white noise – noun
1. Also called white sound. a steady, unvarying, unobtrusive sound, as an electronically produced drone or the sound of rain, used to mask or obliterate unwanted sounds.
so I was driving the other day and heard a song on KPNO (the radio), what I did (almost instantly) when I heard it was change the channel to KLOVE . I might add both of which are great stations – I normally listen to KPNO because I have a good friend that manages the station…. ANYWAY…. what struck me at the moment when I was turning the station was that the song that I was turning from was and is a good song. It is theologically sound, and I know, brings Glory to God every time it is played, but why did I feel the urge to turn the station??? What I sensed in that moment was a realization of what I am going to call “white noise worship”. I get very in my rut of Christian music, websites, blogs, friends, people that I start to hear it as white noise and I don’t hear the Worship anymore. I don’t offer my life in spirit and truth it is more out of preformance that I walk through life or worse yet…. playing church / christianity.
Lord, help me to recognize when my life starts to sound like white noise, I need your help in recognizing this.
