Read Poem: TO BELIEVE by Gary Bertnick

To always believe
Though surrounded in an atmosphere of doubt,
Truth always more powerful
And gripping the heart with Divine strength,
The mind battles for pure and clean honest thoughts
While the winds of deceit and perversion move constantly about,
Sometimes in a roar
Sometimes in a whisper
The war on the mind rages forth!
Holy Words always a much sharper sword
Common thoughts in daily languages fall to the ground
As Scripture quoted and meditated upon surges steadfastly forward
From the very beginning the “Evil One” was crushed beneath the omnipotent heal,
Prophetic Words long ago fulfilled!
Authority of the Name above all written on our foreheads
More than tablets, inscribed on our hearts;
Inner knowledge has already surpassed simple belief
As faith in Messiah’s power grows and matures in deepening Peace
Love reaches out with broader, longer touches in tenderness
Caring as our Shepherd, rich kindness and gentleness flow,
Wisdom rises within, wings of brilliance
As we begin to see as He sees;
Belief in Yeshua as an early seed
Has already grown more than expected,
More than even prayed for!
