The true worth of a man

Real value of a woman

Prize of a priceless child newly born,

As the earth rotates

And the sun rises and sets

Day after day passes by,

Work and troubles of each cycle unending.

A restless soul cries out for meaning

An impatient heart grimaces in pain for deeper purpose

But, the answers fall flat, empty,

Clear voices fade, then fade away.

Injustice of the world, violence everywhere

Even the wealthy in turmoil,

The famous always stumble and fall;

Greatness and glory in the world much as the internet

But a moment’s vapor, mist come then gone,

All forgotten names and faces

Flames once burned brightly

To light the way of earthly shadows,

Now cold, blank, silent in this shameless world.

Suddenly, from an unknown place, a new spark, a covering magnificant flash

A new light of hope is seen

From a narrow trickle to a growing flood

Earth bathed in a different supernatural light.

A small cross becomes a huge tower,

The Voice that cried “It is finished.”

Now powerfully resounds throughout the Universe,

Tower for refuge, shelter for any troubled spirit, mind and soul

Safety beyond simple healing made known.

Name above all names revealed to a humble man with a broken heart,

Shown to a meek woman with a crushed spirit,

Beautiful Name as a glowing banner wrapped about the newest child

Kingdom robes to cover the nakedness,

Life experienced never to be the same.


A rock becomes a mountain and fills the Earth 


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.
