Choose to see His blessings flow,
God’s promises to keep.
Still see His tidal wave of love,
When waves are ankle deep.
Choose to see from where they sit,
Advantage of their views.
To understand them, take and walk,
A mile in their shoes.
Choose to see a father’s love,
In hugs and kisses gives.
His thoughtfulness revealed in gifts,
His life for you he lives.
Choose to see and stand with strength,
Your hero lives within.
You’re capable, you are enough,
Your story waits, begin.
Choose to see and learn from those,
Your generation past.
Their wisdom gained, experience,
This sea of wealth is vast.
Choose to see a child’s joy,
Their laugh, a medicine.
Choose to see you’re beautiful,
The outward and within.
Choose to see the little things,
The ties that bind love tight.
A walk, a talk or sweet embrace,
Or close beside at night.
Choose to see their will “I can”,
Though that their size is small.
Release them to the tallest wave,
Or scale the mountain tall.
Choose to see and celebrate,
For those who choose a different course,
Another wave to ride.
Choose to see your confidence,
You’re born for this you know.
So step out in your destiny,
Set free your dreams to grow.
Choose to see how fast time flees,
Like wind, her curls blow.
From morning rise to evening set,
Your little girl will grow.
Choose to see the house you live,
Four walls for where you sleep.
As home, a special place reserved,
For all the hearts you keep.
Choose to see how big God is,
He longs to hear His name.
Our restlessness His waters calm,
His beauty doth the same.
Choose to see His promises.
Fulfilled though wonder why.
Yet wait in hope His promises,
Are written in the sky.
Choose to see that love is strong,
As ocean waves that flow.
Aloha bids a sad good-by,
Yet greets a sweet hello.
Choose to see the love you share,
Who set your heart aflame.
And cherish every smile of theirs,
Who call you each by name.
Choose to see when difficult,
When eyes are blind to thee.
Find hope and confidence in faith,
As this is how you see.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for,
and assurance about what we do not see.
Hebrews 11:1 NIV
