Hidden safely in the heart
A glowing refuge, a walk a place of trust
Intimate knowledge of the great things of God
Much wisdom held in humble hands,
A man or woman the same
As children of Heaven, they walk in divine peace
A Shepherd stands before them,
Always walks at their side.
Though many are called
Few listen, less hear
Only a remnant follow and are chosen;
The children of God, peculiar to this world
Strangers, misunderstood by most
Treated much like He was.
Persecuted by some
Hated by others,
They walk in a different Light
Bow before a different King
Reject “self” and the world designed about it and for it,
Layers of darkness pretend as light
Wrapped about in colorful layers of deceit that celebrate the natural
Stubborn and rebellious human nature in love only with itself.
Though a “Majestic Mountain” rises before us
Few bother to lift their eyes
Fewer yet see the stars beyond the earth and moon;
Greatest mystery- life is offered freely
But a death walk is chosen at an awful price!
The Spirit of Messiah moves through the crowds into His new garden
Disciples follow with tears of compassion and lives of thanksgiving,
A powerful light shines from soul windows
Heavenly light fills these temples.
Eyes of others follow them with indifference, laziness
Apathetic, self-satisfied stares
Their own lives of worry, anxiety and money problems
Television, sports and other diversions
Until, one day when they all wake up
And clearly see eternity sealed against them
Darkness forever written on their foreheads.
