One of what I believe to be a truly great and classic rock and roll songs also contains a truly profound theological statement. The song is also one I refer to often when talking to people about prayer. That song is, of course the Rolling Stones “You Can’t always Get What You Want.”
 
You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes, well, you might find
You get what you need
 
This song came to mind as I was thinking about the second in our three-part series on Resilience in Troubled Times. Perhaps what we need to do is differentiate between what we want in troubled times (for the trouble to go away in the way we want it to) and what we need (trust that God provides what we need to survive the trouble). If you want to hear more about this, join us in the John McMillan Presbyterian Church parking lot, or online at Facebook Live at 10am, this Sunday when Pastor Jeff preaches, “Provision in Troubled Times”.
