Look. What do you see?
A pile of dishes filling the sink.
The clothes that need folding.
The floors that need cleaning.

Look. What do you see?
The red line in the budget.
The followers in your stream.
The chaos in the street.

Look. What do you see?
Beauty abound.
Joy unspeakable.
Hopes fulfilled.

Look. What do you see?
The goodness in creation.
The wonders of life.
The grace of God.

Too often we see things from below,
but as a daughter of the King, I can rise up,
and look with Him from above.

It’s my choice.

    So poetic! I need the reminder to look away from the dirty parts and instead see the beauty of life.

    Awesome! The messes of life far too often make me miss the beauty around me. The difficult times make us miss the blessings we are receiving. Great perspective!
