Inspirational Music A Divine Influence On The Mind And Soul

Inspirational Music should be words and music that impart a divine influence on the mind and soul. Music is a very important function of society and has the power of influencing the mind positively (righteous) or negatively (unrighteous). Unfortunately much of our society's music is emphasizing negative messages and sounds which will eventually lead a person to experience misery,death and destruction.

Inspirational music should not be just relegated to "religious" or sacred music it should even include secular music. To have peace in our lives all of the music we listen to should turn our hearts and mind to the Heavenly Father Yahweh (The Creator of all things)from which comes Love Joy and Peace.

In the Holy Scriptures it tells us in Phil 4:8- "...Whatever things are true, whatever thing are honest, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." This is the what inspirational music should be all about.

While living in Ghana West Africa I had the opportunity in 2003 and in 2005 to take part in a Pan African Festival called Panafest. This is a festival that is held once every 2 years. Musicians primarily of African descent on the continent and abroad come and perform as part of the main attractions of the festival. A Youth Day was set aside for one day during each festival. Those of us participating in the planning of the event knew the importance of Prov. 22:6-"Train up a child in the way he should go and, when he is old, he will not depart from it."So since this festival promoted artistic ventures our goal was to use the arts to positively influence the youth's minds. The criteria for youth performers was to create and perform (music,plays,poetry etc.) with positive inspiring messages. Inspirational music was an important part of what we did.

(Look for future opportunities on this web site for a chance as a youth or adult to share some of your inspirational music and works of art.)

In 2003 and 2005 I was asked to write and perform a song for Youth Day. My song was chosen both years I participated as the Youth Day theme song.

The song I wrote in 2005 was entitled "Let's Rise Again", which also was the title song of my music production "Let's Rise Again-ABABIO" held in 2008/09 Pittsburgh PA. In which I shared some of what I learned and experienced the ten years I lived in Ghana West Africa.



Let’s Rise Again

Verse 1:

As I walked down this dusty road

My mind flashed back in time

When Africa reigned supreme

And we all knew we were Divine

The glow of the light that shined from us

Showed the whole world the way to go

They came from far and wide

Down on their knees they came to bow

Verse 2:

Death destruction disease and poverty

Came through the door we left wide

open for our enemies

They brought us down to our knees

Crucified us and left us hanging from trees

We bore the sins and the ills of the whole world

Now it looks as if they’ve destroyed us finally

But we can’t blame them totally

For ourselves we must take total responsibility

Chorus

So remember that the power of our Creator

starts from within

Never think that they can help us solve

this mess we're in

Never lose hope our solutions cures begin

With the knowledge of who we are and

reconnecting with our Creator inside once again

Verse 3:

So don’t despair virgin mother Africa

Your children of Yahweh they shall rise again

So join our hands let’s love ourselves

Cause we all are fellow Africans

Let’s show the whole world that together

With Yahweh on our side we can rise again

So don’t be fooled by the illusions

As it was in the beginning so shall it be

In the end.

Go to Chorus And our world will be in heaven,

heaven, eternally.
