Lord and Me.

Everynight and Everyday, Lord,

You and I are there, sitting together, in Your heavenly care,

as you teach me how love and pain to share.

I ask you, You give me,

Everything that I want,

but with a warning,

not to do anything wrong.

You help me Lord, when I’m in need,

You’re my best friend and Father indeed,

When all work is done,

You and I have some fun,

playing and running, and chasing the setting sun.

The day has gone and the night has come,

I’m so afraid, Lord, but You are so calm!

I fall asleep on Your holy palm,

but You never sleep But protect me from all evil harm.

You are so loving and kind towards me,

You are like my shadow always sticking by me,

Thank you for being my guide who guards me,

Thank you for never forsaking me.

You, my Lord , created all wonders,

You watch my every step, and save me from life thunders,

You make me wise, and fill me with Your Grace,

You always bless me with good knowledge,

and thus, You I shall forever Praise.
(This poem was actually written by me in 2007.. like 10 yrs back.. Just found the scribbles.. worthy of posting. )

I’m not cool. I choose Jesus.

I can write about my Lord so much, sometimes I can’t stop.
It’s not only a question of faith,

and I’m not a saint,

I AM JUST NOT ASHAMED TO TALK OR WRITE ABOUT HIM.
It is so sad when I see people mock faith, wear Rosary as an accessory more than a symbol of faith.

It is so sad when they mock people who talk abit about God, and call you dramatic.
Faith is losing importance day by day.

And that is even more sad.
I’m glad I’m not too caught up to look good and acceptable and cool, because that might win me a better crowd, but will surely not give me soulful peace.

In the quiet of a church or a temple, or any place of worship, there is a sense of divinity, a mystical beautiful calming feeling that allows you to sit in stillness, and the silence is not deafening. 

I’m so glad that we Christians still do have hours of holy adoration where we sit together in silent prayer before the Holy Sacrament, and for once in such moments – life is not a rat race, not making me want to run, chase or break.

It simply offers a divine peace and acceptance.
And that is something about faith.

In such moments we don’t have to be told what power there is in stillness. And yet when the numerous times we read the bible  verse “Be still” it really makes no much sense, untill you feel the holy presence our divine Lord in these moments of prayful meditation.

We listen to them sing, praise and worship, and we part take in it all, there are such moments where words spoken then hit you hard, make you want to cry down, there is depth, and you can feel the holiness of our Lord engulfing you and blanketing you. Its like magic all around, I very often am mesmerized with the feel of this. Even a person lacking faith, will start to believe in this mystical divinity.

Have faith. Be still. Feel HIM. He is near. He speaks in the silence. In the most deafening silence, the chaos is in your head, listen to your heart because He lives there, He awaits for you to acknowledge, and when you do, Silence will be the most peaceful place , you’d want to live in, with Him.

Stay blest. God bless. I will always choose my Jesus. Will you too ?

Story of Tough Faith .

Let me tell you a story, once upon a time, there was a man , who had a lovely family, a wife that stood by him through all the ups and downs, a son who knew the struggle and wanted to help his father, and an ignorant daughter protected like a princess.

She never knew that they had days when the struggle was so tough, that even though there was a roof on their head, her father and mother wouldn’t know what new storms tomorrow had.

The only thing that kept him going was his children and his wife, because they were not his weakness but his life, his strength, the positive things to be grateful about in a never ending negative life.

And each day in this struggle he became this ardous, loving and hard working man.

Together with his wife he nourished his kids with invaluable priceless values and gifts. Gifts that only struggle could give.

Gifts of being grounded even when we rise above the hardships. Gifts of being happy with what they had. Gifts of enjoying small things with great joy. Gifts of living a simple, beautiful and meaningful life.

Gifts of being humble and never losing hope. Values of not doubting God and never failing to pray, even in the most weakest and hardest moments , to give it all to him, and rest in his care.

To believe that one day this man that washed and repaired cars, that one day that this man who was mocked about, that one day this man who did not once think of his dreams, that one day this man who started from a pin, One day this man would FINALLY LIFE’S STRUGGLES WIN.

This man that burnt in the sun, tirelessly day in and day out, this man that ran about to fetch us all that we need, this man that kept us all under his wings.

He is my Father. 

My king. And I want to tell you. That I am proud of you. And that I love you.

I am never ashamed of this. You’ll are the wonders worth writing about, so all can read.

I wanted to write this to remind me of the days long gone, but the very days that made you the man I call my hero, my MAN OF STEEL.

And if you dada are like this, I can only imagine How much Our FATHER in HEAVEN loves us.

He never left you in your struggle only because you remained faithful to Him.

And this is the greatest lesson of the many you taught us through your actions.

Life at times is a challenge, one that defeats you, degrades you, makes you lose hope and faith. That grinds you till you break. But it also leads you to a new door of hope each time you fail , and when you take God’s hand and let him guide you, you will be uplifted in the most unexpected ways and unexpected times with blessings that make you believe in His power and glorious  plans.

Times did change, now Dada, God has blest you with everything, every damn thing that once was a dream. And if we sometimes feel a tiny pinch, then it is a reminder for us to look up, and live with HIM. HE WILL LEAD US WHERE HE NEEDS US. 

For the many times I fail you’ll, I am truly very sorry.

There is simply no other set of parents I’d rather have.

It’s only you. You’ll are the greatest blessings we are blest with.

I am not very best with speeches and saying things aloud. It’s the way I am. So this is for you and for me to remember our blessed roots.

With so much love my heart can offer,

Your ever protected daughter.

As HE spoke to me.

Dear Friends, 

This chapter:  Jeremiah 31 : in the Bible helped me immensely to rekindle my faith. It is so clearly written to understand deeply and have hope because there’s simply so much God spoke to me in this.

I hope this touches you as it touched me.

rrg

My Lord speaks : ——————-

“My child, My dearest loving sweet child, When you were lost in the desert of a false life and false belief, I was with you, I showed you my mercy. Remember My love,  My mercy and grace will help you overcome all your shortcomings and limitations. 

I have always loved you, My child, always, and I continue to show you my constant love. I will rebuild you, and equip you with everything that you shall need as I will guide you to the storms you face in life, and I will lead you to a road back to me where you will not stumble.

Trust me My love, Have so much faith that you can trust me blindly, for I will never let you down.

If the devil has given you the thoughts, that I have punished you, that I have scattered your emotions and your life in a whirlwind, that it is my fault that you are suffering, Listen to me, Please , Speak to me, do not let him make you believe in him and doubt me. I will gather you, and your hurt feelings, I will guard you like the good shepherd I am. I will set you free from the evil trap, let Me in , my child. Let Me do this for You.

Only I can save you. Will you let me ? Because when I do, you shall be overjoyed and delighted with all the blessings I shower you with. With Me, you will be well taken care of, and all your needs will be satisfied. I will comfort you like a mother to her child, I will turn your mourning into joy, your sorrow into gladness. Believe in Me.

I am not a genie here to grant your wishes. I am Your God, Your Father, Your creator, I know so much more about you and your needs than you know yourself and even more than your own father and mother. I know your every thought, I know my plan for your life, for your future, your prosperity. 

Stop your crying and wipe away your tears.

My dear parents, don’t forget that you too are my children, even when you I have blest with my other children, even as you grow older, you are still my children as your chidren are to you, no matter how old they get, for you they will always be your small babies you want to protect, like I do. I assure you, all that you have done for your children will not go unrewarded; each time you placed your child before your wishes, dreams and happiness, I will bless you with even greater rewards. Your children are mine, and I will deliver them from the hands of our enemy/ satan.

My child, There is hope for your future; a HOPE that I will always give you, even when you feel that flame extinguished, I will let it burn within you. For my Hope for you is endless and so should your faith in me be. You are my dearest child, the one I love best, my love for you is boundless. 

Whenever I mention your name, I think of you with loveMy heart goes out to you; just like a mothers flutters the moment she see’s her newborn. You do that to me each time you look upwards to me and call for me with faith and hope in your eyes. You give me pure joy to help you my child.

Come to me even when you have wronged me, I will be merciful, because my love will overpower all the wrongs you do. Because your wrongs are not you, you are my pure child, created will pure love, if the evil tempts you , try not to give in, I will help you if you ask me. I will not hold your wrongs against you. If you have gone astray, far away from me, it is never too late to return, I am waiting for you. Think of me, say my Name, It has power, believe and you shall find your way back to Me. Even when the evil tempts you to believe that it is futile, that there is no way back, that you are stuck, and I will not forgive you and accept you, Do not believe him.

After all that I have said to you, believe me, have faith in my love, Do not be afraid of me. I am Your father, even if I do get angry, Don’t you think it is my right to be so, as your father, allow me  to correct you, to lead you, to guide you, to protect you, to help you.

Come back my love, Come back home. Come back to me. You will always find a way back to me.  My spirit will guide you.

I will refresh your weary self and will satisfy your hunger with good food for your spirit.

 My child, when I test you, lead you to the deep waters, as I took care to uproot, to pull down, to overthrow, to destroy, and to demolish you, so will I take care to plant and build you into something more stronger and beautiful. Let me shape and mould you for the plans I have in store for you. Be open to My Will, it will be easy when you focus on me.

Have you ever seen an artist or a potter at work, how mystical it is to watch, you are my canvas, my clay , I am the creator , I will make the best of you , be patient with me, the longer I take with you, the results will be even more spectacular. Let me do what I must to make the most of you. Never lose faith in me.

Also remember , no sins are passed down to generations, no one is punished for the wrongs of others, do not curse, because curses belong to the evil one, they will bite back. Bless everyone, even the ones that make you doubt my plan. Bless your situations, Pray to me, I will speak to you.

My word is the portal for us to meet in prayer. Each one shall be held guilty for your own wrongdoings, until you repent and come back to me. Then, I will reside in the temple within you. I will be Your God, and You will be my precious child. I will forgive all of your sins and no longer remember your wrongs. I, the Lord, have spoken.

All of yourself will be rebuilt as my child, my own. You are sacred to me, in totality;  sin or without sin, good and bad, I will accept you, never reject you , for you are my sweet child, my love, I will never again let you be torn down or destroyed. I will make you whole in Me.

Much Love and blessings always,

Your loving Father.

Let’s read the Word of the Lord along with it.

Jeremiah 31 (GNT)

 In the desert I showed mercy to those people who had escaped death. When the people of Israel longed for rest, I appeared to them from far away. People of Israel, I have always loved you, so I continue to show you my constant love. Once again I will rebuild you.

a

9 I will guide them to streams of water,
    on a smooth road where they will not stumble.

10 The Lord says,

I scattered my people, but I will gather them
    and guard them as a shepherd guards his flock.
11 I have set Israel’s people free
    and have saved them from a mighty nation.
12 They will come and sing for joy on Mount Zion
    and be delighted with my gifts
 
They will be like a well-watered garden;
    they will have everything they need.
13 Then the  young and old, will rejoice.
I will comfort them and turn their mourning into joy,
    their sorrow into gladness.
14 I will fill the priests with the richest food
    and satisfy all the needs of my people.
I, the Lord, have spoken.”

16 Stop your crying
    and wipe away your tears.
All that you have done for your children
    will not go unrewarded;
    they will return from the enemy’s land.
17 There is hope for your future;
    your children will come back home.
    I, the Lord, have spoken.

20 “Israel, you are my dearest child,
    the one I love best.
Whenever I mention your name,
    I think of you with love.
My heart goes out to you;
    I will be merciful.
21 Set up signs and mark the road;
    find again the way by which you left.
Come back, people of Israel,
    come home to the towns you left.

25 I will refresh those who are weary and will satisfy with food everyone who is weak from hunger. 

v

26 So then, people will say, ‘I went to sleep and woke up refreshed.’

28 And just as I took care to uproot, to pull down, to overthrow, to destroy, and to demolish them, so I will take care to plant them and to build them up. 29 When that time comes, people will no longer say,

‘The parents ate the sour grapes,
But the children got the sour taste.’

30 Instead, those who eat sour grapes will have their own teeth set on edge; and everyone will die because of their own sin.”

33 The new covenant that I will make with the people of Israel will be this: I will put my law within them and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. 34 None of them will have to teach a neighbor to know the Lord, because all will know me, from the least to the greatest. I will forgive their sins and I will no longer remember their wrongs. I, the Lord, have spoken.”

35 The Lord provides the sun for light by day,
    the moon and the stars to shine at night.
He stirs up the sea and makes it roar;
    his name is the Lord Almighty.
36 He promises that as long as the natural order lasts,
    so long will Israel be a nation.

38 The time is coming,” says the Lord, “when all of Jerusalem will be rebuilt as my city.

40 The entire valley, where the dead are buried and garbage is dumped, and all the fields above Kidron  as far as the Horse Gate to the east, will be sacred to me. The city will never again be torn down or destroyed.”

The Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.

All I ask – Good Friday – words unspoken by My Jesus.

From the tears of blood in the garden of Gethsemane

To the nailing on the wooden heavy cross on Mount Calvary ,

Did you once think of my battle with fear and anxiety ?

Did you know that I could stop it all and let go of the plan of salvation my Father had for you ?

Did you once think how much it took for me to follow my Father’s will ? 

Because in that moment I was so vulnerable to think He did love you more than me !

And yet you ungrateful Child forget to believe in Him almost daily?

He chose you over me,

Why else do you think in my last I screamed 

“Eli Eli Lama Sabachthani ” ?

You do know, I and He, are One in the Spirit 

And He too must have felt my deepest pain,

Do you think you can let your only Child die for the sake of Humanity?

And here He did it, so His One child could return to Him the many He had lost to immorality.

“I, the Lord, am your God, 

I am the beginning and the end,

Do not be afraid of me,

For I have borne the eternal pain

Only so I could walk with you , if you allow me , towards our eternity.”

Will you now let me stay in you ?

Wasn’t my death proof enough of my endless love for you ?

Do you want to touch my torn skin and poke my wounds, that your denial of me inflicts?

Will you then in me doubtlessly believe ?

I am always there for you my lil sweet one,

All I ask , can you be there for me ?

and 

because MY FATHER has planned me a wonderful journey.

Mantra for peace

TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME.

ONE TINY STEP AT A TIME.

LIVE FOR TODAY. LIVE IN THE PRESENT.

DO NOT WORRY ABOUT YESTERDAY. IT IS GONE FOR GOOD.

DO NOT BE ANXIOUS ABOUT TOMORROW. IT IS STILL NOT YOURS.

BUT TODAY. NOW. THIS MOMENT IS WHAT MATTERS. 

YOU CAN EITHER STEP CLOSER TO YOUR DREAM OR DROWN FURTHER INTO YOUR FEARS.

Peace can be obtained only if balance is maintained in the NOW.

En ce moment, Aujourd’hui, Le présent est ce qui importe le plus.

Be calm knowing that your future is in the hands of The Almighty. Be at peace knowing that yesterday was according to His plan. Be happy knowing you are awake today to do His Will, to go on the path He has chosen for you, TO FULFILL HIS PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE.
