What Makes Musical Ministry So Powerful

What makes musical ministry so powerful? Here are some interesting observations and encouraging words we received from a fan in Nebraska:
I have loved music since … well, for as long as I can remember. Like most audiophiles, my musical tastes are a little eclectic. I say this to come to this point:
A look can make someone stop and reconsider their immediate choice(s).
A touch can give someone reassurance to help get them through this problem.
A conversation can last for many a year and give someone a solid foundation to help them through,
But a song ... a song can reach deep down inside and touch someone so very deeply. It can change their entire perspective.
You may remember a conversation, and it may help you not give up, but you can't relive a conversation. A song can always be replayed. A song will always speak to you in the same way. A song elicits a very strong emotional response. Songs "speak" to people (pun intended).
I believe this is why David wrote so many Psalms and why God's word references the choirs in Heaven and music & instruments.
This is also why I think it is so great that your ministry is reaching so many people with God's message through music.
