The Gift of Pausing

THE GIFT OF PAUSING

Pausing gives you new eyes.
It refreshes your spirit.
It is where heart can meet Heart,
Where thoughts and words seize,
Where speechless words take over.
Where lover meets Lover,
Where God stoops down and impregnates His beloved,
Where He offers his companionship and strength, and invites surrender,
Where new life begins its journey
Where transformation takes over.

PAUSE. RECEIVE, YOUR GOD.
ACCEPT HIS PRICELESS GIFT.

O Holy Spirit, Pray Thee

 

O Holy Spirit, Love Divine
Animating Spirit, for Thee I pine.
Penetrating Spirit, all praise is Thine.
Encircling Spirit, in me shine.
Enfleshing Spirit, with me entwine.
Healing Spirit, Will You be mine?
Birthing Spirit, Birth within Your love divine.

A Burning, Loving Heart

A burning, loving heart
With outstretched arms
Our welcoming God is.

A burning, loving heart
With outstretched arms
Calls, invites, sets free.

A burning, loving heart
With outstretched arms
Never abandons, always loves.

A burning, loving heart
With outstretched arms
Embraces one, embraces all.

A burning, loving heart
With outstretched arms
Walks and converses with loyal hearts.

A burning, loving heart
With outstretched arms
Is always there, is ever near.

O thank you, burning, loving heart!
Where would we be without You?

Silently

Silently, silently I come
With thoughts and praises
With wisdom lines and paragraphs.

Silently, silently I come
Be open. Be alert. Be peaceful.
Be an open vessel. Receive.

Silently, silently I come
With courage and boldness
With heart opened to proclaim

Silently, silently I come
Cast your care on me, I will bless.
Through you I will speak.

Silently, silently I come
Your fear I remove
Your confidence I increase.

Silently, silently I come
My beloved, My friend, My love
I bless so you can bless.

Silently, silently I come
Enter deeply, I invite
What bliss I give.

Silently, silently I come
Live in and through Me
Walk in My Spirit’s Light.

Silently, silently I come
“All shall be well”
“All shall be well”.

Jesus, breath of my life, I praise and thank You.

Love Is The Answer

For rough and difficult times

For ungrateful and misunderstood times

For times of weakness and doubts

For reaching out to poor and helpless

For inner light and peace

For reaching the unloveable

For growth and conversion

For truth and integrity

For deep friendship with God

For a forgiving heart

For bearing our crosses with Christ.

LOVE IS THE ANSWER!!!

Hold Me In Your Love

Hold me in Your love
My Savior, My God
Lift me up when I fall
Ease my tears when I call

Hold me in Your love
When You seem hard to find
When my heart is blind
And You still remain so kind.

Hold me in Your love
My all compassionate One
When discouragement will come
When to fear and anxiety I succumb.

Hold me in Your love
O gracious Spirit Dove
Teach me patience from above
My hope and peace return, O Love.

Hold me in Your love
New life, please impart
Lack of confidence, please depart.
May new life soon start.

Hold me in Your love
May solid faith re-bless my life.
May love cast out strife.
May kindness overcome the knife.

Hold me in Your love
Surrendering to Your will,
Letting go so You can fill
Working in and for You, please fulfill.

Prayer to Holy Spirit

Spirit of God rush through my veins, heart and life.
Please give me a surge of your electrifying energy
And joyful Spirit
I love You. I love You. Be ever-near.

Hover over me in the storms of life.
May Your Spirit overcome my strife.
May Divine Strength be my grace.
Divine Love on my forehead trace.

Hover over me Spirit Divine
Thy healing, encircle and enshrine
This weak spouse of Thine.

Hover over me, my God and my all
Our hearts be one, this I call
In surrendering love I give
Hand-in-hand, I desire to live.

Hover over me, flow through me
Penetrating, refreshing so I can be
A waterfall of love for Thee.

Hover over me SEVENFOLD GIFT
PENETRATING SPIRIT, be my lift.
When I fall in weakness,
Draw me up in meekness.

Hover over me DIVINE LIGHT,
Shine through me ever-bright
So all can experience a glimmer of Your sight.

Glorious Tomb

Tomb closed, soon to be empty,
Lord Jesus rest,
And let me rest in you.

Tomb closed, soon to be empty,
Sacred Body,
O what pain you went through for us.

Tomb closed, soon to be empty,
Your death brought hope
And new life.

Tomb closed, soon to be empty,
I bow in thanksgiving for Your great
And faithful love.

Tomb closed, soon to be empty,
All creation
Awaits your Resurrection.

Tomb closed, soon to be empty,
My love,
My God,
My all.
