As I gaze at the magnificence of the Almighty,
I see only you because He sees only you.
As I lose my life before Him, He says,
Love My people.
But who are your people, Lord?
All that you see before you are My people…your people
I am not worthy to love like you love, My Lord
But He says, if you cannot love like I love, then all is lost.
So I stay still
I think upon the ones that cross my path
I ponder their pain, their joy, their struggles
My heart groans
Oh God! I cannot live with eyes wide open to see
He says, I cannot live without your eyes wide open
Yes, it hurts
But it heals
To see with love means taking in the pain, the joy, the worry, the person
I cannot bear it My Lord
Yes you can
But what about the abused, the abandoned, the lonely?
I heal them through your eyes
My eyes are tainted and blind
No, your eyes are My eyes
No, you cannot, but I have
I have seen all that needs to be seen,
I have suffered all that can be suffered,
But Lord, I haven’t…
Yes my sweet child, you have
No I haven’t
Look into My eyes, look deep into My love, live in Me
It is unbearable My Lord
No, it is bearable
It is your calling
It is too painful
There is no pain like My pain
Yes, it hurts
But it also heals
How does healing come from pain?
Pain is where the world stops and I begin
So where do I stop and start?
You stop with you and start with Me
I don’t understand
Yes, you do
No, I don’t
When the pain of others eclipses your own,
You have started
When the healing begins with others,
You are healed
This is difficult
My child, stop thinking and start trusting
Trust in what?
Trust in Me
But I can’t see You
You don’t have to see Me to trust Me
I’m lost and I don’t understand
Yes, you are lost but you do understand
