Eyes That Once Saw God

You once saw him, so now your eyes are weaving a great net of tenderness that will one day, one day capture God. 

          We once were one with infinite love, divine grace, and selfless character. It is our destiny to return to these things. But how can we challenge ourselves to live as closely as possible to His ways on earth? Probably by regarding others as more important than ourselves, acting with humility of mind, endless love, compassion, and unity.
           I love this song by Ellie Holcomb, "The Broken Beautiful". I find it upbeat, like a modern pop hit, but with a strong spiritual message.

Would You remind me now of who You are?
That Your love will never change,
that there's healing in your name
That You can take broken things,
and make them beautiful
You took my shame
And You walked out of the grave
So Your love can take broken things
and make them beautiful

The Broken Beautiful (2014), Ellie Holcomb
