Day 338: When God made me, Neil Young

Although I keep up to date with my Covid Island Disc blog, I am way behind on my summary videos for each week. When recording the summary video for week 20, the artist I focussed on was Neil Young. In 2005 Neil Young had a near brush with death after a successful operation for a brain aneurysm two days later caused a bleed from his femoral artery.

This experience led him to write this very beautiful song where Young asks several questions about God’s intentions for making him. I particularly like the searching verse which I think, as one get’s older, is echoed by many of us whether we are Christians, other faiths or no faith at all:

Was he planning only for believers?
Or for those who just had faith?
Did he envision all wars that were fought in his name?
Did he say there was only one way to be close to him?
When God made me
When God made me

God bless him!
