We see the finish line revealed before us

The race of true peace we run

Grace the holy gift that carries

Swift Spirit wings of our Father

Footsteps of the Great Shepherd clearly before our eyes,

Loud commands, gentle whispers within our inner ear

Ancient translations to read

To daily feed upon as simple, pure bread

Drinks of worship to follow.

The plan of sensitivity and obedience made clear

Way of Heaven

In sublime honesty to always honor the One above all

Who alone is worthy to be praised

The pure religion of worship our souls created for

Our new life in rebirth given freely

Joyful sacrifice of holiness born of holiness.

The relatively few days walked on earth

Are to be walked in the Light of His presence

Spirit of living peace who indwells

Spirit of love as that inner stream flows over each circumstance

Washes over those in each life experience

Family, neighbors, coworkers, strangers, enemies

The unique life predestined with infinite detail

Every precise step, each wonderful encounter

Each hand held, kisses given

Divine word of truth from your mouth

Gifts to another freely given the same.

We hold each others’ hands as we walk

Communal bond, arms about waists

Arms about shoulders

Joined together as the line is finally crossed

In the marathon called faith the marvelous goal reached

While Messiah’s Cross looms larger and larger,

Gates of pearl now before us

The only possible way in life opens to the golden light of eternity

Prized beyond earthly human imagination

New life given rests forever within

Rewards of indwelling knowledge angels long for.    

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.
