It’s a good morning

I woke up at 5 and decided I was not going to get out of bed just yet. Thankfully, I drifted off to sleep again. I was feeling tired before the day began so I knew it was not time to get up.

The daily schedule is so loose. And I am a person who needs deadlines to get motivated. External accountability is one of those things that is important to me. And, believe it or not, the right kind of music can be very motivating.

Take a listen to this song by Chris Rice

God tends to me while I sleep and greets me for the day. It’s a good morning. It’s going to be a good day.

Music often sets my mood so it is important for me to make sure what is running in the background is encouraging and uplifting, especially now. That might look like hymns to you but, for me, it is music with a message and a bit of a beat.

What’s on your playlist?

Let’s pray for all of the musicians who are trying to figure out how to connect with their audiences! And if you know of fun, uplifting music, share it wherever you do social media!

PrayerPoints is typically a Lenten project and a chronicle of God working on my heart and mind. It is always a process. God is always teaching me! I am American born with Hungarian blood. I make plenty of mistakes but I am forgiven. Each day is an adventure.

One thought on “It’s a good morning”

  1. Surprisingly I do listen to music when the time is right, I am after all Hearing Impaired. so to listen I need to be driving my pick up truck, or when the occasional neighbors (they are rarely here) are not up here. the volume is turned up, I don’t want to intrude on the quiet. I listen to a wide variety of music, but to get inspiration I do listen to some country artists, Josh Turner’s “Long Black Train” is a favorite, and I hope this isn’t too much of a shock Kenny Rogers’ “The Gambler”. Listening to the radio is only possible when driving, the reception is very poor otherwise. There is a Christian music station I can get and KTNN from Window Rock Arizona, during holidays they have great music themed for that specific holiday. KTNN transmits in English and Navajo, so I get to listen and learn! I am amazed and humbled by the devotion from The Navajo Nation, they are some of the poorest citizens in this country, their circumstances would lead anyone they would be depressed mentally, but their devotion to God is so impressive! Well here you have it, music listened to by a member of the Hearing Impaired community, and living away from the complexities of urban life. Does music help? Yes,but so does listening to the quiet, wind through the trees, birds singing, with hearing aids of course. Stay well dear friend, this pandemic is a real eye opener.
