Sing to Him a new song; Play skillfully with a shout of joy. Psalm 33:3
A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:22
I listen to Christian radio a lot, particularly WVCY and KLove. You can actually download a free song from iTunes on KLove’s website here. And, when I’m on the computer, I’m listening to Pandora. Listening to Christian inspirational songs and uplifting, joyful music, helps get me through the day with a joyful spirit. Singing praises to God and having a joyful heart is directly related to our spiritual and even physical health.
And, the great thing about radio and music today is that most of it is free to listen to. You may have to wait for your favorite song to come on, but while you’re waiting, you can enjoy similar songs when you’re listening to Pandora. Pandora is a website that offers free custom radio stations. You simply sign up for an account and start selecting your musical preferences. You can create multiple radio stations from a musical genre, artist, or song . For example, I have a radio station that plays all Contemporary Christian music. I also have one that only plays songs similar to “Captivate Us.” My husband has a radio station that plays smooth jazz while he’s working at home. It helps keep him calm when he’s working on a challenging project. We love Pandora.

Another way to listen to music for free is by searching for songs on YouTube and GodTube. It is also a great place to discover new artists and songs. I just recently uploaded a couple songs my husband recorded a few years ago. Here are a few of my favorite Christian songs on YouTube and GodTube…
