My Eyes Are On You, Lord!!

I Don’t Want To Gain The Whole World…

And Lose My Soul


For whosoever will save his life shall lose it;

but whosoever shall lose his life for My sake and the Gospel’s,

the same shall save it.

For what shall it profit a man,

if he shall gain the whole world,

and lose his own soul?” 

Mark 8:35-36

What will you gain???

If you lose your soul? 

Have we lost our souls while gaining the whole world?

Don’t want to walk away…

Not going to let material things get in my way…

I’m trying to get somewhere…

That’s real and pure and true and eternal!

Father God…

I am clay in Your hands…

Help me to stay that way through all life’s demands…

‘Cause they chip, and they nag, and they pull at me…

And every little thing I make up my mind to be…

The road that is wide and filled with self-love…

Everything that I see draws me…

Though it’s only in You that I can truly see…

That it’s a feast for the eyes…

A low blow to purpose…

And I’m a little kid at a three-ring circus!

Who I am…

Is not what I do…

But, where’s my heart?

The first thing to prosper…

Should be the inside of me.

We’re free!!

Christ came!

Now we’re changed!

Not the same…

Even though I made a fall…

Since I got that call…

No more Saul…

Now I’m Paul.!

 I sense the tide that’s rising…

De-sensitizing me from living in light of eternity…

It’s hypnotizing me from living in light of eternity…

Lord, what we can we do?

We’re relying on you…

All eyes are on you, Lord!

 All eyes are on you, Jesus!

Don’t let me lose my soul…

This is my honesty…

Father, won’t You cover me?

Lord forgive us…

When we get consumed by the things of this world…

That fight for our love…

And our passion…

As our eyes are open wide…

And on You…

Grant us the privilege of Your world view…

And may Your kingdom be…

What wakes us up…

And lays us down!

Amen!!

Lord, I could sing of your Love forever!!
