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.

THE LOST SHEEP: LK 15 REFLECTION BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

And the Pharisees and scribes murmured saying, "This man receives sinners and eats
with them."  So he told them this parable, "What man of you having a hundred sheep,
if he has lost one of them leaves the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the one
which is lost until he finds it?"   Lk 15


*  Do we have the courage to condemn our brothers and sisters who stray?  Even Lord
Jesus seeks for the lost soul!  This is one of the greatest parable written in the gospel.
Sometimes, we could act as a Pharisee or a scribe judging as an outsider.  When we see
our brethren sin, then instead of condemning him or her, why not lead him to the right
track gently.  Then we can rightly say we are true followers of Jesus.

No one has the right to judge; only God will judge the disposition of one's soul!  Go and
find your lost brothers.  Just like Jesus, go after the one who is lost.  Embrace him just like
Blessed Mother Mary who perpetually aids those who are in danger of perdition.  No one
is dispensable, all could have the potential of salvation!

Look at the adulterous woman in danger of death from stoning!  Jesus raised her up and said,"
"Go and sin no more."  Yes, Jesus restored her dignity and at the same time encourage her not to sin again.  Let us start to look for the lost souls and offer it to Jesus!  We will never know:  We may
be the one who are lost and have a need for salvation!

“Be Still” Reflection by Prayer Aid (Jane Pimenta)

He says, "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."  Ps 46:10
Be still!   I met a lady whose marriage was rather rocky – several times she had left home and several times her husband brought her back with an apology.  Then one day she left and was determined not to go back.  She had no job, a small girl to care for.  Her parents took her into their home and cared for her and her daughter.  No matter what I said to her, she had it fixed in her mind God did not love her.  A couple of months down the line, her brother was able to find her work through his contacts, and to her great surprise the salary was more than she expected!   2 years down the line she is married, earning well – and is out of a bad marriage!   The LORD worked it out using her brother…. Her place of work….Things may look bad but Jesus says “Be still”. (Excellent testimony!  Be still.  God will answer our prayer at the right time according to His will.  Praise God Almighty!).

LET EVENING COME#FORWARDED BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL




LET EVENING COME

Let the light of late afternoon
shine through chinks in the barn, moving
up the bales as the sun moves down.
Let the cricket take up chafing
as a woman takes up her needles
and her yarn. Let evening come.
Let the dew collect on the hoe abandoned
in long grass. Let evening come.
Let the fox go back to its sandy den.
Let the wind die down. Let the shed
go black inside. Let evening come...
Let it come as it will, and don't
be afraid. God does not leave us
comfortless, so let evening come.

Serve God without fear: Lk 1:73-75: Reflection by Cynthia Abegail

“The oath that he swore to our ancestor Abraham, to grant us, that we, being rescued from the hands of our enemies, might serve him without fear, in holiness and righteousness before him all our days.”  (Lk 1: 73-75).


The Lord never forget His covenant; he never break His promises unlike us.  It is just right that we serve God with all of our hearts and minds in fullness and dedication without murmuring.  No fear!   Because if God is in us, what is there to fear?  The King is beside us, backing us up along the way.  It is us who stray, it is us who forget holiness.


To serve a holy God, we must also strive to holiness.  Although we may fail, we stand up again and say Sorry!  It’s not enough to say sorry.  We must have a conviction to be faithful.  With one whiff of the wind, we are back to ground zero again.  It’s not easy but if we pray wholeheartedly and commit ourself unequivocally; by His grace, we will be whole again.
