It Vacation Bible School again. Most parents that have kids in VBS can tell you that the songs the kid’s songs during VBS can get caught in your head for decades. I remember working last year and had Robert one of the media techs at the church start to pull up old songs from previous VBS and we start to do the motions to the songs since most of us worked the years he was playing. Lifeway has been the proven choice when it comes to VBS material that will stick with the kids. What does the Bible say about what we listen to?
The Bible tells us to….
The Bible is real clear on this subject because He knows that our brain is wired to remember things that are not good for us. For example, I can name a country song and you probably know the laics to the song. “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under” by Shania Twain. Forgive me for getting that song stuck in the head.
One of the main verses that come to mind is James 1:22 tells us “But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.” If we are just hearing him how are we continue to just read His word and not act on it that will not grow His Kingdom. I sometimes get in the habit myself saying that not my job, In fact, it all of our jobs.
Then in Hebrews 3:15 keeps reminding us saying “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” If your heart is hard how can He show you what he wants you to do. Or lead you in the right direction. His voice will be the small voice that will be heard like a pin dropping. Lisen and He will guide you.
When you read Philippians 4:6-7 He tells us “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” I love how He tells us what do when we are in these situations then also what to protect the heart and mind. One way to protect both of these includes shows we watch, movies we see and music we listen to. Guarding all these organs for him will always help us focus on what is important in for Him to work through us. What do you have on the mind as we speak? Is it his word or the last thing you saw last night. What ways do you protect your mind and heart?
As you go through today keep in mind what is going in the ears and eyes can affect the rest of the body in what He wants. Ask Him what He wants you to be watching and listening to and never forget why you are here for.
I have included a link to a sample of the VBS songs for the week if you like to lessen to them. Click here for the link.
Thank you all for the big support. I still can not believe that we had over 1,000 views in less than 3 months. I am currently looking for a person that would help with paying for the stock footage I use on the site. This commitment is a small one but I am willing to give a daily shot out or if you have a business I would mention it every time during the month you provided for the stock photos. If you are wanting to help send me a message here with your email and I will respond back to you. I currently looking for a $40 a month commitment. That provides clips from 123rf.com where I gain access to most pictures that do not have me in them. Thank you in advance if you are interested. Below I have included two past blogs to help you through your journey today.
Have a blessed day,
