Just  A Glimpse



Maybe all we catch
is just a glimpse within the light,
a blur at best, but evidence,
of a fish so sleek and bright.

We know the fish is present
yet we must seek if we're to see,
When our eyes stray from the water
seeing fish just will not be.

Daily all around us.
God's glory shines forth as a light,
His Majesty and goodness
evidenced and bright.

As we acknowledge Him as Sovereign,
we see He's faithful, good, and true,
the act of giving thanks
brings Him clearly into view.

Understanding is a gift
it opens up our eyes,
helps us discern the difference
between God's truth and earthly lies.

It is not an explanation
for those can have a different source,
explanations spring from finite minds
and can misdirect our course.

For we understand through faith
and that a gift of grace,
that springs from God's pure Holy heart,
and leaves our eyes upon His face.
