 Everlasting Mysteries

He fills us with a promise of what He will do yet again.
The ancient paths are His.
The ancient paths pass through us, His Way.
He looks our way and the earth trembles, men tremble,
and when we see, we are set calm again.
His ways are everlasting.
His way of discipleship is made clear,
and we know the Way.
Relationship with Him is joined with
responsibility for His people.
It is love here.
He laid down His life and so we share life.
We serve Him as we serve others–
Hands and feet and His wealth!
To be the good news for the poor,
we are set out on His everlasting path.
Know the way!

About Tom Bolton

I'm a Husband and Dad, an Enterprise Systems Manager at the City of Milwaukee, and a Disciple and Lay Servant at First United Methodist of West Allis. I love working beside young people. As I study the Bible, sometimes I feel moved to work through my understanding by writing poetry. I also am going through a process to discern my calling, and to learn more about Christian Leadership. Sometimes I just feel like writing about something that grabs my attention too.
