When You Are Down – Part 2

When I got emotionally down during our separation and did not seem to have energy or hope for much of anything, one thing I learned was that if I put on Scripture-based worship music, in awhile my mood would improve. Also, any worship music that lifted up the name of Jesus helped very much.

I think the reason that worship based on the Word of God is so effective is, “For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12 NIV) Scripture changes our hearts and attitudes. It makes a difference in our spirits and souls.

Lots of nights I fell asleep listening to worship. Some of my favorite artists at the time were John G. Elliott and Twila Paris. I also enjoy Chris Tomlin, Jesus Culture, Natalie Grant, Misty Edwards, Passion Band and many others. Music is such a personal thing. I encourage you to search until you find some that speaks deeply to your soul and spirit.
