Eye to Eye

"I got my self a notion
One I know that you'll understand
To set the world in motion
By reaching out for each other's hand
Maybe we'll discover what we should have known all along
One way or another together's where we both belong

If we listen to each other's heart
We'll find we're never too far apart
And maybe love is the reason why
For the first time ever we're seeing it eye to eye"
Eye to Eye - Tevin Campbell
Some times it feels like we're too different—
Unalike in every way,
     and we don't speak the language
We create, feel, and express...
Everything is a world apart
     and yet  here we are, face to face...

If we could move past this barrier
See the human that exists
Beyond our unavoidable difference,
     and find a way to love what we are,
Who would stop us from gazing
     brown, blue, or green—
One eye to one eye?

And would we exist then
In some peaceful state of harmony
     discover beauty in each other's worlds—
Or continue our collision
Of thoughts and words,
     a consequence of our disconnect?

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
