Look Into My Eyes

 Look into my eyes…What do you see

lookintomyeyes

Take a moment and think about where I come from

All that I’ve been taught since I was a little girl

Everything that I’ve known to be “truth”

 

Differences keep most from welcoming me

Could  you look beyond my outside appearance

To reach my heart tucked away inside

 

Judgement often finds me

For few take the time to see the real me

The me that I must hide deep inside

 

Freedom is not part of my life

I’m chained to what I know

I often wonder if there is real freedom out there though?

 

This post was written as part of Compassion Blog Month.

As Compassion bloggers we are working to get 3,160 children sponsored before the end of September.

Would you pray about touching the life of a child today?

We are blessed to sponsor a little girl, Marjorie in Peru. It is such a blessing to our lives to have a little girl to pray for, write and encourage to seek the Lord.

If you decide to sponsor a child, simply click the image below to start changing a child’s life!

    Yes, sadly, freedom is not part of this beautiful girl’s culture. Holy Spirit, please intervene, even right now.
