Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale 4.24.2018 ♥

Wild man’s world is crying in pain
What you gonna do when everybody’s insane
So afraid of fortune, so afraid of you
What you gonna do?
Crazy on you, let me go crazy on you
I was willow last night in my dream
I bent down over a clear running stream
I sang you the song that i heard up above
And you keep me alive with your sweet flowing love
Crazy, crazy on you,
Let me go crazy, crazy on you🎶

In 1976 on an album I bought with my meager allowance from Columbia House, I met the woman I was going to Marry (when I grew up) Ann Wilson! Well 42 years later that never happened🙄. “Crazy on you” is a song of the heart (Pardon the pun). It’s about the kind of commitment and single mindedness that builds relationships and keeps them. Its a song about sweet flowing love. A love song in essence, with romantic overtones. For Heart in 1976 it was a hit! Heart have often been described as the “female Led Zeppelin,” as much for their arena ready hard rock riffs as for singer Ann Wilson’s powerful, Robert Plant like vocal histrionics. But the thing about Heart for me, that most closely resembles the mighty Zeppelin is their ability to shift effortlessly between bombastic rock and roll and the most delicate folk based music. Both sides of Heart are displayed in full glory on “Crazy on You,” It’s a masterpiece. “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.” Yeshua/Jesus made the point that Our Father is concerned about our hearts, our inward motivation. That is the place where He looks. He is concerned for the inward and moral rather than the outward and ceremonial (Mark 7:1-23). He wants us to have pure hearts. The word for pure means unmixed, unadulterated, unalloyed, like pure clean water. In a world where the pressure to conform is very great, it means to be free from masks and free from having different roles for different occasions. It means being ourselves as YeHoVaH/God intended, instead of play acting, living life in the open and letting people see right through us. The pure in heart are those who are completely sincere in their relationships. They are those who are totally open and have nothing to hide. A bit like in the Heart song “Crazy on you” Amen?
