Nearness

Oh, my soul!

when you feel repentant
look not at your mistakes
look at His forgiveness

when you feel maltreated
look not at your pain
look at His mercy

when you feel distressed
look not at your weakness
look at His strength

when you feel deprived
look not at your poverty
look at His providence

when you feel miserable
look not at your sufferings
look at His guidance

when you feel incomplete
look not at your defectiveness
look at His perfection

when you feel alone
look not at your distance
look at His nearness
