I had been sadly blinded
by my sinful misery,
listening to Life pass by;
Would I, be able to see

the Love that You had bestowed?
I’m stuck on this broken road;
restore my vision today,
as my purpose has been slowed.

I was like Bartimaeus,
waiting for Christ to find me;
unto Him, I cried and called;
He lovingly met my plea.

He greeted me where I was,
shunned by the neighborhood crowd;
transfixed, I stood before Him,
with my spirit, humbly bowed.

With gentleness He then spoke:
“Son, what’s your heart’s desire?”
When I quickly answered Him,
my spirit caught Faith’s fire!

Surprised, I rose to my feet,
as my sight was now restored;
astonished, with thanksgiving,
I embraced and praised… my Lord!

Today, I’m walking by Faith
even when I can’t see it;
traveling this broken road,
prepared Your great will for me.

Teach me Lord, Your Holy Writ
and to live with renewed Faith!
Knowing that Your Grace has flowed;
please lift me up, from my knees!

Love Is Taxing
broken roads are paved
with broken hearts...
and a love for the taxpayer's money
