Music is a Powerful Tool

Music is such a powerful tool and we can all think of at least one song that is near and dear to our heart.  Maybe it’s the song during your first dance as husband and wife or maybe it’s the song you sang with your grandmother growing up.  Whatever the memory, music can conjure up special feelings few others can.  Today I want to experiment with a new idea we have here at Paradigm Shift because we are always looking for ways that God can use us to help you, our readers and followers, come to know Jesus in the most intimate way possible.

Below you will find 5 different categories; Healing, Uplifting, Joyful/Upbeat/Inspirational, Worship, & The Cross/Salvation.  We went through and picked out a few songs that we thought best represented each category.  Obviously alot of these songs could be used in multiple categories as God speaks to each one of us differently in each song.  But I would encourage you to take what God is speaking to you through these songs and pray/meditate on it.  Worship God in those moments.

If this is something you like and find beneficial we would be more than happy to expand this list to numerous songs/videos or it’s very own section on the website.  Please feel free to leave any comments/suggestions below.
