The other day I was feeling a little sad and discouraged. In the midst of my sad thoughts, I stopped myself and thought of something my boyfriend does. It seems like whenever we are going somewhere, he always has godly music playing. Michael often sings along…and he makes it a point to surround himself with Christian music.
I am so thankful for the example of my Michael. That particular day I turned on Casting Crowns…and my discouragement and sadness dissipated as I focused instead on the Lord and His greatness!
It made me stop and consider those things that surround me. It’s amazing how even background music can totally affect my mood. When I am upset, sad, or discouraged, it definitely alters my mood to turn on Christ-honoring music or sing a hymn. It takes my focus off myself and onto Him!
