I love worship. I'm emotional, so music has always been something that has reached me. I can choose what mood I want to get in by what music I listen to. Before I knew Christ I would get depressed and play songs like Johnny Cash, "Hurt" or Blue October "Hate Me". Boy that would really get me into the best depressed mode an I would sink further and deeper into depression. I don't do that anymore... now I hit Praise FM, K-Love, Bethel, Jesus Culture, Pandora Christian...there are so many artists and so many scripture being spoken and truth being prayed over us that it's impossible not to find strength, peace, love, joy and worship from them.
A few weeks ago, I recall listening to Praise FM sharing that Jeremy Camp had wrote a book about looking his first wife to cancer. At the time, I thought how sad. But it stuck in my spirit, and I couldn't get over the goosebumps I would get and the emotions I would feel when I would hear "Same Power". A couple weeks ago, they found some things on some medical tests they ran. It was pure accident they were found, I hadn't had any reason to go in, except I thought I had a kidney infection. But instead, many tests later, I found myself drawing on the worship of this song. I love how God connects us through our testimonies. I love how the same power is available for each of us, and that through it was are diversely united. Not an oxymoron, but the overwhelming nature of God.
We can sure decide what we are going to invest our thoughts in. It is purely a decision, a choice, regardless of the situation, we can choose to be overcome, or we can choose to overcome because we have Christ living in us. What a miracle it is to have the revelation that no matter what the problem is, the answer is Christ.
