Would You?

Snow Patrol

     These are lyrics to one of my favorite songs, ''Chasing Cars'' by Snow Patrol.  I think its a song about feeling all alone and wanting just one person to care.  It makes me think of alzheimer's patients and their loved one just lying next to them and holding them in their hospital bed.  I don't know of such a display of love by man greater than this.  We don't have to wait for a sick, bed-ridden moment to show someone that we can do without our routines and let go of the noise of the world for a while.  How?  A walk together without ipods, a day off from work and not working on any to-do list, prayer time together or whatever you can think of.  Like the song title says, we are often just chasing cars in our lives with no quiet time.  The world will not stop for you but you can stop your world from spinning out of control.  Hit the pause button, every once in a while.
     No matter whether you feel alone or not, you can take comfort that Jesus is right beside you. He is our Comforter and Counselor above all else.  He cares more than anyone about you and the struggles you face.
