"Open our eyes, Lord, we want to see Jesus, to reach out and trust Him and say that we love Him. Open our ears, Lord, and help us to listen, Open our eyes, Lord, we want to see Jesus."
Robert Cull 1949-
Can't you just hear the yearning in the first line of this hymn. So often I close my eyes to Jesus and travel down the path of my own choosing. I walk blindly, destined for heartache and trouble. Why is it I so easily forget to open my eyes and look to my Heavenly Father? I can trust Him. I need to trust Him. He has my best interests at heart. But, I am so quick to gather up my affairs and strike out on my own. Ignoring the love and care He has for me. I don't want to let my heart, meditations and yearnings to get clouded by despair and depression. I need to open my eyes. He is right there before me with His arms open wide.
Thank you Jesus for loving me as you do. I so often wander away from you, trying to take control of each and every situation. You lovingly wait for me to come back. And when I do you fold me in your arms, surrounding me with your love, peace and comfort.
