The bible has some good advice about music:
Ephesians 5:19 (NKJV)
speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord,
Paul repeats this again in Colossians 3:16. This is a good way to keep yourself in the right frame of mind.
As a worship leader, I try to pick songs that get people excited, then songs that give praise to God for who He is, and then end with songs that get people in a prayerful spirit. I am thankful there are so many from which I can choose.
Yes, I am thankful for music. Think how boring life would be if there were none!
All during the month of November, I will be sharing my gratitude for all God has given me. I'm joining Joyful Reader on her Giving Thanks Challenge at her blog, Encouragement for Daily Bible Reading.
