Eye Check Up

I looked and saw the failure of mankind.

I counted every trouble and mishap.

So focused on the problems, I despaired –

overcome with hopelessness and fear.

Then I looked to Jesus,

Who gave me eyes of love.

Where I saw failure, He showed me opportunity.

In every trouble, He revealed a ministry.

And as I faced the problems – the many, many problems –

He let me see through His lens of Truth

to see hope.

When I look through the eyes of Jesus, I look through eyes of love.

With that perspective, I can make a difference.

Jude 21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. 22 And of some have compassion, making a difference: 23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
