give me eyes to see the pain


For the last few days I’ve had two songs playing over and over on my laptop/ipod and when I’m not listening, it’s likely the words are running through my head.

So, since I’m on a blogging roll but don’t have the energy to SAY much tonight, I thought I’d share one.

To the desperate eyes and reaching hands
To the suffering and the lean
To the ones the world has cast aside
Where you want me I will be

I will go, I will go
I will go, Lord send me
To the world, To the lost
To the poor and hungry
Take everything I am
I’m clay within your hands
I will go, I will go, send me

Let me not be blind with privilege
Give me eyes to see the pain
Let the blessing You’ve poured out on me
Not be spent on me in vain
Let this life be used for change

I wanna live for you

Go where you lead me
I wanna follow you

(I Will Go – Starfield)

In other news: I’m reading a book that is destroying me (in a… gosh there is so much EVIL in the world and my heart is breaking – sort of way). I’ll tell you about it later. For now, I’m just going to keep reading, keep being destroyed, and keep PRAYING the words to this song:

Give me eyes to see the pain
Let the blessing You’ve poured out on me
Not be spent on me in vain
Let this life be used for change
