Be Mine

This may have nothing to do with the rest of the post, or it may, but I want to share this first.  I got to spend some time with an amazing sister here at the convent.  I was able to share only a small handful of the writings that I have been inspired to write.  She provide some really good insight and observations that she found in my writing.  It was really good to hear and much-needed.

Last night we got to go to Catholic Underground in LA.  It is not huge like it is in New York, but either way, we got to go.  While there in adoration, these words came to my heart then to my pencil and paper. 

—–

My friend, my brother, dear Jesus;

Is that you in my head?

Father, could you be calling;

That noise in my heart?

Spirit are you the breeze,

That wind that moves me?

Mother Mary, maybe it’s you,

The one that I hear inside.

One or all, why this call?

It penetrates me tonight;

Be mine, I hear, be mine!

How am I to do that,

This weak stumbling tired soul,

Unable to truly be myself.

Brother, how do I become like you?

Be mine you say over and over.

Father, What am I to do here?

Be mine you say over and over.

Spirit, how will I feel your presence?

Be mine you say over and over.

Mother, how can I trust them all?

Be mine you say over and over.

If that is all it takes,

Why is it so very hard?

Yet still the refrain repeats.

Be mine, dear sister, be mine.

Be mine, dear child, be mine.

Be mine, dear soul, be mine.

Be mine, dear daughter, be mine.

Be mine, I am yours.

Thank you for reading.  Remember where they came from and leave them here please.  I would appreciate it very much.

Having Life

Surfing blogs really can give you some inspiration on what to write about.  I came across this blog and decided I wanted to write on the bible verse in it.  As you noticed, the link is there to give credit to where I found inspiration.

“You search the scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that testify on my behalf.  Yet you refuse to come to me to have life.”  John 5:39-40

So many people get so stuck in just the bible and forget that there is a personal relationship to be had with Jesus as well.  Don’t get me wrong, I think reading scripture is very important.  For me, I should read it more as I don’t really do it.  That is not the point though.  Read scripture or not, that is not the way to have life.  It did not take a bible verse for me to believe that; the bible verse just helps my point.  Again, don’t get me wrong.  Scripture is good too, just not the way to have life.

Where I want to go with this, I am not completely sure.  I do know that this quote really stood out to me.  Read scripture, that’s great.  Don’t forget to take time to pray and come to have life by going to Jesus.  He, with the Father and Holy Spirit, will guide you where you are to have fullness of life.  It is okay to question, people do doubt in the world sadly.  The human race is weak on their own.

Don’t let those who want to bash you over the head with a bible get the best of you.  Don’t let those who forget the bible lead you astray.  Have life in Jesus and read about Him.  Be true and keep on searching, the search never stops.  Be unlike the people Jesus is talking about in that bible passage, go to Him to have life.
