For He goes before me.

“But inspite of what I said, you still would not trust the LORD, even though He always went ahead of you to find a place for you to camp. To show you the way , He went in front of you in a pillar of fire by night and in a pillar of cloud by day.” DEUTERONOMY 1:32-33.

My Lord has walked the path I walk, he has borne much more pain than I do, He has absorbed the wrath of my enemies before I even felt the blurred heat.

What wrongs I face are much more mellowed down, only because my Lord has taken the worst upon him. 

What I face is what he knows I can take. 

And as I feel weak and call on Him in my hour of need, he stops fighting my battle and envelopes me in his tender loving arms, He is my shield, but above all He is my Father.

He has been in my morrows, my yesterdays and my now.

He never forsakes, even when I do, He is always there right beside me or before me , protecting me with His army of angels.

Whether I go east or west, choose good or evil, he knows my every thought, my every choice, my every decision, my every step, even before I know it. 

All mistakes and sins I do, I inflict much more pain on him than tainting my soul.

But He knows, that to do the rightful thing sometimes we need the wrong ways to help us learn the lessons that no cautious warning would ever make us understand.

He loves us despite the person we become, good or bad, righteous or prodigal , we are alike. For him we are His children. And like the best father He is, He will always guide our steps, our thoughts , our dreams, our wishes.

Oh pillar of fire ! Oh pillar of clouds !

warming the nights and blessing our days,

Your presence around me fills me with wonder.

Lead me to Your ways, Lord, teach me to pray.

Oh humble, Oh Mighty !

Oh ever Loving Merciful Father !

Your majesty, I am enchanted,

Your grace is my strength ,

Your love – my courage,

Your presence- my Hope,

Your Mercy -my faith.

As Your hands mould me, Oh divine Potter !

cleanse my heart and so my soul,

fill me with your love,

rekindle my faith, let it burn like hot coal.

Let me see what You see for me,

Let me do Your Holy will,

and alas! if I ever do fail you,

forgive me when I come to you on my bended knees, in repentance,

Lord , I know you will receive me,

and heal me with your love that is abundant.

Love alone is the magic to cure everything,

sin or disease, hatred or weakness, temptations or desires,

it is love that can fill all voids in our lives,

and love alone , we need to feel whole.

This love , is YOU LORD.

Oh my Father, worthy of Praise,

You are love, so pure, love eternal set ablaze,

never dying, never failing,

always guiding, always healing. 

Thank you Lord, Thank you Father,

Praise you Lord, Praise you Father.

Amen.

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.

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 ?
