Journal Prompt-What type of Music do You Listen to, and How Does it Make You Feel?

Journal Prompt for February 2023

What type of music do you enjoy listening to, and how does it make you feel?

I love music. I find myself singing along to various tunes, and you will often find me singing in harmony. I find joy in many types of music. I grew up on rock music and enjoy it to this day. I like county music and some jazz and classical. The music that I like most is Christian music. I have been a member of Praise and Worship teams in local churches. We would sing praise songs as well as Christian rock, which was my personal favorite. 

I guess Christian music is my favorite type of music because it literally saved my life. During the most challenging time in my life, when my husband abruptly left me, I wanted to give up because all of my dreams and goals were destroyed, and I could find no reason to move on. During this time, I would force myself to listen to a Christian Radio Station called K-Love. 

Listening to the music, I was able to keep going. In the lyrics, I found hope, joy, and the knowledge that God loves me and that He will never leave me or forsake me. Through the message in the music, I found strength and a reason to move forward.
