give me your eyes (day 19)

 
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 

Ones that are far beyond my reach. 

Give me your heart for the ones forgotten 

Give me your eyes so I can see 

This needs to be my prayer. 

This is a lesson that I haven’t completely learned yet. 

I need to see others as the Lord sees them. 

19 till 40! 

you decide

 
Fiction and Reality collide
Faceless and so busted up inside
You’ve been searching you’ve been crying out,
Will you be destroyed by all your doubt 

You decide
Who will you run to
Wrong or right
There is no reason
For you to hide
Only love can change your life
Only love can change your life
You decide 

God is calling out to you again,
Let Him pull you, let Him take you in
From the fear that swallows up your life,
Will you stay the same or will you fight 

Every day you hold on to your lonely broken heart
It’s tearing you apart
God is calling out to you just let healing start
Will you open up and let Him in
