Eyes Wide Open

 

 

 

 

 

 

The world will feed me nonsense,

tell me quit or compromise,

convince me I am nothing,

beat me down with blatant lies.

 

Standards, what I should be,

what I could be, with their tricks.

But my life belongs to Jesus,

so I don’t need their measuring sticks.

 

God says I am marvelously made,

with purpose I’m created.

I’m loved, forgiven, highly favored.

It’s not that complicated.

 

It doesn’t matter what I have,

my status or my size.

I can leave the past behind me.

Renewed in Him, I rise.

“We were therefore buried with him through baptism

into death in order that, just as Christ was raised

from the dead through the glory of the Father,

we too may live a new life.” (Romans 6:1, NIV)

 

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation;

the old has gone, the new has come!” (2 Corinthians 5:17, NIV)
