Then Sings My Soul Saturday - Open My Eyes by Brandon Heath

Please don't forget to turn off my blog music before playing the video. I should also mention this week is a bit serious. There have been some things happening in my life that have me buckling down into the work God has for me.

I am passionate about the battle against human trafficking. God has asked me to be a "modern day abolitionist" and I've found it's generally foolish to be disobedient to God...so I have been pouring myself into this horror for about 5 years now.

This song, every time I hear it, asking God to give me eyes to see the people around me, reminds me we are all loved and wanted the same by the God who created us. It also reminds me we live in a fallen, sinful world and we are not to forget those who are weak and vulnerable, those who are exploited and used, those who need help.


If you are interested in hearing more about human trafficking, don't hesitate to ask. There is a recent post on my blog about it, too.

Don't forget to visit Amy at Signs, Miracles and Wonders for more Then Sings My Soul Saturday songs.

Have a blessed Saturday!

Thanks for that song. How true. I need to have Jesus' eyes to see broken hearts & to be His hands extended to a lost & dying world. My song this week was Open the eyes of my heart Lord. I think he is really trying to tell me something.
