NEW EYES     6/22/06
O True and Living God ~ in a miraculous, marvelous way, 
As we walk thru 
our uncertain concerns of this day and hour
with You leading the way ~
Something incredible takes place . . . 
From our very eyes falls our ‘sight’ 
The eyes we have held so dear  ~ 
our prized perspectives. . . 
I see them 
fall to the ground ~ we lose them
and we walk upon them ~
They are forever buried in the earth…
Never to be revived again!
Those weighted, deceptive eyes
have fallen…the burdens of our
own opinions, the lies we’ve been fed,
our prideful perceptions, producing false hopes
and emptiness…
How our vision clouded all we viewed . . .
But we are not left without the Truth!
For by the power of Your tender mercies
 and Your deep compassions for us,
The clarity of truth begins to form ~ 
Born of Your Spirit in our hearts
we cry out to You unceasingly, 
longing for the truth!
Yes, it is so true!
The truth shall set us free
No matter where that may lead us 
In God’s Kingdom!
Ah…truth…how I continue to see 
You in a brand new way 
And I find it impossible to describe the fresh love
I have for You and Your
unfathomable ways. . .
of transforming us from each ‘world’ we thought
we had obtained into Your open doors.
Gracious Father, 
sometimes tenderly, yet always zealously
You wash our eyes,
 removing all that competes for our attention.
This gift of the New Eyes…how very precious to behold
anew and ever anew, as though being 
born again…and again…and again.
This amazing gift of Yourself…to Your own is awe-inspiring!
To think that no matter what may befall us, we know
that You are truly within us and Your smile of love is upon us. . . 
You are a joy to our Blood-bought hearts!
Thank You, Father, for all You reveal to our new, fiery sight. . . 
And all you wisely conceal from our New Eyes
as well!
Lover of our ransomed souls ~ I love You beyond description!

About Donna

Praise the Lord! By His Grace I am His child and His servant. I can do nothing of and by myself for the Living God is the Great Producer, Director and Potter and it is by His grace that anything has been accomplished within me. I have four children and five grandsons and one granddaughter whom I love dearly. I am seeking to be a prepared Bride and to be a seeker, lover, worshipper, of the Living God. I seek to inspire others to come to the Lord and seek Him for truth and to hear from Him for themselves so as to follow hard after Him and all He has for them. These writings are meant to draw you to the Lover of your souls, so you too, can be prepared to please and satisfy Jesus Christ who paid the ultimate price for our redemption. Thereby, you will then enjoy Him here, glorify Him and belong to His Heart and meet with Him someday in the Heavenly Kingdom. The way is narrow that leads to LIFE, but the way is broad that leads to DESTRUCTION. I implore you to seek the Lord, to examine yourselves, to plead for His mercy to make you ready to be a prepared bride for Him, as you are His inheritance and His reward for His sufferings. Bless the Lord!
