Joy in the Vibe

“My wife’s happy, Jesus loves me, ‘aint nothin’ left to conform to.”

-KB from song “No Chains

116 stage

That is one of the best lines I have ever heard in my life…and I am 40 years old and have listened to a lot of music!  I especially love how excited his wife gets in the background at the end of the song!  I love it because it represents my life very well at this point in my journey on earth.  In fact, that is exactly how I feel.  I’m starting my mid-life ( but no crisis here), I love my wife and kids, I love Jesus, and I don’t need to conform to a world that tells me I am foolish for believing in God.  I like KB and I listen to KB because he preaches the truth, and he does it in unashamed style.  I also like Lecrae, Bizzle, TobyMac, Tedashii, Aaron Cole, Tauren Wells, Tori Kelly, and many other Christian artists that lift me up with their music every day!  I love you all, thank you!

So what is it about this type of music that I like so much?  The main reason is that it is anointed in the Holy Spirit and I can feel the joy of the Lord pumping through their songs!  I also grew up on hip-hop in the 80s and 90s, and I absolutely love a tight beat!  I am very glad for such positive alternatives to worldly hip-hop/rap.  These Christian musicians are preachers for the Lord, and they do it to a tight beat as they take the Gospel worldwide!  They also preach about the pitfalls of their past lives and they reach out to those who need help.  I respect that.

I write and blog, they rap and sing, and we are all like the Apostles trying to get God’s message out to the world.  Music is a great way to do it because music transcends boundaries.  I can hear a song in another language and not even know what they are saying, but still appreciate its beauty.  God designed us to be touched and moved by music, and I love that!

So, what kind of music do you like?  What do you listen to when you are down?  How about when you are pumped and you feel like driving with the windows down?  Next time, maybe give these Christian artists a try and see how you feel afterwards.  I guarantee you will be encouraged.  Sometimes shutting everything down and just letting the vibes wash over you is the best medicine!

Peace!

“Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs.  Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Ephesians 5:19-20
