In your eyes, I may appear as nothing much,
But in the eyes of God, Iím just enough
To be used for His glory, His purpose, and His will;
For, He created me so that His will may be fulfilled.
In your eyes, you may see me as a liar and a cheat,
But in the eyes of God, Iím a piece that makes His puzzle complete;
For, He created me with His will and purpose in mind,
And my purpose for being will be seen in Godís own time.
In your eyes, I may be as low as dirt,
But in the eyes of God, Iím the perfect tool for His work;
For, He created me to work faithfully in His vineyard
To help others see that work must be done even when times get hard.
In your eyes, I may be of no good use,
But in the eyes of God, Iím a strong vessel able to withstand much abuse,
Which is why He positions me to be talked about, put down, and criticized;
For, through these burdens, He will use me to open your eyes
To see that He created me with emotional strength
To teach others how to accept criticism and resentment.
In your eyes, I may appear dumb, and stupid too,
But, in Godís eyes, Iím perfect to teach you
How to look beyond faults to see the needs of those you meet,
And a helping hand from you is what is needed to make their lives complete.
In your eyes, I may be ugly, which makes you treat me cold;
But in the eyes of God, Iím a thing of beauty that will help save your soul;
For, Iím to show you that beauty comes from deep within,
And the most unattractive person can prove to be a great friend.
In your eyes, I may appear as your enemy working against your prosperity,
But in the eyes of God, Iím only a force to push you into victory;
For, Satan is working to make you give up what God has for you.
But, those that appear as enemies are used to strengthen you as you go through.
In yours eyes, it may appear as if the enemy is winning on every side,
But in the eyes of God, your struggles and battles are used as a guide,
Leading you into the path of righteousness each day,
Helping you to stay on the straight and narrow way;
For, God needs you to remain close,
And there are times that you need trials and troubles most,
Keeping you faithful and strong in prayer
So that God can continuously show that Heís there
To keep, guide and protect you
Regardless of what you may be going through.
In your eyes, you only see the outer view of whatís going on,
But in Godís eyes, all situations and circumstances are used to keep you strong.
