Seeing The Person Inside

At times when words fail me,
I pray for You to bless their hearts
with ears and eyes like Yours,
so they can hear and see what I meant
with compassion.

At times when I start to build a wall,
curl up in my shell and thicken my mask,
I pray for You to enlighten my heart;
Bless mine with ears and eyes like Yours,
so I wouldn't misinterpret their words.

Cleanse my heart, for I know that it is on parade whenever I speak.
Cleanse my heart and may the words I speak reflect understanding,
patience, compassion and Your grace.

"The peace of God, which surpasses all understanding,
will guard your hearts and minds."

This is so beautiful. At the end I said "Amen." It certainly reflects the true Christian spirit. Great post.
