Jn 7:38 "Whoever believes in me, rivers of living water will flow from within them"

"Whoever believes in me, as Scripture says, rivers of living of water will flow from within them." Jn 7:38


It is not us, or our works will issue out this living water.  It was very clear, believe first that "God sent His Only Begotten Son into the world so that whoever believes in Him will have eternal life."  (Jn 3:16).


Do not worry too much about the need to do everything in your own power.  Just believe and abide in Lord Jesus, as the Heavenly Father in Scriptures.  All are vanity!  There is no way to the Father except through Jesus Christ alone.  When one truly believes in his heart, then oases of living water will flow from within him.  Why?  The reason is when we believe in what the Heavenly Father says, the barrier of the original sin is broken in our baptism.  The Lord lives in us, in our hearts and in our souls.  When the Lord is present in our life, the well of living water flows unending and generously.


How?  Let us not ask this question!  There is no how with the Lord.  Nothing is impossible for him.  What seems unreal and difficult is nothing.  Just like when Sarah doubted that she is going to bear a son, God Almighty said, "Is there anything too wonderful for the Lord?"  Nothing!  God Almighty is the Author of everything, the Ruler of Everything!


There is only one thing asked of us and do we need to complain?  Let us pray that God will open all of our hearts to receive this wonderful gift of living water.  Thank you Lord!  In Jesus, Mary, Joseph and all of angels and saints, Amen.

OUR FAITHFUL GOD: REFLECTION FORWARDED BY PRAYER AID

REFLECTIONS

Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; He is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands. Deut 7:9 God loves us and His love can never be taken away from us. He is waiting for us to make a response to His love. He is asking us to love Him first, not to let people, things and the entertainment of the world come between Him and us. When we begin to avoid sin and look for opportunities to serve Him, we will know that we are making a response to God’s love. Let us forgive all those who have hurt us and pray that God bless them more than He blesses us! Let us ask Him for the grace to be humble and available to His people at all times, like He is available to us at all times. In this way we show Him that we love Him and then we can expect to be richly blessed.
(God is always good! Thanks Jane Pimenta for a very good reflection as always). New World.

AUTUMN RHAPSODY: POEM BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL





Autumn Rhapsody

A gust of wind from the north east,
Inherent charm caught his eyes
Bustling breeze woo the moonlight
O" the night rivalled the rising sun!

Leaves scarlet dizzy as tangerine,
Slowly decayed to way of winter
Zeal of heart zoom down weary
Epic love no more glimmer...

Dreams alive now pale not rosy,
Flowers gone yet leaves browny
Cold wind, no flame but misty
Not humid so dry O' so dreary.

Shall I compare thee to autumn?
Trees shed leaves as doldrum
Scatter thy fragrance as night
To all flowers that alight...

Shall I compare thee to winter?
Heart cold as snow that wither
Flakes that melt her heart aye
As fickle as the fig so shy...

Or shall I compare thee to spring?
Like a bee that scatters pollen
Lovely flowers rival so solemn
Petals flicker without emblem!

No, I'll compare thee to summer,
So alive and carefree and gather
Remnant of flowers that abide
Adiu to autumn, I love summer!

But summer left the other day,
The warmth is a dream today
Wish summer comes back again
Bid goodbye to autumn of rain!

THE POWER OF GOD'S NAME (PSALM 8): REFLECTION BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL


Yahweh, our Lord,
how majestic is your name throughout the world!
Whoever keeps singing of your majesty higher than the heavens
even though from mouth of children, or of babes in arms,
you make him a fortress, firm against your foes
to subdue the enemy and the rebel.
I look up at your heavens, shaped by your fingers,
at the moon and the stars you set firm---
what are human beings that you spare a thought for them,
or a child of Adam that you care for him?

                                                                       Ps 8: 1-4



*  The name of God spells majesty and glory.  It is just inherent
in God's Name.  Therefore, whenever the praise and worship of
God is happening, the diffusing of God's mighty transcendence
occurs.  Whenever the singing of praises resound throughout
the earth, God's glory sparkles like a juniper and coral, luminous
and pure!

A soul that is in love with God becomes a fortress against God's
enemies.  Why?  It is because that soul becomes engulfed in the
furnace of God's love.  When a soul becomes one with God, that
soul breathes the will of God, the likes of God.  Hence, this
soul is serious in battle against God's adversary.  The soul becomes
a forerunner of St John the Baptist, the one who prepared the
Way of the Lord.

The psalmist also noted that God cares for man and he wonders why.
"What are human beings that you spare a thought for them?"
God walked with man throughout history.  With its ups and downs,
God gently invites his people to come back to Him from the lore of
idolatry.  Idolatry is the camouflage of the enemy!  When the animals
camouflage just like a snake in a desert, it will go unnoticed.  This is
the same as idolatry.  Idolatry is masked as something pleasing but
it will lead finally to ruin---  idolatry to money, fame, vanity of the
world, vices as gambling and prostitution, the glamour and sparkle of
material world.  This could also be idolatry to paranormal activity,
psychic experiences, superstition, horoscopes and anything that harms
life as abortion, euthanasia, etc.  Be vigilant!  Come back, repent
from all evil in order to live for eternity.

ALWAYS KEEP YOUR GUARD IN PRAYER FORWARDED BY PRAYER AID




ALWAYS KEEP YOUR GUARD IN PRAYER

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name. Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit. The Lord sustains the humble but casts the wicked to the ground. Ps 147:3-6

Today, sit quietly and place your hand in Jesus’ Hand, and feel the security of His grasp, feel His acceptance, and His peace flow out to you. Do not be in a hurry to leave –wait! He knows your name, He knows every need of yours He is aware of your anxieties, and He is deeply aware that you have no one to help you with the burden you are carrying. There is no need for words between you and the Lord – He knows everything about you, everything that is gnawing at you He already knows.

Be quiet, hold on to His hand, and feel His love, and strength. When you have to leave, take Him with you, everywhere you go today. He will enjoy sitting at your desk, watching you work, maybe even guiding you the few times you are faltering, He will help you make decisions. Enjoy His Presence today. Then take him home with you; He will help you get all your work done.

THE BAMBOO TREE@FORWARDED BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

Once upon a time, in the heart of the Western Kingdom, lay a
beautiful garden and in the cool of the day, the Master of the garden
was going for a walk. Of all the dwellers in the garden , the most beautiful
and beloved was a gracious and noble bamboo.
Often when Wind came to revel in the garden, Bamboo would throw aside
his dignity, he would sway and dance merrily, leaping, jumping, swaying and
tossing in joyous abandon. He would lead the great dance of the garden which
was the real joy of his Master's heart.
One day, the Master spoke: "Bamboo, Bamboo, I would use you." His voice
came low: "Master, I am ready. Do with what you will." "Bamboo, the Master's
voice was grave, "I would be obliged to take you and cut you down." Great horror
shook bamboo, "No, not that, oh no! Beloved bamboo, the Master's voice grew
graver still, "if I do not take you and cut you down, then I cannot use you."
There came a whisper, "Master, if you cannot use me unless you cut me down, then
do your will and cut." Bamboo shivered with terrible expectancy. The Master said,
"Bamboo, I would divide you in two and cut out your heart."
So did the Master take his beloved Bamboo and cut him down and hacked off his
leaves and branches and divided him in two and cut out his heart. And then, lifting
him gently, he carried him to a spring of running water in the midst of the Master's
dry fields.
One end of the broken bamboo, he laid in the spring; the other in the water channel
which led into the Master's field. The spring sang, "Welcome!" The water raced joyously
down Bamboo's torn body. Then the rice was planted and the days went past. The shoots
grew and the harvest came.
In that day, was Bamboo so glorious in his beauty, yet more glorious in his brokenness and his
humility. For, in his beauty, Bamboo was life abundant. Yet, in his brokenness, he became
a source of abundant life for his Master's world.

NIGHT SONG AT AMALFI#Forwarded By Cynthia Abegail

Night Song at Amalfi


I asked the heaven of stars
What should I give my love
It answered me with silence,
Silence above.

I asked the darkened sea
Down where the fishes go---
It answered me with silence,
Silence below.

Oh, I could give him weeping,
Or I could give him song---
But how can I give silence
My whole life long.
