I found inspiration for a short piece of poetry when I spent some personal reflection time in the Pauline epistles, especially 1 and 2 Corinthians. The words of Paul are directly quoting the Scriptures, specifically Isaiah’s prophecy. I was inspired, so I wrote freely and I share it here now with all others.
Eyes Have Not Seen
There is something that eyes have not seen.
The truth is that many don’t have eyes to see my change.
They do not recognize it.
They do not realize it.
Their eyes are not open to seeing my change.
I’m still who I used to be to them.
I can only be who I used to be in their eyes.
Even though their eyes have not seen,
I know what they see.
I just don’t know why.
I feel that God wants more out of me.
I believe He just doesn’t want me saved.
He wants me to say it and show it.
He wants me to say that I’ve changed
And He wants me to show that I have changed.
If they can’t see it, at least some will hear it.
Some may not see it, but God will work on them.
Their eyes just have not seen yet.
