This 1989 love-gone-bad ballad by Swedish pop duo Roxette appeared in my Facebook News Feed this morning, posted by a friend as “the little gift Pandora gave me this AM”. So I clicked the link and closed my eyes. Nothing. Opened my eyes… oh yeah, click ‘Play’. Closed my eyes again and stepped back in time. Listened a second and then a third time… magically and mysteriously… it turned into prayer.
Listen to your heart when he’s calling for you.
Listen to your heart… there’s nothing else you can do.
I don’t know where you’re going and I don’t know why.
Listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye.
It struck me that this song could be about me and God. Through the uncertainty and dark that I struggle to keep at bay these days, I am trying to listen for God’s voice in my heart. I don’t know where I’m going and I don’t know why things have happened like this. I don’t want to say goodbye to God… but there are moments… yes there are moments…
Let’s keep listening together… we have a fighting chance that way.
