The Eyes of God
Soul Snack 181/12 ... The Eyes of God
You see the wickedness of each heart,
You feel the weakness of each soul,
You love each and every wilted spirit,
yet You still know the best in each of us.
The whipped back,
The fallen body,
The clouded mind,
You refuse to despise.
Your very measure of man is love,
Your eyes gaze through love-tinted glasses,
Your heart for man is untramelled friendship,
Your only invitation to man is Jesus.
O Lord help me to apprehend the abyss of my indulgences, the dreams of my heart and the pursuits of my spirit that remain hidden from my eyes that we may remove them together - for to lose them is to see me how you see me. Amen
I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind... (Jer 17:9a)
