2/4/19 Weekly Reflection
Feb 4, 2019
We greet you in the name of our Lord Christ Jesus.
May the light of the Holy Spirit of our Lord, the Lord of love, mercy, and compassion shine upon all of us and may He grant us the knowledge, patience and wisdom to understand the richness of His teachings and missions which are intended to nurture our hearts and our lives.
“Today is holy to the LORD your God" (Neh 8:9)
" Let love be sincere" (Romans 12:9)
True love commits sacrifices for the sake of others in God's love.
Each day we submit to you, O Lord,
All our souls and all our being
For, we know you are with and in us
In ev'rything we are doing and serving
When we wake up ev'ry morning, O Lord, each day
Thanks be to You for watching over me,
You are by our sides, always.
In temptation or in uncertainty.
When anxiety and trouble crush down on us
And darkness conquers over our mind and vision
You are the guiding light for us to see,
Shining forth to our direction and destination.
Each day, O Lord, thanks be to You,
All protection, graces, and blessings, you're planting
Into our thoughts, our dreams, and our planning
Into our heart and our ev'rything.
Each day, O Lord, we lift up our pure heart,
And in our souls, our gratitude and sincerity,
Our sincere prayer and meditation, to You
The wholeness of us, consecrated, earnestly
Yes, the wholeness of us, consecrated, completely,
To you, in ev'ryday of our lowly lives
You gift us love, you gift us wisdom, abundantly,
You gift us vision of eternal light.
Though if our worldly lives could span thousand and thousand years
Still, how could we repay, O Lord, how could we repay?
For, our lives are blessed with Your fullness, always
Like the sun rising in the East each morning
Like ocean waves dancing to the shore endlessly,
You are O Lord, you are the blood flowing in our hearts,
The air we are breathing ev'ry second.
How can we live without you, Lord, how can we live without you,
Like river water longing to the ocean
Like fish and water, bees and flowers, inseparable,
Yes, in separable!
For Your sake, O my sweet Lord, we are conforming
Conforming our will to yours
Carrying our crosses to serve you and your children
Walking your way humbly and blamelessly
as a representative for you, O Lord,
as a representative for you until the end of our time.
