Since I first started to listen to Christian music in 1984, I’ve come across several Christian rock groups. Like any phase in life, your current favorite is the best until another sound causes you to change your allegiance. As for me, Idle Cure from Long Beach California struck a cord with my soul in the 1980’s. This special connection influenced me to purchase all of their albums.
I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have any being. 34 May my meditation be sweet to Him; as for me, I will rejoice in the Lord, Psalm 104:33-34.
Today’s song accompanied me on many of my college road trips. Whether I was driving to a retreat or visiting a friend at another campus, Over Drive was one of my go to songs to pass the time. Since I’ve spent most of my life living on the East Coast, I’ve lived most of my life in overdrive, rarely stopping. Yet, like the song suggests, being a Christian inspires me to reach higher, by drawing closer to Jesus.
