Eyes That See Things Differently – Poetry

December 2, 2016

The wonder of a sweet, sweet heart
Is there for God to see
You think you’ve got it all messed up
But I’ve got news for thee

All the little things you do
The ways that your heart cares
Does not go without a nod from God
Please know that He’s aware

We focus on the screw-ups
And think that’s all there is
God does not see us that way
Especially when we are His

He sees us as His children
His love will not depart
As long as we stay close to Him
He will reveal His heart

God sees things so differently
Than we see things ourselves
He looks with love upon us
We’re never on the shelf

He actively awaits us
To turn our thoughts to Him
To come into His presence
So He can help us win

He takes such joy in watching
Our journey on the earth
I guarantee that you are more
Than what you think you’re worth

It’s times we focus on Him
And try to do His will
That shines like light before Him
We can continue still

So if you’ve royally blown it
Like I’ve done time and again
Don’t let that keep you from Him
Just start your walk again

Come into His presence
As you lie upon your bed
Start the conversation
Read the words He’s said

Know that God, He loves you
Like you’ve never been loved before
Let your sins be washed away
He’s waiting at the door

How simple is  “I’m sorry”
To come between your lips
Then you can start the dance again
Your past it will eclipse

You are loved more than I can say
Dare to make amends
Dare to believe what I have said
Come to Him again
