One of my favorite things to do each day is listen to contemporary Christian music. My favorite times to listen to this music are when I am driving in my vehicle, working out at Planet Fitness, doing yard work, or hanging out in the family room by myself late on a given night. The paragraphs below are from my manuscript, which will be published by the end of 2023 or sometime in the first half of 2024. The title of my work is I Went on A Retreat 365 Days in a Row! You can read the “Introduction,” “Prologue,” and “Summary” of my work at YourWillBeDone.Life. On the initial page, click on the “Retreat Book” tab in the upper right-hand corner. Prosit!
I have been listening to contemporary Christian music for approximately twenty years. Over this period of time, I have listened to many artists on K-Love radio (106.9 FM in the Philadelphia area), Star 99.1 (99.1 FM in the northern New Jersey area), YouTube.com, my Apple iPhone, and at concerts. If you have not listened to any or just a few contemporary Christian songs during your lifetime, I highly recommend that you take the time to listen to this genre of songs. If you start listening to them and you are not that interested, this is okay. Try listing to these songs again and give it another chance. Here is what you can do. I am not sure how this will go for you, but I do know that the people whom I have gotten to try this, their lives have been changed in positive ways for a variety of reasons. Choose one or more of the following when listening to contemporary Christian songs:
- One website is KLove.com. The FM affiliate for K-Love in the Philadelphia, PA area is 106.9 FM. This is the one that I listen to because I live just north of Philadelphia. It may be a different radio station in the area where you live.
- Another site is Star991.com. The FM affiliate for this station in the northern New Jersey area is 99.1 FM. I listen to this radio station often in my vehicle when I am driving. Check out the affiliate station that is near where you live.
- I have a subscription to Amazon Prime Plus. When I log into my account, I have access to a plethora of songs. I almost always listen to the contemporary Christian songs. I can listen to them on any technology device. I usually download songs onto my Apple iPhone and listen to them on my phone.
- If you are still into purchasing music on CDs, which I do occasionally, there are many contemporary Christian songs on the CDs that have “WOW” in their titles. Some of these many titles include “WOW Hits 2018,” “WOW #1s,” or “WOW Worship.” I purchase these and download them onto my laptop computer and my cellular phone.
- Visit YouTube.com. In the search box, type “best contemporary Christian songs.” Press “enter.” Stick in a pair of your favorite earbuds and listen to your heart’s content. Try this.
When listening to music, listen to just contemporary Christian music using one or more of the avenues I mentioned above. Try it. It cannot hurt. It may just make a positive difference in your life. Listening to this type of music for almost twenty years has changed my life in so many positive ways: learning about my faith, reaching out and helping others, making a positive difference in someone’s life, understanding more why Jesus Christ did what He did for each one of us when He lived here on Earth.
