Caught in Your Eyes

I love the song “Caught in Your Eyes” by Josh Baldwin

I.…I settled for second best.
Settled for emptiness…I settled for lies.
But You…You took apart my chest.
Filled it with holiness…You filled it with life.

Your love is taking.
Th pieces breaking.
From my heart and making them one

I’m caught in Your eyes.…Caught in Your eyes.
Captured and won, coming undone.
Living to die.
Caught in Your eyes…Caught in Your eyes.
Lost in the chase, caught by Your grace.
Given new life…Caught in Your eyes.

You.…You stepped in my hollow heart.
You came to light my dark and open my eyes.
I am wanting much more of You.
Wanting to love You too.
And wanting to fly. |

Prayer For Transformation

God, make Yourself real to me. Transform my life in a mighty way. Change me from who I am today, and make me into who You desire for me to be. I am not perfect. I mess up all of the time. Even though You do not like for me to disobey, You still love me unconditionally. Your love never fails me. Your love is perfect and pure. I can always count on you to be there for me. Even when I let go of your hand, You never let go of mine; Your hand stills holds tight. Thank You for Your love!

Let us know; let us press on to know the Lord;
his going out is sure as the dawn;
he will come to us as the showers,
as the spring rains that water the earth.
-Hosea 6:3

God, Chisel Me

In our daily lives, we go through so much pain and struggle.  Through trials and tribulation, we forget how important we are to God, and we forget how much God loves us.  We put on the weight of the world more and more each day.  We let the what others say and think about us define who we are.  We neglect to remember who we realy are–who God MADE us to be.

“Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” -Matthew11:29

REMEMBER: You ARE God’s original masterpeice.

“When God chisels the dead weight out of our lives it can be very painful.” -The Skit Guys

Parking? on Campus?

On August 5, 2009, Gary Caton told (see video below) Channel 9 that Parking and Transportation Services supply a sufficient number of parking spaces for students.

However, on August 16, 2010, the Parking Services posted an article titled “It’s Going to be Tight, Parking Reality Check“.  The article says “Hundreds and hundreds of spaces were added and so were that many new students. Do the math.”  If I do the math…

X spots in 2009 + hundreds of new spots = x+hundreds

and… X students in 2009 + hundreds of new students = x+hundreds

so… the new students are able to park in the new spots.  So what? There are still not enough spots on campus for students to park; the initial problem still exists.

The good news is that they are adding a deck near the new EPIC building that will accommodate 1300 vehicles.  The bad news is that the deck will not be finished until 2012.  Between now and 2012, hundreds of new students will be attending UNCC.

They are also building other new decks and lots, but at the same time the are removing other lots in order to build building in those places.  It seems that they are swimming upstream and not thinking about the future.  There are students that have to arrive on campus an hour or more before there class so that they can use that hour to drive around and around to try and find a spot.  That hour could be a lot more useful if they could use in to study instead of having to literally hunt for a parking spot for an hour.

Parking Services does offer remote lots off of campus, but you still have to arrive early at those lots and then wait for a shuttle to come pick you up.

What is your view?
