Love will set you Free: Love Messages in Music

images-1images-1

The great Stevie Wonder says it best himself, “Music is a World within itself, with a language we all understand”

There is such awesome power in music. It is powerful to see how lyrics and melodies translate over acoustic drums or instrumental strings. When the two forces of love lyrics and music combine it is a force to reckon with. Whether I’ve had a bad day, getting prepared to pray, or celebrate- music is always that one phenomenon factor that can and will take me to that place I desire to be.

Today I want to talk specifically about Love messages in Music. When I reflect on the word  LOVE, I automatically think of Christ’s unconditional Love for the world, and how he gave his life so that we might be forgiven, have everlasting life if we so choose, and live life abundantly. He is the source of Love and he commands all of us to operate, speak, and live in this same manner- LOVE.

Below I have chosen some of my top LOVE songs that I would like to share. I have also picked out my favorite lines in each. Each of these songs have served as great reminders about God’s Love, what Love can do when it is constantly practiced, and how LOVE can simply set you free. Set you free of all bondage, shame, bad attitudes and spirits, and much more. Most importantly it is the LOVE or lack of LOVE that drives our thinking and actions. I encourage you to make a playlist of some of your favorite love songs that will motivate you to live in love each and every day. I hope even some of my song selections can help you on this ever-evolving Love Journey.

LOVE SETS YOU FREE- Kelly Price & Friends

I opened up with my heart
There was no doubt
That hatred pulls you in
And love pulls you out
If you believe in faith you will never fall
Love will take you higher than any wall

LOVE- Kirk Franklin

The nights that i cry you love me
when i should have died you love me
I’ll never know why you love me
its a mystery to me now that i can finally see Jesus

LOVE- Musiq Soulchild

At first you didn’t mean that much to me
But now I know that you’re all I need
The world looks so brand new to me
Now that I found love

THIS LOVE- Mary Mary featuring Fred Hammond

When you say love
You use it so lightly
But when I think of it
This is what comes to me
Loving me, where I am
How I am
Just for who I am
All my good and bad
Sure you think
It’s not a possibility
Something so pure it changes me
When after all these years it’s still
The same
Just as strong as it was on the first day
