Silence captures a moment,

While a voice of caring goes out

Words of love freely from the heart

Often met, answered by only silence,

Even friends once thought of dearly

Seem to turn their backs

Then fade away;

The Church family seems lost as well at times of real need.

Separation in pain,

As the face turns alone towards Heaven

Eyes closed to the dark clouds above

Yet, drops of rain fall all around

Strike the face

Strike the head and the body

Water streams down

Tears of sadness blend in

And the heart cries out- “Lord, why?”.

Then as the water soaks through the covering

An understanding, a reminder as intuition settles upon the mind –

“As I walked the earth, so do you,

As I was ignored and belittled

So will you be

As I set my face like flint

Now, so can you!”

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.
