Lord I’m Twisted

On the flight home from Chicago to Sacramento on Sunday, I was listening to my iPod when the song Twisted, by Colt Ford came on. I have listened to this song more times than I can remember, but this time I actually heard the lyrics and it was profound how it related to what I have been mulling about in my own mind recently.

Lord, I’m twisted, I feel the stress that’s hangin’ on me,
And all this pain in my family – they all depend on me.
Lord, I’m twisted, I feel the stress that’s hangin’ on me,

If I should wait or should I go, I just don’t know
