This is random??

One of my going away gifts when leaving the church was a brand spanking new I-pod with MEGA capacity.  I've been gradually updating it with all of my Cd's (yes, I am still old school and like Cd's.  Deal with it.).  I am a self-confessing, not ashamed, Amy Grant fan.  That means that in my CD collection there tend to be multiple songs due to "Greatest Hits" and "Live" versions of songs.  It is awesome.

Anyway, when in the car, the I-pod setting through the radio is set on random/shuffle (which means it will choose any song on my I-pod to play, just in case you were confused).  A few weeks ago I noticed that this so called "random" feature was doing something interesting.  For 9 songs straight, it would play an Amy Grant song, a Holly Williams song and another female artist that I can't think of right now.  It was a strange occurrence, especially seeing as how I only have one Holly William CD as opposed to multiple Amy Grant Cd's.  The strangeness did not end there.

A few days later, on random/shuffle, an Amy Grant song came on.  I sang along, as usual.  The next song came on and I found myself staring at the radio display, a little stupefied.  IT WAS THE SAME EXACT SONG!!  Only the live version.  I thought to myself "that's just weird."  Little did I know.  Today, it happened AGAIN!  The SAME SONG AS BEFORE!!

Now, I can handle this strange occurrence happening once.  Twice...I'm thinking that someone is trying to get my attention.

All Right--Amy Grant
Looking out to the hills to the setting sun
I feel a cold wind bound to come
Another change another end I cannot see
But your faithfulness to me is making it

All right
I fall down on my knees tell me that it's all right
You give me what I need
Years of knocking on heaven's door
Have taught me this if nothing more
That it's all right, what may come

I've heard it said when the river's running high
You get to higher ground or you die
Well muddy waves of pain washed over me
And it only made me see it's gonna be


When will I learn there are no guarantees
What strengthens hope, my eyes have never seen
But it won't be long
Till the faith will be sight and the heavens will say
It's all right

I love that song. I had forgotten what a great album Lead Me On was until I re-bought the digital version before my last AG concert. I loved it in high school, but i relate to it so much more 20 years later...
