What are we listening to?

Did you know that music is so influential and powerful that it is used as therapy? Consider this excerpt from the American Music Therapy Association at musictherapy.org:
Music Therapy is an established healthcare profession that uses music to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals of all ages.  Music therapy improves the quality of life for persons who are well and meets the needs of children and adults with disabilities or illnesses.  Music therapy interventions can be designed to:
  • promote wellness
  • manage stress
  • alleviate pain
  • express feelings
  • enhance memory
  • improve communication
  • Promote physical rehabilitation.
Did you know that music could do all of that?

Music can assist us in entering the presence of the Lord. It can prepare us for prayer and meditation. It can help us to praise Him.
We can be encouraged, joyful, and worshipful!
What are you listening to, today?

I've been listening to the group Selah a lot lately. This song particularly sticks in my head.
