Divinized Day (Part 2)

In Part 1 of Divinized Day I wrote that when all day long we live the true spirit of the Morning Offering, and that is to think, to speak, to do, and to suffer for the love of God through our Lord Jesus and in His Name, then we will enjoy a blessed happy day, thanking God for a great priviledge He has gifted us.

A Divinized Day is a day wherein we make continuous acts of love and gratitude to the God. However we have to unite all of these with all the merits of the Passion and Precious Blood of Jesus being offered in all the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass everyday in the world.

When the Blessed Mother spoke to my heart about the kind of offering I made to Jesus (stated in Part 1), I started to reflect on the deep meaning of this prayer. I had learned to be very creative in everything i did and learned to really enjoy them because love gives joy to the soul.

Let me thus explain through my own experiencial knowledge of this beautiful privilege and gift of God not only to me but to you, my friends as well.

Divinized Day

Often times I ask my listeners about their attitudes in what they do at home, at their place of work, in their communities, etc. And most of the time their answers varied according to what they do. One answered, she hated her household chores. When I asked her why, she readily answered it was too boring for her. Another said it was too much heavy for her, and so on. A man said he hated his boss and associates and other numberless things to grumble about. Ha ha ha ha ha!….i remembered I was like them before.

Until, one morning, as i half-heartedly folded my laundry, I heard a sweet but sad voice in my heart, asking me, “Is that what you are offering to My Son?” It was then that I recognized it was the Blessed Mother speaking to my heart.

I Silently Cry To Myself

Today, as I silently cry to myself
I promised..
I will try to get my life back
I will try to change the direction of my destiny
that had gone wayward.

Today, as I silently cry to myself
I try to soothe the pain and the hurt
I try to lift up myself
I try to encourage myself that I can get back
my feet on the ground.

Today, as i silently cry to myself
I tell myself to be strong
I tell myself I can handle this
I tell myself I can go on.

Today, as I silently cry to myself
I call on God to help me with
what I am going through.
I lift it up to HIm and say “Thy will be done”.

I realized, I cannot silently cry to myself
I realized, I have to cry to Him
I realized, I cannot handle this alone.

Then, I silently cry, not to myself.
I silently cry and call on help!

Bible Reference for Meditation and Reflection:

1 Corintians 10:13 – God is faithful and will not let you be tried beyond your strength; but with the trial He will also provide a way out, so that you may be able to bear it.

Romans 8:37 – In all these things we conquer overwhelmingly through Him who loved us.

Yes, my friends, like Paul, we can say to ourselves, “Through Jesus Christ , who loves us, we will be completely victorious in everything.” Amen,

Inspirational Poem: Love

Let us learn and be aware
that joy and desolation
live together in this world.

Once, I tried to break away
from being a slave of desolation
but it ran after me
to imprison me again
in his kingdom of darkness,
of fears and confusions
of so many negative emotions.

And so, I ran faster….and faster
and still faster until I was breathless
and then
I met LOVE!

I greeted her
with my very sad smile
but she opened wide her arms
and embraced me tightly
with a happy smile.

LOVE possessed me!!!!
I am so grateful believing
i can do everything now
with love, with joy
and face adversities with serenity
and a SMILE!

Now, I am secured
with the thought that
I am loved, so must
give LOVE
in return!

Inspirational Poem: Prayer

My friend,

if we clothe everything we do
with prayers, love, faith and hope
and lace it with a
forgiving heart
then miracles happen.

if at first, we fail to notice them
let’s look again….and again…..and again
and slowly, we will perceive
with the eyes of faith
what naked eyes failed
to behold in awe and wonder.

for

if we pray, our starving faith
will be nourished
and it will produce more love
that will make us alive
with zeal leading us into action
for idle faith will not bring us
to the fulfillment
of our dreams.

If you believe me, my friend
then, our love,
our faith,
our hope
our forgiving
will sing together
with the melody of the prayer
of thanksgiving to God
for the birth of receiving much
and giving more!

Inspirational Poem: Today

Arise, my friend
it’s dawn again!

Look to the east
and watch
as the horizon slowly
brings birth to the sun.

Ah!!! our sun
is shining again
it’s every rays bring hope
breaking all the clouds of hopelessness.

Come and enter
the shining beauty
of TODAY!

Smile!
Rejoice!

Greet TODAY
with a grateful heart.

God gives sunshine
after the rain!

Inspirational Poem: Wisdom

Life is a continuous journey
of learning and learning
of experiencing the joys of fulfillment
the pains and sorrows
of making the wrong turns
in the crossroads of life
of struggling to overcome
the giant waves
in the sea of life
of striving to surmount
the vicious cycle
of the vicissitudes in life.

But our trials and errors
should not cloud our vision
of hitting the mark
nor should it be an obstacle
in reaching the end of the rainbow
of our dreams.

Let us remember that
WISDOM is the fruit
of the mistakes we committed
in the past.

The past is so valueable
for what we are today.
