You are connected to the type of music that you are able to draw hope from, for some reason.

Words, rhythm/beat, the way it hits your mind and heart, when you hear the song, versus someone else.

But you can begin to have other types of music, christian, to inspire you, entertain you, and educate you.

Make sense?

Christian music paints a picture in my mind of people smiling, holding hands, extremely happy running through a flower garden.


Rock,Metal paints a picture in my mind of the ups ,downs, highs and lows of everyday life.

I guess it depends on what musical artist you are listening to. My favorite is Ka-Je Projek. Strong beats, strong "everyday life" messages and is better than any music I hear at the gym when I exercise.

I dont no about you but nothing gives me more hope than Jesus, i dont no what kinds of songs u listen to but when i hear songs talking about how God loved us enough to give his only begotten son , or how he placed the stars in the sky and he knows them by name and how amazing my God is it gives me hope that lil wayne, luke bryant, etc cant give me

Simply put, Non Christian music just gives me more hope than Christian music, i wonder why?

Just listen to this song and give me your opinions
YouTube - ‪Killswitch Engage - Element Of One (Live)‬&r
My Guess Is you have been listening to the wrong Christian songs for you. You are born again aren't you? If not that is the PROBLEM. Just in case, born again is when you surrender all control to Jesus as MASTER, which is what LORD means. We do that because we LOVE HIM. That LOVE for GOD is part of the Free Gift of Faith that we receive from the Holy Spirit.

Romans 5:5 (HCSB)
[SUP]5 [/SUP] This hope will not disappoint ⌊us⌋, because God’s love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

I surrendered to Jesus Christ, weeping and crying over my utterly sinful lifestyle begging for forgiveness and willingly giving HIM complete control of my life, after a third attempt at suicide, the last week of December 1977. HE has been doing a WONDERFUL job of running my life, and filling me with JOY, way more days than not.

Now let me share a few songs with you that just make my HEART SOAR WITH JOY.
