Statement of Faith

I can see best when I'm down on my knees,
When I'm listening to Jesus, when He's speaking to me.
On my knees I see clearer than I do from above,
When I'm meeting with Jesus, I see through His love.

It's hard to be haughty when kneeling in prayer,
For my vision is cleared when I meet with Him there.
It's hard to judge others while petitioning Him,
While seeking forgiveness for my failures and sins.

My perception is best when I kneel before Him
And He opens my eyes to His love once again.
Though to some it seems foolish, it is wisdom to me ---
When I want to see best, I get down on my knees.

1995 J M McIntosh

The LORD gives sight to the blind, the LORD lifts up those 
who are bowed down, the LORD loves the righteous.
(Psalm 146:8)
