"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

Many times when I am going through a lot of emotional pain the volume of my praise music increases! When I am hurting bad, having the music up very loud (in my car or at home) may psychologically feel better. Like I feel more alive because my whole being is vibrating from the intensity of the pounding of the music being so loud???

Am I alone in believing this???


  1. No, JBR, I do this too. I sing really loud along with the music and when I'm done I tell the Lord its O.K. to take out his earplugs now :) I really put my heart into it. Makes me feel better.

  2. There is a power in music that is beyond comprehension .... and finding Him in that power is just twice as good

  3. I think any stimulus that is strong enough can sometimes force our attention onto it and off of ourselves and our own painful thoughts and feelings.

    If praise music - REALLY LOUD PRAISE MUSIC - works, then I say "go for it".

    Love and prayers,

  4. Oh no, you are not alone on this one. I love to crank it up when I am blue! Praise music rocks.

  5. I am not actually christian... but I am extremely spiritual. This is a new thing for me. A year ago, I was completely afraid and embarassed to even look at my own spirituality.

    Regardless, I have started listening to k-love in the car. If you don't know, it is a very christian radio station.

    I find that the music makes me feel good and closer to God. I am becoming desensitized to the words that used to trigger so much in me - words like Jesus, which I know might surprise you or shock you, but this was a big problem for me with a lot of people. Sometimes I still have to change the station when it gets to be too much in the dogma - the telling me what I must do or else kind of thing - but mostly I find the music to make me feel more connected to God than I have ever felt in my life.

    I hope my views don't offend anyone. I'm doing the best I can, moving forward, and with or without christianity, God is very much a part of my life.

  6. I don't even realize how loud it is until I pull through the gates of my company. Then, I wonder if everyone in line around me will think I'm out of my mind. Only then do I lower the volume.

  7. I actually lost the love of music for awhile. I read somewhere that 'soul death" occurs in some people, they forget to dance and to sing etc. I actually stopped singing! But these days, I am back to loving music. And praise music is just the thing for me!

  8. the more stressed I get the louder the hammered dulcimer music get as well.Hugs my friend.

  9. I love having praise music playing. I find that not only does it change my mood but it boast my faith as well.

  10. I do the same thing, allowing the praise of God to drowned out the world.

  11. I love to play my P&W music as loud as I can without breaking my speakers! lol It takes me into the presence of God almost instantly. WOW! Music is truly and amazing thing!

    My favorite worship song is "My Beloved" by Kari Jobe. If you would like to hear it, please go here: http://goosehillfarm.blogspot.com/2009/02/my-beloved.html


    Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.
    Serve the Lord with gladness;
    come before his presence with singing.
    Know ye that the Lord he is God;
    it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves;
    we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
    Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,
    and into his courts with praise;
    be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
    For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting;
    and his truth endureth to all generations.
    Psalm 100

  12. You are definitely not alone in this.

  13. No I think you are right, It can uplift your spirits or help you with your pain.

  14. Music, I think, comforts our souls.
