One thing I do that helps me obey the command of Philippians 4:8 is play Christian music and purposely learn new songs. I find that turning to the familiar songs for comfort/encouragement works really well. But, the familiar songs often do not challenge me because it becomes easy to hear the words without really contemplating the message. I’ve discovered that one of the best ways for me to hear new songs which challenge me and help me worship comes through Worship Leader magazine. My other favorite way is asking people for their current favorite song or album. So, blog readers, do you have any suggestions for me?
