So often times we find that lyrics in that terribly catchy song you’ve been hearing on the radio are… well disgustingly evil, or downright stupid.
So try converting the music, or change the context, either the words or the focus of the song in your mind.
I find alot of the time if you just imagine God, everytime the person says “You” (which is very often in most songs regarding romance.) It makes the music alot more spiritual and meaningful to me.
I’ve done this with a disturbed song before and suddenly it became othodox lol.
An example: Sum 41 Hell song. * indicates changed word
Everybodies got their problems
Everybody says the same thing to you
Its just a matter how you solve them (prayer, perseverence)
and knowing how to change the things you’ve been though
I feel I’ve come to realize
how fast life can be compromised
Step back to see whats going on (make a holy hour)
I can’t believe this happened to You. (Death on the cross.)
Is this a problem that im faced with am I,
not the only one who hates to stand by?
Complications are the first in this line.
with all these pictures running through my mind (the gospels)
knowing endless consequences (Hell)
I feel so useless in this (sinners were we concieved)
Get back (satan) stand back (pray) and as for me I can* believe.
Part of me, won’t agree cause I don’t know if its for sure.
Suddenly, suddenly I don’t feel so insecure, anymore!
It’s not the whole song but you should get the picture.
youtube the song with this version in mind, all I did was change one word and gave you faith-filled things to think about instead of negative things. Its easy, convert the music! Post your faith-filled versions of popular songs, don’t be afraid of the genre, God is bigger than instruments or words!
