By CHARLIE MARTIN Sung by Mariah Carey As with any friendship, much depends on how CNS COLUMNIST i Copyright (c) 1993 by Sony much effort we give to the relationship God does Songs IncJ Rye Songs (BMI)/ not think less of us if we only turn to divine friend" l WB Music CorpJ Wallyworld ship during troubled times Yet, how real can this Music (ASCAP) relationship be if we never "take time for quiet and listen to God's voice within us? What will be the "Dear Lord: As always, I thank you so much for blessing me with the ability to re- alize my dreams." These words begin Mariah Carey's remarks on her "Music Box" cover sheet. Given that "Anytime You Need a Friend" is Ms. Carey's fourth hit off this disc, her words seem appropriately expressed. The combination of God-given talent and her own hard work places Ms. Carey among the best fe- male recording artists today. This cassingle's lyrics remind me what God might say to each of us. Surely, we all face times "when the shadows are closing in" and our spirits are "diminishing." It can feel like our troubles will "never end." We may wonder how we will make it through the discouragement and pain. Yet, softly, our God speaks to us: "If you just believe in me, I will love you endlessly; take my hand, take me into your heart .... I won't let go. I'll never let go." These words of promise can be realized in each depth of our friendship if we only rarely pause to thank God for the blessings given to us? Time is at a premium in human life. There are school and/or work responsibilities, personal in,r" ests, and connections with friends and family..l this is good Most of us enjoy the satisfaction tla grows from meaningful relationships and engaging activities. Because of time and energy constraints, all of us must reflect on our priorities Even if we don t set priorities, how we use our time and energY deter" mines what really counts in our lives. Take a good look at your life. How much time do you give to God? Do you allow God to be "by your side"?. pleaSe (Your comments are always welcome. _ .. address: Charlie Martin, RR 3, Box 182, 1oc port, IN 47635.)
