T H R O U G H – H I S – E Y E S

Recently, I discovered Britt Nicole’s new song “Through His Eyes”. Not only does the beat make you push the repeat button, but the lyrics are beautifully honest. Here’s a sneak peek:

Get it together, That’s what I say me , I put on the pressure

You could do better, Be who your supposed to be

But that’s when you came in, Right when I needed you

You said all of the things that I was believing , Not one of them were true

You lifted my head up, I was keeping my head down, I didn’t know love, But I do now

You stood right there and You broke apart the lies

And You told me I had something beautiful inside

You brought to life the part of me I thought had died

‘Cause You stood right there until I saw me through Your eyes

-Britt Nicole (Through Your Eyes)

Britt’s right. When we look at ourselves through our eyes or even other people’s eyes we feel overwhelmed, unaccomplished, discouraged, and purposeless. But when we look at ourselves through God’s eyes…..gosh, it is such a beautiful thing.

Are you feeling like you need to do better at life in general?

Perhaps you feel like a failure to your friends, family, maybe even to God.

Take a moment, and read what God says about you in the Bible.

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. {1 John 3:1}

^ You are a child of God. ^

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. {1 Peter 2:9}

^ You are chosen, you have a specific God-given purpose. ^

O Lord, you have searched me and known me! {Psalm 139:1}

^ God knows you intimately and He loves you deeply ^

Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. {Psalm 32:1}

^ God’s forgiveness if freely offered to you, you are blessed. ^

How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light. {Psalm 36:7-9}

^ God is your refuge, He provides for you, He loves you with steadfast love. ^

When we look at ourselves through God’s eyes, we are filled with purpose and strength. He lifts our weary heads, He disperses the lies and assures us with the truth. He brings us to life. He wraps us in His arms and doesn’t let go.
