One of my choir directors used to tell us that music gives wings to our prayers. Those words always stuck with me. Through my journey as a listener and singer of christian music, I am often reminded of how powerful music can be. In capturing the emotion of our prayers, the joy in our praise, the pain in our struggles. The more I come to know a song, the more I feel it and find understanding in the words and melody that connects me to God. When singing in a Praise Band in my home church, each week I would learn a new song and that song would speak to me. I would discover parts of the Bible I hadn't read before in the song. I would find comfort in the words as they relate to my personal journey and the journeys of others. I always feel compelled to share both the music and the meaning I've learned.
This has been a dream of mine for a very long time now. To write and share what I learn from Contemporary Christian songs. I'm not much of a writer or much of a musician for that matter, but I do love this music and how it connects me with my Lord. I pray that others will find this same joy in listening and learning from these truly inspired musicians. I don't have a perfect vision of what I want this blog to be, but I do know that it is now time for me to see if I can make this dream happen, with the guidance of the Lord of course.
