Open My Eyes


As a worship leader, when my eye falls on a certain word, I think of a song.  The word, "see," immediately makes me think of the song, "Open My Eyes, Lord."  There is a line in that song that especially speaks to me, "I want to see Jesus."

Oh, seeing Jesus would be the ultimate.  I can think of no higher experience than looking into the eyes of the One that loved me so, and the One I adore above all else.

Unless the Lord grants me a special miracle, I won't see the face of Jesus until I step through the gates of Eternity.

But I can see Him THROUGH others, through those who have allowed Him to be their Lord and Savior.  His love shining out through them is a marvelous sight to behold.

I can see Him through the words of His love letter to me - the Bible.  The things I see there are so radical and life-changing I have to look at them again and again.

I can see Him through the beautiful world that the Trinity created together so long ago in the beginning. My favorite thing is to travel seeing the glories of nature.  I adore landscapes because what can be more beautiful than something created by the Master Artist?

One of my favorite ways to see Him is through the touching innocence of a newborn baby. It melts the heart.

Open my eyes, Lord.  I want to see you everywhere you are.
