preperation for success

I couldn't Embed, but you can click THIS LINK
to see the video that goes with the lyrics.

Looked down from a broken sky
Traced out by the city lights
My world from a mile high
Best seat in the house tonight
Touched down on the cold black tile
Hold on for the sudden stop
Breath in the familiar shock
Of confusion and chaos
All those people going somewhere?
Why have I never cared?

Chorus:
Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me your love for humanity
Give me your arms for the broken hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach
Give me your heart for the once forgotten
yeah
yeah
yeah
yeah

Step out on a busy street
See a girl and our eyes meet
Does her best to smile at me
To hide whats underneath
Theres a man just to her right
Black suit and a bright red tie
Too ashamed to tell his wife
Hes out of work
Hes buying time
all those people going somewhere?
Why have I never cared?

Chorus

Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me your love for humanity
Give me your arms for the broken hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach
Give me your heart for the once forgotten
yeah
yeah
yeah
yeah

Ive Been there a million times
A couple of million eyes
just move and pass me by
I swear I never thought that I was wrong
Well I want a second glance
So give me a second chance
To see the way you see the people all alone

Chorus (x2)

Every time I hear this song I have this deep desire for every word he sings. I want to love people in a deep and impacting way. Now, the song isn't saying that all people are suffering from a deep and emotional block in their life......but many are, and all need Jesus. I want to be able to do my part to impact that need.

I have not been sleeping good lately. I have been go go go all time time. I am stressing out over this English paper, and I really don't even have a reason to do so. I have everything under control. I just get stressed up about stuff like this.I called the guy from my BSF today while I was in my car doing my bible study. He found a window, and wanted to pay half of the cost. Leaving me only to pay $25....I was blown away. Blown away, because he said he has wanted to do this for weeks.....God is good. I told him I would pay the $50 and he could put it in for free if he so desired. :-) That will take place on Thursday. I have to get a lot done tomorrow. A crap load really. AHHHHHH!!! Wait, wait. Deep breath, calm down. Think clearly, visualize, and pray. Okay, I got this. I will read the chapters for my OLS test tomorrow during the day. That means I will probably skip going to Snider for one day...but I just have to make priorities right now. on Thursday @ 12:30PM I will take the OLS test. Then all Thursday evening, all day Friday, and Friday evening, then all morning afternoon and night on Saturday as well as the same on Sunday I will finish up my Papers for English...which is due on Monday. I got this though. Most of it is finished, I just have to finish up the fine tuning, and add in all the scholarly sources. No prob, I got this.

But a little PRAYER never hurts. PLEASE PRAY FOR MY STUDIES.

I think I will bow at my bed tonight for prayer time, out of reverence.
