Open my eyes,
That I may see
Glimpses of truth
Thou hast for me;
Place in my hands
The wonderful key,
That shall unclasp
And set me free.
Silently now I wait for Thee,
Ready, my God, Thy will to see;
Open my eyes, illumine me, Spirit divine!
Clara H. Scott
Psalm 119:18 says, "Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law."
I want to see what is around me. I want to see what God has created, in all of its intended glory and in all of its fallen-state sadness.
These students of mine are wonderful image-bearers. Albeit sinners. How can I help them to reach the glorious potential, the wonderful plan God has for each of them?
This world is filled with the down-trodden and oppressed. They, too, are image-bearers. How can I reach down and help them up? How can I fight the injustice under which they suffer?
This world is a beautiful depiction of God's creativity. Am I truly enjoying it as He wishes?
Oh, God, help me see!
Then help me DO!
