This  is a word from Pastor Timothy Burdick, Minister of Abilities for Friday Study Ministries:

I found this Scripture in Luke comforting and want to share it with you through poetry. If you are like me in dark times, you often donít know it, but Jesus is right there with you.

"Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. They asked each other, "Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?" (Luke 24:31-32)

"Please Open Up My Eyes, Lord"
By Pastor Timothy Burdick

Open up my eyes, Lord, and let me know you're there.
For often as I walk lifeís road I confront despair.
And as we talk while traveling,
Grief hides the precious nail prints in Your hands
And the spear that tore Your side.
I donít recognize Your face but You listen to my pain,
And then unexpectedly, you show up on lifeís lane.
Just like a loving parent, You try to let me know,
how to allocate your strength, but many times Iím slow.
For like a child waking up my vision is still blurred,
And I donít behold you clearly though my heart is stirred.
Please open up my eyes Lord for I will seek your face,
For you have overcome and are the victor in the race.
