Eyes to See

Dark clouds twirl as news of another shooting in this country hit my ears.

“What can be done, Lord,” my heart cries. “What is going on?!”

Man against man. What is it that creates such a deep, dark hatred for one breathing soul to want to take a life of another breathing soul.

In the beginning God created.

So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27

In his own image.

In his own image.

Created by God. Every human. Created in HIS image.

What are we doing, Lord?

What would you have me do, Lord?

May you give me eyes to see what you see in every living soul. The person you love. The hurt in the heart  – the heart you created. Help me to see . . .

The living at work.

The living at play.

The living at home.

The living when it isn’t pretty.

The living masking pain.

Amen. Give me eyes to see the living as you see and love, dear Lord.
