The Eyes of Gratitude

God give me your eyes.
I want to see beauty.
That I might acknowledge blessing.
Yet I really want to see you.
In the middle of everything.
Even of pain. Struggle. Spiritual winter.
Your eyes see the lonely in the middle of busy.
Your eyes see hope knee deep in despair.
Your eyes see the whole person when others just see the broken.
I want eyes that capture the full future of a current foe that I might fully free a future friend.
Give me eyes to see my fear so I might step out in faith.
Give me your eyes, God.
I know you're great.
I believe you're good.
You're strong.
You're loving.
I see it.
