Works of the Lord by Gary Bertnick


Merciful Lord above all,
Every circumstance
Every transgression
All the failings of mankind,
Each woman who surrenders to fear
Every man consumed with greed;
Just as the swallows return in the glow of springtime
And dart about with wings of gladness
So freedom rises
Soars on God’s abundant mercy shown,
The One “greatly to be feared
Alone with power to forgive”.
As I walk along my day
A sudden gust of wind sends my cap sailing,
With laughter I chase it down…
Then, a yellow and black Monarch Butterfly nearby catches my eyes
It works and moves along through the repeated gusts
The wind but another sharpened arrow of circumstance
A momentary channel for purpose revealed
Conscious stream to take pleasure in
Usefulness like the hand of a ready Friend
Who guides as we seem at times to stumble along our way
Yet, really walk a golden path of enlightenment
Metallic glow about for Light.
Fellowship of many others the same
In person, on the Internet, in Scripture
Who seek as I do
Who search with tender hearts experiences like my own
Who confidently move in the quiet winds of God’s mercy
His often secret presence
His not so secret hands of kindness that comfort and guide
That protect His little children
And unveil treasures of the heart and soul,
True life once hidden to us all.
