Sing

If you can’t control what you think, you’ll never control how you feel.  And if you can’t control what you feel, you won’t be able to control what you do. Anxiety is a feeling rooted in your thought life.  What your mind thinks affects your feelings.  That is why anxious thoughts will produce anxiety.  It’s that simple. Consequently, to change how you feel, you need to change how you think.  Romans 12:2 says you are transformed by the renewal of your mind.  Conquering worry begins by controlling what you are thinking. Another weapon you can use to control your thoughts and produce healthy emotions is to sing your thoughts.  Fill your mind with positive songs and encouraging words, especially from God’s Word, and sing them.  Repeatedly.  Make this an ongoing habit. Music is a universal language.  There are not many people who don’t know the splendor and majesty of a song well sung and a score well done.  Music moves the heart like nothing else.  In fact, secular studies show 20 minutes of live singing with other people can make you feel significantly better and increase wellness.  It can improve your emotional health and help you overcome despair.  Anyone who has been to a fun, lively concert knows how true this is. Some experts say that a positive mood change can occur within two weeks when you sing songs daily that have a positive message.  Think of your favorite worship songs.  Sing along while you play them, over and over again.  Your singing will stimulate faith-filled thoughts, which will in turn produce good feelings that can assist you in overcoming the paralysis caused by anxiety. Music communicates a message that reaches deep into the human heart unlike anything else.  It stirs emotions and feelings.  Singing worship songs declares the power and presence of Jesus in your life as you “take every thought captive” (2 Corinthians 10:5).  Feeling anxious about the coronavirus?  Sing.  Worrying about your finances?  Sing.  Becoming weary while social distancing?  Sing. Sing your anxieties away.  God’s got this!
