Endless

 



The love of God is endless and boundless. It is ever present, sparklingly beautiful, ever flowing, all enduring. What an incredible energy we receive when we  find this love and receive it. 

It flows, lifts, heals, upholds us. It is beyond words. It is unfathomable in its breadth and depth.

 It is divine grace coming to touch us wherever we are in our lives, from the womb to our death and beyond,  we are immersed in this love that is available to transform and work miracles of healing in our lives. 

Praise God for the wonder of His love and the beauty  and mystery of his creation that we  incredibly are a part of. Amen

A blessing for those we have loved

 


We bless the people we have loved

No longer in the world


We hold each treasured memory up


For grace to bless and bind with love


We remember them with heart-felt sorrow


That they are no longer here


We bless each precious moment that they lived


And rejoice for all they were


The good, the hurt, the sad, the hopeful


May their song sing out a blessing here


May they find  peace beyond this life


May they comfort us, ever near


In thought and word


And heart-filled treasures


Of kindnesses along the way


Or special moments of inspiration:


A blessing for that day.

A prayer for a dear friend who has died

 



Lord help us know with absolute clarity

That she is safe with You still

Held in an Eternal moment of now


That cannot be lost,


For it is the very essence of Your being


In which we are all forever held


And where our spirits still touch


In love 


And embrace forever after. 


Amen

A prayer when struggling with grief and suffering



 Lord,

When we are struggling

And especially when we cannot see


How we will cope


Or bear another second of suffering


Or grief


Lead us in prayer


And lift us into Your Hope,


That Blesses, Heals, Strengthens, Guides,


Restores Faith and Direction.


Amen

Trinity

 



Trinity


In Truth we are held in the Love of the Trinity, the awesome Heart of Love and therefore we are one with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. How can that not bring new freedom from the tyranny of fear, the possibility of action from inaction and healing out of brokenness.

In great need



 Lord I am in pain

Yet nothing alleviates it.

I do not know what to do,

For all paths seem blocked to me.

Lord show me you Care for me.

Open up a path

That meets my need

And keeps me safe.

In You do I trust

To lead and guide

To protect  and save me.

Amen

Confidence in the Lord



When suffering feels beyond endurance, hold fast to the Lord and when you read a word of God or when you pray, we hope you find strength and peace in every word. Remember that God glistens to you in every word. And God blesses you with every single prayer.

With God, how far can you get above suffering, I ask?

How high can you get above pain?

God answers:

As far as the sky and as near as the breath, You can enter that Peace

of Loving Transcendent Mystery

And there find a Peace beyond all knowing. How wide is that Peace, I ask?

Why, it is as vast as the oceans

And way beyond all the stars

That sparkle through the Universe.

It is as huge as the sea is to a raindrop.

It is as comforting as an endless tender hug. It is as gentle as a fleecy coat

of the finest spun lambs wool. It is always and everywhere Forever sparkling to bless you.
