There has been different
times when I have
and the world differently.
But now I see through your eyes, Father,
For a while I saw myself always being
a black sheep, dirty and unclean.
I saw the world that was close to me
all white and pristine.
Then as time passed I saw
myself wanting to please those others around me
with my own good, and their good.
I saw the world around me trying to make their good
change the world that only
created in me, and in them, a sense of falsehood.
Then one day I heard His truth. I saw
Jesus Christ my Lord for real,
and He gave me my True sight.
What I saw at first gave me
an overwhelming fright.
I saw all evil and good in me, but
what I saw in Him
made my spirit contrite.
I saw He was the only Holy and perfect
Human God had ever formed that came from Him
that He had made.
It was His love that gave me the will
to give up all of me so I would never be afraid.
I began seeing what He saw,
all good and evil no one could change.
The perfect He could only be, and the evil
He could only exchange.
That day I saw He was the plan and purpose
God gave humankind,
because they were all formed from dust, black, and born blind.
I then began seeing His purpose in
Me, and what he wanted in the world around me.
I am seeing clearly now His truth and His plan,
so others like me, if they are willing, can be His fishers of men.
Mark 1:17-18 “Come follow me,” Jesus said, “I will make you fishers of men.” At once they left their nets and followed him.
