What God Sees

 

on one side grief

on the other glory

it’s all the same gutter

with only our Redeemer

to lift us from the grime

 

glory and grief lay intertwined

God’s mercy knows no limit

our darkest night

His shining glory

the very jaws of defeat

His greatest victory

 

there is no power can stop

His relentless love

it finds us where we are

meets us in our need

our only choices

 

“Yes,

I will stand upon Your Word”

 

or

 

“No,

I will stand on my own”

 

glory or grief

stand at the meeting

of His love with our need

 

“What God sees

in the depravity of man

is a mystery to me

His love and grace endure forever!”

 

Will sent an email from his daughter,

seeing glory and grief in Africa.

Life will break our hearts.

Only He can heal them.
