As the storm begins to rage all about

Winds of a new hurricane

Sudden waves as walls of power,

As our old friend Paul, we lift up bread to our Lord

Broken bread to our lips with prayers;

Not a hair of our heads to be lost,

The end sealed from the beginning.

Relentless waves of ill-feelings come against

Persecution as dark winds challenge

Cold rain runs down faces.

Hair and clothing soaked through by the world,

Yet, we stand strong.

Those with selfish cunning

Those clever in worldly forces seize the rudder

Drive the American ship onto the rocks,

Currency turned inside out, upside down

Dollar stripped naked and ruined

Inflation and famine and hardship,

Rioting in the cities

Treachary in high places

Fear in the neighborhoods

Violence all about,

Weeping eyes run dry of tears;

Coastlines flooded

Eathquakes divide this land, ouir land

Foreign troops in ruthlessness seen,

But we, we will lift more bread in thanks

In the Name of the Lord our “strong tower”.


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.

  1. I like the poem. Real, for all its future truths to be, yet ending in the hope of Christ…
