check out the ones I mentioned. If you don't like them, hey, no hard feelings. I just felt it was important to share this with you.
Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.
