“Are You Gonna Go My Way” by Lenny Kravitz
(click here to listen)

I was born long ago
I am the chosen I’m the one
I have come to save the day
And I won’t leave until I’m done
So that’s why you’ve got to try
You got to breath and have some fun
Though I’m not paid I play this game
And I won’t stop until I’m done
But what I really want to know is
Are you gonna go my way?
And I got to got to know
I don’t know why we always cry
This we must leave and get undone
We must engage and rearrange
And turn this planet back to one

So tell me why we got to die
And kill each other one by one
We’ve got to love and rub-a-dub
We’ve got to dance and be in love
But what I really want to know is
Are you gonna go my way?
And I got to got to know
Are you gonna go my way?
‘Cause baby I got to know

This song honours “stones in the road” as blessings, because they jar one out of the somnambulant shuffle by which many move through life. The ‘stones’ are certainly annoyances, and we would not choose to have them, but they are unacknowledged gifts that provide the stimuli to change, to evolve, to grow; or in the words of the song, they shine “like diamonds in the dust” as a a voice calling to us “to make our way back home.” In Jesus’ mouth, the lyrics mark a path to life in the kingdom as they force us to examine our lives, and repent.
