When I look at people, life, the Church,
Through the eyes of how I know & understand Christ, God, the Holy Spirit
Then I see beauty & life
I see things differently
I ’spose because I’ve seen a lot of terrible things
Many of these things I would rather never see again
In fact I contend with God to only see these things because of Him
Because of these things people are different to me
People, all people, even you, and even the guy trashed from the party
And even, the guy who reeks of alcohol and body odor in the “free rail zone”
They all have a warm spot in my heart, even the people who have caused the deepest hurt
This is all true, not because it’s some warm fuzzy ideal
But because it’s exactly what my God has given me, time and time again
This grace, so amazing, so unchanging, so undeserved, this is what floods my soul
When my soul is flooded, and my heart is filled, I can only be drawn to the souls of all.
