Gaze of God

The Gaze of God pierces me through.
It opens my eyes as I gaze back.
It allows me to be vulnerable before Him,
For the gaze is full of love, helping to be free.

The Gaze of God pierces me through.
What a gift! His eyes are filled with love,
Speaking words of wisdom, words of welcomed encouragement,
And helps me know I am all right.

The Gaze of God pierces me through.
He makes me fearless in His presence,
Restful, peaceful, and loved.
I want to receive it and give it back in return.

The Gaze of God pierces me through.
He helps me look at myself with honesty and truth,
Or just enjoy His loving encounter.
Thank you, oh my Beloved, for gazing on me.

Crossing The Water

CROSSING THE WATER WITH JESUS
Hand-in-hand, He envelops me
Hand-in-hand, clearly I see
Hand-in-hand, I gaze on Him
Hand-in-hand, deeply He speaks
Hand-in-hand, my heart leaps

CROSSING THE WATER WITH JESUS
Hand-in-hand, loving tears flow
Hand-in-hand, I’ve never felt so close
Hand-in-hand, my Love and I embrace
Hand-in-hand, my fears erase
Hand-in-hand, His touch heals.

CROSSING THE WATER WITH JESUS
What joy!
What healing!
What peace!
What love!
What depth!

Climbing The Tree

I climb the tree to see Jesus, and find Him gazing straight through me, penetrating my life clear through.  He speaks to my heart as no one has before; speaks to me in my sadness, distractions, worries and concerns.   He eases my pain, my doubts and gives me a sense of direction; where now my anxious heart becomes a hopeful heart, a ready-heart, ready to give, to give what God is giving me to give, a heart more deeply in love with my Divine Shepherd.

“My Love Story With God”

May my heart beat with Yours.
May my strength be Your Strength.
May my energy flow with Yours.
May my spirit be infused with Your Spirit.
May my pain be united with Your Pain.
May my activity center in Yours.
May my love be blessed with Your Love.
May my life be fashioned in Yours.
May my speech be graced with Your Speech.
May my being proclaim Your Being
Amen to my ALL-IN-ALL!

Grasping Hands—A Deep Prayer

O God, You grasp my hand. Firmly I grasp Yours. In this loving, tender grasp, You give me strength and I receive Yours, not just for myself, but also reaching out to give Your hand to another. The circle keeps growing, drawing strength in unbroken love, Your Love. Healing and strength in Your hands brings a circle of peace and joy, lighting the faces of all in a beautiful symphony of praise and friendship. O GRASPING HANDS! WHAT A MIRACLE!

O Holy Trinity

O Holy Trinity, all praise to You
One in three, not fully grasping
Deeper faith I am asking.

O Holy Trinity, all praise to You
One in three encircle me
My center ever be.

O Holy Trinity, all praise to You
One in three, bless us all
And keep us from a fall.

O Holy Trinity, all praise to You
One in three, breath of love
Breathe in me from above.

O Holy Trinity, all praise to You
One in Three, our path enlighten
Our sparks of love brighten.

O Holy Trinity, all praise to You
One in three, Your love we share
With the Church and all who care.

O Holy Trinity, all praise to You
One in three, sanctify our being
So one day, YOU, we will be seeing.

Thorns of Life

Lift up your drooping spirits, My dear ones.

Life is a combination of ups and downs.

Some are greater then others, especially the down-times.

Know you are not alone—I am with you.  Can you hold My Hand?

Believe, your burdens are taken to My Heart.

Give all to Me.  They are diamonds of strength and conversion.

If you bear them with Me, I will brighten your spirit.

I will also help you be beacons of light for others.

Take courage, My heavy-laden child.  Keep pushing forward.

Never give up on yourself or My own thorn-crowned head.

Surrender all and you will know My peace, healing, and strength.

Thorns of life, I am leading.

O My Beloved

O Dear God, I find myself  wondering, what is happening?

My life keeps me in the shadows of Your love.

It seems I am unable lately to relate deeply to You.

My sorrows and grief keep me in semi-darkness.

My ability to sit still for longer periods of time,

Frustrate and debilitate my concentration and feeling.

My set-back in health, in the midst of it all,

Seems to have frozen my prayer and work ability.

I don’t stop praying, but only in word,

Repeating over and over the same prayers.

My feelings seem numb, constantly asking Your help.

Will You come back and let me experience Your presence more.

Please let me experience a lifting of my spirit, once again.

Your lowly beloved, seeks a deep renewal in You.

Take over this longing spouse of Yours.

Give new energy and strength of  heart, mind and spirit.

Here I am, I lift up all that I am and going through,

For Your greater honor and glory.  Amen.

Sr. La Donna M. Pinkelman, OSF
