ELIJAH WAITS

ELIJAH  WAITS

 

Worn out by the world

A weary servant of Heaven waits

Patience stretched by perseverance and stretched even more

Obedience as a cloak wrapped about on a cold desert night,

Many things done, many words spoken

Mostly fallen upon stubborn, deaf ears

Eyes that do not see clearly

The thick mist and fog of this world,

Breath of evil wafts about

Darkness agitating human nature, often the driving force.

Mouths speak what pure hearts are full of,

But who listens?

How many less even seek to understand,

Sadly, amongst the true believers

Few have learned to hear Messiah’s Spirit

Discerning His Voice within;

Some are trained, discipled to perceive in wisdom

Yet. perception as reality in many, a light fog at best.

To the one who trusts as Elijah

Food, water and clothing,

Always the daily bread and God’s purpose at hand;

His Lord who cares more deeply

Powerful love wraps about the tired shoulders

And keeps the heart very warm.

Tender angels send ravens with bread

Warrior angels keep the nearby stream flowing with clean, cool water.

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.
