I will sing to the LORD with my whole being; I will sing to my God continually! Psalm 104:33
With a long list of things to do, finding time to sit down and read the Bible is hard for me some days. Life is demanding and full of distractions that keep me from reading the word. That is when my radio saves me. Sounds silly but it’s true.
Years ago a good friend introduced me to a local Christian radio station. Little did I know what an impact that would have on my life. At first, I was hesitant to listen because I had never heard Christian music before. So I started listening in the car on the way to work, and little by little it started to grow on me. Now years later it’s the only thing I listen to. When I wake in the morning, I cut the radio on and it’s the last thing I cut off at night. I’m filled with the uplifting continual reminder of God’s love, playing in the background of my day to day life. The good days, and even on the bad days, the music is there… God is there.
Daily I’m singing praises and building a relationship with my heavenly father. You may catch me singing while in the carpool line at school, doing laundry, cleaning the house, and running errands. To me, anytime is a good time to sing out praises to the Lord. Now my children have started to sing along to the songs, too. To know how the music is positively impacting them brings a smile to my face.
I like to think that’s how God feels about us when we sing out to him, a big smile on his face. When I hear them singing one of the songs they have heard on the radio, it fills my heart with joy. Little do they know that they are forming a relationship with God just by that small act of worship. All God wants is to have a relationship with us, and what a great way to start. My days are filled with constant praise through the music, and I pray that yours will be, too. Our family knows how loved we are by God with every song that we hear and sing.
So I encourage you to turn your FM dial, and find a station where you can sing continual praises to the Lord, too!!
