Slow Fade…

The message in this song is so poignant in today’s society and it gives me chills every time I hear it.  Listen to the words….

Be careful little eyes what you see, it’s the second glance that ties your hands as darkness pulls the strings.  Be careful little feet where you go, for it’s the little feet behind you that are sure to follow.

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away.  It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray.  Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid when you give yourself away.  People never crumble in a day.  It’s a slow fade, it’s a slow fade.

Be careful little ears what you hear.  When flattery leads to compromise, the end is always near.  Be careful little lips what you say, for empty words and promises lead broken hearts astray.

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away.  It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray.  Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid when you give yourself away.  People never crumble in a day.  It’s a slow fade, it’s a slow fade.

The journey from your mind to your hands is shorter than you’re thinking.  Be careful if you think you stand.  You just might be sinking.

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away.  It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray.  Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid when you give yourself away.  People never crumble in a day.  It’s a slow fade, it’s a slow fade.

Oh be careful little eyes what you see.  Oh be careful little eyes what you see.  For the Father up above is looking down in love.  Oh be careful little eyes what you see.

Indifference…

I sometimes wonder if our Lord lets us experience indifference and rejection from those whom He has given us a heart to speak to and share His message so that we may intimately share in the sorrow and grief He felt when people rejected His ultimate offer – an offer He bought and paid for with His very life and blood.

It is so painful when you are on the outside looking in, knowing there is a better way – a perfect solution – but, despite your best efforts, it is seems to all be done in vain.  If you have experienced this, take heart in the fact that Word of the Lord does not return void!

Remember this as the Lord moves your heart to minister to those around you: “Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm.  Let nothing move you.  Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not vain” (1 Corinthians 15:58).

Blessings!
