Seeing with Eyes Closed…


Sometimes, you close your eyes
And lean all the way in…
Because having done all to stand
You STAND


Relinquishing every idea of control
Discarding every notion that you are in charge
You close your eyes…
So that maybe you can see
What secrets the eyes can’t see


You close your eyes
Because faith is the evidence of things not YET seen
You close your eyes
Because to stare at the facts may cause fear and panic
But to know and understand the truth of God’s love
Brings a peace that surpasses understanding


Peace? Now?
Yes!!! Because ALL things are STILL working together for my good
You close your eyes
And lean all the way back in
Inviting the Lord to take the drivers seat
“Jesus take the wheel”
I let go since…

Like Stan, I am careening quickly to a chasm

But for Your, intervention!


Sometimes, you close your eyes and lean way back in
Because you have learnt to trust
Trust that no part of your story
Is really about you
You were created for His glory
And He, is the Master Story Weaver
You trust and lean way back in
For what part does the clay play in determining what the Potter creates


Sometimes, you close your eyes
And know, that you know, that you know
That this too shall pass
And it doesn’t end until you WIN!
