I Got My Eyes On You

Cokesbury Church

July 9, 2015

Touched down on the cold black top…

Hold on for the sudden stop.

Breathe in the familiar shock

Of confusion and chaos.

All those people going somewhere…

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 broken hearted

The ones that are far beyond my reach.

Give me your heart for the ones forgotten.

Give me your eyes so I can see

When we take time to stop and reflect on our lives, we discover if the choices we are making are turning us into the persons that God has called us to be.  Author Donald Miller in his book, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years, reflects upon his life story and the narrative his life was writing.  “And once you live a good story, you get a taste for meaning in life, and you can’t go back to being normal; you can’t go back to meaningless scenes stitched together by the forgettable thread of wasted time.”
