FAITHFUL ONES, BY FAITH
He stands in new strength and walks by faith
Compelled by Heaven’s Holy Spirit love
Forever steadfast along the only true Way
His Shepherd’s most narrow path for Life
Walked long ago by the One who revealed the Way, His Way;
Common feelings come, human feelings go
Yet, “perfection” somehow calls, draws from within,
Though the body seems frail and weak
Silver threads of the “Silver Cord” remain strong
Even from the first birth with Heaven’s touch.
In spite of all, I still hear the merciful Spirit Voice
He calls to my inner gift of faith-
“Press on! Press on! Take hold of your destiny.”
And daily I do…
Many others follow nearby, they too hear the words spoken
Read the honest encouragements written
And continue their unique path of faith in Truth.
The world and those who love it first, scoff and mock
Roaring streams from blind, intellectual cynics,
More pours out from stubborn rebels
While pride and arrogance adorn the foolish hearts of others;
But their loud sounds and crude noise fall empty to the ground.
My humble prayers offered for the few are answered,
Those who will embrace good change one day
Plucked from the fire, saved from the “second death”,
Ones who repent and fall to their knees
After sudden waves of Heaven’s revelations
Just like gracious Paul, Thomas, Peter and many others,
Emerald rainbows will encircle them like James and John
And even remnant modern Israel!
Eyes formed by the Maker will see with enlightenment
Ears made by the Creator will hear with understanding
And new Light will glow from within their being as well;
All who love the Way more than the world
All who love the Truth more than themselves
All who love the Life more than a selfish nature
All who love their Savior, their Lord more than their own life.
