Blind, Autistic Boy Sings "Open The Eyes Of My Heart"

On Sept 30th, 2011, Christians from all over New Hampshire were invited to their State Capitol to sing. Here is one boy singing "Open The Eyes Of My Heart."

Beautiful.



Yesterday I saw the movie "Incredibly Loud And Extremely Close" which is a story of a boy with some form of autism who lost his father on September 11th. I don't mean to use this site to advocate movies, but this was a good one.

Anyway, each of us need to "tune" the eyes of our heart today:

Eph. 1:18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,

The word "enlightened" in Greek is photizo - meaning to give light, shine, to give understanding, to illuminate.

God's glory is the "light" that needs to shine in our hearts. We can use "the eyes of our hearts" to photizo, or capture "photographs" of revelation of God's character and presence.

Num. 6:25 The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you;
119:130 The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple.
Is. 60:1 Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.
60:19 "The sun shall no longer be your light by day, Nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you; But the LORD will be to you an everlasting light, And your God your glory.
