Gift of Sight

Is this a distraction or Your plan of action

A promise fulfilled or my tainted will

A gift so wise or a clever disguise

Oh, wash these corroded scales

from my eyes

So I would see, I would decipher

How to choose wisely for my ever after


“And immediately something like scales fell from his eyes, and he regained his sight. Then he rose and was baptized;” Acts 9:18

Discernment

My name is discernment

Trust what I reveal and know

I show you the hidden things

You’d otherwise never be told

I show you opportunities for blessing

And how to count sorrow as joy

I whisper God’s wisdom 

Amid this world’s noise

I sense when something new is brewing

When it is time to block an attack

I sense calmness and times to be still

When to move on and when to hold back

I’m a gift, don’t ignore me

Shut me out or throw me away

Embrace me and listen

Trust what I say
