Every Monday I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay from the previous week. It’s the continuation of a weekly hobby that goes back 40+ years. Here’s this week’s chart:

BACK TO THE HITS – It’s been a long holiday break, but now it’s back to business. It’s back to the hits. My last chart was presented 4 weeks ago, but it kept on going offline. It’s been a music-intensive 4 weeks too – including 2,822 miles on the road listening to the radio – so my chart was very active. 6 of my current hits weren’t even on my last published chart.
WEARY TRAVELER – It was the instant theme song of my 18-day road-trip between South Florida and North Texas. I heard it more than any other song on the radio. Its lyrics made it a very relevant song while on the road away from home. I even preached about it yesterday as I led Communion. It entered my chart at # 10 on the weekend I departed for North Texas. Now it’s at # 3 as a strong follow-up to Jordan St. Cyr’s debut smash “Fires”. This one could very well reach # 1 soon. It could be my Christmas # 1.
PREVIOUS PEAKS – “Come What May” from We Are Messengers peaked at # 2 for 3 weeks in a row. “My God Is Still The Same” peaked at # 3 for a single week a couple of weeks ago. It’s Sanctus Real’s first non-# 1 smash following “Confidence” and “Unstoppable God”. “Promised Land” from TobyMac was at # 1 on my last published chart, but now it’s completely off the chart.
YEAR 37 – I published my very first hit music chart (via notebook paper, pen, and pencil) over in Gloucestershire England on November 30TH 1985. This is technically the start of the 37TH year of my chart – two hiatuses notwithstanding (1992-1995; 2010-2017). I actually contemplated creating my own personal hit music chart for about 8 years prior to doing so during the late-1970s and early-1980s when I followed Casey Kasem every Sunday and explored the Billboard Hot 100 at my local public library. It’s amazing to look back at my hobby over the past 40+ years and see how it’s evolved through the decades. It’s still fun to do, and now it’s God-centered.
