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.”
