You ever wake up with a song on your mind? Or a song just keeps going over and over in your head… and you don’t seem to know why…

Well, for the past couple of days, I have woken with this song from Larry Norman, I Wish We’d All Been Ready in my head…

Can’t seem to shake it…

It’s a song I learned in my youth, at church… we’d sing it around the campfire when the youth group would go camping…

The words seem to be speaking to me…

I think about all that is happening in the world right now… wars, rumors of wars, famine, fires, droughts, weird weather patterns, tornadoes where there we’re no tornadoes before… earthquakes where no earthquakes have happened before…

It makes a person think… and wonder about life after death… and, if you believe the Bible to be true, just how soon will the Lord return…?

Perhaps the “Man Upstairs” is trying to get my attention… to ‘wake me up…’

I’ve shared the lyrics below, but you can give it a listen, or buy Larrys’ album Only Visiting The Planet here…

I Wish We’d All Been Ready (By Larry Norman)

(Verse) Life was filled with guns and wars, and all of us got trampled on the floor. I wish we’d all been ready.

The Children died, the days grew cold, a piece of bread could buy a bag of gold. I wish we’d all been ready.

(Chorus) There’s no time to change your mind, The Son has come and you’ve been left behind.

(Verse) A man and wife asleep in bed, she hears a noise and turns her head he’s gone. I wish we’d all been ready.

Two men walking up a hill, one disappears and one’s left standing still. I wish we’d all been ready.

(Chorus) The Father spoke, the demons dined. How could you have been so blind?

There’s no time to change your mind. The Son has come and you’ve been left behind.

I hope we’ll all be ready.

You’ve been left behind.

You’ve been left behind.

You’ve been left behind.

As I once again wake with this song in my mind, and consider everything that is going on in this ‘topsy-turvy world, I too, hope we will all be ready.

Have you ever heard the song before? If not, give it a listen and tell me what you think.

Until next time,

Peace, love and safe travels.
