Destined before time

In the perfect plan of our perfect God

A new creation in Him,

A new creation joined as one.

Two drawn together, even from the ends  of the earth

Divine knowledge held out

Gift of love to share

One heart opened, naked to another,

Mysterious ways of love

Intimate knowledge possesses each other

As seeds, as gems, as bright pearls sown within.

Lives strengthened, hand in hand to walk this troubled earth

Nation against nation, unseen kingdoms in conflict,

To taste and hear the only lasting victory in perseverance

The only path to personal triumph in spiritual endurance

Discovery of the most secret, treasured walk

Hidden riches found within another;

Invisible hands teach how to express love

How to caress and comfort and encourage,

How to touch the heart and soul

To celebrate within human bodies

Pure expressions of eternal truth in covenant

Spirits and minds that have learned to care

From that very first tender kiss

When quieted mouths and lips met,

The discovery of true love in loving the other first,

In loving the Creator, Messiah above all

The One who forms desire within

Pours out the blessing of righteous longing, timely yearning,

Like wandering streams into rivers

And rivers into torrents and waterfalls clothed with rainbows,

Finally into great floods of cleanest passions;

Two brought together to live out the enduring beauty,

Life in this world in heaven’s way,

A man with a woman

A woman with a man

Who stand complete together in confidence before their God.


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.
