Hollow Eyes

Petra blazed a trail…offended many, loved by many; in fact, as time evolved people who used to love them hated them, and visa versa.

Say what you will, they wrote and performed some incredible songs.

“Hollow Eyes” came out in 1984.

I thought of the song as I saw some hollow eyes when I stopped for coffee this morning.

Hopeless and helpless.

I said “hi” to the guy; he ignored me.

I shot up a prayer for him as he walked out the door.

And thought of “hollow eyes” displaying hollow hearts…the hole that only Jesus and the gospel can fill.

And freshly recommitted to seizing the opportunities to “brag on Jesus.”

Join me?

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
