Having God's Eye

I feel the pain and hurt of others
Some people are able to block it out
And worse turn away as if it doesn't exist
But it hurts me deep in my soul
knowing a child somewhere is being made hard
A little heart turned to stone cold ice
Because others are selfish and evil
A heart that may never warm
that may grow into the person
that hurt them once before

A belly full
Fully aware that a child hungry
Is eating crumbs from the floor somewhere

A heart full
Fully aware that a child cries
From the scares hidden deep down inside

A soul full
Fully aware that a child needs God
hope, support, love, and unconditional care

Imagine a world in which every person
Nurtured that responsibility
No darkness for children
Life is full of that on its own as an adult

Imagine a world in which it was all clear
That instead of being upside down
It was upside right
That no one had a blind eye
That no one blocked out
The truth of this life

Ephesians 5:7-14
7 Therefore do not be partners with them.
8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) 10 and find out what pleases the Lord. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. 14 This is why it is said:

“Wake up, sleeper,
    rise from the dead,
    and Christ will shine on you.”
