“You alone of all
You in the sky
I wanna know why clouds come in between you and I
Let me know you
Lover woo me
Open up my heart and sing your song right through me”
From You In The Sky by The Waterboys
This is one of many mystical songs written by Waterboys’ main man Mike Scott that I have used in a devotional way. I love using this song as a prayer. My current preaching series is attempting to ask what the Seven Enemies of Free Souls are. In this song Scott is asking a similar question; what gets in the way of the purest relationship with God we can have. The second part of the prayer follows on... to be able to sense God working through us. For Scott that is to sing for God. For others it might be many other things. The two go together. If we rid ourselves of the enemies to free souls we open up the soul for the full potential of God working through us. Preach it Mike! Amen!
