Open my eyes…


I’ve spent my whole life

Trying so hard to be good.

Struggling with all my might

To be how a Christian should.


But the enemy is powerful

And he always seems to win.

I keep believing all his lies

While he laughs at me and grins.


And then I question God

Where is he and why doesn’t he care?

If he’s letting all this happen to me

Is he really even there?


Why God must I continue

To face more suffering and pain?

All this misery and despair

Is only causing me to go insane.


Is there something I’m doing wrong?

Open my eyes and make me see.

Because clearly I’m a broken mess

Who desperately needs to be set free.

  5. I’ve been there. Just remember that the enemy is already defeated 2000 years ago on the cross. All he can do is try to deceive you into thinking otherwise. Remember that whatever you may be going through, (sins, struggles, vices, weaknesses). The word of the Lord in 2 Corinthians 12:9 says,
    [But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.] The LORD bless you.
