“But where do you go to my lovely, when you’re alone in your bed? Tell me the thoughts that surround you,
I want to look inside your head, yes I do”
Lines from the 1969 hit song by Peter Sarstedt, his lyrics made me wonder about where do we go in the night? To whom do we go? Or do we simply pull the duvet up over our head to deal with the dark; physically, mentally & spiritually? You see my reading of the bible is one that depicts a God who cares, who knows me, who protects & provides, (Jer 29:11) plus has a sense of humour? (Luke 12:7)
Yet how many of us, be honest, don’t draw on the promise bit? Matt 28:20? We somehow hope, in what I don’t know, leave it alone waiting for it to pass and subsequently go to our bed alone, alone with those thoughts, fears, anxieties etc.
My point is we put ourselves in the position of those who don’t believe, why? If we have a faith, attend a: church, fellowship groups, belong to the band, choir, then why don’t we, in the words of that old hymn by Helen Howarth Lemmel, ‘Turn our eyes toward Jesus’
My Thought for the week, suggestion to you reading this is give this a go? Know to whom you go and where? Become that you became when you first believed, having the same mind set, thoughts as he who made you, redeemed you, then the ‘wondering’ as summed up in the lyrics becomes the ‘Wonder’ of faith, belief, belonging yeah?
Then when we retire for the night and the words, ‘good night’ fall from our lips we know full well we will because in the words of Julian of Norwich; “All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.”
Something to think about yeah?
