turn up the music
I love my music up loud, for me its the only way to listen, to feel the beat, to feel the music just reach in and touch your soul. Music makes me smile, it makes the day better whatever your going through. Whether we are gifted to play music like David, or whether you are like me and just have a gift to listen, music makes us feel better, it gives us hope, it places a smile on our face. Whatever mood we are in we can change the station, and have the music fit just what our heart needs. The hearts of man in our world need Jesus, people need to know He is true, He is real, and He is here. We are going to have to turn up the music so others can hear what Jesus has for them! As christians we just can't be quiet, and keep all His glory bottled up in our hearts, we must turn it up, make it so all know Him as we do. We can't be quiet, we must share, and turn it up and tune it to what people need to hear, not always what they want to hear. If we turn it up, if we proclaim loudly, others are going to catch on to the beat, they are going to feel the music in their hearts and they will see Jesus lift them up, they will feel Jesus in their presence. Everyone is going to hear some kind of music, so why not turn ours up so they can hear the truth, the real music that will change our lives forever? We cannot live our lives as a quiet christian, if we want to make a change we have to learn to get out of our box, get out of our little circle, get out of our comfort zone and turn it up a notch. Just think if we all turned it up so others could hear, so they could see, what amazing things would happen for the kingdom of God! Don't be afraid to turn the music up, turn it up and praise the One who came to save you, the One who is returning for you, the One who has a made a way! Music gives life to the soul. Turn it up today, turn it up loud, and watch Your Savior do His thing~ 2 Chronicles 7:6 " And the priests attended to their services; the Levites also with instruments of the music of the Lord, saying,'For His mercy endures forever,' whenever David offered praise by their ministry. The priests sounded trumpets opposite them, while all Israel stood."
