Merciful Father, as we are disciplined and tested in the crucible of life we experience the blessing of every believing child of You, our God. We believe we can never sufficiently thank You for the gift of eyes to see the burden of our failures yet can see beyond them to the opportunities to joyously serving those who are truly in need of our help. Send us Your Holy Spirit who can wondrously provide us the "inner eyes" that can see the wonders of Your love in our lives. Amen.
