I was blind, but now I see (Woke)

I was blind

I say again I was blind

But now I see.

 

I lived in a world were…

We would see the front cover

But never the whole story

Only getting half of the truth

 

When I met you everything changed

I listened to your story

As you spoke, I felt your pain

And my heart for a moment

Broke with yours.

 

How could they? How can someone

Do that? Why would they? A

Million questions raised in my mind.

 

My heart boiled with hatred

Against them, my heart burning

For justice. I try to make sense of it

But it has no sense, it just insanity.

 

All I could give this perfect stranger

Was words of comfort, love

And hope

 

Love that was not mine

Hope from all high

I gave her the Love of Christ

I gave her greater hope

In a better tomorrow

I gave what I had,

I gave her Christ.

 

I was blind

But now I see.

[When I think of what happened to this person I think of the countless women who are abused or raped, its time for Christians, the world and individuals to stand up, or what’s right.]

 

Matthew 11: 28-30

 

28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

 

Whomever has been through the most in life, people around you may never understand the pain you’re going through, but God is there, He is there to take the weight of your shoulder and help you overcome. The world we live in is not a perfect world we live in because of sin. There is a saying that says “hurting people, hurt people”.
