You’re Not A Loser

It’s Poetry Friday!

 

Here’s a beautiful song penned by Sandi Patty, which I hope will bless your heart and give you renewed hope in this world of stress, failures, uncertainty, disappointments and blinding fear.

 

In Heaven’s Eyes

A fervent prayer rose up to Heaven,

A fragile soul was losing ground.

Sorting through the earthly babel,

Heaven heard the sound.

This was a life of no distinction,

No successes, only tries,

Yet gazing down on this unlovely one,

There was love in Heaven’s eyes.

In Heaven’s eyes, there are no losers,

In Heaven’s eyes, no hopeless cause.

Only people like you, with feelings like me,

Amazed by the grace we can find,

In Heaven’s eyes.

The orphaned child, the wayward father,

The homeless traveler in the rain,

When life goes by and no-one bothers,

Heaven feels the pain.

Looking down, God sees each heartache,

Knows each sorrow, hears each cry,

And looking up we’ll see compassion’s fire,

Ablaze in Heaven’s eyes.

In Heaven’s eyes, there are no losers,

In Heaven’s eyes, no hopeless cause.

There’s only people like you, with feelings like me,

Amazed by the grace we can find

In Heaven’s eyes.

  1. Friday? Well would you believe it. I’ve been saying for the last couple of years that someone was stealing my hours in the days … and now their stealing my whole days!

    Sharon … you’re going to laugh at me when I tell you that when I saw your post early this morning (Thursday 17th) I actually had to check what day it actually was today by bringing up the calendar on my computer! I honestly thought I’d lost a whole day! LOL.

    Bless you, you fabulous woman.

    Oh … and …. Happy Saturday! 😀

  2. I was laughing at myself so much when I spoke to you in that last comment that I totally forgot to say how lovely the song/poem was. I haven’t heard it before, so it’s totally new to me. It’s beautiful Sharon. I love it. ~ C. x
