What Do You See? by Julia Wilson

A Poem


What do you see when you look at Me?

A baby lying on a bed of straw

Surrounded by animals

Loved by His parents

But no room at the inn

Born to die.

 

What do I see when I look at you?

A baby lying in a hospital cot

Clean surroundings

A new life full of potential.

 

What do you see when you look at Me?

A child growing

Learning his father’s trade

Preparing for His Father’s business.

 

What do I see when I look at you?

A child growing

Learning its letters

Preparing for life

Walking with Me.

 

What do you see when you look at Me?

A Man drawing others to His Father

Loved,

Worshipped,

Adored.

Followed by men.

A Man with the healing touch

A Man going about His Father’s business.

 

What do I see when I look at you?

A man going about his business

Too busy to pray

Too busy for Me.

Too many cares

Too much money to make

Too much money to spend

Too many business deals to make

No room in his heart for Me.

 

What do I see when I look at you?

A man going about his business

Too busy not to pray

Too busy not to worship

A man who sees people

A man who sees Me

A man with room in his heart for Me.

 

What do you see when you look at Me?

A Man bruised and battered

Bleeding

Dying.

Hanging on a cross

For you

For me.

 

What else do you see?

A mother kneeling

Weeping, wailing

Powerless to help.

A mother who can only watch

And weep

For her Son

Hanging on a tree.

 

What do you hear?

A whisper

A word

A name

Your name

My name

A cry

“It is finished.”

 

What do you see when you search for Me?

A Man

Risen.

A Man Who loves

You

Me

A Man Who promises

“Never will I leave you

Never will I forsake you

I AM with you always.”

 

What do I see when I look at you?

A body

Old, worn out, tired.

A life lived with eyes on Me

A life loved with a heart beating in tune with Mine

A soul joined with Me.

 

Give Me your hand

And together we will step into eternity.
