Open My Eyes, That I May See

Hymn #395 in Celebrating Grace Hymnal — “Open My Eyes, That I May See”

[pullquote_center width=”55%”]Silently now I wait for thee,
Ready, my God, thy will to see;
Open my heart, illumine me, Spirit divine![/pullquote_center]

Wait.         Wait.         Wait.

How hard is that for you? For me, and for most of us, waiting is nigh to impossible. While waiting for no discernible reason is infuriating, we are not even very good at waiting for reasons we comprehend and support.

But our impatience is not just annoying to those around us. It can cheat us of the reward of hearing—really hearing—what someone has to say. Wait to see what God has to say; it may not be spoken on your time, but on God’s. Be silent; be expectant. Don’t miss the message because of your impatience.

Wait.             Wait.                        Wait.
