The walk.

Lee : Jesus, where are we going ?

Jesus : That’s a surprise my child. 

Lee: Will I be happy?

Jesus : With me, yes, you will be.

Lee: See Lord, it’s so beautiful and green, can I take one flower? They are so beautiful!

Jesus : My child, What would you do with it ?

Lee : hmmmm.. keep it… ? take it home.. 

Jesus : And then. 

Lee : It will die eventually, though. So I dunno.

Jesus : Yes. This beauty that you see around will fade in time, even you my child , your outer beauty will fade as you grow older, but your inner beauty will shine brighter. Will you walk with me ? Where I want to take you, is a beautiful place, but quite an adventure. Are you ready ?

Lee: Yes , Lord. I so am. Let’s go. 

Jesus : Thinking. [ If only she knew, that not all paths will be through the greenest valleys, there will be a few paths through the dessert, where she will be thirsty for many things, but they will be hard to find, there will be a few or many mountains for us together to climb, will she remember at all times, that I am here, holding her hand ? Will she remember to be this excited about life always, as we walk through these green meadows ? I will teach her. I hope she allows me to. ]

Lee : Jesus? Are you there ? Why are you not talking to me ?

Jesus : I’m here my child, what is it ?

Lee : The green pastures are gone, and I think there’s a storm coming our way, I’m afraid. Please don’t leave me Lord.

Jesus : Listen to me my child, I am your God, I will never forsake you. Do not be afraid. I am with you, for now and always. Do not fear the storm, when you have me. Do not doubt my presence through our journey. 

Lee : Our journey Lord? Ain’t this my life ?

Jesus : No, my child. This life that I gave you belongs to me as much as you, you are mine, and so is your life. I control it. Do you have faith ?

Lee : Faith ? Yes Lord. But What about the storm ? There’s no way out. We are trapped. 

Jesus : This is your test My child, Fix your eyes on me. Whom do you see ? In this storm, if you see only me, You will know I will lead you through it. Don’t take your eyes off me, you will get lost.

Lee : If I get lost, Will you find me ? 

Jesus : I always will. But will you come back to me, when you find the way ?

Lee : Yes Lord.

Jesus : I will always wait. Trust me, my child, what awaits you goes through me first. I will not give you what you can’t handle. And when you are tired and heavy burdened, give it to me, your all, and I will give you rest.

Lee : I love you Lord. I now know I’m safe in your hands. I will focus on you as we go through this.

Jesus : I love you more my child,  My love for you is boundless. Even when you lose focus, I will be there. I will protect you and save you. Do not be afraid. I am the way, the truth and the life.

Lee : You are my way. My life is your’s. I am your child. Thank you for being with me.

Jesus : Come now, child, let’s go. The plans I have for you, will lead you to prosperity. Count on me. And remember, it is not only the dessert we shall walk through, but we will have to climb the hills and mountains on our way. We have to keep walking, in faith. My father will guide us with His spirit. Do you believe in me ?

Lee : Yes , Lord , I do. Will it be too tough ?

Jesus : It will make you brave and strong and victorious. Let’s keep walking. Each step will take us closer to your reward.

Learn as you walk, child. There are many lessons we learn in this walk of life. 

I will teach you. 

Lee: I will try to do right, please don’t leave me.

Jesus : I won’t.

______ _____ _______ _________ ____________
As we walk through life, we often fail to realise that God is with us, every moment of our journey.

May we learn to focus on Him, to remember Him always in all that we do.

May we learn the many lessons he wants us to learn as His plans for our lives unfold.

May we learn to be like Him. Gentle, kindhearted, full of love and mercy and compassion and gratitude and limitless faith.

Stay blest.

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.
(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 ?

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 ?


_ L E A N D R A _

_ R O D R I G U E S _

God has a plan

Ecclesiastes 3:1 “​Everything that happens in this world happens at the time God chooses.”

I think we should STOP looking around , Feeling frustrated  and asking God why He is blind to us and just to others ?

 For each one  of us – There is a purpose,

 A magnificent plan that is unfolding, it is Our Master’s Plan , 

OUR LORD’S PLAN.

How can it ever fail ? Just because my neighbor has flowers blooming in his garden and not one in mine does not give me a right to cut my plants and curse them . I need to take proper care, maybe perhaps learn a technique or two from my neighbor and have more faith and patience.

For each one of us is unique, we each have a different purpose to serve, God has a different plan for us. 

We all know about this adivasi tribe cursing trees in groups , to kill it without using an axe . The spoken harsh words can take lives. 

What we often say and believe has an impact on how we live and thrive. If we are always complaining, cursing, not being grateful, comparing and desiring what our neighbor has , How shall we ever be open to Our Lord and the fruits He bestows upon us ?  How can we not be grateful for his Love and Presence.

Feed Your spirit  God’s Holy Scriptures and positivity and see the change.

Our  life is a mess ever since we’ve taken everything for casual even God.. Taking Him for granted, letting the devil make us doubt the plans of the Almighty.

In the times You feel alone, He alone stands by you, puts His angels incharge of you, You are precious to Him and all He wants in return is faith, patience and love. Don’t we expect that from the people we love ? We want understanding, friendship, fidelity, love, respect, patience, acceptance, guidance, compassion, communication etc. … All of this is what God offers us, but we often fail to see. It is WE WHO FAIL TO COMMUNICATE WITH HIM. IT IS WE WHO FAIL TO SEE HIS PLANS UNFOLDING LEADING US TO PROSPERITY. IT IS WE WHO RUIN OUR LIVES NOT GOD. 

We are always Questioning our Generous Merciful Father , when we are in no position to ever question Him and His Holiness, we cannot afford to doubt ever on His Plans. We cannot rely on our intuition but only on God.

LET US PRAY FOR HIS WILL, not mine , not yours, not ours, but let’s be open to THE WILL OF THE ALMIGHTY.

To live a fulfilled life, We need to PRIORITIZE GOD . 

As funny as it may sound to many, you will often realise the Power in Prayer and  need For Lord in your adversaries and lowest hits of your life.

Dear Lord,

Thank you for your forgiveness, for the many times you gave me a chance to return to YOU. This lent, I want to make You alone the centre of my life. Help me Lord to accept Your will. This prayer I make to You in the Most Holy name of Christ Jesus. AMEN.

God bless you .
