Rainy days & Mondays

I have 2 minutes to lights out but I just wanted to squeeze in a quick one. 

I got in early tonight so I was lying on a bench outside, looking at the stars, and this song came into my head. And I thought, how apt, as it does happen to be a Monday and it was drizzling a bit. 

But as I thought about it more, I realised how it reads like a song about my life before coming here and falling deeper in love with Jesus. 

Talkin’ to myself and feelin’ old
Sometimes I’d like to quit
Nothin’ ever seems to fit
Hangin’ around
Nothin’ to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

What I’ve got they used to call the blues
Nothin’ is really wrong
Feelin’ like I don’t belong
Walkin’ around
Some kind of lonely clown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

Funny, but it seems I always wind up here with you
Nice to know somebody loves me
Funny, but it seems that it’s the only thing to do
Run and find the one who loves me

What I feel has come and gone before
No need to talk it out
We know what it’s all about
Hangin’ around
Nothin’ to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

So much of what it says describes exactly who I was – always down for no reason, finding myself back with Jesus but then also looking everywhere for someone to love me. 

Something has really changed. I’m sure I’ll have those days again, as she says, days that have come and gone before, but I hope I will never forget that when I run to find the one to love me, that person I’m running to is Jesus. That person my heart is aching for is my God.
