The other side of Barlow Girl – Never Alone

Weird Al has a talent for taking the popular and making it absurd(ly funny). My “talent” is for taking and seeing the other side of things. Consider Barlow Girl’s song “Never Alone”:

I waited for you today
But you didn’t show
No no no
I needed You today
So where did You go?
You told me to call
Said You’d be there
And though I haven’t seen You
Are You still there?
I cried out with no reply
And I can’t feel You by my side

I’ve been where she is, and it stinks, but I can’t help but wonder how many times that is God’s song to me. How many times does He call for me, and I don’t answer? How many times do I miss an opportunity He carefully crafted? How many times have I denied Him and not even realized it?

I wanna show up when He calls.
