Give Me Your Eyes

This is one of my favorite songs. It really speaks my heart and I'm sure many other people's out there. Check out the lyrics:

Give Me Your Eyes by Brandon Heath
Looked down from a broken sky
Traced out by the city lights
My world from a mile high
Best seat in the house tonight

Touched down on the cold black tar
Hold on for the sudden stop
Breathe in the familiar shock
Of confusion and chaos

All those people going somewhere
Why have I never cared?

Chorus:
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 one's forgotten
Give me Your eyes so I can see

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Step out on a busy street
See a girl and our eyes meet
Does her best to smile at me
To hide what's underneath

There's a man just to her right
Black suit and a bright red tie
Too ashamed to tell his wife
He's out of work, he's buying time

All those people going somewhere
Why have I never cared?

Chorus x1

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I've been there a million times
A couple of million eyes just moving past me by
I swear I never thought that I was wrong

Well, I want a second glance
So give me a second chance
To see the way You see the people all alone

chorus x1
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah x8

I think that song is something all followers of Christ should think about. I know every time I hear that song I am convicted because so many times I judge people not really knowing what they are going through and not really wanting to view them from God's eyes. I'm trying to be better about that, and the Lord is helping me through it.

Together we can change the world. I can't change you and you can't change me all we can do is change ourselves. You would be surprised that your example might be the "make or break" for somebody. People like to follow what they see and if they see us doing things just like the rest of the world then they will follow thinking it's okay. Let's try and be the best example we can be. To follow in the steps of our Lord Jesus Christ. Hope you all have a blessed weekend!!

  1. Often you hear Christian say people need to repent and nations need to repent and churches need to repent and on and on and on...

    Repentance starts with one individual at a time and before I can be a Christ like example to others it must start with me on a daily basis in The Word of God and at the foot of the Cross.
