Trust is not easily discovered,

Trust is found newly within often after times of acknowledged despair,

And deepest piercing discouragement gives birth

To a simple prayer of need-

“Lord in heaven, I believe, help my unbelief!”

Trust is not on the edge of a high cliff or mountain

But in the depths below,

When alone, hungry and thirsty

With no hope of food or water,

Seemingly in a snare, fully out of sight

Out of the minds of those once thought of as friends, as lovers,

Even as Spirit brother, Spirit sister.

Trust is reached for only by the heart,

Not the hand grasping for comfort.

Powerful living words of the Scriptures written by Messiah’s finger

Held as the only lasting treasures in this life 

“Word made flesh”, peace indwelling miraculously,

Out of true need the heart cries out from within a human soul,

And the God who is Love always answers-

“Draw near to me.”

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.
