love-is-patient

When wells of love in me run dry,
and I no longer see
the cup of living water
kindness offers up to me,

When anger veils my tender view,
and shadows dim my soul,
When I feel cheated of my due,
and giving takes its toll,

When those around me seem to merit
naught but martyred sighs,
the answer is to look upon them
with our Savior’s eyes.

My vision, through a darkened glass,
is blurred by shades of pride.
His charity, if I but ask,
will light me up inside.

Compassion is a gift of grace,
born in humility.
May I seek Christ in every face
and find His love in me.
