Red Light, Green Light

DaGoddess @ 18:20

How do you deal with change? A friend and I have both been going through major changes in our lives (okay, mine’s been constant for the last five years). The thing is, I’ve turned myself inside out trying to find solutions. And then, when things were at their worst, I’d turn over the worry to God and He’d help me discover the answers to whatever I needed.

This made me think of the Jonny Lang song “Red Light”. Basically, do you spend these times of confusion all muddled and letting life slip past you? Or do you find a way to create your own green light? The path you choose may not be the one you anticipated recently, but it’s still a path. And the moments of “down time” when you’re dealt a hand that surprises you can be used to reflect, regroup, and begin the next leg of your journey.

Of course I sent this off to my friend.


You sing a song
While sitting at a red light
You think of home
While sitting at a red light

Too slow to roll
Put your life on hold
An open path
With nowhere to go
You start to wonder
While sitting at a red light

You can run a red light
Give up at a red light
You break the mold
When running through the tolls
Speeding through your whole life

A chance to breathe
While sitting at a red light
You look around
reflecting on your life

A chance to think
Am I drinkning too much
Should I keep going
Lose the life that I love
A second glance
When coming to a red light

You can run a red light
Give up at a red light
You break the mold
When running through the tolls
Speeding through your whole life

When things look low
You’ve gotta keep strong
Feet to the grass
You gotta walk it off
The bows been tied
Too tight to laugh
Feet to the ground
You’ve gotta walk it off

You can run a red light
You can run a red light

Start to think
Am I drinkning too much
Should I keep going
Lose the life that I love

You can run a red light
Give up at a red light
You break the mold
When running through the tolls
Speeding through your whole life

You can run a red light
Give up at a red light
You break the mold
When running through the tolls
Speeding through your whole life

You can run a red light
You can run a red light

You sing a song
While sitting at a red light

  1. Yep, yep, and yep.

    Lots of change and hard decisions in my future. Including some I don’t want to make and hoping I don’t have to.

  2. Is it bad that I immediately thought of playing “Red Light Green Light” at recess in elementary school?

    Jan, I thought the same thing.
