Horizon – the Relationship between God and man

Back in my college days I wrote the following poem in attempt to put into words what I felt God was trying to teach me. My relationship with Him needed to be at the level where I was hidden and only He was visible. My Christian life needed to be one of nothingness to the extent that my actions, words, deeds and service were hardly recognizable as my own by only recognized as a work of God through me.


The never ending horizon
As sky met land and sea
The far off distance came together
So as God joined man
Like the meeting of the horizon
One cannot see where
The sky meets sea, but only
Knows that there are two
So when people see you
Not to see you alone
But God there right beside you
You and God joined together
Abiding forever – and Him in you
No beginning and no end
Only you joined to Him
And that is what they’ll see
This is your testimony
This is your call
Live life in such a way
That people only see God in you
Oh you’re “you” on the outside
But inside there is only God
Only God living in you
This is your testimony
This is your call
We were created in God’s image
And daily we should be more so
This is your testimony
This is your call
Live life in such a way
That there is no beginning to you
And no ending to God
