The Holy Spirit of GodThe Holy Spirit's like the windThe Holy Spirit of God by cereal-in-a-bowl
He blows wherever He may please
Those who seek Christ Jesus
shall find their souls at ease
for they are in the shelter of God's holy peace
He makes His presence known to all
from thick green shrub to trees enormous and tall
He blesses the sprouts and seeds on earth sown
Yea, to those who seek Him, He makes His presence known
His grace and mercy house and dwells
where hands outreach to Him Who helps
when He touches the hands who seek
He strengthens he whose spirit weak
Yea, He lifts up the humble
and brings down the proud
He restores man's faith in their human doubt
He shows His face to His holy ones
and shrouds Himself from those who find worship in material things
As He touches the grounds below
He makes them holy
as He moves along
if you would press
your ears upon the ground
you can hear the sentient beings
of spring sing praise
to God Yahweh Sabaoth
The Holy Spirit
is God's loving and healing touch
where He touches
The earth below is
In the valley of the Lord my God (Jesus Christ)I'm standing on a mountain highIn the valley of the Lord my God (Jesus Christ) by cereal-in-a-bowl
with trees so tall they touch the skies
here stands with me the Lord Jesus Christ
and the earth in exaltation
praise the Lord God on high
In the valley where flowers stream
colours burst at the seam
Jesus Christ the Lord my God
before Him all creatures gave Him laud
He raised His staff
winds blew gently
passed the trees
as roses rise above His knees
Songs of worship
kisses Him at His feet
Bless the Lord my soul
my saviour God
and my heart in His presence
swoon in defeat
that I should gaze into His awesome countenance
As the earth shift and began to turn
the clouds proclaim their random move
across the blue skies
and the sea which they sail upon
sparkle like diamond studs in Heaven's eyes.
and the flowers whose numerous names
fragrance this mortal earth
in colours bring man's soul to mirth
and the songs which they sing
uplifts even the drooping bud to rise and see
the glorious of King Jesus' majesty
across the kingdom here on earth
In the valley here on e
Stars scattered in the sea of blackStars scatters in the sea of black nightStars scattered in the sea of black by cereal-in-a-bowl
Sparkling like diamonds so high
Heaven radiates gloriously tonight
You can hear angels herald and praise God’s awesome glory
In the quiet skies
As the stars are catching forty winks
As the Heavens in great brilliance blinks
As the skies kept dripping blood red wine
Reminds me much of my King who wept in blood for my sins
And my soul sings alleluia
Great is the Lord
That His light shines even in the night skies
In the quiet fields lay
A sheep in awe at the skies
Wondering how the clouds could hide from the human eyes
When it was plainly in sight
Ah...clever manipulative creature it is
Covering itself as it slept that night
I was buried in the night
As Van Gogh painted on his canvas that night
I saw the light and a thousand kingdoms of kings
spread in the skies
and how their steeds ran across the fields of war
how the stars combusted and crumbled to dust
of gold and silver
they sparkled and shimmer
and in great astound
hit the fields and exp
After I went to Confession this morning I began to consider forgiveness. As I did, I returned again and again to myselfbut I don't mean egotistically. I reflected on when we sin, especially when it's that embarrassing, stupid, every-time sin, and how we tend to get upset with ourselves, feel ashamed, and many other things. For the one who has faith, he looks to Christ to forgive him. This in itself is not bad at all.
I then began to wonder: We reach out to be forgiven and we entreat God with sighs and tears. But the truest fruit of that forgiveness (and mercy) is a conversion, a change of heart. But I think there is another aspect, namely that we have to allow ourselves to be forgiven as well. If there is a gift that someone gives it must also be received. And how do we receive a gift? With gratitude, of course.
The gift of forgiveness, however, is no mere gift. It is one of the greatest gifts.
We should consider how the Lord sees us when He forgives us: he is like the bridegroom
The ego develops in order to mediate between the unrealistic id and the external real world. It is the decision making component of personality. Ideally the ego works by reason whereas the id is chaotic and totally unreasonable.
The ego operates according to the reality principle, working out realistic ways of satisfying the id’s demands, often compromising or postponing satisfaction to avoid negative consequences of society. The ego considers social realities and norms, etiquette and rules in deciding how to behave. ( www.simplypsychology.org/psych…
The superego is a product influenced by society and family background. The superego's role is to keep Id in check and is like the Holy Spirit who helps us to avoid sinful things like immoral acts and deviating from what is pleasing before God and His Holy words.
The superego consists of two systems: The conscience and the ideal self. The conscience can punish the ego through causing feelings of guilt. For example, if the ego gives in to the id's demands, the superego may make the person feel bad through guilt.
The ideal self (or ego-ideal) is an imaginary picture of how you ought to be, and represents career aspirations, how to treat other people, and how to behave as a member of society.( www.simplypsychology.org/psych…
I had taken a pile of newspaper articles for a student to take as a model to writing. When most of the students had left,I took the pile of newspapers back and arranged them neatly before placing it back. When I did I came across a verse by Mark Twain, "To succeed in life you need two things; ignorance and confidence" and to me that felt like Jesus telling me that I must believe in Him and ignore the lies I hear.
I think all three parts of my ego were struggling. I believe so anyway. On the way back I resolute to get medicine for my discomfort. The travel back from work in the car with my earthly mum was painful. She kept poking to ask me what was wrong and I was stubbornly insisting that she mind her business. I was angry at her because of what happened that morning. On the way back although I had bought food, I didn't have the appetite to eat.. Then I decided to sleep after taking a pill which I had from a previous discomfort.
As I reflected upon my discomfort, I recalled the reason why I had the pills for vomiting/food poisoning because my foster dad had been cruel on me verbally. THIS time the same effect took place when my earthly mum had commented cruelly that I would fail because I swam against the tide.
I had fallen asleep, when she had come up to tell me we're going for a wedding I was still feeling kind of groggy. She picked up the pills which I had taken and then yelled at me for not telling her I wasn't feeling well.
I said I was okay and I said I wished she wouldn't treat me like a child. Then she said I WAS a child and that I was childish. I said I wish she would let go of the 'rope' which she was holding onto and let me grow. Then she went on about how I don't return her love and how much she sacrificed for me and how she didn't get married for my sake.
Then on the way to the wedding I thought about talking to a friend. As I sat in the car, my dad and earthly mum commented on the way I dressed and the bag I was carrying. I thought to myself that why should I come in pretense? Actually, It was true that I could've dressed better but I was wearing jeans and a polo shirt. Anyway, the couple who were wed weren't really strangers. Only the bride side. I knew the groom's family as they were my grandaunt and uncle.
I spoke to a friend whom I confided to most of the time. Even at the time I still felt discomfort. I thought about suicide but that of course wouldn't have solved anything. My friend had comforted me and said he would pray for me and that was that. I had heeded his advice of going back to the party and sat down for the dinner. I drank some tea which made me feel better. As the dinner was served a slide of the groom and bride's childhood life was shown. Immediately I felt like I was going to cry. I decided to go to the toilet to have a good cry. When I was in the toilet, which was REALLY clean....I felt the need to talk to someone and I did. When I spoke to her I started crying, as I continued to talk to her I cried even harder. Then she prayed for me on the phone. The longer she prayed,the calmer I felt and I stopped crying hard. Then something miraculous happened;
The stomach discomfort and the feeling of indigestion DISAPPEARED. I felt hungry again. Jesus HEALED me. Alleluia. When I returned to the dinner table. My foster parents asked;
"What happened? Are you alright? Hey, a while back you looked sleepy and tired and now you look much more alive..."
I said yeah...I felt much better.
....now I feel hungry...
Then she said 'I tried to contact the person in charge of the reading coz you said you weren't feeling well just now. I tried calling all my church friends who may know her but I couldn't! Huh, maybe God wants you to read tomorrow...'
Praise God. He heals. I had attended the wedding initially because I didn't want to stay in the house sick, because I wanted to go to mass (today) on Sunday so I forced myself to put a brave front. This reminded me of the woman who was subjected to bleeding all her life in LUKE 8:40-47
As Jesus was on His way, the crowds almost crushed Him. And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her. She came up behind Him and touched the edge of His cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped.
“Who touched Me?” Jesus asked.
When they all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the people are crowding and pressing against You.”
But Jesus said, “Someone touched me, I know that power has gone out from Me.”
Then the woman , seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at His feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched Him and how she had been instantly healed. Then He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.”
and thus is the goodness of the Lord. What little faith I had and though little faith I had, the desire to have Him as healing, had saved me. It is because God loves me and that I am His child, that I am made sound. So believe, that He shall heal you and you are in His fold. He shall never forsake you.
