Power of Music

It begins with the ABC’s, B-I-N-G-O, and Jesus Loves Me. 

As a child, you learn things and remember things better if it’s in a song. 

Saw this new research that went even deeper on what that is and found that music can change your brain.  One researcher said, “It allows you to think in a way that you used to not think”

That’s one thing when you’re learning your ABC’s or your multiplication tables, it’s another when it’s learning how much God loves you. 

There’s all kinds of music you can listen to.  Music that makes you groove, run faster, get over a breakup.  I don’t know about you, but I choose music that reminds me that…

God is Stronger (Matthew West)

That he’s been with me All This Time (Brit Nicole)

There will be a day with no more tears, no more pain, no more fear (Jeremy Camp)

I Will Rise (Chris Tomlin)

You are Beautiful, treasured, sacred, His (Mercy Me)

I love what K-LOVE listener, Dorothy said, “when nobody’s words, nothing can help, when nothing else can touch my soul, music can”.

What song and lyrics has changed the way you think about God, and your life?

having internet traffic every time I try to listen to your Christian radio station online & every time my family's ringing of the phones tend to stop up the music when my family's phones tend to ring & then I see this 'Buffering' word above the volume barline the ringing of the phones tends to mess up with the internet traffic or the phone ringing tends to click the music or tends to just the phone ringing tends to bother the internet line or the internet traffic.
