Sweetest Lord, make me appreciative of the dignity of my high vocation, and its many responsibilities. Never permit me to disgrace it by giving way to coldness, unkindness, or impatience.

The Lord is saying: Be afraid of nothing but to do my Father's bidding, for your safety lies in His will for your life. You know His will for your life. It is not difficult it is easy, yet it takes a decision. The decision is the most difficult step. Once the decision is made my yoke becomes easy. Choose to believe my word, choose to love, choose to praise, choose to walk with me, for then you will be walking in the light, you will be walking in freedom and peace. You will be walking in truth and the truth will make you free. Oh !how glorious is this freedom!!.



Psalm 81: 13-16 Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, and Israel had walked in my ways! I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries. The haters of the LORD should have submitted themselves unto him: but their time should have endured for ever. He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.

John 8:

12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life

31 ....., If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.


Proverbs 9:

10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

11 For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased.









The Tears of Jesus

The heavens extol your praises
O God of hosts

Your majesty in cloth of gold
sit in triumphant splendour
surveying with rapturous love, the earth,
Your" footstool"
we who have caused you so much sorrow
humble ourselves into subserviant insignificance at your feet

Your loving tender and forgiving arms stretch out to us
who are no more than "grass dried up"
You weep at our misery
Your tears falling every one a waterfall drenching each desert place within our hearts of stone

The deserts are satisfied and look to your light
which has long awaited their upturned faces and so there is life, life in abundance
Your life in our hearts
O King of Kings
Glory and praise to you forever

The earth in us is softer now and shoots spring up
The flowers bloom in profuse coloration and delightedly
send their perfume for your pleasure

We thank you for the wonder of your tears
O Lord our God.
