Hollow Eyes

A few years ago I had a dream to take a group of teenagers down to Central and South America.  I even met with a missionary from the country I was looking at taking this group to.  I had begun gathering information and resources to learn enough of the language for the youth to be able to communicate somewhat.  This was something I really wanted to do…

Last night I was driving in my car to Randy’s house.  I was listening to a CD I have not listened to in years.  The CD was by Petra and the song Hollow Eyes.  While listening to this song I began to recall the dream and the plans that went unfulfilled. 

Although, some 10 to 15 of these teens did go overseas to several countries over the course of 2 summers.  They traveled to Russia, South Africa, West Africa, Kenya, India, China, and Haiti.  Others went to the states of Maryland and Nebraska as well as the city of Los Angeles.

These teens answered the call to “Go into all of the world…”

Today I’m challenged – challenged at the faith and the commitment to do something totally radical that goes against our human nature.  I’m challenged to look into those “Hollow Eyes”.

The least of these is hungry.  The least of these is sick.  The least of these needs clothing.  The least of these needs drink.  The least of these knows sorrow.  The least of these knows grief.  The least of these has suffered pain and Jesus is His name.

Do you dare to gaze into His hollow eyes?

What’s His call for you?
