SECOND  BIRTH


Earth child suddenly from the womb of comfort

Lips tremble

Eyes brighter and brighter, much as a new morning sky,

A large hand reaches down to touch

A tiny hand grasps a finger

In a joyful union of love

Truly a life changing moment for all.

One person walks a desert path

Or one that zigs and zags through an endless commercial landscape

Heat of the desert, crush of the material city,

Another tossed on a turbulent sea

No peace to be found in waves of trials

No treasure to be sought in common struggles;

When he comes to the end of his self

Or she sits alone and stares blankly

The Lord of heaven and earth turns all inside out

Makes the bottom the top, the top the bottom

The crooked straight, the straight curved,

Moves the world and the entire angelic realm

Causes true hunger, creates true thirst

Designs circumstances

Then sends eternal Manna, Messiah from Heaven

New life,

A Spring of Living Water to flow within.

About Gary Bertnick

I was a Minnesota teenager in the late 1960's. I was drafted into the military after an intense time at an engineering school. As a graduate chemical engineer and former athlete, I became a Marine Corps private. The Lord spoke to me through a friend while visiting Rapid City,S.D. My true discipleship began in Southern California and was boosted through association with Morris Cerullo Ministry and others. I fed upon the Scriptures and have learned to be led by the Holy Spirit. I know what the fear of the Lord is. What I write is done to honor the Lord and to touch the lives of those who know Him as well as those who should.
