Open Up My Eyes

Lately I have been listening to Hillsong United during my runs because most of their songs are high energy and upbeat. But there is this one song on my playlist that is quite the opposite. Every time it plays, tears sting my eyes and my lungs begin to burn, as the sidewalk becomes a place where my heart cries out to God.

The song is called “Hosanna” and you can view the full lyrics here and listen to it here. This is the part that gets me…

Heal my heart and make it clean

Open up my eyes to the things unseen

Show me how to love like you have loved me

Break my heart for what breaks yours

Everything I am for your kingdom’s cause

As I walk from earth to eternity

So this is my prayer for this week, and I encourage you to make it yours.

I pray that this week we will see the beauty and the frailty of all that surrounds us, and that we will spill over with grace and unconditional love, giving freely as we have been given.

Always,

Amanda
