1 Samuel 16:23
And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took an harp and played with his hand so Saul was refreshed and was well and the evil spirit departed from him.
Do you ever just wake up on the “wrong side of the bed”? I have had mornings where for some bizarre reason I woke up and just felt irritated. I wasn’t angry with anyone and I had no real understanding of why I felt the way I did I just knew I was irritated and all the coffee and chocolate in the world wasn’t going to make a difference. It was hard to read my Bible for my devotions and I was just not a pleasant person to be around. What do you do in circumstances like that? If you can’t put your finger on what is bothering you then how can you fix it?
May seem simplistic but you turn on some Praise and Worship music! There is something about praise and worship music that just soothes the soul and spirit. Just turn it on and soak it in until the uncomfortable ugly feeling goes away!
I have found if I am down, angry, frustrated or feeling any other negative feeling Praise and Worship music will just bring me to a whole other level of calm emotions. If you find yourself struggling in any area and just need comfort or encouragement before you even start to pray or have your devotions try turning on some praise and worship music to set your mind to be open to what God has in store for you today.
