I didn’t used to listen to Christian music in the car all that much, but as I am growing in my faith I’m seeing real value in it. Instead of listening and singing along to songs about breaking up, hundred dolla bills, infidelity, depression, binge drinking and objectification … I’m filling my mind with things of love, hope, gratefulness and unmeasured joy from our Heavenly Father.
I love music from all kinds of genres, but this changes my mindset. It changes my attitude. It resets my tone. It saves the guy driving 25 in a 45 in front of me from getting tailgated and cut off! And in addition to the feel-good aspect of it, I’m learning. It ministers to me, teaches me, even convicts me. (And my kids can listen to it! I even want them to.)
If you’ve never listened to Christian music before, give this playlist a shot. Christian music has come a long way in the last decade, especially in the last few years. It is no longer trying to catch up to the quality or trend of mainstream music, it is pushing beyond with innovation from talented artists.
