In the ministry of reconciliation we have been blessed to have man tools we can use to help us on our Christian walk in this world. We have prayer, reading God's word and meditating on it, counsel from other believers and music. I have found that music is the only thing that can clean and calm my troubled mind and spirit. I do enjoy all kinds of music and have found over the years that really have touched me in my faith. I wish to present some of the songs that helped me in my faith: It is well with my Soul- an old hymn that I enjoy in all the versions that I come across. He Reigns by the Newsboys - one of the most powerful new songs that I have heard in a while. Imagine Me by Kirk Franklin - Now Kirk Franklin has been bashed because of his hip-hop roots but I do like his message in his music. Slam by Carmon - Another singer songwriter who gets bashed because of his musical styles. When I first heard this song it really was God sent at the time. There is Power in the Blood - Another old hymn that is a reminder that I am a Christian because of the blood of Jesus that was shed for me. Break Every Chain by Tasha Cobbs -  A power song for those of us who deal the old nature every day. He Alive by Don Francisco - This song was so healing that I could not put words to it. Rise Again by Dallas Holms - Another song that was healing to me that I can not describe. I do believe that the style of music is less important than the healing it can bring. There are many other songs and music that I have found to be a blessing, this just a sample. Eph. 5:18-20 and Col. 3:15-17
