CLOUDS

 

CLOUDS

 

Beautiful white clouds of moisture

Fresh water that hangs in the balance

Hovers over our dry earth.

In a drought and a famine

Thirst for God’s favor upon a nation;

A sincere few struggle

Seek to till the land

Break up the clogs, smooth the layers

Daily plant their seeds,

Daily water what they can.

Fickle masses of people walk about

Blown here and there by every wind of deceit, deceitful appetites

Always seek the easiest  path

Footsteps of pleasure, of comfort to self

Long for days as portrayed in steams of digital images

As money and goods flow

Bellies quickly fed

And the search for even more happily begun.

Always in their minds these fat days will soon return,

Even as their fathers, past generations,

Things “always go on the same”.

Yet, words written , holy words spoken long ago

Hang like dark clouds of war over their heads.

Birth pangs of generations have been painful

A new earth soon to show forth

Even a new heaven above

An open heaven with good rain upon these who were faithful,

To plant, to sow and water

Who work the earth for a great harvest

Serving their God who causes all things to grow,

Who stands waiting above the angelic clouds of the Third Heaven.

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.
