A walk along the beautiful California coastline
In search of the “Lost Coast”, an undeveloped stretch,
Much like a surfer who makes a weak effort
To catch a strong wave;
Human effort alone so feeble.
In Truth, in Divine Reality
No other way exists
Nothing else can work
Isolated human effort always miserably falls short;
But sadly few will ever understand
And acknowledge our most intimate personal need to believe
To know the God of Creation,
Yet, so easily satisfied with foolish stubbornness in what can be said or done.
Many plants in the high desert
Most full of thorns and thistles
Even grass with “sand burrs”, and then “goat heads”,
Our hands reach out boldly
But confidence returns often with only thistles and cactus thorns.
In humility, divinely ordered and enabled,
Spiritually moved, and sovereignly established
In “The Way” revealed from above
A path to enlightenment covered with delightful mystery
Waits to become known,
Priceless hidden treasure to be found
Most exquisite pearl to be discovered!
To seek, to ask, to knock
To believe in Yeshua
To desire to know Messiah,
To long with deepest longing
To want to seek to believe in Him above all else,
Then, to be able to will to really believe
To reach out from your heart
And suddenly to be anointed with the gift of faith in Messiah Yeshua;
A new man and a new woman follow God’s Way
And take their first steps in lasting confidence
Along the maturing Narrow Way
As eternal children of God our Father
And Yeshua our Kingdom Lord.
