So Will I 

God of creation 
There at the start

Before the beginning of time

With no point of reference

You spoke to the dark

And fleshed out the wonder of light

And as You speak

A hundred billion galaxies are born

In the vapor of Your breath the planets form

If the stars were made to worship so will I

I can see Your heart in everything You’ve made

Every burning star

A signal fire of grace

If creation sings Your praises so will I
God of Your promise

You don’t speak in vain

No syllable empty or void

For once You have spoken

All nature and science

Follow the sound of Your voice
And as You speak

A hundred billion creatures catch Your breath

Evolving in pursuit of what You said

If it all reveals Your nature so will I

I can see Your heart in everything You say

Every painted sky

A canvas of Your grace

If creation still obeys You so will I

So will I

So will I
If the stars were made to worship so will I

If the mountains bow in reverence so will I

If the oceans roar Your greatness so will I

For if everything exists to lift You high so will I

If the wind goes where You send it so will I

If the rocks cry out in silence so will I

If the sum of all our praises still falls shy

Then we’ll sing again a hundred billion times
God of salvation

You chased down my heart

Through all of my failure and pride

On a hill You created

The light of the world

Abandoned in darkness to die
And as You speak

A hundred billion failures disappear

Where You lost Your life so I could find it here

If You left the grave behind You so will I

I can see Your heart in everything You’ve done

Every part designed in a work of art called love

If You gladly chose surrender so will I

I can see Your heart

Eight billion different ways

Every precious one

A child You died to save

If You gave Your life to love them so will I

Like You would again a hundred billion times

But what measure could amount to Your desire

You’re the One who never leaves the one behind

So will I ( 100 billion X) – Hillsong United

Awake oh Sleepers!

This post from a few years ago is fresh on my heart this week, especially as we approach Christmas, the coming of the Divine Infant, and also the New Year. 

Are we making room for Him to come into our lives? He has tremendous gifts to give right now to the souls who let Him in.

 So many souls are sleeping 

Mar 7 2014 
This passage is really coming to mind as I write and reflect today:

‘But at midnight there was a cry, ‘Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ 7 Then all those maidens rose and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ 9 But the wise replied, ‘Perhaps there will not be enough for us and for you; go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.’ 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast; and the door was shut.

 
After confession last night I stayed for Mass, and after communion, as I began to envision Jesus there with me, in an instant I felt His Presence very strongly, and there He was, the Jesus from The Visual Gospel of Matthew that I often picture-but He wasn’t smiling as usual, instead He was deeply sorrowful. It took me by surprise, I actually put my hand to my mouth!
— Father please! They crucify me all over again! — After a moment He continued– Hearts are so cold. So shut off from Me, — Now His head was in His hands, and I felt the same–things are so bad! — that even the great shaking I have planned can not wake many of them! (I sensed this referred to the illumination but also the chaos that will precede it)
So many souls are sleeping! -They need to be woken up- and yet so many have heard the call, but are hitting the SNOOZE button! I have great treasures I want to pour into My Children (to prepare them) before the darkness comes, but souls refuse to ask for them.
–Oh, make my heart READY Lord!
After Mass I watched as a care taker snuffed the candle… It’s coming, so soon. The light of God will go out completely in the world for a time, living on only in the hearts of the faithful.
‘My children perish for lack of knowledge.’ (Hosea 4:6) The few who even hear have closed their hearts to this word. You must continue to warn them. The cost of ( your) silence is measured in souls- yours too. ( to whom much is given….)
The watchmen are weeping because the world isn’t listening. Their ears have gone dead to the words… The -“End of the World”, the “apocalypse” has been predicted and forecast like the boy who cried wolf, such that very few still have ears to hear.
From Father’s Homily, Harden not your hearts : “When we know in our heart that God is asking us to do something, we need to step out and do it! …Then, if today we hear God’s voice, ‘ have you hardened your hearts?’ We can say, no Lord, I have done what You asked.”

Journey to Quebec


These are my notes of some of what I learned etc as I drove across the country to our new home. 

Journey up: 

Day 1: NS to Edmunston 

Even if surrender.
God, even if _________happens, still I will trust You. 
SO Often, it’s only when I begin to release the thing I want… that God comes in ( either to give it anyway, or else w the comfort and peace) 

— also take life as it comes, take the day AS IT COMES- instead of trying to manipulate and have things a certain way..
– same w Charles , take him, and the kids as they come too. Hear the voice and Will of The Lord in his words and requests. 

Advent lyrics, Paul Overstreet:

Wise men still seek Him

Those on earth who realize how much they need Him
Following Jesus wherever He may lead them

Wise men, still seek Him ‘
Day 2: NB to Ottawa 

33 days consecration: 
The Holy Spirit does nothing without His spouse, thus she is the mediatrux of all grace 

Recognize the multitude of mercies – through her spouse the Holy Spirit!!!

EXAMEN- to not complain- focus on the good things God is doing in our lives!!
COVENANT!

-Total dependence

-Accept all as coming from her loving hands 

-Constant recourse to her

-Purity of intention SELF DENIAL!!

Walk in faith while pondering in your heart. 

Day 3: Ottawa – Quebec!
Oh yeah…

That when I accept these little setbacks, etc, and bring so tired, or sore and continue driving ( continuing along God’s will) — I am carrying my cross.

Every time I decide I’d rather do things another way than what is- I am throwing my cross to the ground. 
Oh yeah- back home, my day to day life was still mine, to make with what I chose each day, but now, now my life is Yours… I mean I came all the way up here for You!!! And That fact won’t change. 

And as we drive in, everything is snow dusted and so pretty! And my heart feels strangely at home w all the farms in the hills.

Lamps with Oil

Sept 1

 

This morning the daily gospel was the parable of the 10 virgins
This is so a parable for our world today. There are so many people who are not wise.
Christ is coming, we have reason to believe not the coming at the end of the world but that Christ is coming in a very special way to His people. And He’s going to be coming soon, and after He comes the door will be shut.
The foolish were late and when they did finally come The Lord didn’t know them.
That is why it is so important to make time to spend w God. Because it is the ones who spend time with Him, now, that He will know, because they took the time to know Him.

The foolish took their lamps as well, they wanted God, but they didn’t have any oil for their lamps because they never put in the time.
And then it was too late. The door was shut.
The wise are those spend time w God
it’s so important to make that time to spend w Him, more important right now than anything else.

I Am in Everything

A conversation with God

Aug 9 2015

 

Heavenly Father, Daddy God, please come and fill me with Your powerful creative love.

I Am in EVERYTHING. Every breeze, every leaf, every weed growing in your front yard. 

Every car too? Well yes, every atom of matter is You! You hold everything together…

I am in every body, every cell, every soul that you meet, great and small, angry or kind. I am in every heart, though not all know it. 

It is love that does all this. My love for My creation, for My children, is higher than the heavens and infinitely more vast than the universe. No instrument of technological achievement could ever probe it’s depths, it is something that can only be felt in the heart. 

Yes Lord, and there are times when that love touches mine and it’s so vast, it’s HEAVY! It’s thick and bursting, my little heart can not possibly hold it, Lord, it seems that here You only give us the tiniest of tastes! 

It’s true, and no man on earth can grasp it either, not even the Saints, though they come much closer than most. 

You are my daughter! I will love you forever, I will like you always, as long as I’m living My child you will be.

Glory

 This is the true glory of God: a love, that thinks only of the other, and not of itself.
