God Looks Upon the Heart: Poetry By Joyce C. Lock - A Spiritual And Inspirational Poem from All-Creatures.org

Spiritual and Inspirational poetry that touch the heart and soul, and provoke the mind.

God reaches down to love you
When no one knows your name.
Whether in a pool of blood
Or a mountaintop estate,
He loves you just the same.

The appearance on the outside
Says nothing of the heart.
With the potter's clay
And the Master's touch,
He gives a brand new start.

God saw, from the beginning,
A diamond in the ruff.
Knowing who would wear and uphold His name,
He could choose whom
He would love.

I Peter 2:9

When God decides a matter,
The first place He will start
Is not upon the circumstance -
He looks upon the heart.

I Samuel 16:7b
