Worship Music

For the last two weeks, I've been listening to a lot of Worship music. I don't normally do that, not because I don't enjoy listening to it, but I guess I just think of it as something I listen to at church. For whatever reason, I felt compelled one day to put on Pandora "Hillsong" and have been pretty much doing that everyday, ever since.

It's interesting, I feel happier, more hopeful, more inspired in my day-to-day. I am able to listen to music at work, so I have Worship music flowing in my ears all day long. I am a music fanatic. I always have been. I love to watch, listen, play music. It's a huge part of my life and the person that I am. So, I have lots of artists and bands I enjoy listening to, even to the point where it's hard to make a decision on what I want to listen to. But, these last two weeks, listening to Worship has just been such an easy decision. I find myself not being so critical of the vocals, or the blending of instruments, but more so being open to the encouraging lyrics they produce.

Don't hear me wrong, I am not saying non-Worship music is bad, or that you should run out and buy the latest Christian artist, or anything of the sort. I am just simply saying that I've felt inspired. I believe Worship artists seek God for songs to write. I believe when writing Worship music, it forces you to connect to the God of this Universe, the very being that made you & I. Therefore, Worship is powerful, not because it's pretty & catchy sometimes, but because it is a melody of conversations between man & God. Beautiful. Powerful. Inspiring.

I just felt like sharing that with you all. If you are feeling like your weeks have been dragging, or music just is boring to you now, try listening to some Worship music. It may change it up for you, and it's a simple way to connect with God throughout your day.



  1. there really is nothing like worship music. even if it's only playing in the background, it creates a pull and a focus toward God that's unlike anything else.

    i've never listened to the Hillsong Pandora station, but i'll have to check that one out!

    1. I agree, Charla! It's very encouraging to our souls.

      You definitely have to give it a listen!
