Meditating With Music

Sunday School Basics … holler at the 90’s! 
“Father Abraham had many sons/ many sons had Father Abraham/ I am one of them and so are you, so let’s just praise the Lord..”

“Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world/ red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight/ Jesus loves the little children of the world!”

Were you able to sing along to these old school songs?
I remember growing up in Sunday School singing these songs, and I can STILL remember them AND the actions!

Music is a memorization tool!
MUSIC is one of the best TOOLS I’ve found to help me remember something, and I know I’m not the only one who has moments of forgetfulness… we’ve all asked someone their name only to forget it later and then we have to figure out some classy way for them to tell us again. The worst is when we are trying to be smooth asking them to spell it out for us and it ends up being obvious.
“How do you spell your name again?
“Bob? Well, it’s just like it sounds… B-O-B. Bob.”
“Ha! (embarrassed laugh…do I have enough time to make a joke out of this?) Right! Phonics wasn’t my best subject… (moving on)”

Haha! Whether it’s learning names, dates, history, facts, or things I just want to remember, making up a groovy rhyme and rhythm helps me remember it.

This is one of the many reasons why music is a big way I can connect with the Lord. Because of this, I wanted to share this groovy song with you guys! It’s stock full of Truth and has a sweet rhythm and melody. Love it! I learned some 7th chords from this song.
Enjoy and I pray it gets in your head and that the Truth infuses your brain!

About morgangascho

I grew up in Iowa, USA (famous for growing corn). I'm contemplative, I love writing, and blogging has become a hobby. Writing worship music is a way to engage in sweet conversation with the Divine Creator of the Universe, Jesus. He is my life. I am hidden in Him and I pray that someday I will know what that means. Until then, I'm seeking His glory, waiting for the day when it will all be revealed to me.
