Happy Sunday! And happy coffee with Annie! What’s good?
On this particular topic I would be discussing today, I have had quite some worries and have tried to get as much knowledge on it. One time at a bible study in church, we discussed on this topic, and I could see people just trying to share their opinions and even questions about what their views on music were, secular music per say, and it was quite nice.
So many questions like, should I be listening to this kind of music? Am I meant to listen to just gospel music? Are questions I’ve asked myself before. It’s a topic with a whole lot of views, I tell you.
One thing I have learnt, I would say, is that you shouldn’t just base your judgement on what a person says. One of the first things we should always remember is that God is our purpose of being here, and we are to serve him. So, you considered what he feel about it?
Ask Him in prayers if he feels okay about the songs you listen to or if there are some songs that do not please him. Earnestly pray for him to answer you and see if you can connect with what he says.
Through God’s word, you can also have an insight on the kinds of things that please Him.
The second most important thing is asking yourself too. I have heard people talk about how the songs you listen to don’t affect your relationship with God, and you’re very free to do whatever you want. But deep down, even when I want to believe them, I still feel there’s a limitation. And that’s just me.
So ask and see through yourself. Do you really feel comfortable with that song? People are different, and so are their relationships with God. Where someone says God tells him to stop, he could tell you to keep going.
If you’re caught in a web about not hearing God or not knowing what you actually feel about the songs you listen to. The lyrics should be your third option and answer.
Sometimes we listen to songs because we like the beats or just how soothing they can be. But have you ever consciously listened to the lyrics of your songs? Or even googled if you’re not sure? Try to know their interpretations.
I believe there are spirits behind every song (not evil spirits, lol). But you certainly get some feelings when you listen to some particular songs. So we’ve got to take extra care.
- The gods of some singers could not be the same as yours, so don’t be surprised if their morals and thoughts aren’t the same.
- As much as we love some of these artistes, do not idolize them, cos we all human.
I hope this post was able to shed some more light on the topic? Feel free to comment your thoughts and more topics you would like to see on Sunday Coffee With Annie, #SCWA. See ya!
