That all changed ten years ago when I was born again of the Holy Spirit of God. I desperately wanted to listen to Christian radio at all times. My husband wouldn’t consider even short variances to his secular music stations. I prayed and prayed for that to change.
I started a habit of quickly changing the station if I was the first one in the car or if my husband stepped out to pump fuel. Sometimes it would take him awhile to catch on to the sweet melodious songs worshipping Jesus on the radio. He would get angry and quickly change the station, even in my own car.
I kept praying.
On several occasions, after he changed to his secular station, sweet Words of God played beautifully for us. There was no escape for him.
I had a favorite radio station, but could only play it around my husband when it was all music. A few years ago I came across a radio station with no commercials and that played mostly music, with just a tidbit of scripture and encouraging stories. My husband liked the station right away.
As time progressed, most of our listening in the car was this Christian radio station, and at home it was always the choice for music playing. Whenever my husband would be angry about something while we traveled, he would change the radio to his country western station, just to make a point that he was angry. This hadn’t happened in over a month when he became angry enough one day to change the station. After only about three minutes of listening to unending commercials, my husband grew angrier, changed back to the Christian radio station, and said there were no other good stations on the radio any more except for mine.
Praise God for His talented servants that bid His calling and write, compose and sing His beautiful music to inspire us. My friend’s husband was saved while listening to a Christian song on the radio. Music from God is powerful to soothe the soul and melt the stony heart.
Luke 15:25, 32
… as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing… It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.
