Give Me Your Eyes

This song by Brandon Heath is my current favorite and I’m literally Praying it when I listen.  Here’s an excerpt:

Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me your love for humanity
Give me your arms for the brokenhearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach
Give me your heart for the one’s forgotten
Give me your eyes so I can see

So often I get caught up in myself–(and can become “discombobulated”!).  The only way out is to cling to something bigger than me.  God is definitely bigger than me.  This song starts out with a big picture look at the world —the familiar shock of confusion and chaos, all those people going somewhere, why have I never cared?

Why?  Because I don’t look at people through God’s eyes.  To see the insecurity, fear, pain–how would we treat people if we could look at them all the time through His eyes…

I noticed I keep switching pronouns–I/we.  It’s because I own this, this is me at times, but I know I’m not alone.

Lord, give us your eyes.

An Everlasting God

You know how you can hear the same thing over and over, and then one day…it becomes real?  Tonight during worship, we were singing about God being the Everlasting God.   I realized that all else fades away.  Everything I have here on this earth will dissappear.  None of it matters.  But God is Everlasting.   Everlasting!   The same tomorrow and in 100 years as He is today.

Ok, I’ve probably known this before, but it felt very real tonight.  Very true and very new.
