Challenged to Worship

    I make no apologies for listening to Christian Radio station CHVN 95.1 FM
    Not every song, every comment made by the DJ is my favourite.

    BUT, I am constantly challenged to worship the Lord Jesus through the song I'm hearing.  I'm constantly thinking, praying, challenging the words spoken by those doing the talking between songs. W

    When the CHVN has a fund raising day or 2 I am encouraged by the testimonies shared, by the ministry presented.  Sometimes! Not always....but I have been so encouraged in my walk with the Lord as I listen to ways that the Lord Jesus has wooed many to  follow him.  It gives me hope, causes me to pray.  To give.  

    I  have been reduced to tears often.  Words sung have challenged my current heart position or my thoughts at the time the song plays over the radio.  Usually its listening to the car radio. (yes, I seem to do a lot of driving!) God is so good.  He loves me so much.  He wants to challenge my mindset, my perspectives,my heart, my be His thoughts, His heart, His desires.

    "Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus....."Philippians 2:5
    "Create in me a pure heart, O God and renew a steadfast spirit within me."  Psalms 51:10

    And then there are the songs that call me to praise, to worship, to shout Hallelujah as I hear words that resonate with who Christ is in me.  Sometimes I sing, sometimes I raise my hands, sometimes I dance (but not while I'm driving) and sometimes I just listen in silence inviting the anointed words to wash over my mind, my soul & spirit.  

    "I delight greatly in the Lord: my soul rejoices in my God, For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness."  Isaiah 61:10

    The radio also has an off button when I am particularly annoyed with a song or a fund raising or happens.  I don't enjoy every aspect of everything presented.
    But over and over and over the Lord Jesus meets me where I am with the songs, with the scriptures, with the words spoken.....

    I love how the Lord Jesus uses music, inspired words, anointed worship to call me to Himself.  God is SO GOOD.
