Music has always been a major part of my life. I loved to hear my mother sing. The radio was usually on in the family car. Meet the Beetles was on the turntable as was Mario Lanza.
When I was in elementary school, I started singing harmony in a chorus and continued this throughout high school and a bit in college and church. I now sing on the church worship team.
Ever hear of an earworm? It is when you can’t get a tune out of your head. Often, I fall asleep with a song on my mind and wake up with one as well.
In the last few years, I have found that I have to be very careful of what I listen to. Music has such power! A song can bring me back to middle school, to memories of a dating relationship, to sorrowful times in my life, to sinful times that I don’t need to dwell on bringing on spiritual attack. One time, I actually had to leave a store because a song playing brought on a panic attack!
For new readers, if you haven’t figured it out already, I love Jesus. I try to love Him with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength. It is for that reason that I have taken to listening to only Christian themed and classical music.
Have at it, earworms. I am safe with what I have been listening to.
