The Lord is my Shepherd: Ps 23 Reflection by Cynthia Abeg

”The Lord is my Shepherd, there is nothing I lack.  In green pastures, you let me graze, to safe waters you lead me.”  (Ps 23:1-2).




These verses are classic in the Holy Scriptures.  We can recite it by heart and it always ring a bell for us.  What does a good shepherd does to his sheep?  He protects them, he rears them and love them.  In a similar way, the Lord protect us from danger.  He nourishes us and provides us for all our needs.


Unknowingly, God protects us anywhere we go.  He searches for us when we stray and He never gives up on us!  His love for us is faithful and eternal.

 

“Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins?  And not one of them is forgotten before God.  But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows”  Luke 12:6-7
Jesus knows our situation is difficult, yet He asks us not to worry!  He loves us deeply, and intimately, He knows everything about us, He is aware of things in our lives that even we may not be aware of.  I find this very comforting, if in times of worry and anxiety we turn to Him, and surrender the situation to Him, He will lead us in a perfect way.  Let us be quiet and try and understand that God’s love will lead us, and protect us in any and every situation.   “Jesus I surrender everything to you, you take care of it” (Thanks Jane!  We are sometimes plagued by worries, but remember the woman with hemorrhage?  She kept the faith and she was healed.  Superb reflection).  Cynthia Abegail for New World

A VERY NICE STORY FORWARDED BY ABRAHAM G

A VERY NICE STORY

Once upon a time there was a bunch of tiny frogs.... who arranged a running competition.The goal was to reach the top of a very high tower.

A big crowd had gathered around the tower to see the race and cheer on the contestants....
The race began....Honestly, no one in crowd really believed that the tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower.You heard statements such as:
"Oh, WAY too difficult!!""They will NEVER make it to the top.""Not a chance that they will succeed. The tower is too high!"
The tiny frogs began collapsing. One by one....Except for those, who in a fresh tempo, were climbing higher and higher....The crowd continued to yell, "It is too difficult!!!
No one will make it!"More tiny frogs got tired and gave up....But ONE continued higher and higher and higher....This one wouldn't give up!At the end everyone else had given up climbing the tower.
Except for the one tiny frog who, after a big effort, was the only one who reached the top!THEN all of the other tiny frogs naturally wanted to know how this one frog managed to do it?
A contestant asked the tiny frog how he had found the strength to succeed and reach the goal?
It turned out....That the winner was DEAF!!!!
The wisdom of this story is:Never listen to other people's tendencies to be negative or pessimistic.... because they take your most wonderful dreams and wishes away from you -- the ones you have in your heart!Always think of the power words have.Because everything you hear and read will affect your actions!Therefore:ALWAYS be....POSITIVE!And above all:Be DEAF when people tell YOU that you cannot fulfill your dreams!
Always think:God and I can do this.

Thank you Lord


ISA 48:2

CAMIGUIN ISLAND BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL


CAMIGUIN ISLAND


Aboard the ship, along the rocky seas
Gaze at leeward side, rock open gales
Princess of Orient roars and bounces
Mirth in the breeze as shore awaits---



The island vies with beauty that abounds
Not only by waters but across the land--
The plumes of the birds that fly and arise
Rainbow in colour, a delight for my eyes!



Rocks of granite, quite basalt as O' dawn
Arrayed in pathway as I enter and swoon
Entered the nipa hut so tender and frail,
Come with me as the scent of nard bells!

Do you like to see volcano near the mount?
Simmering smoke shoots as a spoiled child!
Elegant in bearing, boiling, brash not cool
As it spews hot; a fiery furnace red as bull...



Have I seen the paradise near a waterfall?
Gushes not trickles the water as if a wall
O' beauty, never will I be in want again--
A spectacle that lasted a lifetime of rain!



Camiguin island, thus carries its name,
Holiday etched; the wonder of a place
On the eastern side of sea at its byways
Come, fulfill the yearning of the days!

GOD'S WILL: POEM FORWARDED BY NISHA THOMAS

GOD'S WILL: POEM BY NISHA THOMAS
(We are republishing Nisha Thomas' beautiful and meaningful poem GOD'S WILL

God has a Will for everyone’s future.
He has a Will for someone to be a doctor.
He has a Will for someone to be a lawyer.
He has a Will for someone to do His work.
He has a Will for each of us he created.
God has a Will for everyone’s future.
Whether we know it or not, he wants to show us His Will.
But there’s something preventing us from knowing God’s Will;
It’s our ignorance and unwillingness to know God’s will for our future.
It’s our tendency to holdback when God tries to lead us in His path.
God has a Will for everyone’s future.
To get to the promised land that he has prepared for us.
The journey will be hard and long.
It will take us through a lot of pain and suffering.
But, we have to be patient and strong.
We have to trust God, have faith,
And know that He will never break His promise.
We have to wait for the right time
God has a Will for everyone’s future.
Knowing God’s Will is going to help us know that we are following the right path.
Doing His Will is going to save us from sorrow and death.
It will bring us abundant joy and peace,
And will lead us into Eternal Salvation .
God has a Will for everyone’s future.
The World would be a better place,
If every one of us knew God’s Will and followed His Will,
There would be no regrets, no going back and changing decisions,
No doubts, no fear and most of all,
No more Sinning.

PSALM 91: GOD PROTECTS: PICTURE BY CHRISTIAN IMAGES



GOD SENDS ANGELS TO PROTECT 

US WHERE EVER WE ARE!  ONLY 

HAVE FAITH IN HIM AND IN HIS

POWER AND SALVATION!

ST MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL: PICTURE

ST MICHAEL, PRAY FOR US!!! Defend us in the hour of battle.  Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him and do Thou O' Prince of the Heavenly Host by the power of God, cast down into hell satan and all evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.  Amen.

“My people do not understand (Is 1:3): Reflection by Prayer Aid (Jane Pimenta)

The ox knows its owner, and the donkey its master’s crib; but Israel does not know, my people do not understand.  Is 1:3
Worry and anxiety, fear can take away our peace of mind and block our vision of Jesus.  It can cause us to forget that in every challenging situation, the only person we need is Jesus.  Jesus sadly says that each animal knows its Master, but we do not know Him.  We do not know how much He loves us, how much He wants to lift our burdens.  Let us give it all to the Lord and ask Him to take care of it…(We concur!  There are times when we are anxious about everything.  Then, we realise that everything is easier if we let Jesus lift our burden.  Superb insight.  Thanks Jane.  (Cynthia Abegail for New World
