Trust As You Cry Out

“Ask and you shall receive.”
Receive as God lovingly gives.
Gives, however, He feels you need.
Take Courage, He Is very near.

Will you accept suffering for awhile?
I hear your cries.
Persevere, My Love will carry you.
I’ll come, and lift your “drooping spirit”.
You know, I never let you down.

Will you keep trusting Me to assist you.
I have given you some of the help you need.
Next you will find peace of spirit and thanksgiving.
Be aware of My goodness to you, and above all My love.

Spouse of God

I am YOUR Beloved.
YOU called me to be thus,
Unworthy though I be.
What do YOU see in me,
That I don’t see in myself?

All I ask is to grow more deeply in love with YOU.
My Divine Spouse, may I never, never fall out of love
With YOU, who has been my constant Lover,
My life and my all.
Where would I be without YOU?

YOU have led me, drawn me throughout life
To places I would never have dreamed possible,
To be more than I could have imagined.
I have been graced to serve YOUR children, adults, sick/dying,
As a spiritual guide, leader in parish and health care.

With a humble, grateful heart, I come before YOU
Asking that YOUR leadership and love will keep me going,
In all the good times and rough ones.
Thanks for the past and what the future holds.
Just, I ask YOU, keep me close and always faithful to YOU, my Spouse.

United With Christ Crucified

O Christ Crucified, how can I unite more with Thee?

I desire to be healed from what binds me so I can experience greater closeness come Easter Day.  You know me through and through as Ps. 139 states.  I don’t want to hold on to what keeps me from a close relationship with You.  Weakness, frustration, pain, suffering, grief has taken hold of me once again.  I love You so much yet I get trapped over and over.  Please let me feel and experience Your Healing Presence as I strive to be aware of Your deep sufferings.  Once again, I unite my whole being with You, my Beloved.  Help me break down my barriers and free my longing spirit and that of others who are struggling to stay ever close to You.  Christ Crucified, thank You ahead of time.   Amen.

Let Go and Forgive

Let go and forgive
The many roads past.

Let go and forgive
Those who wounded
And scarred you.

Let go and forgive
The negativity that often blinds you.

Let go and forgive
Yourself, often fragile and tense.

Let go and forgive
The lack of acceptance of yourself.

Let go and forgive
The many troubled waters of your life.

Let to and forgive
Your struggle with inner anger
And depression.

Let to and forgive
Your fears,
And often restless spirit.

Let go and forgive
Your holding on to the hurt
Of your own and others’ high expectations.

Let go and forgive
The circumstance that keep coming back
To blind your thinking.

Let go and forgive,
So My forgiving heart can be yours.

Let go and forgive,
As you have beautifully begun.

Let go and keep forgiving.
My new life is My gift to you.

Let to and keep forgiving.
I love your vulnerability and honesty.

Let go and keep forgiving.
It’s the way to My happiness and peace.

Keep Coming Lord

Keep coming Lord; keep coming.

You are my life source and energy.

Keep coming Lord; keep coming.

Touch my inmost being.  Set me free.

Keep coming Lord; keep coming.

I can do nothing without You.

Keep coming Lord; keep coming.

Walk with me.  Lead me.  Use me.

Keep coming Lord; keep coming.

Whatever You ask, I’m at Your service.

Keep coming Lord; keep coming.

Pick me up gently when I falter.

Keep coming Lord; keep coming.

My Companion, my Friend, my Love.

God of my life, keep coming.

Be near in my dyings and risings.

God of my life, keep coming.

to the lowly in me,  and the lowly around.

God of my life, keep coming.

You probe me and You know me.

All praise and glory to You. Amen!

Divine Physician–A Prayer

O Divine Physician, You heal the ills of so many.

Please help all Your Doctors who serve You in the care of their patients.

Inspire them to know the needs of each person they serve.

Help them determine the right course of action to bring about the healing they seek,

May that be medicine, emotional strength, support in dealing with sickness, whatever else is necessary.

Guide their minds and hearts in helping others,  and protect their own well-being.

May Your Healing Hands be their Healing Hands.

May Your encouragement be their encouragement,

May Your healing touch be their healing touch.

O Divine Physician, thank You for the Doctors You bring into our lives.

How fortunate and blessed that You give us the Doctors we need most at the specific times in our life.

I praise You O Divine Physician.  How You love us and our Doctors.

Water Symphony

Wave hitting against the shore and sea wall

What music to the ear.

It flows gently, then picks up speed,

flowing, flopping, slapping,as it comes to water’s edge.

Sunlight twinkles, sparkles and bubbles in water and melodious waves

As they sing their melody to all who will listen.

Its unique melody brings joy, peace and a dancing heart

To the relaxed bystander who sits quietly, listening.

Its Creator is praised and glorified

As the water symphony goes on and on

Doing what it is called to do.

Angel at My Side

Angel at my side,
Be ever near, not far.

Angel at my side,
Drawn me closer,
And closer to God.

Angel at my side,
Lead me in my waiting,
And unknowing.

Angel at my side,
I need peace,
And humble joy.

Angel at my side,
Help me see God’s love and healing.

Angel at my side,
Bring happy labor to my life.

Angel at my side,
Inspire and guide this giving heart.

Choose To Proclaim

Stained glass at St John the Baptist's Anglica...

Choose, choose, choose, and proclaim.
Proclaim Christ in thought, word and deed.
He leads one to live each day in His LOVE.
What a difference it makes in attitude and action.
Surprises accompany loving hearts.

Choose, choose, choose, and proclaim.
Proclaim with wisdom and actions,
to a hungry world in need of kind hearts.
Working with Christ at the center,
shines further then we may realize.

Choose, choose, choose, and proclaim.
Proclaim Christ’s Goodness to you
by greeting all, with LOVE HIMSELF.
Looking beyond the looks, to the deeper person,
who desires our care and God’s love in us.

Choose, choose, choose, and proclaim.
Seek His love and deeper companionship,
as you pray and simply bring Christ life
to a hungry friend, family, and neighborhood.
He rewards our choice for Him, our desire to be used by Him in a closer walk and outreach.

Father, My Father

Where would we be without You?
You are our life-breath.
You walk hand-in-hand with willing souls.
You encircle our every effort.
You reach out to our wounded heart.
You find joy in reaching out to drooping spirits.
You send special persons to cheer us.
Your all-embracing love flowers beauty and new life.
When our hope dwindles or life throws a curve,
You bring light to spark new flames in our heart.
What great happiness this brings to humble hearts.
Father, my Father, Your faithfulness delights us.

Sr. La Donna M. Pinkelman, OSF
