Heart Cries!

Heart Cries!

Can anyone hear my cries?
Can anyone see my tears?
Can anyone feel my sighs?
Is there anyone who understands my fears?

Help me, O God, I pray!
Please say that You’ll stay!
Do a miracle in my life…
‘Cause I really need to survive!!


A Big Fellow Like Me

[From a Two-Year-Old Boy]

"Heavenly Father, I do not understand what is going on, but I know I need Your help.

My Daddy and my Mummy love me very, very much, I know…but they are often not with me when I am awake. Grandpa and Grandma take care of me. Sometimes I am so confused…they give me one set of rules to follow which is so different from that of Daddy’s and Mummy’s. What should I do? At times, I work it out my way so that I get what I want. I heard Mummy say that this is called ‘manipulation’. But Grandpa calls it ‘cleverness’. Who cares what they think…as long as I get what I want, I don’t care what they call it!

Still, I wish that I didn’t have to cope with so many big people all at once! I need their attention but not their rules…too many…even for a big fellow like me."

For Meditation and Pray:
Matthew 18:5-6


Home Is Where Jesus Is

On the first night of a 5-day quiet retreat with a small group of friends, I missed my husband and our 3 children deeply. Just before I slept, the Lord asked me lovingly,

"What do you want Me to do for you?" I replied,

"Lord, I want to go home..." Immediately, He said,

"All right, you are home!" I was surprised and queried,

"What do you mean?" He then explained to me,

"Where I am is home...and I am here with you."

Thus He imprinted in my heart that night not to think of home as the place where my late parents used to live or where my present family gather. Wherever He is present is my home and He will never leave me or forsake me, I know.

Meditation: Hebrews 13:5

"....God has said, 'Never will I leave you;  never will I forsake you.'"
