Through Your Eyes

Okay, so I'm not really one for poetry.  I'll confess that right off the bat.  However, I was challenged to write a poem as an exercise for a study that I'm going through at church.  I literally just wrote it a minute ago, and it probably has no technical poetic form or whatever, but I wanted to share it anyway.

"Through Your Eyes"

Though I constantly betray You and throw the blessings You've given me in Your face,
You still have compassion on me.

You look at me as Your beloved daughter, 
and You accept me, understand me, and show me mercy. 

Where would I be without Your all-encompassing grace?

You give me the strength to persevere through this world's fallness,
because I know that You use all of my brokeness for good, for Your glory.
You reign and You are forever victorious.

May I always see myself through Your eyes--
as a beloved daughter, who is accepted...
