Who truly lives
Stands strong and confident
While compassion and peace rule the heart and soul?
The mysteries of life are hidden deeply within what cannot be seen,
Words are spoken that the natural ear cannot hear;
The human spirit withers,
Walks a barren desert alone, overwhelmed with thirst
The sun beats down
And the evening chill grips without mercy.
Then the Hand of Grace in Mercy reaches down
Lifts the man or woman in need
And reveals waters that revive
Truth that covers with cleanest warmth
Bread that is more than food
Life that rises above the common earth,
Soars with angels among the stars
Walks in humility the roads that lead to streets,
Streets that lead to homes and places of simple dwelling
Where human needs are gathered
Often in desperation, often in poverty of despair
“Without hope and God in this world”.
He stands as a new vessel in strength and walks by faith
A heart freely poured out
Offered with no cost to anyone, everyone met
Prayers of love pour forth, spoken and unspoken
Compelled by Heaven’s Holy Spirit Love
Forever steadfast along the only Way of Truth,
His Shepherd’s most narrow road for Life
Walked so long ago
Footprints of footsteps always fresh to follow;
Like many others he walks by faith
Gift to believe by the Savior given
Supernatural strength to move forward along the Kingdom path.
Humble prayers offered for many are heard
Those who will someday, somehow embrace good change,
Enlightened, plucked from the fire, saved from the “second death”;
These too will fall to their knees in repentance and in worship
After sudden waves of revelation from God
Just like Paul, Thomas, Peter and many others of their day,
Emerald rainbows will encircle them like James and John
And even remnant modern Israel!
Eyes formed by their Maker will see with full enlightenment
Ears made by their Creator will hear with clear understanding
And new Light will glow from within their being as well;
They too will live and walk by faith in Messiah Yeshua
Standing strong till the end.
