Every evening, Kip and I watch one [or four or five!] Gaither videos on You Tube. We started doing this a few weeks ago and it has truly had a positive impact on our hearts and minds before we head to bed.
Powerful performances from extremely gifted musicians [with genuine hearts] uplift the LORD in these videos, and HE is last on our minds before we go to sleep. And, when we wake up in the morning, praise through these songs begin our day.
We now set aside time for the news earlier in the evening and this change has positively enriched our lives, from dawn to day's end. I LOVE music, especially praise and worship music and hymns, but because of my disability [extreme sensitivity to noise being one major limitation] I have not been able to enjoy music the way I did before. This new discovery has personally opened an avenue of pure, sweet enjoyment because when the songs gear up [and many of them do], I can "gear down" ---with the remote. :-) This enables me to drink in the power and blessing of all kinds of favourite music, but my soul sings out on its own when the Lord is lifted up through powerful songs of worship.
I'm attaching a link to one of the videos we watched last night---twice. Michael English sings "I Bowed On My Knees" with such incredible passion, accompanied by incredible Gaither vocalists whose voices harmonize in ways that are far beyond words of adequate description.
We all experience difficulties on our life's journey, but one day we truly WILL bow before our Lord....and this song gives just a glimpse into the power of that beautiful moment.
I wish the gaithers & individual artists could know how much God uses their ministry. Actually, they likely do, but I am just so grateful for this new discovery of being blessed through music once again.
Enjoy the video and God Bless.
