Open the eyes of my heart,
Open the eyes of my heart Lord.
I want to see you.
When I saw the prompt word of Open that was what came to my mind right away. And as my mind drifted around the words that make up the song I wondered how many people truly mean it when they sing those words.
Do we really want God to open up our eyes or do we like living in our bubble where we don’t see the hurt and pain that surrounds us?
There is pain in the world and most days I just live my life without a care in the world.
I am so blessed and do not have to worry about my next meal, having a warm place to stay or anything like that, but I know there are people who do.
But I don’t see them and even when I do I normally just drive right by.
A few weeks back I saw a lady on the side of the road with a tent and thought she probably needs food. I was going to the grocery store and thought I will buy her some groceries and bring them to her.
No, as I was unloading the car at my house I remembered my thought of helping her. Even with open I eyes I still forget.
So I have come up with a new plan. I have been thinking about buying a few gift cards for grocery stores or restaurants so I can have something readily available when I see someone in need, but each time I am at the check out my mind wanders and I forget. I loose my focus and end up unloading my groceries and saying next time I won’t forget.
We live in a lost and hurting world do we really want to see it?
